This is how I dreamed my white duvet would look...
It's white and fluffy, like sleeping on a cloud. It's all a lie...just kidding!
Remember my bedroom makeover from February?
It doesn't quite look like the inspiration picture. I'm sure if I stuck a second comforter inside the duvet I would probably like the look of it more, but I would die of a heat stroke. The one comforter is already hot enough and we (my husband, me and my five year old...I know, I know) end up sticking a leg out for relief in the middle of the night.
The real reason duvet covers don't work for me is because they end up a wrinkled mess with the comforter pooling at the bottom. I'm sure it has something to do with my son who does karate in his sleep. We do use the ties to hold the comforter, but they end up getting ripped out every single time. I have no idea why. I've bought better quality duvets in the past with the same result. Whatever the reason, I'm finally going to look for an alternative to duvet covers.
I'm considering a coverlet, but I just need a little more weight to my bedding than it provides. I could buy a decorative comforter, but I haven't come across any that don't have that "bed in a bag" look.
I can't be the only one that is tired of duvets, right? Anyone, anyone...Bueller? You are completely welcome to throw any ideas this way. In the meantime, I'm off to go shopping!
