The First Rental Purchase

Last Friday, Halle and I had absolutely nothing planned. We were hanging out at home and while she played on the floor in her nursery, I sat nearby (with my laptop resting atop of Babar), checking out things online. I had resigned myself to not buying ANYTHING at all from the rental until we moved... until I saw that West Elm was having a flash bedding sale that day.


This caught my attention, as since we found out we were moving, B and I started to discuss getting ourselves a nice King Size bed. I knew if we could score ourselves a nice duvet cover for a good price, we'd have a good start. After looking through the styles that were on offer, I sent B a few links who picked the Gallery Stripe Duvet as his favourite of the three options...

Since it was a one day sale, and I wanted to be certain about our purchase, I packed up Halle and we drove over to West Elm to check out the duvet in person. It looks even better in person, so home it came and I only had to spend $40 and change! Score!

My vision of the room is completely different than what you see above. We plan to go with plain white sheets and shams, and pull out some of the colours in the duvet using toss pillows. It's hard to picture looking at that photo, since it looks like a dorm room there. I'd also like to find a nice quilt or coverlet for the foot of the bed - I can't wait to go shopping (again)!

The biggest search will be for the perfect bed frame. I don't have anything specific in mind yet... and still a little time to consider different options.

I apologize if I am boring you all with my recent posts! As you can imagine, things are a little crazy at the moment, and purging, cleaning and organizing do not make for a very exciting post. Possibly less exciting than my recent material. I promise to share more on what we've been doing to prepare the house for renting it out, later this week...

  3. Moving all the way to Vancouver is a big deal! I used to live out there myself. You're definitely right to try to hold off on buying until you get there (in most cases). It's not worth it to ship most things. Good luck with everything. I hope you love it out west!

  4. Leave it to WE to veer oneself off track lol... excellent choice and price! Also glad to hear I'm not the only one who secretly gets her way by offering up pre-approved options to her other half :)

  5. Hey, I must have hit the same sale! It is such a nice duvet set and you are right, looks much better in person than it does in the photos.
