Add Bedding Details

Bedding can make a big difference in a bedroom. Most of the bedding I had been looking at for my daughter's bedroom makeover for the ORC was expensive and I just couldn't go there with my budget. Bedding can be expensive, but there are simple ways to add your own flare to inexpensive bedding or a sheet to create a chic look at a low cost.
 By adding coral grosgrain ribbon to a white Ikea duvet cover, I was able to create a timeless look. Here was my inspiration:
Bordeaux Bedding (Pink)
                                                          Land of Nod ($198)
                   
                                                             Crane & Canopy ($179)
First, I washed and ironed the bedding. I rolled out ribbon on the bed to see what shape I wanted to do. Hotel bedding is the inspiration here. I decided to go with not just your normal rectangle shape. At first I was thinking about mint, but then I went to JoAnn's and bought some coral ribbon.
                                                           
Once it was laid out, I used some fabric glue to help it stay in place and then I did a quick sew around to attach the ribbon to the bedding. I did the same shape on the pillowcases.

My cost $37

Why haven't I done this to more of our bedding? It was a simple project that added a lot of class. Have you ever done a ribbon trim before? I also realized that I didn't give out all my sources for her room so here it is:

Sources for room:
Ikea bedding
pillow (fabric)
fabric for headboard
curtains Ikea
paint: SW Naval, BM White Dove, (hutch) SW Charisma
bulletin board fabric
Vintage (or thrifted): desk and chair, hutch, chair, bench seat, lamp (spray painted), side table
art: Sisters watercolor, a lot of homemade art

  3. Tracy, I love this bedding DIY! I've always liked the look of white duvets with simple trim but sometimes it's hard to find the right trim color - this way the color possibilities are endless! Thanks for linking up to Best of the Nest!

  4. I love the crisp, tailored look. I really need new bedding in my master bedroom but it can get so pricey to redo an entire bed. This is a great inexpensive option! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Hi Tracy! This is SO beautiful. I love how you've customized the duvet. I found a great deal on a Hotel Collection duvet with grey stitched details, but am thinking of adding some ribbon over it for a more dramatic look. Beautiful!

    1. Jennifer- thanks for hosting the link party and your kind comment. Adding ribbon trim really stepped up the bedding a notch. I love the idea of adding extra ribbon trim over existing grey stitched detailing. I would love to see it if you end up doing it.

  10. LOVE this! I'm wondering is the sewing is necessary? I'm not so handy with the sewing machine. Do you think the Glue would hold it? Duvet covers aren't washed too often, right?
