Living in a small apartment means making the most use of the space that you have.
But I also prefer that one room flows well to the next. Even though there are only a few rooms to work with.
I have decorated in somewhat of a boho/cottage/farmhouse mixture of styles. But my red and white kitchen is more cottage style.
Does the pattern of the quilt on my bed as well as the shams in the back look familiar? Well, they should.
It’s also the same colors and the same pattern in the quilted throw I have over the back of my couch.
I loved the pattern so much that I purchased the full-size quilt and shams.
Below is the photo you’ll find on Amazon.com for the bed quilt and pillow shams.
Another nice thing about the throw and quilt is that the front has a different backing. You could use either side if you wanted to. Or fold one over the other on your bed in layers.
For winter I have a heavier natural beige quilt. When it gets cooler I will then fold this quilt at the bottom half of the bed.
I thought it would be fun to use the same patterns, linking the two rooms. Creating a natural “flow” from one end of my home to the other.
Using the same pattern with the throw and the quilt creates a natural “flow” in my apartment.
This draws the eye from one room to the other, and to me feels cohesive. Calming. Even with all the colors.
Linking the front of my apartment to the back brings the space as a whole together. And I find this continuity both pleasing and peaceful.
