Recently, I have been looking up online stores to get a new bed duvet and pillow covers. While doing it, I have found other terms which might describe the duvet like comforter. I have been wondering what is all different and what is exactly what.

For people like me, I am going to organize definitions of those and give you information to decide the best products which would be suitable for your own taste.

What is Duvet and Comforter?

Image result for duvet bed

Duvet?

A duvet is a soft, flatter version of a comforter that is usually filled with synthetic fibers or down such as feather or wool. Unlike a comforter, they’re not supposed to be quilted or stitched. Duvets are meant to be a type of insert, and are sold separately from other duvet covers or coverlets. This makes it so you can mix and match them with other bedding, without being tied to a whole set that comforters usually come in. Duvets are usually warm enough that you don’t have to use additional sheets or blankets with them.

For this reason, duvets are great if you hate spending a lot of time making the bed or fussing with a top sheet, because a duvet with any sort of cover can easily be removed and washed instead. Duvets themselves are usually dry clean only, which is more expensive and time-costly. Mind you, you can still use sheets, as they’re still probably easier to wash then a duvet cover.


Comforter? 

A comforter is a fluffy, thick, quilted blanket used as the top blanket on your bed. Sheets or additional thin blankets can be used under them. Comforters are typically filled with synthetic fiber materials such as polyester or cotton blends, and are usually quilted or stitched in some pattern so that the material is secure and in place and distributed evenly.

Comforters are typically sold in bedding sets or bed-in-a-bag sets with other coordinating pieces such as sheets and pillow shams, all being in the same bed size. This means that they are meant to be the final piece, and so not meant to be covered with anything or need any additional accessories. This makes decorating your bed very simple.

Comforters are also usually very easy to wash, and can either be hang dried or machine dried on a low and gentle setting.


So, What is simlilar and different from Duvet and Comforter?

The similarities between the two are that they both work as the main fluffy, thick blanket on your bed. They both should be aesthetically pleasing to you (with or without a cover), as they will most likely be a visible main feature.

However, I would say that there is also difference between two.

The difference between these two bedding items is that a comforter is supposed to be used as is, and a duvet is supposed to be used with a duvet cover, coverlet, or top quilt. A duvet might keep you warmer, as well, because it’s meant to be used without any additional sheets or blankets, although you can add them if you wish.

  • Duvets are usually sold with a duvet cover only.
  • Comforters are often sold with set of pillow shams or pillowcases, and sometimes matching sheets.
  • The labels ‘bed in a bag’ or ‘bedding set’ are usually compatible with comforters.
  • Check the manufacturers website, they will probably detail the differences.

Try Choose The Best Bedspread

What you choose depends largely on your sleeping preferences, and your choice of decor. If you like a very matched look, and want to keep the same look over time, consider a comforter set. Many people who choose this option will buy one bedding set for cool weather and one for warm weather.

If you like to change your decor out a bit, try a duvet. You can make your bedroom look a bit different, just by swapping out your duvet cover.

Comforters are meant to go with sheet sets and pillow cases. They also hang over the sides of the bed. A duvet usually goes only from edge to edge. It’s tradition to sleep directly under a duvet without a top sheet.  Finally, a duvet is a less work when it comes to making your bed. Comforters are bulkier, and take a bit of effort, especially on a queen or king bed.

*Quilt As Another Choice

Of course, a duvet and a comforter aren’t your only choices. If you’d like a lightweight option to avoid overheating, try a quilt instead. If you prefer a basic look, and want to keep warm, a blanket might be a good choice. Both quilts and blankets are good options for guest rooms and kids’ bedrooms because of their simplicity. A down duvet is is actually the best temperature regulating option you can get.

LIFE IN GERMANY – HOME DECOR – Butlers vs DEPOT What Is Better? / Importance of Brand Marketing

Advertisements

Advertisements

Hello, I hope you all have a safe and good weekdays this week. Weekend came back again!

I made this post, becuase, Since few days ago, I have been thinking about difference between two stores. Stores that I am about to talk about are DEPOT and Butlers.

Image result for butlers
One of Butlers Stores in Koeln Germany

The story is, I was passing through the street which has those 2 stores in the same line and saw a obvious difference on weekdays after 6 pm. I was trying to go to DEPOT around that time but I had to turn around and get out of there as soon as I saw too long waiting lines with more than 20-30 ppl in front of cashiers. I found Butlers next to it after that and spontaneously got in instead.

As I talked about little bit of DEPOT on my previous post, I will briefly let you know what Bulters is.


Image result for butlers

Butlers GmbH & Co KG is a German lifestyle retail chain that sells home accessories, decoration, furniture and gifts in more than 160 stores throughout Europe. The Cologne-based company also uses the tag line “made for your home” and the presentation of decoration ideas by means of themed tables to run an online shop for Austria, Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland and Spain.

The assortment contains kitchenware, household appliances, furniture, table decorations, home accessories and textiles.


Surprisingly, there was no waiting line at all and had quite less people in Butlers compared to DEPOT. So I thought this store would show customers bad quality on products. It must have had any bad part

Image result for I thought so gif

However, I was truly shocked looking around the store. They did not have any single worse part on diversity and quality of products. Actually, It was even better for me if I combine its pricing as well, as a reason. They made me buy stuffs with prices that I think It is cheap, which I never felt in DEPOT. (I got pretty cute cupboards made with stone, cooking book with colorful design, and some wine and champagne glasses.)


Something is going wrong with Butlers, even though they have products in better condition for consumers than DEPOT. (At least for what I have consumed) I felt sorry about Butlers.

There should be reasons why this is happening, I wanted to figure out what is differences between two. I do not think location is one of them, as they are in the same street line next to each other.

Image result for curious gif
Hmmmmm…

What could it reasons to make differences of who makes much more profit when someone is losing customers? I just tried to find out the reasons by my won in my point of view.

As I once studied marketing subjects in university, I simply wanted to get rid of my wonder personally after organizing my ideas. I reached below 3 key points that I thought it could be reasons of.

“All the matter of Brand Marketing, including visual part as well.”


1.Matching Brand Image and Real Store Atmosphere

I had to admit that DEPOT was good at matching image that they already set up in each store. On this point, DEPOT won. You would feel comfortable, as visual image when you enter into the store would be the same as one in website for branding.

This is what you can feel from DEPOT brand and its store.

Image result for depot

And this is images that you would feel from Butlers.

Do you see what is different? Integrating “image chain” is important, I guess.

2.Importance of Store Display

Image result for depot butlers
Image result for butlers

What I felt from each store is that, when it comes to DEPOT, it is well organized and divided into some right sections for specific uses. Customer can do shopping by their own, as there is no need to ask what is where. It is important to have Customer-focused Store organization and Visual Coordination matching with their brand image. Sorry to Butlers, as it has to get lower grade on this part compared to DEPOT.


3.Make sure of Colors Brand Uses

I do not think below colorful choice is not looking good for Butlers as Home Decor Shop, when thinking of their assortment of products. This color combination makes audiences expect that they will have items in kitsch, kid’s toy style. Actually, It is not. They do have items and its style like what DEPOT has.

In my opinion, I wonder why those colors had to be chosen.
Advertisements

For Businesses related to Home -decor, Cosmetics, Fashion, who sells products in style and tempting design, Matching its design Image visually makes people comfortable which leads them to final consumption.

What I would suggest is that, Do not use many different colors if you want to grow and keep your brand to a high end one. High end brand does not go for too much concept on their branding. For example, as you can see on number 1, DEPOT does not go too far from dark green color image but stick to it that they already set up as key point.

Check my previous post (Effective combination of color) abiout what kind of color combination makes your business and image(Including blogs) look great.


Well, I will personally use Butlers again as I like their products and price, however, little unsatisfied part is still remained in my point of view when it comes top marketing.

LIFE IN GERMANY – HOME DECOR – Green Shopping in OBI on Valentines Day

Advertisements
Advertisements

Today is Valentine’s day. As I mentioned on previous post, My boyfriend and I decided to spend our time doing practical but enjoyable things for the day.

For starting of the special day, as I have been thinking about putting green plant in apartment for little home decor, I suggested to go a place for it and my boyfriend agreed with it.

We went to OBI right away to get some plant right away. It was located in the nearest place that we can reach.



OBI GmbH & Co. Deutschland KG is a German multinational home improvement supplies retailing company. Founded in 1970, Obi is the largest DIY retailer in Europe, and the third largest in the world, behind The Home Depot and Lowe’s. It is headquartered in Wermelskirchen, Germany, and belongs to the Tengelmann Group.

Primarily, customers are families and traditional tradesmen, but professional tradesmen also value wide assortment of 40-60,000 articles per store on average. Core competence lies in supporting customers in all their small and large construction projects, with our products and with our advice.




On the way, we dropped by grocery store nearby and grabbed some donuts for us. And then got inside to take a look what we should get. OBI is not only dealing with materials for making and building up home appliances, but also with cute home decor items and green plants.

Image result for lets go gif



We directly got to a section for plant to decorate home and got 2 small items to put on our stereo and coach table in living room. One is a coffee plant and the other one is a Cactus.

Sorry to admit but I am not good at taking care of alive things like plants, so I thought the cactus would be the best idea for decorating and keeping it alive. Well, about coffee one, I had to get that because it looks so cute. See what I got from there from beautiful photos that I took!



After shopping, we cooked dinner by ourselves which was pork and beef steak with salad and side dishes of potato wedge and sweet potato fries. It was perfect Valentine’s day ever.

DAILY – Saturday Date Night – Visiting Home Decor Shop DEPOT

Advertisements
Advertisements

Today, I was supposed to go to the downtown with my boyfriend to get some special grocery and look around home decor shop. We got ready and headed to the shop called “DEPOT”.


To briefly talk about what store is this about, Gries Deco Holding GmbH, who has DEPOT brand, is a German retail company based in Niedernberg and operates a branch network for home accessories and small furniture under the brand name DEPOT. The company was founded in Schöllkrippen in 1948 as a company for the production of artificial fruits and Christmas tree decorations and was majority owned by the Swiss Migros Group from 2011 to December 2019.

Therefore, this brand is quite famous in Germany to people who are interested in home decorating and related stuffs.


Back to the main story of the post, I have just heard of the store but never been there actually, so we simply decided to visit to see what they have for home decorating. I visited one store in Frankfurt Zeil street.

Well, I would say that overall mood of the brand and store is quit different from what I have expected. Meanwhile expecting little bit heavy atmosphere, how it actually looks like was much more brighter and lighter. See below photos that I have taken.

As I have been into plants decoration at home, I just took some of corner for it in the store.

As you can see, entire atmosphere of the shop is floral, bright, light colorful.

I was looking around fake plant decoration to put on kitchen table, but my boyfriend did not like fake plant at all. That is why he kept being annoyed saying negative about fake products.

He insisted like we got to put real plant at home which finally makes home much eco-friendly and better. It was so annoying because I was not caring about that much like him, however, I had to admit that he got a point on that. Besides, there was no products making me feel like buying so I just quit getting one from there. Instead, we have got whiskey bottle for my boyfriend and glass straw for my personal water bottle.

Then, we had a dinner like snacks nearby and was about to go back to home.

Right then, I realized that my boyfriend has been still minding what he said to me about getting fake plant. He knew that he kind of pissed me off in the store. I think that was a sort of making up. He strongly suggested me to get real pretty plant or flower at flower shop in the city, saying ‘I would like to buy something for you, you have wanted to get some for a kitchen table.’ That was pretty sweet and cute.

Yes, we went to flower shop to check what they have. They did have such beautiful flowers in the shop. Among those, Sunflowers with vivid orange color captured my eyes and attention. So we got 3 of those. I put it in a long vase that I have already had as soon as we got home.

The bottle next to the vase? That’s right, it is the whiskey bottle that we bought from DEPOT. Isn’t it pretty? I usually have no idea about liquor bottles, but this one has simple but stylish shape, so I told my boyfriend it would be good idea to keep it for him.

I think I got to do this much often with my boyfriend. I mean, discussing about home decorating and figure out what kind of tastes he has on it.

This Saturday Night is going off and Sunday has begun. I wish you have a good weekend as well!

HOME DECOR – INTERIOR – Top 2 Recommendable Curtain Designs

Advertisements
Advertisements

Recently, I have been so into choosing the right curtains for living room and bedroom for my apartment. First of all of the reason why I need to get another one, current curtain of mine does not really cover sunlight from outside well. Time to change it. Second of all, well, Let’s just say, I just simply want to get refreshed in my lovely place with different style.

Trying new things for the best is always right.

Here, I have found and organized some designs that I can possibly get for it. There is 2 types of curtain designs for me in big way. Check below my wish list with home decor views with various designs.


1.No Pattern Curtains (Simple)

Personally, I prefer Curtain Design with simple color. It gives you clean image and make your room look larger and wider than its actual size when you get perfectly matched home decor goods with it. For A Tip, It is the best to choose a color of curtain from one already in your home decor goods.

Click each image if you would like to get more information of products.

2.Pattern Curtain (Lively And Kitsch)

Unlikely no pattern curtains, Pattern Designs give you much more lively image. It would be even much more lively when the pattern is with colors. Also, Pattern design is usually needed for a remarkable point of entire design. It makes a effect to bright up whole room easily.

Of course, colored curtain without pattern is also able to be a point of home decor when choosing the right color. But, pattern can even maximize its effect with lighting up the whole mood of a room. I would say that the most attractive point of pattern design is outlandish, colorful and eccentric. I mean, “kitsch” mood.
