Duvet Drama - The Conclusion

I know you all have been waiting on pins and needles to hear about the conclusion to my silly little duvet drama. Let me skip to the end and tell you it was a HEA ending.

What's that I see?
Why, it's a package from West Elm just for me containing the most lovely duvet.
But what shall I do with the ugly empty box it came in?
Ahh, perfect! Back to Pottery Barn you go!
And then our bed went from this:
To this:
In mere MOMENTS
(moments of me struggling with putting a huge king comforter inside a king duvet like it was the biggest pillow case everrrrr, but who's counting?).

Isn't she lovely?

And here's a quick glimpse of the bed with the sample paint I put on the wall.
Ignore Westie - she's camera whore:It looks slightly green in the picture, but I promise you it's the most beautiful grey-blue ever. It's "Smoke Infusion" by Valspar from Lowe's. I tested it last Friday in the kitchen and ended up loving it so much I painted my kitchen with it!

And so the drama comes to an end. The duvet is here, I love it, and can just focus on the "icing" to my bed cake. I have some euro shams that match that red quilt, but when I put them up, they seemed to tower over the other pillows and it looked weird. So for now, what you see is what we have. It's making me happy.
