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.
