Design Directions: Top of Bed - Mod Living

Kara Cox -- Home Accents Today, March 1, 2006

Contemporary bedding ensembles take a mod spin with graphic pop art grabbing attention on solid fields or repeating geometrics playing up tile patterns for a funky visual aesthetic. Color remains neutral with bursts of energy coming from sky blue and brown combinations or buttery yellow accents. Nature themes take hold with flowering line patterns and whimsical bird images.

All prices are suggested retail
