But a recent review of Ballard Design's current offerings showed me some bedding that strikes the right balance of crisp and decorative. Check out the Lexington Applique Duvet and Sham:
Love, love, love the hue of the applique. Looks to be somewhere between an aloe green and a blue-gray aqua. And I love how they've paired the duvet with the matelasse quilt. I would probably do the duvet with the euro shams and then do something else that coordinates for standard shams (or just use the sheets for the standard pillows).
What do you think? Like it?
