I remember back to when the renovations on our house were in full swing and I was feeling a little (lot) sad that I couldn't decorate my home anymore. It was at that time that I was given some wise advice - that was to decorate anyway. It might seem like something most people would possibly think to do, but for me I was knee deep in feeling sad, overwhelmed and waiting for the rooms to be finished and was only seeing the glass half empty.
Now that the renovations are on hold (mostly), I am more grateful than ever that I have taken that advice on board and have been slowly decorating what I can in my home. One of the decorating areas that I am currently obsessed with is bed linen. Goodness, decorating my bed, buying new linen pieces sets my heart a flutter.
In the lead up to Christmas I found a bed set that I LOVED at Adairs that was designed by the talented people of Kip & Co. At the time it was way out of my price range, however in the spirit of being positive, I kept a watch (stalked) the Adairs website until it came on sale and quickly popped it on lay-by. I was able to give it to the kids to give to me for Christmas and let me tell you, that was one present I was super excited to open.
The range was called Croc and was made in some of my most favourite colours. It is no longer available through Adairs but you can see the original photos HERE. After Christmas I excited changed my bedding over to my new pieces and I broke into a smile every time I walked past my room. It made my room into my instant favourite room and I could no longer see the insulation hanging out of unfinished wall, I stopped waiting to have new windows and plasterboard installed and started to enjoy my room for what it was. I was definitely seeing the glass half full.
I do have the Euro pillows in the Croc set as well, however to change things up a little, I purchased these grey cross covers from Aura Home over the Christmas break - yay for after Christmas sales. I like having the ability to change things up just by changing a few pieces.
Speaking of changing things up, one of the (many) things I love about Kip & Co Quilt covers is that they are completely different on the reverse side. So by just flipping my doona over, I can have another look for my bed - which feeds my bed linen obsession just a little bit more too.
How different does it look, almost like a whole new quilt cover. Speaking of new quilt covers, I may just have a few more pieces on lay-by so that I can change up my bedding for winter. It really has been amazing changing my thought patterns, my attitude and my bedding too, and choosing not to wait for things to be better but to actively work on making things better for myself.
I will be sure to pop back and show you my 'new' version of this bedding when I add a few new pieces for winter too. If you love this bedding as much as I do, have a look around the Kip & Co site as I think they have a version of this croc set on sale at the moment (and no, this is not a sponsored post, I just wanted to share something that I love with you - who knows, it might bring a smile to someone else's face too).
