Ralph Lauren Rosecliff Collection

Morning y'all! The other day I spent the better part of five hours obsessively searching online for pretty, chintzy floral creamygrayishbluishgreenish* standard pillow shams that aren't $1,000.  I didn't find them.

creamygrayishbluishgreenish is an actual color in my head that I can never quite nail.  The Suze and I are always on the lookout for this elusive color, somewhat akin to Restoration Hardware Silver Sage but creamier, grayer and bluer.  

I did, however, come across this pretty Ralph Lauren collection for Spring 2012.  The Rosecliff Collection is described as "the relaxed romance of a turn-of-the-century seaside manor." Oh heyy Ralph, have you been reading my diary? I'd like to meet whomever wrote the copy for that beautiful description of where I am when I'm spacing out.  Anyway, it's blue and white and pretty and therefore must be shared with y'all.

Pretty right?

I'm finding there's a major lack of pretty, chic, affordable bedding out there.  There's just not a whole lot of variety.  I'm thinking I might design my own.  In the meantime, if anybody has a lead on pretty, chintzy floral creamygrayishbluishgreenish* standard pillow shams that aren't $1,000 please please let me know.  Have a lovely day!


  1. Just saw this yesterday and as with all things Ralph does....it blew me away. So fresh, like a big gust of freshly scented spring air. Can this guy do no wrong!! Love it..... and like you I am a fan of the creamygrayishblueishgreenish club. If I happen to see something ultra fabby that isn't ridiculous will most certainly let you know!

  2. How nice of them to set up a house that's all ready for me to move right in.

    P.S. I am loving your Chintz Pinterest board. Fellow chintz enthusiast here.

  3. Hey there! I've been a long time poster but I don't think my posts were getting saved bc of the browser I was using... grrr. Anyways, I saw this the other day and can't begrudge that it is named after one of my favorite houses! Loved the bed linens, so perfect.

  4. Just beautiful, though not kid or dog friendly, haha. So fresh and pretty.

  5. Love RL and this is so inviting...I want to duplicate every detail.

  6. I am in love!! Every single image made me swoon!! I am not big on the ruffles but other than that I would say Perfection!! I am with you on finding perfect bedding that is not an arm and leg. I have been on the search also. I did find some nice white sheets by Sferra at Tuesday morning. I have the same problem with my blue, the palest blue ever is on my walls and I worked with my tinter all day to get this custom color. All the blues that I could find were too bright or too grayed, so I feel your pain. Now I am looking for some pale blue sheets and can't find them either. If I see anything i will let you know!!! If you see any pale pale blue sheets let me know. I am also looking for a pretty, long rectangular pillow with just a touch of color and maybe a slight tone on tone pattern. I hate when we designer types get pictures in our heads!! Too hard to make happen sometimes,
