Patriotic Bedding Sets - Celebrate July 4th Even When You Go to Sleep

Find This American Bedding Set Here
"When we re-decorate our bedrooms, we normally approach it as a one-time style change until we're ready to tackle it again - Who says we have to do it that way?"

Have you ever gotten the itch to make a bedroom decor change for a special occasion like Christmas, or even July 4th but didn't think a temporary change was worth it or could be done?

It's actually easier than you think when you choose bedding duvet sets.

Why Bedding Duvet Sets?

Of course, yes, you can use a comforter set, but a Duvet Set allows you to put the duvet cover over your existing comforter. That way, when the special occasion is over, you simply remove it along with any other pieces you put out such as sheets and pillow cases.

The problem that prevents us from making these quick changes is matching it to our existing decor. The paint, wallpaper, and furniture may not match another bedding set. True enough. Sometimes it won't. However, sometimes it will, or you can make it work by strictly using accessory pieces:
If your walls are busied-up with a lot of pattern and color, then to add a full seasonal or special occasion duvet set may be difficult. 
Idea: Just because you can't feature an entire set, doesn't mean you can't feature something patriotic, like a pillow, throw blanket, or bed sheets.
When you do decide to fully re-decorate a space, selecting a fairly neutral base decor, makes temporary seasonal changes easier.

Pick a couple of your favorite holidays or special occasions and find sets that are easily interchangeable with your room's base decor and go ahead and switch out your bedding for that much needed decorating pick-me-up. When you're ready, just remove the duvet set, and it's back to the way it was.

Have funk'n fun!

  3. I've never thought of going seasonal in my bedroom. I'll have to mull it over.

    1. Barbara I find it saves me from being tempted by a full on renovation or turning something into a big project that could have satisfied me with a small change like this

    1. Heather, way to go, that's a terrific way to keep things fresh and interesting - not too many people do this - I've done it in the past as well

  5. What a beautiful duvet! I love the idea of decorating in red, white & blue for the 4th of July. The stars & stripes are always beautiful. Of course, you are correct. They don't always "match" the permanent wall color or curtains, but I love your suggestion of using only the pillow cases or sheets which would be covered when the bed is made. We would still get to enjoy the festive colors and decor, just a bit more privately.

  6. Love this idea! I have a spare room to decorate and have been thinking about the best way to do it. I actually was considering a patriotic room, but I like your idea of changing decor for the seasons even better. Something neutral with seasonal pillows, even, would be a great idea. Thanks for the inspiration, Barbara!
