The Best Duvet Covers

I’m currently working on a fun, budget-friendly bedroom refresh (I’ll have more about that in an upcoming post). Because we’re planning on staying in this apartment for a while, I’m trying to make the space feel “finished” – it makes a big difference in making our apartment feel like home. We don’t have a huge home décor budget right now, so I try to change things that can be done without spending a lot of money. Swapping out your bedding is a really easy and budget-friendly way to update your bedroom! (Paint is great too, but not always apartment-friendly.) We just have a plain white cover for our duvet, so when I started the project, I wanted to find something a little more interesting. I immediately began a quest to find the best duvet covers (that didn’t cost way more than we can afford).

Ironically, while I was putting this post together, we decided to buy a quilt instead. (We bought this one, and it’s great – soft, pretty, affordable, and it washes well. I’d recommend it! It might be a little small if you have a box spring or tall mattress, but it works well for us.) Scott and I are both pretty hot sleepers, so a quilt is good for us because it can replace our duvet during the warmer months. I also appreciate the versatility of a quilt; we can use it as a coverlet, layer it on top of our duvet, or use it alone.

I didn’t want all my shopping to be in vain, though, so I’ve rounded up some of the best duvet covers that I came across in my search! Most of these are under $80, but I did throw a few splurges in there – sometimes it’s worth it!

I especially love this washed linen set from H&M – it looks so beautiful and comfortable, and it comes in a ton of colors. I’m a sucker for a good linen!

The Best Free Christmas Prints

I’ve mentioned before how much I love using prints to decorate. I’m all for hanging art, but it isn’t something I prioritize spending money on right now, so I like to make it as affordable as possible! I’ve found several ways to do this – Scott and I painted a few canvasses (and they’re actually pretty good); I’ve framed pages from an old atlas; I buy frames at Goodwill (frames are expensive), and of course, I like to find artwork that I can print at home. With Christmas coming up, I wanted to gather up all of my favorite free holiday-themed prints, so you can all spend your hard-earned money on things like gifts and a real Christmas tree! I’ve rounded up the 10 best free Christmas prints for you; these will make a great (and affordable) addition to your holiday décor!
