1. West Elm / 2. Target                                                                    

 The most common decorating issue my girlfriends have is finding decor that their boyfriends can agree to. If I had a striped shirt for every time a girl asked me this I’d have a closet full of striped shirts… oh wait. Which brings me to my next point. I have a gray and white striped shower curtain. I’ve painted my walls gray and white stripes. And I’ve also fallen in love with a certain gray and white striped duvet cover but I’m pretty sure that would be crossing some sort of line, so now I’m passing this one on to you.

The stripes are wide (read: not feminine) and it is one of the two male-approved colors (navy blue and gray)  so your boyfriend will probably say “yes! I love this duvet cover I think we should definitely get it and that papier-mache tortoise shell you’ve been eyeing at West Elm.”

No just kidding, he’ll say “what’s a duvet? …. That one’s okay.” Which is all a girl could hope for. So here are the deets – it’s from West Elm. It’s on sale. And yunno what else? I found it at Target for cheaper!  

Now answer me this, are gray & white striped walls, a gray & white striped shower curtain, and gray & white striped duvet cover too much?
