Good Question: Duvet Dilemma
Maren sent us an email: I have question about my endless search for a new duvet cover, bedspread, or blanket to act as one of those two. I am looking for somethin preferably with dark gray, light blue, white, and black – or some combo of those two. I sadly, have a twin bed due to my very small bedroom, so anything that I really like or is “luxury” only comes in Queen or King.
If I go with a duvet cover, I can do a double since my duvet is a double, but I can’t find those anyplace either. I need something that is more summery than my flannel cover I currently have. I like the Montreal style of Plush Living (pictured above, left) but of course wrong size and color.
I am pretty much game for anything at this point – quilts, cable-knit blankets, etc. I am just so tried of looking, finding something I love, and then finding it only comes in Queen or King (or the colors just aren’t right). Anyway, would love if you know of something I just haven’t come across yet. Oh yeah, and I hope to spend under $200 if possible (I mean – it is a twin!). Thanks!
For a budget friendly option we’d suggest the “Victorian” duvet cover from delia*s (pictured above right)?
It has a similar pattern to the “Montreal” set that you like, but comes in the black and white that you are looking for. A duvet cover is available in this pattern in twin or full.
It’s definitely not as luxe, the thread count is a bit lower (220) but the price is right (especially if you switch linens with the seasons): $48. for the twin, $58 for the full. Sheets, pillow cases and shams are also available from delia*s.
Readers, any other suggestions or recommendations (under $200, available in twin or double, lightweight) for Maren?
