Opinions please!

So back in May, we bought new bedroom furniture. Since then I have been trying to find a new duvet cover that made Gabe and I both happy. He wants white and I want girly. So I think I found one from West Elm that we both like. But I want ya'll opinion on it.


We have black bedroom furniture so I love the idea of white against it. I also want to be able to change out accent colors easily. Right now I'm loving black, white, and yellow. I also love black, white, grey, and blue.
Anyway, we had a busy weekend! A girl that I cheered with at UCA got married yesterday in Heber (where Gabe is from). So we spent the day visiting at his parents before the wedding that night. Today, I cleaned, ran some errands, and caught up on homework. Three more weeks of summer school!! And then I get my week and a half of summer break before the fall semester starts back up. Speaking of fall, I just want to mention again how I can't wait for it to be here. I'm looking forward to Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes, wearing jeans again, less humidity, football season, Halloween, and starting my final semester of college! What are ya'll looking forward to most about fall?
Hope ya'll had a good weekend!!

I like the duvet you're interested in! It has the white color but the texture really adds to it. I think it would look great with the black furniture.

Fall is my favorite season! I love being able to wear a sweatshirt and jeans when it starts to get cool out.

hi! new to your blog, but wanted to let you in on the duvet cover. And no matter what anyone else comments on, unless they own it they don't know right?
I own the same one in white. I've had it for a while now. Since January. For the price, I don't think it's worth it. Those beautiful little sections of gathered material aren't so great. I say this because every night when my boyfriend and I sleep and we pull the covers up we usually hear a little "RIP" sound. This happened even when I slept alone. I have been told that there is a similar comforter at Target...well That's all I'll write for now...I posted a picture on my blog earlier this week if you wanted to check it out to see it in real life...( I was blogging about my bedroom and took a pic of the bed)

I hope I'm not a debbie downer I just didn't want you to spend the money on it since it tears easy!

It's adorable. I love the idea of black and white and changing out the accent colors. Can't wait to see what you choose.

I think it's beautiful, but you definitely want it to last. I could never do white, though! I just know I would get it dirty.

And I can't wait for pumpkin spice lattes and football!

I think that duvet is perfect! You're right, it is a good happy-medium between girly and masculine. I couldn't agree more about being ready for fall...oh I can practically taste the pumpkin spice lattes as we speak : )

Have a great day, girl!!

Love it!! It is such a smart buy because it can give an urban, cottage, or beach vibe! Plus it definitly makes your bedroom feel like a retreat!! Can I also say that I have an organic mattress and it is definitly the way to go (not necessarily the mattress but definitly organic bed accessories) my sleep has drastically improved! keep me updated!
