I know it’s been a while since I have done a Drab or Fab post, but I have to get your opinion on this one.
Generally, all you have to do is think the word “floral” to make me run screaming in the opposite direction. I’m not a floral kind of girl. Unless of course that floral shows up in a bold, modern damask or close-up photography of flowers in black and white. But red roses? On bedding? Not for me. Usually. This bedding from Gaiam is (I can’t believe I’m saying this) making me reconsider.
The roses are there, and I did have to stifle a bit of a gag the first time I saw this bedding, but the unexpected polka dot background made me take a second look. I’m not completely convinced, but it’s growing on me. On the plus side, the bedding is reversible, so you could switch to the plain polka dot side if the the roses proved too gagtastic for you to handle.
So what do you think? Is this polka dot/floral combo drab or fab? Is it a beautiful example of decor innovation or shabby chic run amuck? Leave your opinions in the comments below!
