“I’m in the market for a duvet cover and would enjoy seeing what you find,” writes a reader named Nancy, and I’m happy to oblige, because the right duvet cover can really transform your bedroom with a minimum of effort. (Also: I’m curious what other home/design posts you’d like to see here. Anything you’re in the market for? Please let me know in the comments.) I think this chevron-patterned number is really nice and subtle and quite chic too.
Here is a really good print that makes a statement but won’t overwhelm the room, which is pretty much exactly what one wants to achieve with a duvet cover.
I buy most of my bedding from Brooklinen because it’s cheap and well-made, and because my big dog likes chewing on linens so much that it’s pointless go for anything fancier. Their basic cover, which I like in grey, goes for a pretty-damn-unbeatable $95.
Broken stripes are nice and bold and a little preppy.
I like that this sort of looks like a very contemporary quilt. I also like the dog.
Another fantastic, dreamy pattern by Eskayel, who make some of my favorite prints.
I like the light-on-dark embroidered business here so much that I’m considering going for it, chewing dog be damned.
Another fine choice from Marimekko. I like that the dots are all irregular in shape—if they were straight-up polka-dots, it wouldn’t work so well.
