As the temperature drops and the days grow shorter, we find ourselves gravitating toward our warmest layers and coziest spaces. Few things are better than getting snuggled up under a pile of blankets, and winter is the perfect time to substitute that pile with chic winter bedding. Whether you prefer bold patterns, bright colors, or understated and neutral hues, there are plenty of ways to give your linens that extra oomph without sacrificing comfort. If you want to take your bedroom’s ambiance to the next level, keep reading and learn about our favorite ways to create a cozy and stylish retreat.
Selecting high-end linens is the first and arguably most important part of elevating your bedding. Bed sheets, though hidden under pillows and blankets, have the power to transform your bedtime experience. Soft, high thread-count fabrics feel luxurious against the skin, helping you to wake up feeling rested and refreshed. To make the most of your investment, opt for bamboo or linen that regulate temperature, helping you stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
In the winter, there’s no such thing as too many layers, and achieving the right balance can bring the comfort and opulence of a luxury resort to your own home. Not to mention, layering can serve as an opportunity to incorporate depth and contrasting textures. We recommend placing a thin coverlet on top of your fresh linens before adding a plush down comforter with a cotton duvet cover. Consider a heavyweight down or down alternative comforter for those extra frigid nights. Layer in fluffy euro shams and decorative pillows for the ultimate bedroom bliss.
Cozy pillows and throws add an extra layer of insulation to your bedding, and the possibilities are endless when it comes to mixing and matching. Start with larger pillows and add smaller accent pillows to create a cohesive look. Don’t be afraid to play with color—a tasteful mix of patterns brings visual interest and tells a color story. For the perfect finishing touch, top off your cozy bedding with a stylish throw. Go with a faux fur blanket to make a statement, or keep it simple and inviting with a classic cable knit.
If a bold color scheme isn’t your cup of tea, stick to a neutral and earthy palette to set the tone for your minimalist escape. Warm shades of beige, gray, taupe, and white will create a calming atmosphere where you can find your zen. These versatile tones work well with various design styles, from mountain modern to rustic. Don’t underestimate the timeless elegance of a white-on-white aesthetic for a clean and classic look. All-white bedding feels spacious and airy and can easily be dressed up with throws and blankets as the seasons change.
Nothing says comfort like customization, and bedding trim is a great place to start. Embracing clean lines and cozy borders results in a tailored aesthetic that makes you feel tucked in and ready for quality hibernation. You won’t regret taking the extra step to add a tape trim or beautiful embroidery to your duvet and shams, especially when the weather’s cold. The only downside is you’ll never want to leave! We always remind our clients that the smallest details can have the most significant impact on the overall tranquility of a space.
