A cotton coverlet is a joy to behold, and to sleep under!
Do you use one?
So many beds are now covered with a duvet which is then covered with a removable cover.
Well, we tried that route. And tried again. And found it just was NOT for us. A faux-down, or real down comforter/duvet sounds wonderful especially if you live in a cold climate. But we found that the lightweight cotton cover somehow made the wrapped duvet very heavy and cumbersome. It was worse with a faux down than with the real thing…but back in those days we had a dog (who, yes, slept on the bed!) who was allergic to down. In any case, it didn’t work.
I opted to try the “old-fashioned” way: a cotton coverlet or, dare I use the word, BED SPREAD! I grew up with these but oh my, they went out of fashion. What goes round, comes round, as they say. And now, we have quite a nice selection of all cotton coverlets and bedspreads to choose from!
Below is our current bed situation!
Classic white quilted coverlet: mine from Linens ‘n Things many years ago!
Antique bed tables (two: each from very different sources but they almost match!)
A classic table lamp
Custom made fabric headboard with nailhead trim
Pottery Barn has become a staple in the bedding selection; their coverlets are no exception. I like the quilting in this one:
I like the looks of this one, from Wayfair; again, cotton fabric with polyester filling.
All cotton, from one of the best quality retailers out there, and at a reasonable price:
What do you think? Are you still a duvet fan? Would you try one of these for the summer months? Do you like white, or go with a color?
