Bedspread Trial Win!

Not wanting to commit right away to a grey/brown bedspread, I bought a nice Calvin Klein sheet set in the color. Now that I know I love it, I'll make a duvet cover from the top sheet, better than a plain comforter because we can remove the comforter inside for California summers. What's more, Ill choose a different, complimentary color for the back of the duvet, so if I decide to change things up I can flip it! This option is only slightly more cost effective, depending on whether you have something that can be used as the inner comforter, and also depending on the quality of the sheet set. I could have bought a comforter set for less this time of year, but I like the versatility that a duvet offers, and the fact that I could get a higher quality sheet set compared to the cost of a really high quality comforter.

  1. Have you ever considered a "Mr. Badger's House" look?Mr. Badger's HouseThe floor was well-worn red brick, and on the wide hearth burnt a fire of logs, between two attractive chimney-corners tucked away in the wall, well out of any suspicion of draught. A couple of high-backed settles, facing each other on either side of the fire, gave further sitting accommodations for the sociably disposed. In the middle of the room stood a long table of plain boards placed on trestles, with benches down each side. At one end of it, where an arm-chair stood pushed back, were spread the remains of the Badger's plain but ample supper. Rows of spotless plates winked from the shelves of the dresser at the far end of the room, and from the rafters overhead hung hams, bundles of dried herbs, nets of onions, and baskets of eggs. It seemed a place where heroes could fitly feast after victory, where weary harvesters could line up in scores along the table and keep their Harvest Home with mirth and song, or where two or three friends of simple tastes could sit about as they pleased and eat and smoke and talk in comfort and contentment.–Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
