I have always had all-white beds. White comforter, pillows, and coverlet. I find it soothing and fresh to climb into a king-sized puffball of white. But I have decided to branch out and get a colorful and patterned bedspread or quilt that I can layer over my existing white bedding.
Here are some beautifully patterned bedspreads and quilts in a rainbow of colors. Many are bohemian chic or Indian-inspired, my favorite look in textiles at the moment. Many are bold and bright. The way I see it, bedding is a wonderful place to dabble in new styles, textures and colors. If I feel I need a respite I can simply remove the top layer and return to snowy white neutrality!
