“Fall” into bed with cozy layers and luxe textures
As the leaves begin to change, so should your sleeping space. Cooler temperatures make it the perfect time of year for layering on luxe textures like velvet, fleece, faux fur and more. Here are a few of our favorite recommendations to bring your bed into fall:
There are lots of ways to add layers to your bed as the temperatures drop. Often designed to go on top of a thicker blanket, a coverlet is usually lightweight. But when it's in a decadent fabric like velvet (like this diamond prewashed version from Lili Alessandra), it adds warmth as well as depth of texture to your bedding. Fold it at the foot of your bed so it's ready to spread out on chillier nights, or use it alone if you've got the heat cranked up.
Blankets are a great way to add warmth without adding bulk. Fleece is a popular fabric choice for cooler months because it's cozy without being stifling. The Annie Selke collection of fleece blankets are made with a special knitting and polishing technique to make them especially soft and silky.
Especially warm thanks to their extra layers of fabric and batting, quilts add visual interest to the top of your bed while remaining functional on chilly nights. Designer John Robshaw has a variety of gorgeous options, including the fall-hued Lina collection inspired by the gardens of Ladakh, India. The underside features a multi-colored stripe so you can keep changing the look of your bed year-round.
Fall and winter are the perfect times of year to break out your down or down-alternative comforter. The ultimate choice for warmth, a soft duvet can make even the wettest, chilliest evening feel cozy. Add a layered look by folding it at the foot of the bed. Come speak to the experts at Bedside Manor who can help you choose the perfect weight and fill.
Go beyond the bedspread with cozy throws, luxe accent pillows and more.
Kevin O'Brien's elegant accent pillows come in almost any color you can imagine and their unique handpainted velvet covers will bring a touch of luxury to any room in your home.
Throws are great for layering at the end of your bed or draping over a chair, ready to wrap you up while you take in a good book. This Ann Gish silk fleece fringed version is machine washable and incredibly soft.
For the ultimate in luxury, reach for a throw or pillows by Evelyne Prélonge, who spent 20 years in Haute Couture before creating a "Home Couture" collection dedicated to faux furs created in a French workshop.
Keep a pair of fluffy UGG slippers by the bed so your feet stay warm from the second they hit the floor. UGG also makes cozy fleece throws that can be draped just about anywhere.
