Crowned Crane Bedding


Since I moved into my L.A. apartment, I've dreamed of decorating it in all neutral and white tones, conveying the feeling of an open, clean space. The gorgeous crowned crane bedding at Anthropologie was to be the first step in my mission to make my apartment the kind you see in interior design magazines. However, the price of said bedding stopped me in my tracks and it absolutely refuses to go on sale (trust me, I've been checking the website once a week since last July!). As much as I covet the lovely origami folds and wooden flower buttons of this very elegantly understated bedding, I refuse to cough up hundreds of dollars for it. So if you know of any similar alternatives for a better price, please let me know because you'd be doing me a great favor!

That was incredibly helpful! So whoever left me that note, thank you! I'm actually placing an order right now. It's exactly what I wanted--but much more in line with my budget! :)

wow! thank you for the West Elm option! I love it and am going to order it today. I've been so, so, so sad that the Anthropologie option is so expensive. this is the perfect alternative!

I have been watching the Crowned Crane for a long time too, and I don't think it's ever going on sale. West Elm has stopped carrying their pin tuck duvet cover, but there are still some unopened ones available on ebay. Target has a kind of cheaper looking version if anyone can't find a West Elm... http://www.target.com/Home-Kissing-Pleat-Comforter-Set/dp/B001JIAUT8/ref=br_1_19?ie=UTF8&id=Home%20Kissing%20Pleat%20Comforter%20Set&node=372864011&searchSize=30&searchView=list&searchPage=1&sr=1-19&qid=1284590875&rh=&searchBinNameList=subjectbin%2Cprice%2Ctarget_com_primary_color-bin%2Ctarget_com_size-bin%2Ctarget_com_brand-bin&searchRank=salesrank&frombrowse=1
