In the bedroom

I knew there was a reason Brent and I never used down comforters.

We’ve always used duvets with a back up comforter underneath. With 2 dogs, this was the most practical option for us, considering at any given moment our duvet was in the washing machine.

I’m now especially glad we had this system, because the Crate & Barrel duvet has kicked the bucket. Several months ago, part of it ripped, but we sucked it up. But after we acquired a giant stain smack dab in the middle of the bed, we knew it was time.

And so, comforter underneath makes it grand entrance.

Brent has never been a huge fan of this comforter, so something tells me it’s only a matter of time before we get another duvet to cover it up. When that time comes, I hope it’s this one.

I may or may not have already started an eBay watch party for it.

And with this change, I'm already planning some color changes, etc., for in here. It's a good thing I have a birthday coming up. :)


  1. I love westie silohouettes! Do you have a post about how you made (I assume) them or where you purchased them??

  2. I made them. Here you go:

  3. Where did you find your wedding signature frame? I am searching everywhere for a decent sized one!

  4. Lauren – I actually found it at Pottery Barn. They don't sell my exact one anymore (mine actually came with a pen), but they do have these:

    Hope that helps!

  5. I really like your comforter. We don't use the duvet-down comforter. We have just a comforter.

  6. Awww, I like the damask comforter, but I would- this is mine, ha!

    I do wonder if black and white damask is on its way out.

  7. Katie – Ha! Very nice. I think damask will still be popular, but you just won't see it in every single store.

  8. I like the comforter, but I am always falling in love with new bedding, so I understand the hankering for a different duvet! Thus why I am going to paint our bedroom a neutral color so I can change the bedding out on a whim ;)
