Still Searching

I'm once again on the hunt for a bedroom set. The one we have now is a little, let's say, mismatched, and not very grown up. Here's my problem, though, I can't find one I like. Anywhere. Sure, I've found a few that'll do, but none that scream, 'Take me home! Keep me forever!'

That said, I am enjoying the names of the sets. There are those I can't pronounce: Chateau Chambery, Chateau Frontenac, Coterie - and therefore can't own. Those that I can't spell: Lynus (like the guy on Peanuts?), Soliloque (I think they spelled that one wrong, too). Those that make me laugh: Martini Suite, Wanderlust, Ponderosa. Those that are trying too hard; Martinique, Bellissimo, Monarch Valley. And those with little doohickies over the 'e': Lumine.

What I need is one called, 'Pretty, fits in room.'

That is a sweet car bed in the picture!

I faced this same dilemma when we moved into this house. It was solved when I combined elements from two separate sets. My headboard, nightstand, settee bench and dresser mirror are from the same set, and my dressers and armoire are from another set. I think this works because I mixed two different elements, metal and wood. I don't think two different types of wood would look right. But my point is, consider the idea of combining different sets.

Good luck!

I AM WITH "B", I THINK THE RACE CAR BED LOOKS VERY NICE. DOES IT COME IN DIFFERENT COLORS? I'M NOT SURE IF RED IS REALLY YOU :)
