I’m a big fan of duvet covers instead of fancy comforters, mostly because they’re easy to keep clean – just throw the cover in the wash! It was time to replace ours, since it had been a few years and a few mendings. See the last bedroom post here.
Hotel-style bedding has always been my favorite, so I like to stick to white. However, I wanted something with a little more pizazz, so I started my search for a white duvet cover with stripes. I came across Frette and Restoration Hardware and fell in love, but I didn’t want to spend that kind of money on something so white when Mr. Bond likes to snack (messily) in bed! You can’t really use bleach on this duvet style because of the black stitching, and it weakens the fibers over time anyway.
The triple-stripe is the Pottery Barn duvet; the double-stripe is from Amazon. As you can see from the close-ups, the Amazon duvet stitching kind of “bleeds” into the surrounding fabric; some reviewers said that the stitching came apart after washing it a few times, but of course I wanted to see for myself. Since it’s not as clean of a stitch as the Pottery Barn (which you’d expect since there is a price difference), I decided to return the Amazon duvet.
For those of use who are OCD about things like this (I know I’m crazy, but it’s not gonna change, haha), the Pottery Barn duvet came closest to the Restoration Hardware option I had felt in person:
