Liz writes, "Outblush, I am begging for your help to find my dream bedding. The Eileen Fisher Seasonless Silk Comforter in Pewter was my dream - but the price is out of range ($498 for the comforter alone, and pewter is long gone. I'd rather spend that on the entire bed - or around $300 not counting sheets). I like white/off white, gray/charcoal/gunmetal, black/white if it isn't too distracting/busy ... cooler neutrals. I want something simple, but with an elegant detail like tufting - that still doesn't look fussy. (The dream comforter to me is effortlessly elegant.) It doesn't have to be silk, I actually want something I can care for at home. I want my queen bed to look like a bed fit for a queen, the kind a girl can't wait to flop down on after a long day. PS - I have down allergies, so if it isn't a coverlet/comforter cover/etc - avoiding true down is necessary. The dream (Third color is pewter.). Too warm but shows the bedding more (off white is fine, but a yellowy ivory that goes with brown just isn't what I want). If it matters, I do have a whole room vision happening already. It involves crystal lamp bases (well, the look), a cozy rug, a pretty vanity, soft lighting, mirror and silver and white/off white details, clean lines but cozy textures - a bit of old Hollywood, a bit of upscale hotel chic, etc. - but on a single girl moving out on her own budget. Color wise, I'm leaning in the dusky lavender and gray area. (I figure neutral bedding is best, I can trade sheets to go from lavender to pale aqua to eggplant - whatever works as the room comes together.) Thanks, Outblush! I am a faithful reader, and I know if anyone can help me track down the perfect bedding, it's your staff."
