Hello dearies! Today I thought I’d pop in to share a quick little home decor idea with you:
How to change the look of your bedding seasonally without having to buy a whole new bedding set.
Whew. I almost wanted to make that the post title! #GladIWentWithPlanB – So for comparisons sake, let’s first have a look back at what our Master Bedroom bedding looked like for the spring/summer seasons, shall we?
Mmmmk. Let’s break this down: White sheets, crisp white striped euro shams, paisley comforter folded down at the bottom of the bed – standard shams to match the comforter, gray down-alternative blanket, various accent pillows.
So what I ended up doing to cozy up the place a bit, was to layer the comforter (for warmth) under my gray blanket, thus making the blanket into a coverlet. Then I found a nubbly gray plaid throw and pillows to accessorize it with at Target. Easy peasy, right?
Presto Chang-o: my winter bed
Our room contains a variety of whites and off whites, and to make the bed lean a bit more toward the warm side, the throw/pillows I chose were gray and cream, instead of gray and white. I also purchased some tufted cream euro shams from PB on clearance to finish out the warmer look.
To me, coziness is all about layers of texture. Here’s a close up of a few of the bedding textures in the warm glow of lamplight:
Oh look! A chutie little dog came to model for us! Hello Miss Caroline
So there’s our little seasonal bed makeover. Not pictured, but essential to all wintery beds? Flannel sheets. Our favorite is micro-brushed flannel. So much softer, warmer, and pill-ball-less than conventional!
Well all this bed talk has me wanting to go snuggle back under the covers again! Ciao for now
