Bedskirts series: Watching the Purple Moon rise

Saffron Marigold - Updated: July 3, 2014

The Purple Moon set of fabrics are richly patterned  in purple and creamy peach. As with most Saffron Marigold fabrics, I find it easy to let everything else play second fiddle to their vibrant designs. If you already own one of these beauties, you will know what I am taking about! The bright colors and intricate hand-blocked patterns instantly create a boho chic atmosphere and if its the bedroom, you never want to get out of bed!

All Saffron Marigold duvet covers come with a coordinated print on the reverse side so that you can completely change the look with a flick of your wrist!

The colors that instantly strike me as good choices for bedskirts that match the Purple Moon are white, cream, beige, taupe…something neutral, that won’t distract from the beauty of the print. You can choose between shabby chic linen bedskirts, the embroidered femininity of lace, or the tailored look of twill. Here are some suggestions for bedskirts that complement the Purple Moon and let it shine..

1. Linen bedskirts in neutral colors: Linen bedskirts bring shabby chic style to the bedroom and the look is soft and romantic. They will work perfectly with the Purple Moon to create a truly relaxing atmosphere. Vintage-washed Belgian linen bedskirts from Restoration Hardware are a great choice. They are available in 4 neutral colors and all of them can work perfectly with the Purple Moon- its up to you to decide the look you want.

2. Linen bedskirt in white: Pairing the Purple Moon with white, will  not only anchor the print, but blend the exotic with the softness of white. The tailored look of this one from Garnet Hill works beautifully.

3. Pleated bedskirts: If you want a bit of color instead of sticking to neutrals, and for some added interest, you may want to pair the Purple Moon with a pleated champagne colored linen bed skirt . This one from Pottery Barn coordinates well with either side of the Purple Moon duvet.
