IT's always a great day when I meet a new client. Today I headed out to Nazareth PA to talk about putting some 'OMMPPPHHH' into a four year old home for a family of three. One of the spaces I will be working on is the master bedroom and that got us talking about bedding. 'So which should I use-a comforter or a duvet?' There is no right or wrong answer....just preference. There is a lot of thought that goes into making that decision so kick off your shoes and get on your jammies.
A comforter is a blanket filled with natural or synthetic insulative material and encased in a shell/covering. It gives a cleaner look because it isn't as bulky as a duvet. You can use your comforter all year round but may wish to add a blanket at the end of your bed if you want more warmth. If you are looking for an affordable quick bedding purchase, you can find a 'Bed In A Bag' in bedding stores everywhere. The downside is that washing it is difficult because it is bulky; may require a professional dry cleaning.
A duvet is a soft flat bag traditionally filled with down or feathers, or a combination of both, and used on a bed as a blanket. It is usually placed in a duvet cover to keep it clean (like a giant pillow case!). This combinationgives an overall fluffier look.

This look is fun and flirty. I dig it against the black. Its from Target. You can liven it up by painting Valspar 253-6 Still Tidewater on the wall behind the bed.
