What Houzz contributors are saying:
Wander through a written worldGetting lost in a good book is like going on an adventure to another world, much more so than just getting lost in a movie or TV series. There’s something much more evocative about books – especially proper printed books rather than e-readers – that enables you to get properly swept away in a story and its characters. Keeping your latest read, or even a stack that you’re looking forward to diving into, on your bedside table will give you ample opportunities to lie in bed with a good book and immerse yourself in another world.
CONS: Down and feather doonas can’t be machine washed (only dry cleaned), and are not hypo-allergenic, so they can trigger dust allergies, eczema and asthma. They also need to be aired and beaten regularly to prevent the growth of dust mites and bacteria, and the feathers inside can clump, making the doona lumpy. Plus, if you have a high quantity of feathers in your doona, the quill ends can get a bit pokey.BEST FOR: Those in very cool climates, homes without great insulation, and who tend to get cold easily will do well with a feather- and/or down-filled doona. They’re also good for the eco-conscious, as they have the lowest carbon footprint of all options listed.
