Today's Find

I have coveted the duvet covers at West Elm for a long, long time. They always have new contemporary designs. They seem very popular. Here's my favorite:

Something is so fresh about the white pin tucked cover. I was just about ready to commit and had the order form up on my screen, but then I added it up: the prices at the time were $119 for the cover, $25 per sham, plus a whole of shipping and handling. (That cover has since gone on sale to $99).  THEN, I'd have to buy the inside part of the duvet. Cue horn: Wa- wah.

Then I did what I always do, I researched it. Obsessively. 'Cause that's how I roll. I found this beauty at Target:
For $85 I got the cover (that did not need an inside filler), and two shams. Sold. I like that it is cotton and not some rayon-polyester mix that will show picks and pulls every time the cat gets near it. And it doesn't feel as heavy as my former cover. 

If you give the mouse a crumb soon he'll want a cookie. Stay tuned to see how I started with this cover and designed a whole new bedroom around it.

Do you ever get to the point where you want to scrap everything that's in a room and start all over? If you had it to do over would you pick a different color scheme for your rooms or house? Leave a comment and let me know!


  1. I'm in he middle of "doing it my way" and you're helping!

  2. It will be an amazing transformation. Already is in fact.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I always love feedback on what my readers (like you) are thinking.
