Lately, I feel like we’ve been tearing away a lot of elements in the guest room. We stole the art for our bedroom. The curtains for the office. And the rug, briefly, too. (It’s made it’s way back in here because I felt so bad. Really.) The room was looking pretty bare and we had guests coming to stay with us for a few days. While we didn’t have time to focus on a full revamp, I thought swapping out the wintry bedding for something more fresh would give the room the lift it needed–and it really did!

I ordered these pretty floral sheets and a light striped duvet on eBay! Did you know 81% of all merchandise sold on eBay is new and available with the “Buy It Now” option (no bidding necessary). And 69% of items ship for free. I love checking the site to find things from my favorite brands all in one spot.

These moody floral pattern of these sheets stopped me in my tracks. It feels Spring-y but not grandma-springy. You know? They have a bunch of sizes, but I got the queen set by Tribeca Living here for $61 (down from $167).

The duvet cover (could use a steamer) is lightweight, a welcomed changed from the flannel one we had here for the winter months, and was a steal! A queen duvet cover and shams by Home Collection for $29, down from $99.

The two patterns mix really well and add some light-heartedness.

eBay is having a really large Spring bedding event right now. You can check out the full selection of bedding marked down 60% right here. I put these stippled light gray sheets in my cart (less than $30 for a king! and so cute!) and I’m stocking up for the girls’ room, too.

Happy Weekend! Happy Spring!

    I love this room and the bed is so beautiful with floral and stripe patterns. I am admirative
    I’m french so I don’t understand well the different beds sizes… Could you tell me the measures of the tribecca floral sheet in queen size? thank you very much

  2. Julia says:

    this bedroom is beautiful!

    Is this bed the Antique Dark Bronze? It looks black in your pictures, and lighter on Wayfair!

    Hoping it looks as dark as possible :)

  3. Sarah says:

    This is beautiful! Where did you get the green velvet pillows?

  4. JUDITH says:

    What do I think?!?!? I think this bedroom is gorgeous, fabulous, serene, perfectly appointed, creative and I think…no I WISH this bedroom was mine! Congratulations on your shopping savvy and your beautiful new bedroom.

    You have renewed my determination to stop by eBay regularly. I tend to go at it in fits and starts. Our daughter, an interior designer, is forever finding unique pieces to give just the “right touch” to her client’s homes.

  5. Kristin says:

    This room is beautiful! I’d like to do something similar in our master bedroom. With a king size bed, would you recommend putting something over the bed? If yes, what? A larger, framed pic?

  6. Grace says:

    I’m constantly looking for new bedding (partially due to the big dog who thinks it’s her bed), and I hadn’t considered eBay! Such a great idea. Thank you!

    Hi there,

    Do you have a source listed somewhere for the hardware on all your interior doors? I looked thru “shop our house”, but didn’t see it listed.
    We have been looking at something very similar, but thought I would check what you used. Are the black or bronze?

    Hi your kitchen is so fabulous! I found it when looking for tips on installing the Ikea LAXARBY doors. I have a issue with some of the interior white from the box showing through to the front, on a corner and with the dark LAXARBY doors, which I love, it looks really bad.I was wondering if you experience this or if you have the darker base interior or if you use or if you have heard of anyone using paint or the sticking vinyl tape stuff? I know that they are installed correctly. Your advice would be much appreciated!
    Thank you so much.

  9. Aimee says:

    Any helpful hints on finding the pendant light in this room. The link just goes to the Wayfair web page and not the actual light. And their are 200 pages of pendant lights to wade through. ???? thank you so much!

  10. Kari says:

    How heavy are these floral sheets? It says flannel in the description and I live in the south! Think they are too cozy for my climate?

  11. Jen says:

    I love those sheets ???? I know they’re flannel, but how heavy would you say they are? Do you think they’d be ok for year round use? Thanks!

  12. Kate says:

    I love all of your bedding choices! Would you consider doing a post on sheet/duvet/pillow combos? I have a hard time pattern mixing and you do it so well! What is your secret?!

    • Julia says:

      I like to mix an organic design (flowers) with something more rigid (like stripes.) Or a small pattern (like a pinstripe) with a larger pattern (like a windowpane grid). Or if there could be a common color theme with the small, medium, or large pattern!

It’s been over a year since we started designing our bathroom. We were working with Unique Kitchens and Baths for the cabinetry, and they came up with two different layouts. We selected one, tweaked it a bit and chose a lot of the finishes…annnnnd honestly we could never quite give the final “go ahead.” This […]
