My New Bed Cover – Anthropologie Anya Quilt

19 Apr

Now that our new bed is in place, it’s time to decorate the entire room.  It’s been a slow process and I haven’t quite known where to start.  We just made some headway however and picked out a new bedcover.  (Don’t worry – the acrylic art at the top of the bed is eventually going to GO!) :)

Anthropologie’s Anya Quilt.

Pieces of patches of folkloric voile on overlap into a mazurka of color and pattern.

Voile and Mazurka? Ha – no I didn’t write that, it is the description on Anthropologie’s website.

I was kind of shocked my husband agreed with this bedcover since it’s not too masculine.  But suprisingly, my husband actually picked this out!

It’s a big colorful change from our old bed cover.  I liked our old cover but it was very thick and heavy.  Now that summer is coming, something lighter was needed.

The new cover is thin, cool and light.  However not all is well.  I have somewhat of a kink in this good story.  The new Anthropologie cover is so thin, it tore!

Grrrr…

I thought about exchanging the cover but we had already used it a few times and probably would encounter the same tearing issue again with a replacement.

So it was either return it and get a different type of blanket or keep it.   We decided to keep it!

I am going to stitch up the tear.  The cover is such a fun eclectic statement, that we think the stitching will just add to it’s character.

By the way, check out the new side tables!  They are tables I restored with coffee bags and will tell you all about them soon!
