Green White and Black Floral Bedding

I am more than a little amazed at how many beautiful selections of bedding you can find online. That's precisely where I found my bedding for my master and guest bedrooms. My pick was green white and black floral bedding with big, bold and beautiful flowers.

Green White and Black Floral Bedding in the Master

During the Summer of 2010, I was getting a divorce and leaving my ex our beautiful Thomasville bedroom set. I started looking for a replacement bedroom set and fell madly in love with the Coastal Living Cottage collection from Stanley Furniture that I found at a local specialty store. I was interested in the Sea Grass green Summerhouse four poster, king-size bed. The discounted price was still a bit steep at about $1,800; so, I opted to pass up buying the bed at that time.

Several months passed, the divorce was finalized. I spent 3 months visiting mom in Brooksville, Florida and returned in January 2011 to accept a new job in Jacksonville, Florida. I was living in an apartment, so I wasn't in the market for a new bed. In April, I put a contract on a house and knew that I would need some furniture to fill it. I wasn't set to close until June, so I had plenty of time to shop. In May, I dropped back by that specialty store and found the Stanley Summerhouse bed was still available and for a better price. I bought it!

Compare this photo with the very next photo. That is the very same Green White and Black Floral Duvet Cover! In this photo, the black and white flowers are more prominent. Simply by flipping the duvet cover, you can achieve a different look. Check it out below!

With a Sea Grass green bed, you have a variety of options for bedding. I opted for coastal chic bedding. I was spending a lot of my free-time hours searching the internet to find the perfect duvet cover. When I first spotted the bold green white and black floral duvet cover, I knew that was the one for me.

I had searched Amazon and eBay completely to look at every single bold floral duvet cover. I actually ended up sourcing my duvet covers through another website. I can't remember what bedding website; when I find that information, I will share it! Oh, I also found a pair of matching shams through that same website, but had to scour eBay to find a second set of matching shams!

In the cooler months, I've used the darker duvet cover as shown in the first picture. For the warmer months, I've switched out to a lighter duvet cover that is predominantly white with large black bold flowers and a light green bird. As you can see in the second picture, the duvet cover works very well with the pillow shams from the first bedding set.

In my guest bedroom, I have a Vaughan of Virginia pickled oak bedroom set that I've had for at least 20 years. Although I have a queen-size bed, I've opted to use the king-size duvet covers which work in the Master. Again, I have carried my color scheme of green and white and black into the decor.

The lime green floral and white duvet cover is of the same fabric as the second duvet cover. This green is a bit brighter than the other green; it works quite well with the bright green on the bedroom walls. I found the two lime green and white leaf pillows at Home Goods. Directly behind are two black pillow shams with white and yellow bold daisies and yellow piping. And, behind those I have a long, black body pillow.

I hope I have inspired you with my own home decor selections. Maybe you have found that you too love the Coastal Living Cottage collection from Stanley Furniture? I'll be talking about that gorgeous furniture in another blog post soon.
