Since we have so many fabrics and colors to choose from, it is easy to get overwhelmed with so many color choices! Besides matching your decor, there are other things to think about when choosing your colors.
A real “biggie” is laundering your comforter. How you plan to launder your hugger can help determine which colors you should pick. For the same reason you would avoid washing a red shirt in a load full of whites, you will want to avoid choosing white on one side and solid colors like solid red, navy and dark turquoise on the other, as these colors have a higher risk of bleeding. *With that said, if you choose a print that reverses to another print (the prints won’t bleed, only the darker or brighter SOLID fabrics can bleed if not washed properly) or you are planning to dry clean your comforter, you don’t have to worry about color choices.
My Suggestion: If you choose a light color as your main fabric, such as white with turquoise print or white with light pink print, I recommend using lighter colors, such as sage, tan, light blue, light pink, or even white for your reverse color. If you choose a darker color for the front, such as a navy with white anchors, I recommend using a solid navy for the reverse. Again, if you choose a print for both sides of the comforter, you don’t need to worry about it. Pick any colors you like.
Still Gotta Have that bright or dark solid reverse color? Here’s a Tip: There is a product called a color blocker sheets, such as Shout Color Catchers or Carbona Color Grabbers and these “catch” the colors during the wash cycle.
When laundered carefully and correctly, your hugger will hold up and stay nice for a long time!
