Duvet Decisions

I love decorating, I just hate making the final decisions. :) Can you tell?

Well, for the past several years now I have been living with duvet covers in the yellow color family. (Two different duvets, two different yellows.) Just recently, I bought the orange and white Andrea Kakel duvet from Ikea because I was convinced I would love it. Turns out I don't and apparently you get what you pay for ($20 = not the softest duvet in the world).
So I've decided to change it up a bit and have been on the hunt for a lovely peacock blue duvet set, since that seems to be my color of choice these days. I want something age appropriate (I'm over 25), romantic and yet fun. Can you get romantic and fun in the same duvet? :)

Anyway, I've searched and searched and searched and finally settled on Overstock.com for it's various selection and it's budget-friendly price. So here are a few selections. Some are more soft green than blue, so I might have to compromise there. Tell me what you think!


This one (above) is nice looking I think, but it doesn't provide the thread count, so that worries me. But it is 100% cotton.


This one (above) is obviously plain, but I could dress it up with pillows. It's 100% cotton sateen, 315 thread count. I don't know anything about sateen and I've heard thread count should be above 400. What do you say?

This one (above) would obviously have to come in the pale green because that blue looks too pale. It's 100% cotton sateen solid 600 thread count. That sounds better than 315tc, right?

Another thought I just had was that I could buy a plain white set and dye it in a peacock blue color. The only problem with that though is you never really know what color you're going to get. But that's a way I could go.

While at Target yesterday I saw a lot of cute decorative pillows that I could use to dress up which ever duvet I decided to get.

So which is your favorite?

I really like the blue one (the first one). Very cute and age appropriate. :) Ruk

So I'm moving soon, and need serious decorating ideas/websites/stores that don't entail painting, knocking out walls, etc. Got any suggestions for me, Ms. Designer? :)

LC said...

Oh that's awesome! I love 3 Crow. I'm not terribly familiar with everything else though. I'm super excited to move over there, though. I haven't been to Red Door either. Maybe we'll meet up at 3 Crow one night! :)

I miss having a Target. :( Tell me when you get the new one and how you like it!

So I've been trying to find that orange duvet cover EVERYWHERE to go in my guest bedroom. When did you get it at Ikea? I don't think they carry it anymore :(

bethany said...

This is a long shot, but do you still have that duvet cover from IKEA and if so, do you want to sell it to me? We could do it through Paypal if you would like-I need it!! :)

My friend and I were recently discussing about how involved with technology our daily lives have become. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes cheaper, the possibility of downloading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about almost every day.
