Mix And Match

I was recently shopping at one of those big box stores when I spotted some flannel sheet sets for a bargain price. I was hesitant to spend the money because they were sealed in plastic bags and I couldn't assess the quality, but I thought that for only $35 a set, it was worth taking a chance. They proved to be exceptional value for money, with beautiful soft flannel and sheets that actually fit over the mattress and box-spring without having to virtually rip them in two to make them reach!

Sadly, the sets don't include a duvet cover, so I was left wondering what to do about this when I spotted this floral design at that big blue and yellow store...I never would have considered combining stripes and florals until I saw some lovely combinations on other blogs and I have to admit that I am feeling pleased with this effect.
