I think the most fun we had with this was choosing the buttons. After all the practicalities – have we enough fabric, is the color stable (yes!), does it feel relevant with our white and natural sheets (yes yes!) -
First we tried white buttons – too Minnie Mouse. Then my beloved coconut. All right in a kind of a limited way for an off night.
Finally, and without much expectation, black: and to our delight the inkiness of our just-sub-black buttons added sophistication to the richness of the blue. A marriage made in heaven.
Pair with white sheets and pillow slips for classic crispness, but I prefer the touch of worldliness natural sheets add to the mix. Urbane, comfortable, effortless.
