I mentioned earlier that I was still acclimating to the weather here in Berkeley. That means relegating my black turtlenecks to the back of the closet (with a heavy sigh), and shopping for layers. Same goes for our bed!
I love the notion of outfitting a bed. Duvet covers are like the classic foundation pieces in your wardrobe: the standby pair of jeans that just feels better wash after wash, the crisp khaki shirtdress that looks equally chic with flip-flops or I-mean-business heels. Comfortable, practical, ready to be accessorized.
Neutral linen seems the way to go for a Spring-weight duvet, and I'm seeing it everywhere.
And, of course, there's the Belgian Linen collection at Restoration Hardware.
Glorious and far-fetched, at $70 per pillowcase...
Luckily for me, I also spotted the trend at Ikea, where a mere $25 bought me a duvet cover, matching shams, and a new bedding staple.
It's sweet with country floral pillowcases (made by my Mom)...
And dreamy with velvet shams from Pottery Barn and the West Elm pillowcases that I couldn't resist last fall.
And Matilda approves.
I don't know about you, but I feel an afternoon nap coming on...
