Duvet Tweak

I purchased a comforter and duvet/shams set for BR2*.  About 30 years ago, I saw some ready-made comforters and duvets with this handy ring and tie combo.  Many duvets have corner ties, but they make the comforter bunch up in the corners.  I retrofit my new bedding.

Sew plastic rings (found in the notions department of many fabric stores) to the corners of the duvet and twill tape to the corners of the duvet.
I start with the duvet cover inside out, on top of the duvet.  Tie a bow in each corner.  Turn the duvet right-side out.  Button up the opening and give it a good shake.  No lumps!
* On the blueprints, we named each bedroom #1, #2, #3 in clockwise order because people interpret the bedrooms differently. I consider BR1 the "master" bedroom because it has an en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. But, others perceive the largest bedroom (BR2) as the master. To avoid confusion, we assigned them numbers.  One can lie in bed in BR1 and view the mountains.  With the windows open, people in BR2 can hear the creek rushing below.

    1. Thanks, but it's not my idea. I wonder you can't find comforters with rings any more?

  3. Thanks for sharing this great idea! So simple and so efficient.
    I smile at your numbering of the bedrooms, very scientific approach. But from your description (which made me so jealous!) you may consider more romantic names like "mountain view bedroom" and "singing creek bedroom" :)

    1. There is a shortage of housing for visiting scientists. It's so bad, many have to delay or cancel their visits because they can't find housing. I'm preparing 'singing creek bedroom' as visiting scientist housing, with BR3 as a nursery/kids room, if they need to bring their kid(s).

      If you know someone considering applying for the JILA visiting scientists program, refer them to my place! It's a 10 min walk from JILA and both CU campuses (main and east).

  4. Very Clever. I used to use magnets. This is more elegant.
