How to layer your bed for the cooler months
Winter is upon us so it’s time to experiment with color and texture, pile on pillows, and add soft layers ensuring a cozy nights sleep all season long.
We were so excited when the bed finally arrived last week! We’ve been sleeping in the guest bedroom for four months! Our bedroom is huge and a work in progress. We have multiple house projects going at the moment and are prioritizing and doing what we can. Because we both work, our long to-do list is tackled over the weekend. Slow and steady, we will get things done! So that said, I’m sharing just a glimpse of the bedroom :) I’m in the market for a chair or chase for the corner, a dresser (possibly vintage), lamp, ceiling fan, and the list goes on. I try not to get overwhelmed or make quick decisions. That’s tough because I’m anxious to complete this room!
Today I’ll be sharing how I layered our bed for wintertime using luxurious bedding from Pom Pom at Home. Their bedding, throws, and blankets are exceptional in every way. I’ve used their bedding for years and lasts forever and gets softer over time. You can visit them here!
Start with linen sheets
I like the look and feel of linen. It’s light weight and makes the perfect base for your bed. Belgium linen lasts a long time, is durable, and gets softer with each wash. If I’m in the mood for something really silky-soft, I use the bamboo sheets (very popular with my family and guests). In Europe it’s common to leave the top sheet off, using just the fitted sheet. Try it and see what feels best to you!
Add a light weight blanket
There are so many options. I added the Huntington coverlet in sea glass as my first layer. This blanket is the perfect weight and is so soft. This coverlet was used in our coastal blue and white bedroom 2 years ago.
I wanted a clean, modern, lightweight linen duvet cover that could be used year-round. The Blair duvet cover cover is the perfect weight and made of the finest Belgium linen. Wash and dry as usual, no ironing needed. I love that! Pom Pom at Home is all about a relaxed, cozy vibe. There are some things that are worth splurging on and this is one of them. It took me a few purchases of sub quality linens to realize that I’m actually spending more money buying the less expensive bedding because it just doesn’t last. They don’t wash well and stains seem more difficult to get out.
The Blair duvet cover is made of 100% linen and finished with simple tie closures. The matching shams are so soft and I like the frayed edges. I chose white because it will work year round and I’ll simply change up pillows and throws seasonally.
My husband isn’t a fan of lots of pillows on the bed so to start I added just a few: two king size shams and a Montauk body pillow. For our platform bed this style fit perfectly. I like sleeping with two pillows so I might add a couple more .. we’ll see.
Layer, layer, layer. This is my favorite part! Finishing layers are so cozy and I like to wrap up in them when I read at night. I’m obsessed with the Newport Blanket! The soft knit linen is the perfect weight for the cooler months and I like the thick stripe in ‘natural’ alongside a thin midnight stripe and the tassels are the perfect touch along the edge.
My final addition is a super soft, chunky hand-knit throw that adds an extra layer of luxe texture and inviting warmth to any space. There’s a good chance this throw will be used downstairs on the couch sometimes!
