I bought this bed for a steal at an auction, but would like to get end tables & bedding to liven it up. I'm about to move (hooray for finally being able to paint walls), so I am working with a blank slate concerning the color palette. Any suggestions on a great bedding site? I've looked at all of the regulars. My mother-in-law is decent with a sewing machine, so a great fabric swatch would also work. Also, what end tables would you suggest? The barley twist ones I currently have are a little too "matchy."
Thanks so much! Jason

What you want to do here is move beyond primary colors and bold patterns into something more sophisticated. We would look at a mix of rich neutrals and muted colors with white and spice it up with colorful pillows and throws.
Here is our list of Top 10 Bedding Shops, which pretty much says all we know on the subject and has a great list of comments as well.
As for those side tables if you've got $$, we'd go to Martha Stewarts collection for Bernhardt, and if you're on a budget, we'd go to Pottery Barn and look at the Tanner Collection's round side table, which would add two new materials to your bedroom and lighten it up.
