West Elm Parachute Duvet Review

Our new duvet arrived last week!  I'm in LOVE!!

I love the color (feather grey).  I love how it flows!  I love how soft it is! I love how warm it is! I love how it has ties on the inside to keep the comforter from slipping!  I love how it has a slightly wrinkled look so you can't tell if I was too lazy to take it out of the dryer on time or it's just supposed to be that way!
Rave reviews from this customer!!

I put it on the bed before washing (to make sure I liked it and didn't want to send it back). 
It was perfect. 
I was then afraid to wash it because it looked so good straight out of the package
(but not washing it is obviously gross).
I then washed it according to the directions and it actually came out looking better..
and it was REALLY soft. 
Also, the dog stopped rolling on it because it smelled new. Bonus.

The only negative is that it is a little short on each side of our king bed.  If you have a queen, I would order a king to get that extra width.  Not a deal breaker for me though...just need to some coordinating bedding.

And now for the next bedroom decision....

Do the windows need something more??

I'm debating between white or light grey curtains hung something like this...

Or white or light grey Roman shades like this...

What are your thoughts?  Or am I just crazy and I should leave the windows alone?
I NEED your opinions!!!
(Don't talk to Nate before answering this! :P)

Tomorrow we'll do a full tour of the master bedroom to end the week!


  1. Your new duvet looks great! I'm partial to roman shades for a nice, clean look in a bay/angled window. The ones in my office are very DIY friendly, so you could easily make some...

  2. I would go light grey curtains as described in your post.

  3. Love the duvet. I have four W.E. duvets in my shopping cart right now and I can't decide which to buy. All?

    Re: the windows, I think they need a little something, and I like the roman shade idea. I think that the high and wide, long curtain look might distract from the amazing windows and their configuration. It's such a great room!

  4. I drop a leave a гesponse whenever I especially enϳoy a post on a ωebsite or ӏ hаve ѕomething to valuable to contгibute to the diѕcussion.
    It іѕ triggered by the passіon ԁisplayed in the post I looked
    at. And on this article "West Elm Parachute Duvet Review".
    I ωaѕ movеd enough to ԁroρ a thought :-P I
    do have ѕome questiοns for уou if yοu usually do not
    mind. Is it only me оr does it appeaг like ѕomе of these commеnts
