This post was created from a real life moment. We were getting our room ready to shoot an update last week and I asked Andi, our Visual Media Producer, to give me a hand putting the duvet cover on. To which she said, “Tell me I don’t have to crawl inside. I ALWAYS crawl inside of mine.” We both started laughing hysterically because the image was too relatable. But no, no crawling inside for my method. I’ve also seen a few tutorials on how to put a duvet cover on and they all involved rolling it and I just never…grasped that. So no rolling here, either.
And the best part, it actually takes under 2 minutes, but we gave you an extra minute in the title in case you’re doing this by yourself–which you can totally do.
We made a short play-by-play (uncut!) video to show you in real time just how easy it is, but in case you want the play by play in text–read on.
If you need more of a visual, I hope you’ll watch the short video above! It’s so easy that Andi made us take OFF the duvet so she could record a video of it on the spot. Haha.
And since you’re no longer frustrated by duvets (right?!) as a bonus, we rounded up a bunch of our favorite covers and inserts below! We currently #6 (king size–gray!) and the number 1 insert. But I’m seriously crushing on ALL of these.

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
