Linen Duvet

I’ve been wanting to buy/make a linen duvet for quite awhile now. I’m sure I’ve told you how much I love linen. I’m kind of obsessed with it. Not as much as I used to be (see photos of me living in Santa Cruz draped in linen everything), but still I like to have it in my life wherever possible.

I’ve been saving that top left picture since the Summer of 2008 thinking that I would make a throw like that, but I never got it together. I have since thought better of it because Josh and I like our super light down comforter in the summer and I have since become enamored with the striped blanket seen above. Plus Morgan has been torturing me with her beautiful duvet and kilim pillows.

Now the plan consists of me purchasing the striped tapestry from Urban Outfitters and sewing a light linen on the backside to create my own cost effective fabulous linen/striped duvet cover.

What do you think?

    Good for you, making things yourself! I'm envious.

    yes! linen on the bed is a great idea. I've purchased a bunch of tapestries from UO, and use 'em for lots of stuff. Very useful, though I like your specific idea.

    I usually use them for beach blankets. I had one that I had no idea Josh was in love with that I ruined. He will never forgive me for it;) I guess he was in love with the colors and the pattern.
