I love a well-dressed bed, and I think it’s one of the simplest ways to make a room look dramatically better. Even so, I rarely make mine and have only bought one new set of sheets in a decade.
And I knew we had to get rid of our old down comforter, which was not only filthy (I was ignorant of duvets when we bought it), but also had a tear and was gradually covering our bedroom in small, white feathers. But I think we would have slowly been buried, Pompei-style, had Joe’s mother not bought us a new (down-alternative) comforter for Christmas.
She got me pillows for my birthday, so now it’s up to me to finish the job. I think my problem is that I just can’t get excited about duvets and shams. I can drool over kitchen gadgets, light fixtures, hardware, even breadboxes, but put me in a bedding store and I’d rather nap than shop.
Can anyone relate? What are your favorite household items to shop for—and what would you rather not?
