Yes - really debating the big issues with this topic!! The dog, cat and children were playing on our bed last night and ripped a massive hole in our quilt cover. The one that ripped was a dark charcoal waffle type colour cover. The only problem is that the curtains that dominate our room are really difficult to co-ordinate with Would prefer something not quite as dark as what we had as it gets covered in dog hair the day we put it on!
So design gurus - hit me with your quilt cover ideas - the curtains are similar to this wallpaper http://www.vectorious.net/img-damask-wallp...round-13305.htm
Thanks in advance!

Yellows and duck egg blues go great with charcoal.
I buy a lot of stuff from Adairs. Try www.adairs.com

I would just go for something plain white, perhaps with a texture or pattern to it, then layer with a charcoal blanket or quilt at the foot of the bed.

That sounds lovely Credence - but should have said I have a black cat which sheds and sleeps for about 18 hours a day on the bed. I will take a look boatibabe - thank you!

I love this one, but you may need to phone around the stores for the right size

Love the first one IsolaBella and love that one in cream Clever Chook - see this is why I ask EB - all fab suggestions
Posted 06 December 2012 - 01:35 PM
I love the ones IsolaBella suggested for me, lol, but I have a quilt cover fetish. I used to go down to the Actil/Sheridan outlet(It was a 1 minute drive from my house lol) when I was having a down day and buy a quilt cover or sheets now they are building a housing estate on the site . They were a very good price so not extravagant.

I have only been looking as getting my mum one for Christmas.
She has a French thing so the promenade one for her.

I think my Daughter would love that French themed one too IsolaBella!

it's a lovely chair all right.
Damn, they did have some darker ones the other day, they must have sold out.

I have no suggestions but I wish my bedroom decor was any of those in the pictures....

Try cottonbox.com.au - it's a good way to compare different brands, and you can search by brand, colour etc.
I've ordered some cushions from them... very speedy postage (if they don't put it on backorder; if they do they give you the option to cancel).

too much flower?
Posted 06 December 2012 - 02:42 PM
I like the suggestion of the plain white cover with colourful accessories. But it wouldn't work in our house!
some colour ....

Love the Brooklyn slate cover Yoda and I do love the colour and design of the cover you suggested Mummy1 - but I think too much flower! Emils - I will check out cottonbox and trust me Greeneggjimmyjam - even with a fab new cover my bedroom wont resemble those photos

I work at Sheridan.
If you can't wait for boxing day sales and you want something from Sheridan join the free VIP club it gives you advance notice of sales. I think it is 30% off everything atm but it goes up to 40 (45 with the VIP card)
I am a big fan of white white white with a throw or folded coverlet and some cushions to make a statement pop of colour. These can be updated with the season.
There is a fab linen cover called Abbotson in alchemy which is a paler charcoal and may suit with some white accessories.
Also the current colour fave chartreuse looks terrific with charcoals Sheridan have some but I am sure other places do as well.
