I bought a very warm all natural duvet this year and it is a lot better than our previous synthetic one. It is warmer but breathable. For the person who said she doesn't understand why people like it so much in Europe I might have the answer...
We lived in NY for 5 lovely years and never needed a duvet cover because our house was very warm, even at night.
Now that we are back in France I put the heating in our bedroom at 18°C (don't ask me what it means in Farenheight) and we sleep really well. Some people here turn off the heating in their bedrooms at night!

@artesanata We keep our house around 15 . At night, with a window usually open a bit too in the bedroom! The trouble I've had with featherbed sand duvets has been in Europe, in the spring or fall, when it has often been very warm (i.e. Madrid in mid May...). Do most people use featherbeds year round? Or do they have just a sheet as an option? Anyways, I don't want to start a big debate. Just wondered why they're so popular. Maybe I'm just a hot sleeper :)

I would add osmanthus, the tea olive. It makes an excellent tall shrub for privacy along a fence in a mild climate, and the fragrance is wonderful. It's low maintenance, to boot!

Bare windows look good on pictures, but practically everyone need privacy living in the city or small town. Even if it's a remote cottage, just imagine in night time all those black "holes" (windows) glaring at you, does it make you comfortable?

I lives in a 1905 Edwardian house, the lounge/dinner/kitchen are surrounded by big tall sash windows. I removed drapes in the kitchen and dining area as it really opens up the space and I don't need that much privacy when I am cooking or eating. Though I keep the roller blind in the lounge where the TV is to block the sun exp for the long summer days.
