Otomi Indecision

How was your weekend, lovebugs? We celebrated our anniversary all weekend...any excuse to eat dessert with every meal, right?! Friday night we had a family date night, so the kids could be a part of the milestone. I think it's so important for them to know we take our marriage seriously, and creating a good relationship is something we're always working towards. We're not only raising them to be good people, but good spouses...cause lawdy it's not always easy being married!

But enough of all that...remember I showed you guys the amazing new Otomi Duvet and Shams from Urban Outfitters in this Friday Five? I have a thing for otomi...a serious thing. So I instantly started searching for the perfect place to use it in our house, when my daughter saw it and begged me to put it in her room. She has a thing for horses...a serious thing. And to her, otomi looks like horses.

Her bedding was all that remained of her previous Paris decor, and I had no intention of replacing it any time soon. But I had to agree the colors of the otomi shams were perfect for her room, so I caved and ordered it. Problem is, decisiveness isn't our strong-suit, and we couldn't settle on which color duvet we liked best...pink or gray. So I thought I'd open it up to your opinion....her room is a little messy, and the duvet is just folded on her bed...but you'll get the idea.

The shams look amazing, right? And here's a close-up of the duvet pattern...

I've never considered otomi a juvenile pattern, but the colors and animal shapes make it a great fit for a kid's room. One more, side by side...

Hi Sugarplum | Otomi Bedding

You guys always come through with great opinions and advice...so what say you?

A. Pink, baby, pink
B. Gray all the way
C. Girl you crazy, that print is whack (in which case, we can't be friends #ikid)
D. I love the duvet, just not in this room. Stick with the shams only.

Pssst....everything in her room is a DIY project, and you can find them all, including the full makeover, in this post. Except the 'Girl on Fire' print, which I made here. And you can shop the Otomi bedding for yourself here.

  2. I'd probably go with "D" but if you're really sold I'm thinking pink is the better option.

  3. PINK it's awesome. As far as "messy" I see floor space which is more than you see with most kids!

  4. LOVE those shams! I've been trying to pull the trigger on them. I say pink it pops more!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I think option D - keep the shams, ditch the duvet. If you're sold on keeping it, go with the pink.

    ReplyDelete
  6. D. I like the shams but not the duvet in this room.Get a bright solid duvet for the bed!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have to say D. I LOVE the shams, but not paired with the bedding. I agree that either a bright solid bedding or maybe even striped would look awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love it!!!!!!! PINK PINK PINK! All the way PINK!
    p.s. Sour Cream.....Sour Cream.....SOUR CREAM!!!!!!!!

  9. I like the grey better...but honestly, I'm going with D. It's a whole LOT of pattern and busyness in one room. If you still want pattern, maybe a smaller patterned duvet so it doesn't detract from the other great pieces in her room (the stool, framed pic, valance, shams, etc.).

    ReplyDelete
  10. D...but pink if she is insistent. The shams are fab though.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'd go with D but if she really wants that duvet then the pink. I love mixing prints but the print on the duvet seems too big to me.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'd go with D. I think it's a little overkill with all that Otomi, although I love the pattern, it's a little busy. I think I'd keep the shams and go with a smaller patterned bedding or solid. If you do go with the bedding you have though, I say pink!

    ReplyDelete
  13. You know, while I love the pink, I think the grey makes the bed color POP! The pink duvet just makes the whole bed one color, but the grey really showcases the duvet print and the bright color of the bed. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. D. I agree with everyone else about it being too much print!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Grey - she'll get a lot more wear out of it (and it kind of "downplays" the pattern).

    ReplyDelete
  16. That is a great print. I've never seen it before! I originally thought I was between A and D. I like the pink, it's warm and I think it looks nice for a kids room, but also it may be a little loud. Looking back at the pictures I think the grey is a great fit! It isn't as busy but you still get that great print coming through.

    ReplyDelete
  17. You're asking the wrong person..I can never make up my mind. I think it looks great either way but a solid duvet would be great too-to really make the shams pop! #nohelp

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like the pink!! I think by adding a fun sheet & once the duvet is actually in it will be amazeballs.0

    ReplyDelete
  19. D for sure. The shams are awesome, though!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I really like the pink duvet in her room and don't mind the print since the rest of the room appears solid.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Pink, my friend, pink! Such fun shams for S.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's a D decision! At some point soon, your daughter is going to be so OVER pink everywhere I'm afraid.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh this is so hard. I like them both! I actually think I like the gray slightly better because it ties in the lamp shade and compliments the red bed. But they both look good! And as for all the pattern comments...I mean, it's a little girls room! What better time to play with lots of pattern, than now?? I say go for it! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I say D. Grey if she loves it and insists on keeping it (you may be more likely to use it in another room in few years if she decides she is done with it). Grey does not compete with the bed, curtains, and cornice.

    ReplyDelete
  25. PINK PINK PINK!!! Love it for a girls room!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I thought the gray duvet made her lampshade and other black accessories really pop! So, I'm going with "B".

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd say shams only! But if she loves the duvet, I would go with grey, it will 'grow' with her better than the pink and you can always pair the grey with other colors if she grows out of liking pink!

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm voting for pink (and that's coming from a girl who loves her neutrals). Love this bedding - your daughter has great taste!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The shams are amazing, I love them. I'd go with the pink duvet (but I like both the pink and the grey, you can't go wrong :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love the grey with the bed. And I like all the patterns together.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Pink! Gray is too blah for such a fun room!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think the grey is gorgeous. Answer B!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pink! The gray gets lost with the wall color. And, if you want to tone it down and make it richer in the fall/winter months, a darker quilt underneath would look fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love the pink AND the grey! It's such a difficult choice, but if I had to make it, I would go with pink. It just looks more girly, but the grey really does make the shams pop. I don't think you can go wrong either way. Love it all!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I can't believe I'm about to say this, but....PINK!!! Even though the gray is the perfect color and the pattern is delicious in gray and white. The Pink just shines! And it's perfect for a not so little girl!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am in the minority, but I say D -shams only with white bedding. Don't get me wrong. I love otomi patterns. We lived in Mexico for 5 years and have otomi pie ces in our home. In your dsughters room, I think that there is so much color and pattern/shapes and either color would take it over the top. The pillow covers are charming and traditionally made from what I can see. Just my opinion and I am sure your daughter will love whatever my decide.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love the pink! And I like the combo of the patterns for a kids room.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like the gray the best out of the two, but am not so sure I wouldn't go for maybe a graphic or trellis print on the duvet, and let the shams be the stars!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the both - pink is so girly and grey is more classy :)

  40. GRAY all the way!! Makes the other colors really POP :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Gray! The dark grounds the room a little bit more, plus she could get more use out of it as she gets older.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Option D, or gray if you have to choose. I love love love the shams, but think you can showcase them better if they aren't competing with the duvet.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Gray for sure! It's will continue to fit in the room as she gets older!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I would go with grey because of the color of the bed.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I like the grey, but...what does your daughter like? Sometimes I find if I can't make a decision it's not the right thing in the first place. 'Cause when you find something that is IT...you just know, you know :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Grey :) The pink is too much - it makes me think of the room as messy, and the print as chaotic.

    ReplyDelete
  47. B! Gray makes the other colors stand out. :)
