I’d been on the casual look-out for a new quilt cover for a while so when I decided to share, on this here blog, my master bedroom make-over, the pressure was suddenly on to actually find – and commit to buying – one.

The problem is, I may be just a tad fussy sometimes….what, no gasps of surprise?

I wanted something; white, textural, not too girly, not too masculine, that wouldn’t wrinkle after two seconds, was casual yet chic, would stand the test of time and was reasonably priced.

Sooo, imagine my surprise when today I discovered a quilt cover with all that actually did exist!

It’s a bit hard to tell from the photos though it’s a quilted cover with a subtle all-over chrysanthemum stitch. It came with matching pillow shams and I was so excited I bought two euro covers too (they have a slightly more intricate pattern so should create a nice contrast). I got everything on clearance for $140 total.

I’m hoping to pair all this white goodness with some natural linen loveliness. I already have the two cushions as shown, so now all I need is a linen throw – which I think I’ll probably end up making myself.

I am slightly ashamed to admit we’ve been using a coverless quilt for way too long now so I can not wait to get my bed all dressed-up proper like!

And on a different note, I just picked up the gorgeous chippy green vintage step-stool on the weekend. I didn’t know where I was gonna put it or what I was gonna use it for though for $40 I just couldn’t say ‘no’.
