nautical. I figured that I was close to the beach and I wanted to show off my seafaring ways.
Except that try as I might, I could not warm up to the cool colors. And the masculinity. And the lack of femininity.
rich florals to put some girly into my room.
Except ... that was right either. It wasn't until a couple of weeks later (having slept on the sheets and washed them and rendered them "unreturnable") that I realized the problem lay with the dark colors of the sheets and the dark blue pictures/plates over the bed. Not willing to run right out and purchase yet another set of sheets, I just pulled my mattelasse cover up (instead of folding it down), found a new accent pillow in the pile o' pillows in my closet and (ok, I admit it) purchased the two rectangular plates, combining them with others I already owned.
The new plates were purchased at HomeGoods. The others are old enough that I haven't a clue.
It's enough to make a girl sigh.
