There is so much I want to do in that space but I am trying to pace myself because, you know, that little thing called a budget! I decided that the easiest and first things I wanted to update were bedding and paint. Well, I came across this beautiful VCNY Monica Turquoise Comforter Set and I just had to have it. We had our previous comforter set for around 5 years and it was time for an update! Naturally, I gravitated toward turquoise.
We have a queen size bed so I decided to purchase a king size comforter so it would flow down over the sides of the bed a bit. We had a bedskirt with our previous set and this set did not come with one. The only thing I didn’t think about was that the pillow shams would also be king size pillow shams – oops! So I have folded the shams around the back of the pillows so they’ll fit. It’s no big deal but it’s also not ideal. So just keep that in mind if you size up for your own bed!
So far I absolutely love this purchase. We’ve had it on our bed for around 2-3 weeks and it seems well made. It’s extremely soft and comfy. The only minor issue I have is that the details in the product photo aren’t exact. I read many of the reviews that stated this and chose to ignore them, hoping mine would be just like the picture. The product photos show a sewn in button detail on the folded over portion of the comforter and near the bottom. This is not on my comforter and I really liked that bit of detail! That being said, it’s true to color and it’s still very pretty and plushy! I would purchase it again!
I can’t wait to paint and add some decor above the bed. I haven’t decided exactly what I want to do just yet but you can bet that I’m hoarding all of my ideas over on Pinterest!
