Does Anyone Else Use 2 Different Comforters on the Same Bed?

Good Questions

Q: While perusing the IKEA 2015 catalog, this picture caught my eye. I use my winter comforter all year round to the amusement & consternation of my boyfriend who prefers the thin-comforter-no-top-sheet. Since we moved in together, we've struggled t0 balance me being too cold and him being too hot.

We have since taken to each using our own covers (my giant duvet and his thin comforter). I found this to be a semi-effective though extremely strange solution — until I saw this picture! Are any AT readers out there actually using this 2-comforter scenario as well? And if so, how should one properly make the bed?
