The New House: Bedding

Now that it’s December, I can officially say that we’ll be moving this month! It’s still a little crazy to me and doesn’t quite feel real yet, but I am very excited about getting into our first home.

Even though the contract is signed and things are moving (we close later this month), there are still places where the house is listed online so I’m not going to post pictures just yet – but they’ll definitely be here once we’re in the house.

Since I don’t want to put up pictures of the house yet, I figured I could at least show some of things we’ve bought for the house.

First up?


You’ve seen this quilt before, but this is the picture of the whole set.


This quilt / shams are from Kohl’s and are for the master bedroom.

We’ve been using this quilt for a few months now, and I love it. Since it’s a lighter weight quilt, we’ve layered it with a soft blanket above our sheets to keep us warm on these chilly winter nights.

As for our guest bedroom (our first ever real guest room!), I picked up this quilt at Kohl’s on Black Friday while it was on super sale.


The colors in this are even prettier up close. I love the deep rich chocolate brown paired with the crisp white and pale greens and blues.

And, we will have another guest room! But I didn’t buy any new bedding for that room – Nick’s mom and dad had a beige/cream quilt they weren’t using so we’re going to bring that home to use in the other room. It will actually be perfect because the room it’s going in has very busy wallpaper at the moment so a plain/simple.

I know some people don’t like quilts, but they will be great in this house. The home itself was originally built in the 1920s and I wanted to keep that feeling in the house while finding colors and prints that are a little more updated.

I can’t wait to show you pictures of the house!


  1. I like them both! I can’t wait to see pics of the house. SO excited for you guys!

  2. Love the look you’re going for–can’t wait to see everything come together!!

  3. I love the blue quilt! It’s so pretty! I can’t wait to see pictures of the new place! It’s so exciting!

  4. I love them both! I’m a quilt girl too! I once won an ebay bid on an estate sale quilt, but it was an unfinished quilt that the woman who was making it was unable to finish before she passed on. I felt I needed to find a way for that quilt to be finished in her honor! Once I received it, I passed it to my very talented Aunt and her quiliting group. They finished it and it’s gorgegous. Happy House decorating!

  5. So cool that the house was built in 1920 and that you’re celebrating its history with your design choices. Decorating a house must be so fun–albeit a little overwhelming, I’m sure!

  6. Love both of those quilts! Can’t wait to see the house!
