Yes - really debating the big issues with this topic!!   cool.gif  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 sad.gif   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 like the Sheridan one.

I agree a white one would work with some dark throw pillows.  We bought this one in ivory and we love it, but it comes in white too.

Love the first one IsolaBella and love that one in cream Clever Chook - see this is why I ask EB - all fab suggestions original.gif

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 mad.gif . They were a very good price so not extravagant.

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).

I like the suggestion of the plain white cover with colourful accessories.  But it wouldn't work in our house!

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  ohmy.gif

Hi There

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.

Good luck wink.gif
