We are beginning to bring out the chunkier throws (anyone else hate the word “chunky”?), warmer blankets and flannel sheets this week in preparation for Fall/Winter. There’s nothing I love more about New England than experiencing the Fall – you can find me in my spare time on the sofa, cuddled up with a cozy blanket, sipping coffee with a good book in hand. I wanted to share 3 tips with you when transitioning your bedding during the colder months and have styled our guest bed 2 different ways.
1. Mixing Textures – adding more texture is definitely my first recommendation. By integrating texture through various blankets, sheets and duvets/comforters/quilts, you are adding more depth and warmth to your room. It makes the bed feel more “full” and adds a touch of softness. I love this Luxe Velvet Quilt and the Flannel Sheets from Garnet Hill!2. Layering – Layering is similar to adding texture, but by layering different textures, patterns and deep colors, you will get the full cozy look. This also includes layering more pillows. I typically have about 5 pillows on our bed – 2 for sleeping on, 2 shams and one decorative or a couple decorative.3. Colors/Patterns – I love incorporating deeper colors for the Fall/Winter, like navy or emerald green. But to keep the transition easy, you could just layer a couple of darker tones on top of your existing bedding through an extra blanket/throw or accent pillows. I love to bring in plaid for the Fall and this Faribault Plaid Throw is my favorite way to bring in pattern. shopping list:
