Target has great bedding - I bought some 100 % linen duvet set from Shabby Chic there, so great.

The more I look at those mirrored dressers and nightstands, the more I want one. They're all so gorgeous - look at this one from ebay, Swimpy

@sozobe,
I've been leaning toward white, actually. Maybe white as a background with some graphic print. I didn't find anything at the Target store i went to today. I'll keep looking.

Not sure about the yellow...

(It's from Target's website.)

@Tai Chi,
Ha! It says right on the box 5 minute installation! I think it might have taken two hours.

@sozobe,
Maybe a bit. I can't figure out how to post pics from their website, but there are a couple of sets that I like. One has big blue flowers outlined in either black or brown. I also like the white one with the big butterflies.

West Elm has one that I like a lot.

Hesitant about the yellow, though.

Gray is also an interesting color.

@Swimpy,
OK, I got a comforter at Target. I'll post pictures as soon as Juan gets off the big computer. It's the one that has large flowers down the middle of a white background. The flowers are blue, taupe and dark brown. Me likey!

I also got a dark brown bedskirt.

Oh I love the grey one, so pretty! Mixed with white sheets it should be even
more of a standout.

Thanks. I really like it.

Just found a mirrored nightstand at Pier One for $229!

Can I get some opinions on whether this style will work with what I already have in the room? I'm just going to get one. The other bedside table will probably be dark brown.

@Swimpy,
Yeah, I like that a lot better than the first one. It will work wonderfully
with your leather bed and the rest of your things....and when the sun shines
into the room, you'll get a beautiful spectrum of colors off the mirrored nightstand.

@CalamityJane,
I looked at it in the store tonight. It's painted silver and just has mirrors on the top and sides not on the legs. It is part of a set that is on sale, but guess which piece isn't on sale. Kind of makes me mad. There is a $10 coupon in their catalog and you get a $20 gift certificate. I guess I'm feeling kind of cheap tonight.

Dresser arrived today.

Sorry about the crappy iPod pics.

I think I'm going to get the mirrored Pier One nightstand. They also have a lamp that I like. http://media.pier1.com/img/pier1com/productimages/2509694.jpg

Nice dresser, Swimpy, and I like the color splash in the lamp. Some turquoise
pieces like the lamp or vase would look great.
