Vintage Chenille Bedspreads

Nothing says summer/beach house like a retro chenille blanket. I admit some are a bit goofy and over the top but a white version paired with a stripe bedskirt like the image above feels restrained bohemian. I found a few vintage versions on etsy.com that I thought were pretty cute. The pink bedspread is hard to resist (i own a few similar) but to get the look above you really need to stick with white. Maybe the color versions could go in a kids’ room? At the way bottom I found an affordable diamond pattern bedspread at L.L.Bean. Scour ebay, etsy, or thrift stores for more.

    ha! i know I can't resist the pink. I love the way the pink looks when i spot them but not so much in the actual room. It's just that white feels so boring when you see it all alone.
