Well, it turns out that winter has arrived and it has caught me totally off guard. Yesterday, during the newscast, they commented that tonight was going to be especially cold and that temperatures would drop to an uncomfortable 4 degrees below zero. “It will not be so bad. It sure isn’t that cold, ”I thought as I was listening.
I continued my day with total normality and night came and with it the irritating 4º degrees below zero, these temperatures have hit us with total harshness and without any compassion. The freezing cold surprised me already in bed; I have to admit that it has been one of the worst nights of my life. I have never moved so much in bed looking for some kind of warmth that at no time of the night I have found.
I have been lucky and the night came to an end, managing to survive a weather ordeal that I do not wish on anyone. I assure you that such a night will not be repeated in my life. Do you know the first thing I did this morning? I have taken out my duvet and I have hugged him with great nostalgia, bursting into tears with an indescribable tenderness: few times I have needed something so strongly. With all my love, I have put him in my bed, begging him not to leave me during this hellish winter. I even think he has come to smile at me!
Duvet covers have to be a staple in any home, but they are nothing without duvet covers . This bedding is what really brings life and splendor to the Nordics. They are the ones that dress our quilts with quality and class and thanks to them they acquire life and color. Without the covers, the duvets are empty, bland, bare and almost inert.
In addition to protecting and giving life to our duvets, there are many qualities and benefits that duvet covers offer us. One of the advantages is that they are very easy to wash, just as if it were a classic sheet. With them we will avoid having to frequently wash the duvets, with the complexity that this entails.
When spring and summer arrive and the temperatures calm down, it is the ideal time to remove and put back the duvet, but this does not mean that the covers have to disappear from our bedroom. We can continue to use them as if they were a top sheet. In this aspect, the duvet covers also win, since they offer us the benefit of being reversible and being able to exchange them and decorate our room in two different ways with a single bedding.
More advantages of duvet covers …
The covers weigh less than the traditional blankets with which our mothers and grandmothers used to warm themselves, being much more comfortable at bedtime and moving in bed, apart from that they are more breathable and fit better to our body. We can also use them as if they were bedspreads, with the consequent saving of money since you will not need to buy a quilt and top sheet to dress your bed. Another benefit of the covers is the comfort and the time we save when making the bed: it is enough to stretch it out and leave the bed ready, whether we use it with the duvet or as a top sheet.
Are you worried about the decoration of your bedroom? I am convinced that it is, but with the covers you will not have any problems thanks to the fact that they offer a great variety and possibilities due to the multitude of fabrics, embroidery and themes with which the covers are made. You can use them in youth bedrooms, children’s bedrooms, for weddings, in the grandparents’ room … And the styles are just as varied, whether our tastes are close to vintage style or if we prefer them more modern or elegant.
So you know, the cold has come into our lives and this year it is being really cruel to us. So do not forget to rescue your duvet and duvet covers from the closet and dress your bed with them. When you have prepared it, stand in front of the bed and observe it carefully and without haste. Surely you like it so much as it has been that you will be wanting to get into bed!
