Really this post is about our master bedroom. So far, its my favourite room in the house. I knew I wanted grey because I was sick of having brown tones in my bedroom since I have had that forever, and grey is the new brown of course. And then I would need an accent colour. I thought to myself I thought, teal would look lovely. So I decided on a teal accent wall.
That was the easy part. Finding a duvet cover in grey was incredibly difficult. I finally found one that wasn't too feminine at Bed, Bath and Beyond, and had a gift card from an engagement gift that paid for half of it! I know it looks like a simple duvet cover, but I seriously looked everywhere and couldn't find one that wasn't $200 or more!
Then I needed to bring teal into other aspects of the room. I could not find teal pillows anywhere.
My mom and I went on one of those Christmas home tours where they stage homes with furniture and Christmas decorations. I think we were really just creeping on other peoples homes, but that's ok. The last house we went to, I walked into the bedroom and almost had a heart attack. Well not really, but I was pretty effing excited. (It's ok if I say effing right?) There were teal pillows! I looked at the tags, Pier 1! Then I turn around and there are teal decor balls on the dresser, oh happy day! I look at the bottom, Pier 1! Believe it or not, at this point I still hadn't figured out that Pier 1 was the sponsor of this home. Geesh.
