Would a Pink and White Custom Bedding Set Work?

What kind of comforter should I buy to go with a zebra rug? I am giving my teen girl's bedroom a make-over. Alli and I have agreed on a zebra rug and a bedding set in hot pink and white.

The table lamp on her bedside table has a hot pink acrylic base with a white shade and we have also purchased a tufted stool that's upholstered with hot pink and decorated with crystals.

My question is what type of fabric print on the duvet cover will work well with the zebra print area rug? Should we buy a solid white bedding set with hot pink accents?


Secondly, Alli has her mind set on white wall paint. I have recently convinced her to make one wall a focal wall using a pink paint color by Benjamin Moore called "Hot Lips". Do you think that this will work?

I would also like to keep the window treatments super simple and could use some ideas on curtains as well as suggestions as to what kind of comforter should I buy.

From the webmaster:

I can picture a bed dressed with a solid white comforter set with shams edged in hot pink cording and Alli's monogram embroidered in hot pink in the center and some throw pillows layered over the shams. Some of the pillows should have touches of zebra print but not so much that they overpower the rug especially if it's close to her bed.

I also like the idea of a hot pink accent wall but I would hold off on choosing a color until you have bought your bedding so that you can get a good color match.

You don't say what size and shape the bedroom windows are or whether or not they are on the accent wall or a wall without windows. Also, you haven't indicated whether or not you have shades or blinds in place or whether you need full length curtain panels for privacy.

Even without that information, I would recommend tailored window treatments with no ruffles or gathered fabrics. An upholstered cornice, white curtain panels with hot pink borders and tiebacks or roman shades would work.

Your bedroom decorating ideas sound fabulous and I hope that when you find your comforter and have everything in place that you will come back and show us pictures of Alli's bedroom.
