WHICH DIRECTION DO THE BUTTONS GO ON A DUVET COVER WHEN MAKING THE BED?

WHICH DIRECTION DO THE BUTTONS GO ON A DUVET COVER WHEN MAKING THE BED?

It’s a practical question that deserves an answer.
Which direction do the buttons go on a duvet cover, the head or foot of the bed? Du~vet pronounced “due-vay” is French for “down” a comforter filled with down with a washable cover.
A duvet cover is the protective cover that slips over the down comforter. From a professional housekeeper and an obsessive home-makers point of view the answer is truly a preference, but in all honesty the buttons go to the foot of the bed.

STAGED HOMES FOR SALE OR SHOW

STAGED HOMES FOR SALE OR SHOW

I love fake or artificial foods such as grapes, breads, and pastries. Even as a young girl I had a plastic container full that I now share with my grand children. Good quality artificial foods are fun to stage... around the house. Maybe inside an antique country cabinet or above a wine shelf.
I even have a basket hanging above the sink with carrots, celery, onions and mushrooms. Just can't get enough. Designer homes and homes for sale sometimes stage rooms to make them appear more welcoming.

Decorating with Coffee Beans

Mason Jars of any kind, old, or new, antique, colorful or vintage are one of the first items on my shopping list when decorating because they can be used in so many different ways. People fill them with candy, flour, bath salts, and candle holders for outdoor events.I am using this one filled with rich hazelnut coffee beans and setting it in a china cabinet.It’s a perfect place next to the antique coffee grinder and flour sifter.
 
Decorating with coffee beans is a very festive way to add a bit of welcoming aroma throughout your home especially right before you are ready to entertain guests.

Unfortunate for me I discovered I have a fedish for collecting soaps. They smell good, their charming, colorful, comforting, delightful, dreamy. Soap comes in all shapes, sizes and fragrances and they look beautiful when displayed in a bathroom or glass armoire.
Some soaps are hand made, natural, oatmeal, beeswax, they are made with almond oil, cocoa butter, grapefruit seed, honey and much more. It’s a beautiful combination of quality essential oils, and fragrances that makes us feel like we are in heaven.
