Other retailers that offer preselected, packaged bedding such as Laura Ashley sell fabrics by the yard, so you have many options, especially if you’re a do-it-yourselfer and can do basic sewing. Look for inexpensive lamps and lamp shades in colors to match your bedding. Then, using the same color, paint a border all around the outside edge of the floor. You might find an inexpensive area carpet to complete the picture.

If your taste runs more toward the all-white Victorian look that might include a canopy bed, look for a pretty white matelasse quilted cover, white ruffled sheets, and lace-edged curtains available from the Country Curtains catalog.
Thrift shops are a good source of lace nightgowns and doilies that can be cut up and made into pillowcases. They are also good for making a skirt to go around an old kidney-shaped dressing table (these vintage items are back in style) and another for a lace-edged skirt on the dressing-table stool.
There is nothing more lovely than using shades of white to create decorative effects on the walls, with the molding painted in a contrasting shade of cream. For pure luxury and elegance, drape a soft wool throw across the foot of the bed.
