And then it got muggy

My bed was wearing this ensemble for a month, or so

and then it got muggy at night, so I switched to this much lighter quilt my mother-in-law made.

I’m going to keep posting the different “costume changes” my bed goes through as I document all the different combinations I can come up with using my collection of bedding.  I don’t know about you, but I get bored with the same old bedding day in and day out.  To me, it’s like wearing the same dress every day.  After a while, you just need a change.  That’s one of the great things about amassing a nice bedding collection, in the same family of colors, so I can mix and match ’til my heart’s content.  I keep adding pieces to it, as I did at Christmas, so the possibilities just keep on multiplying.  Plus, when you use a neutral base, such as black and white, you can add any number of colors to the mix to give it that special “flair”.  This collection has taken me years, though, and I’ve done it as economically as possible (except for my Dwell Studio for Target duvet cover and shams that I paid full price for and for which I am still ashamed…).

Who else has a collection of bedding going?  Please share!  I’d love to get some new ideas.
