Desperate for a change in your bedroom, then change your bedspreads?
There is a new phasing in building industry which I pretty like. It goes like ‘don’t sell it, extend it’. It is very much the same concept if you are sick of the same old style in your bedroom or in your living room and feel the need to revamp it to straighten up your mood. It is very quite budget-friendly and effective to do re-vamping with the colour popping accessories like pillows, bedspreads and rugs to beat the blandness. The whole world is at your doorstep, especially if you are internet-savvy and ready to take on some search online to find the stuff you like.
Being bored of my own bedroom as you may have guessed and also heavily beaten by the winter blues, I took the plunge into the internet pool and started my search on Google for contemporary, minimalist and stylish products that I can lay on my bed; scattered here and there in my own private domain. It is great fun searching for the fabrics, colours & looks if you have any time for doing that of course! Apart from the giants like Amazon, John Lewis which always appear on the first line of the very first page on Google, there happens to be a lot of individual, boutique-like online shops offering very unique, not on the high-street type of products. And I do find them really charming. They are the gems of Google. Your patience to scroll down till the end of page one at least will be rewarded.
During my search on Google, I came across with this online shop specialised on Turkish Hammam Towels and other home textiles. It was the name that grabbed my attention first – Cotton & Olive. I found what I was looking for straight away under the Bedspreads & Throws tab. But what a find! I was thrilled with the colour options that I have been presented and also the uniqueness of the pattern they offer. This company is all about colour, I need to say. If you like to spice up your own living quarter and bring your very individual style then I would really recommend you to have a look at Cotton & Olive webpage. Their cotton bedspreads & throws are not all about black and grey at all. They are all about the tones of pink, red, purple, yellow, green, teal! Just suit your mood. Well at least this is what I have done.
After feeling lost for a good 15 minutes at this website and spoilt by the colour choices offered, I decided to click the check-out button for a double size cotton Accent Bedspread (this is how they name their product) in Yellow and Ida cotton throw in Green tones. I was really looking for the order to arrive soonest possible.. And it did in a very timely manner!
The colour of the bedspread was true yellow, exactly as it was shown on the webpage and I was ecstatic once I laid it over my bed sheet. What an instant transformation of mood! What a shot of vibrancy and beautiful soft texture! The simple herringbone pattern was also just right, neither too busy nor too bold. That was exactly what I was need to lift up my spirit and also to give a bit of soul to my tired looking bedroom. I spread the sofa throw over the arm chair in my living room for an extra layer of comfort and colour. I occasionally snuggle under the cotton blanket. It feels soft and has a lovely pattern which I really enjoy looking at.
I do recommend you have a look at Cotton & Olive especially if you love colour and also a simple yet contemporary look in your surroundings. It is very possible to refresh your room and also fix your mood with just 30 quid.
