More Lavender Sheets Decorating Advice
Wall paint is not the only place that you can add color to match the lavender sheets. Since lavender is a flower consider adding these flowers, whether real or fake to a nightstand.
Another place to match colors is with window treatments in the room. Curtains that match would be whites, oranges, and yellows. If you wanted to even go a step further try matching the material of the sheets to the window curtain material. This will really tie in a room's decor.
Lavender sheets and curtains can be found in many materials. The most popular fabrics for them to be made from are cotton, silk, and satin.
You may notice something called thread count when shopping for sheets, as general rule of thumb the higher the thread count the softer the sheets will feel to the touch. For window curtains the heavier the fabric the less light they will allow into the room.
Lavender sheets can be purchased online on Amazon.com and also at eBay.
