I very much want to give our bedroom an overhaul, but I don't want to change the color scheme. You see, contrary to yuppie decorating techniques, I want my furnishings to match my art. The problem lies therein, for the art is primarily teal, which seems to be a color very out of vogue right now. My whole underwater-starry sky theme is what's at risk.

Specifically what I want is a comforter or comforter cover in shades of teal and blue, or teal and forest green, primarily in velvet. I would settle for a satin jacquard at this point. (Plain satin is just asking for patterns of visible puncture marks from kitty claws and teeth.) I don't want an all-over design, just something with ornamentation or borders. I can find exactly what I want in other colors, but I don't want to change the color scheme!

I've looked in every department and home furnishings store I've passed by, in every catalog with home accessories, and on eBay, and I've been looking for at least a month to no avail. eBay may turn out to be my best bet, but that's questionable at best. I may have to resort to sewing my own, but finding fabric long and wide enough to work with will be a challenge, although I'm willing to piece things as much as I need to to get the look I want.

I had no idea this would be so frustrating. Arrrgh.
