Seeking: Two Girly, Adorable and Affordable Twin Duvets

Before we jump into today's scheduled post, I wanted to apologize for taking so long to get this out this week. (And for not posting last week either.) It's been a bit crazy around these parts lately. Last week I celebrated my 30th birthday and I am admittedly in denial. We partied by staying in and watching trashy tv. We're so exciting! In other news, our family has managed to pass around a nasty little stomach bug over the last 4 weeks. The latest victim: baby Cullen. My poor, poor baby! The pukes are so awful for babies so little.

I will preface today's post by saying: Why is it so hard to pick out a duvet?

Since we painted our room, I've come to realize just how dingy our girls room looks.

Though the wall color is neutral beige, it actually looks dirty. Like, someone smeared dirt on the walls, dirty... I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that we are just now dealing with this. Okay, so it's not that bad. I'm sure that Justin would tend to agree that I might be a little dramatic at times. But hey, I need to be a little dramtic in order to get motivated.

To get the ball rolling on this room, I put together a little mood board (or two.)


So what's the hang up? Finding the desired cute duvet/quilt/fabric within our set bedding budget. All of my "designs" are somewhat reliant on finding the right bedding and I have been totally striking out. Making a duvet would be super easy but the fabrics I like are just outright crazy expensive.

As a result of the hunt for the perfect duvet/quilt, our children have grown to hate shopping with us. Just this past weekend we spent about 30 minutes in the bedding aisles at Target trying to convince ourselves that we liked one of the available duvet/quilt options. Our Target is currently under construction and inventory is disappointingly low. Rather than going home empty handed, we grabbed some Tostitos chips, a jar of queso, and called it a day. (Because it's blasphemy to leave Target empty handed. And I love me some Tostitos and queso.)

I've resorted to surfing the internet for options and it's up to you to help make the final decision.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9

We're giving you the chance to VOTE for your favorite!

Once we make a decision, I'll be able to pick out a paint color for the room. Believe me, the girls room is in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint and I can't wait to get to that point!

Someone please tell me I'm not the only one to feel so paralyzed over a seemingly simple purchase? Who out there has experienced a similar commitment issue when it came to purchasing a home-good?

**This post contains some Amazon affiliate links, however, we are seriously considering all of the above duvets/quilts as possible options! Also, we reserve the right to override the above vote based on our final vision and budget allowances.


  1. I have to say I am a sucker for polka dots but went with the practical and fun chevron from Target - I love aqua/ turquoise too :) Good luck with the decorating

    1. Thanks, Amber! There are so many cute options, it's been hard to pick just one. Thanks so much for your feedback, it's really helpful!!

  3. I totally feel you - when it comes to home decor and design I sometimes just feel completely paralyzed - it's so hard to make decisions when it comes down to furniture or linens that you will have for a while! Do your girls have an opinion of which one they like best?

    1. It's such a relief to know I'm not the only one. The girls said that they like the "zigzags", so I guess we have it narrowed down to three options now!
