Hello, Gorgeous!

Nicole‘s post about choosing new bedding reminded me that Marimekko textiles are indeed available in the States via Crate & Barrel. (Goodness gracious, how could I forget!)

I like the Madison and the Lehtimaja patterns.

Then there’s Saarni:

The blues here are more to my liking than the Madison blue. This set looks really beautiful.

As pretty as the Marimekko textiles are, I don’t feel comfortable justifying the expense. At least not yet. Perhaps when the economy picks up again. After a bit of searching, I found surprisingly many appealing, more affordable nature prints.

Bed linen in bright blue, with leaves in white

Blue, yum... Although a bit too bright. Botanica. Target.

Avery. JC Penney.

Bed linen with tree branches and birds in reds and oranges

Perch is quite fun, too. DwellStudio / Target.

Of course, there’s also Liberty of London for Target. Just about every blogger and their cousin talk about these!

Bed linen with a rich flower print in red tones

Garla. Liberty of London for Target / Target.

I think I’d rather see Garla on a daybed rather than our bed. I wonder whether it’s available as fabric… A small amount would fit my office quite nicely.

Which yummy print would you pick?
