Q: My name is Wendy and my family lives in Alexandria, VA. We bought our house a year ago and since then we've been busy trying to make it feel like home. Our latest project is our daughter's bedroom and I feel like we are almost there, except we appear to be stuck on the bedding... So right now is just a lavender blanket with white sheets. Can you offer any suggestions as far as colors, patterns or textures?

Editor: Wendy- what a great room! We love the accent wall and think the room can definitely grow with your daughter. We love to see a quilt or coverlet on the bed, preferably a big puffy comforter in this weather! You don't mention her age, but we assume the twin bed is a sign she is younger; if you do invest in a high quality comforter, consider buying a bigger size so you can continue to use it even is she transitions to a larger bed in the future. With your current colors, we like the following patterns:
- Wildflower or Tropical Punch organic duvets from PBTeen
- La Fleure Boheme from Land of Nod
- Xhilaration Floral from Target
Readers, what do you think?
