And yes, that is a complete ode to one of my favorite clips of all time:
Since we are being featured in a little online mini series for True Value
as we tackle our basement renovation, I’ve mostly been keeping our work down there on the down low until the videos are published (you can see those here
)–but I’d thought I would give you a little insight at what we have been pouring so much time into, especially since we really could use a little advice right now. Read on, friends.
We have spent many late nights getting rid of all that black splattered paint and when it came time to roll on the new color–we were not thrilled with our choice. In fact, we didn’t even finish painting because we both were gagging at the wall color–not really. But neither of us cared for the color (think dirty diaper). You will see all of those details in our next video that goes live this Friday. Point is–while we are not back to square one, we are back to square…two? We need to choose a new paint color. My mother (the smart cookie) suggested choosing bedding we love (Since the room will be our guest room/office) and then pulling paint colors from there. Duh! Mom! Thank you! Because we are on a major time crunch–these True Value peeps have us on a strict schedule–we have no time to dally around. So, I put together my top 10 duvet covers I have been eyeing in about 45 minutes and emailed them off to Chris to narrow it down. He divided them into 3 categories: “Yes” “No” and “Meh.” Surprisingly, there were 5 in the “Yes” column–which I am patting myself on the back for. While in our room, we love all white bedding for now, we want the guest room to have a pop of color in the duvet. We want our guests to feel like our house is comfortable and fun, while still providing a level of sophistication. Here are the covers that we think fit that vibe:
Polls are now open. Feel free to weigh in. In fact I made this handy little poll to keep everything tabulated… but we’d also love to hear more about the why (or why not) in the comment section.
Which Duvet is Best? Psst- In case you are in the market for a new duvet, or maybe you are just curious–here’s the other five that make up the bottom half of our top ten. I think they are rad. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
