do you have matchign covers to the wallpaper and/or curtains.
if so how do you manage.

in our household we have loads of covers.
i very rarely throw them away, but might donate those old barbie ones now.

No matching stuff here. Suppose it would work ok if you had two sets of each design. We have loads, i hate throwing things out too. Although they are coming in handy now for making tents with ds1 in the back garden.

I have four sets for my bed. But they are all white.

I had some old bright Ikea ones but used them to cover the plastic sheeting for my home birth.

Also have whole bunch of single ones for the DCs.

LadyPink - pretty much as you are. The duvet covers are white but bedcovers we put over over them to match room settings.

White duvet covers, sheets, pillow cases and towels means we can do mass washes without worrying about colours.

I have two sets for each bed.

The ones for ds's bunk bed don't match the room but the ones for my bed (one set white, one set blue and white stripes) matched the room I bought them for. We have now moved so they don't match anymore. In fact, nothing would match the hideous curtains I have now.

Two set although I tend to use only one and wash and put straight back on.

I only have one set for our bed, three sets shared between two children and three cot sets. All white.

I don't want any more as I know I'd end up with a backlog of washing and storage problems.

It does mean that only one child can wet the bed/ be sick at a time though.

two sets for our bed and two for the each of the DC's beds and a couple of spares.

Think I have about 5/6 for our bed and 4/5 for DD's and 3 for the spare bed.

All match the rooms décor they are intended for by tone rather than pattern.

two sets for our bed, they go with the decor, rather than match.

Four sets for our bed, two double sets for ds1's bed even though it's a single, about 6 sets of singles.

None of ours match our decor, mostly because we don't have decor as such, just nasty greyish cream walls and laminate bloody flooring.

I am very proud of the fact that ds1's bedding matches his decor, due to a whole weekend spent decorating and accessorising as a surprise for him. (Although the effort has worn me out completely. grin)

grey wall, laminate, duvet cover = decor grin

4 for our bed and 2 for ds' bed. his match his room, ours match the curtains but thats because we have nasty greyish cream walls and laminate flooring aswell. bloody landlord's restrictions!

grin nomorecake.

booyhoo- I can't even blame the landlord OR the previous owners for our 'decor' - we've lived here for three years!! blush
