{ dreamy duvets }

I can't tell you how hard it was to not name this post "bedding porn."
Anyhow.
Lately I've been seeing duvet covers on the backs of my eyelids. I was at a friend's house and upon entering her bedroom, my first thought was, "Oh that's the West Elm Parachute Duvet in Feather Gray!" Kind of creepy? Very much so.
Having just recently moved into a new (to me),
lovely apartment, I wanted to update my bedding a bit for a more sophisticated and luxurious dreamland escape. When I began my 'hunt for the perfect duvet cover,' my favorite one of all was, of course, the most expensive...by far. So I did an immense amount of research to find a less pricey alternative...which ended up not existing. Actually, that's an unfair statement—Target put forth a decent attempt, but it was still $80 for a Queen.

I ended up with the Organic Cotton Pin-Tuck Duvet Cover in Light Amethyst from West Elm. And then I somehow won the original one I had been lusting over from Anthropolgie on Ebay. On the same day as my West Elm purchase. I should point out that I never win anything on Ebay usually. So here I now sit/sleep with not only one, but two over-priced duvet covers. I'll be posting the Anthro Cirrus one right back on Ebay soon, so be on the lookout.

Not the most efficient shopping experience ever, but be that as it may, here is a compilation of my findings. I hope someone benefits from my scavenger hunt. Oh to be buried up to my neck in a pile of down comforters right now...

From $$$ to $ in Queen size...

Anthropologie Crowned Crane Duvet ~ $298



Anthropologie Bow-Tied Duvet ~ $248



Pottery Barn Ruched Voile Duvet ~ $199



Anthropologie Cirrus Duvet ~ $198



West Elm Organic Cotton Pin-Tuck Duvet ~ $99



West Elm Parachute Duvet ~ $99
[Target] Simply Shabby Chic Smocked Duvet ~ $80

Thank you for posting this! I have been searching everywhere for this type of pleated "kissing" (I guess they call it) down comforter and you have given me several options that I couldn't find elsewhere!!

I love that bow tie duvet from anthro. I looked on their website but didn't see up there. Do you know if it is still available or if I can get it anywhere else?

It's expensive...but I think eBay would be your only bet for this exact duvet right now! It's so luxurious!
