I’m so excited to show you how I create a beautiful fall bed for my master bedroom! I think a bed should change with the seasons not only because it is the biggest piece of furniture in our bedrooms and should be thought of as a major decor element but also because our bedding needs often change from season to season. Today you get a tiny sneak peek at one part of my master bedroom and how I’m sleeping in pretty comfort all fall long!
Our bedroom is almost complete. I’m just waiting on a couple of custom extras before the big reveal. And what better time of year to show off bedding. Fall is my favorite!
Here in Pa, we are a four season home. We get all kinds of weather. And I must say I am so excited for cooler nights! Did you know that our summers can be as sweltering as Florida? Yup! And as humid too!
But this time of year our evenings start to cool down and not very long from now I’ll be sleeping without the AC and opening up the windows to cool breezes. So my bedding needs to reflect those changes.
Here’s our queen size bed. The old bed was actually on the opposing wall for 24 years and since the hardwood flooring was installed in our room we moved the bed! And love it!
I adore what I call mix and match bedding. I love picking and choosing different pieces and putting them together. I think, like most decor, creating a curated look is best. Yes, even in bedding!
All the beds in my home are topped with a tray, basket or bed tray with legs! For the master bedroom, I chose a gray-tone oval basket to hold a couple books, a cup of coffee, a tiny vase of blooms or leaves, my reading glasses or even a few pretty velvet pumpkins and a scattering of acorns.
Gotta love those gorgeous velvet pumpkins!
I think the most important layer of bedding is the one that touches our skin every night! You probably know we spend up to one-third of our lives sleeping. So the sheets we use are so important!
And I think it is sooooo important to lay on and cover up with the most beautiful, best quality and durable sheets we can afford. That’s why I choose linen sheets most of the time.
I LOVE the quality and beauty and long life of Saphyr Pure Linen sheets! They durable, have antibacterial properties, are hypoallergenic, and gets better the more they are laundered.
The longer I have them the better and softer they become. Not all linen sheets are the same! I have had other linen sheets that don’t compare! Trust me on this!!!!
For my fall bed, I chose soft washed pure linen sheets in SIMPLY NATURAL. Gorgeous and lofty! Don’t you love the double raw edge that is a stunning embellishment!
Some people think linen sheets are only for warm weather. They are mistaken! Linen sheets are for warm weather but for any other season too! They keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter because they are breathable!
The next layer on my bed is a thin quilt that acts as a blanket. I’m not a huge fan of blankets (unless they are linen) so I opt for a thin quilt. Even on the coldest nights linen sheets, a thin quilt and a duvet work fine!
Here’s the important thing to remember… it’s all about layering! Thin layers. Thick blankets and other bulky bedding get very heavy and cumbersome! So think thin. I’d rather have several light layers than one heavy one!
Our top layer is a white duvet with a very light down insert. When the weather becomes cold we will add a heavier down duvet, but not too heavy! I hate that weighted-down-by-my-covers feeling!
As you know, I LOVE white! Always have and I love a white duvet. When Beau comes to visit he often sleeps with us so I’ll throw a malaise coverlet over the duvet cover to protect it.
I’m such a “gold” girl. I’ve used this long lumbar pillow on the living room sofa this summer and now it’s on my bed. The settee against the far wall has this pretty vibrant gold running through the fabric.
This pillow adds a nice pop of color to an otherwise neutral room!
Your bedding should change with the season no matter where you live!
Here are things to think about…
- quality linen sheets
- light layers
- pillows that work with your preferred sleep position
- mix and match bedding for a curated look
- pretty accent pillows you love
- fun bed tray
Keep an eye out for the final reveal of the entire master bedroom and adjacent sitting room. And I can’t wait to share what is going above (literally) the bed!
Also, I’ll have a post soon with all the sources to everything in the master bedroom.
Do you have a tip about bedding as the weather gets cooler? We’d love to hear…
