I tore it out, and the next day when I looked again, I realized that the chevron pillows are similar to a vintage blanket I bought recently.
I could achieve the same effect if this were folded at the end of the bed.
So, I think I have to use the Coastal Living picture as inspiration for our very boring, very beige bedroom:
How about standard shams in this pattern from West Elm?
And some euro shams in the mustard (also from West Elm) to bring that color in elsewhere on the bed.
Here's my inspiration pic again for reference.
And this $150 upholstered headboard from Walmart with a home made white ribbon and nailhead trim treatment?
And maybe some of this smaller patterned vintage gold and white fabric made into a throw pillow for fun.
For the bedside tables, a pair of these ceramic lamps from Goodwill that I've had stashed away forever. They need the tacky home-made paint treatment from the 80s scraped off and some pretty barrel shades added.
It's so much more fun to dream than it is to do, isn't it?
