I Could Use A Little [MORE] Help!

Friends, I need your help! In my last post I mentioned that Cody and I are soon going to be getting a new comforter for our bedroom. I was originally thinking an all white comforter with  pops of yellow and  robins egg blue throughout the room...but today when I was at Target (one of my favorite places to find house things on sale) I came across a different comforter that I really love the look of, and I'd love to hear your opinion on it. Unfortunately, I can't copy the picture from the website but here is the link to the comforter (it's actually a coverlet); you can check it out there.

It's grey and yellow which is a color combination that I am absolutely loving right now, but my main concern is that I might possibly not be as crazy about the color combination someday. Plus, I know with an all white comforter (like my previous plan) I could eventually change my color scheme from the yellows, blues, and white to another color pallet someday if I wished. Basically I am undecided and I would really like to hear all of your thoughts and advice. What do you think of the comforter from Target? Do you think going with an all white comforter would be a better decision in the long run?

I can't wait to hear all of your thoughts about this and until then here are some of my favorite images of bedroom images that include both styles...yellow, grey & white decor and all white comforters with pops of color...perhaps with these images in mind, you can help me determine which way to go with my bedding. Thank you for your help in advance! :)

What about sticking with white, but buying a cute sheet set instead? You'll be able to fold over the white cover if you're in the mood for a little pattern from the sheets.

Hello Lovely,

I love your colour choices for your room..I think it will work a treat. I LOVE that comforter you have your eye on at Target...and the price is reasonable too...but well...from my experience...when I have purchased colourful bed covers with bold prints for my room...I do get bored with it after a while..and want a change. I think if you are watching your purse strings..then stick to basic is a good blank canvas to start with..and you can always change the colour scheme to suit your mood or season as they change...with throw rugs , cushions, flowers in the room. White never dates..and I think you will get more use of it.
Good luck sweety..cant wait to see what you come up with :) x

The target set is lovely and it is a good price so if you get tired of it, it isn't so bad, but seeing as you are unsure to start with I would stick to the all white comforter set and add colour by using cushions, sheets and throws. Let us know what you decide in the end. xx

Thank you all for such great advice! xx

Kasey: I love the idea of a cute and printed sheet..much cheaper than buying a new comforter each time I feel the need for change.

Anna: I think we share the indecisive, always changing our mind gene! :)

Nellie: I think the great price of the Target comforter is what has made this choice difficult, but I definitely agree with what you've said.

Hi Carly:) I know I am late with my comment, so so sorry (darn maths assignment)!! I agree with all of the gorgeous ladies above. I love the comforter, but if you think you may change your misn in the near future, then I think a white cover and some colourful sheets would be a great idea. Can;t wait to see what you decide on though as ultimately it is your decision and I am sure it will look gorgeous:) Hope you are having a wonderful week ~ Tina x
