Bedding colours help

I need new bedding but I'm struggling with what colours/patterns would "go"
Is a super king divan bed with a white leather effect headboard. The walls are mainly white (one wall has dark grey glitter wallpaper), white blinds, light cream carpet with white bedside tables and a drawer unit.
Current bedding is all plain in colour (black or grey) poly cotton and I just fancy something a wee bit different.

I think almost anything would go! My first reaction would be something with yellow/green/grey in - either something retro in style or traditional florals.

Well whatever you decide make sure it's pure cotton - you'll never go back!

I like the idea of yellow and retro, DH dismissed florals straight away.
I do love pure cotton, and always have 100%cotton fitted sheet and pillow case. I tend not to have it for the duvet cover as it squashes so much and looks like a rag after the first night
This really shouldn't be as hard as it is!

I have a couple of grey ones
One is grey tonal stripes. One is plain grey but the bottom bit is embellished. The other is grey and white floral but big floral pattern if that makes sense?

Well, we settled on a white one with grey stripes...it's nice, just a bit plain and not what I wanted (colour and a busier pattern)
DH is a bit boring though so at least we've got a nice(ish) summer duvet cover!

Habitat yellow and grey like the pattern and the colours would work.

bikerunski that duvet cover is gorgeous! I have been looking for a nice yellow duvet cover for our bedroom for ages, but nowhere seems to do anything that I like. Or its too floral. I might just have to buy it

I agree, most colours would go, what about a nice aubergine or burgundy. Dunelm I think are great, such a great choice and range, reasonable prices too. They do the Egyptian cotton and the likes.

What about a nice birdie one

Next have some lovely ones at the moment - lots with grey, with patterns that aren't necessarily flowers (geometric etc) and lots in colours with touches of grey with yellow or pink etc.
Really anything would go with that scheme depending on what look you want. Bright and jazzy to subdued and classic.

bikerunski done and done [grin) Of course I had to add a couple of extra things in my basket to get the free postage

Excellent littkemiss. Stealthy free postage by virtue of buying extra stuff is always a good plan.
