Bed Runner Set

I have found the solution to my bedroom decor needs!
I constantly find myself always wanting to redecorate my master bedroom, but who can afford to do that.  By the time you buy or custome order a queen or king size bedding set, you've dropped $200+.  Only to change your mind a few months later when the season changes. 

My old comforter set (of course I made it =0) was reversable to allow me to have two different, but related looks year round.  One side consisted of a beautiful green fabric while the other side was a coordinating ice blue fabric.  The skirt incorporated both the blue and green so every time I turn the quilt the fabric would always match the skirt.
The quilt would be turned to the green side every spring and summer because it brought the colors of the outdoors in, and then to the ice blue side during the fall and winter for the colder weather look.
Ingenious, I know!  LOL

With my line of work, I see a lot of new fabric lines and always wish I could use some of them as new decor in my house.
I came up with th idea when we stayed at a Holiday Inn Express while waiting on our new house.  They had a beautiful folded blanket on the bottom of the bed and just a simple bed spread in a solid color.  Great Idea!
I went online and couldn't find them anywhere.  I don't even know what to call them.

So, of course, my mind said, "Dana, why not make these with the new fabrics and be able to change your bedroom without having to spend an arm and a leg."

Then I saw the BEAUTIFUL orange floral fabric below and fell in love!

Simple called, Bed Runner Set, the set includes the reversible bed runner and 2 reversible euro shams.

See photos below to see the 4 different styles that you can create by using just one Bed Runner Set.

Comes in sizes King/Queen and Full/Twin
