What to do when you don’t want to relegate your favorite bedding to a single season? Give it a fall refresh, with a few simple tips from Annie.
1. Find your “friends.” If you start with a key piece—like these Watercolor Dots sheets—that have lots of pairing possibilities, you’ll be able to make seasonal switch-outs in a snap. For this summery bed, Annie used the printed sheets and matching shams with a lightweight matelassé and shams in sky blue.
2. Think layers. The transition to cooler fall weather means you’ll need to warm things up, but you don’t want to be bundled like a mummy on a surprisingly mild evening. Instead, opt for several lightweight layers that can be peeled back until you reach just the right level of coziness. Here Annie added a white fleece blanket for coziness, and a tailored white box spring cover for a streamlined look.
3. Get a feel for it. When the temperatures really drop, a tactile quality is almost as important to your bedding as the layers. Look for soft blankets, knit throws and shams, and duvets and quilts with nubby textures that feel great in the hand. To the crisp cotton sheets, Annie added a matching duvet, and contrasted them with a plush, sumptuous velvet quilt and shams.
