Winter Bedding: We're Going Shopping!
As the cold settles in and temperatures drop, you’ll feel like cocooning and staying indoors. As home life becomes more and more important at this time of the year, so does winter bedding. That’s why we’re gathering some new ideas to make your bed a welcoming spot.
Simply by renewing your duvets and quilts and adding some nice, cozy blankets, the bedroom will become a sanctuary of peace where hibernating will become the most pleasurable activity. Shall we go shopping?
This is what winter bedding looks like
The cold is here! And with it comes that feeling of wanting to stay in bed all day and listen to the rain outside, right? For the scene to be perfect, you need winter bedding that’s warm and soft. Let’s take you through the upcoming trends so that you can tuck up in bed with style.
Ways to tuck up during winter
It doesn’t matter if you prefer to use only a fitted sheet and a duvet, or bedsheets and a comforter… Whatever the option, it’s all about finding comfortable, light, and warm materials.
Let’s start by dispelling the doubts – what’s the difference between a quilt, a comforter, and a duvet? We’ll explain:
- Quilts are not usually very thick and they’re mostly decorative. Their filling is less than 150 g/m2 thick and they’re used in combination with a bedsheet, which makes them more suitable for the warmer seasons of the year, such as spring or early autumn.
- Comforters usually have a quilted finish and the filling is about 250 g/m2 thick. They’re made of synthetic fibers or feathers, the latter being the most insulating from the cold. A comforter to match cotton sheets is a good idea for the colder seasons of the year.
- Duvets are great if you’re looking for a comfortable and versatile solution. The best thing is that you can play with various levels of thickness to create the ideal temperature. They can be made of feathers or synthetic fibers, and they range from 125 g/m2 to 500 g/m2. You can change it depending on the season.
The most beautiful winter bedding
Let’s find out everything you need to make your bed into the warm, cozy, and stylish place you deserve.
A chic complement
We love the way that overlapping blankets look on a bed. They look great when you combine the comforter with plaids or blankets and lots of fluffy cushions. It feels like you have a room just like the ones you see in the magazines.
This one from IKEA is knitted, one of this winter’s absolute trends and its pink color is amazing. Also, it’s perfect to put on the couch to watch TV.
This duck green velvet quilt is spectacular. The best thing is that it has two sides, one of them 100% cotton, and the other made of a super soft cotton and linen mixture. It’d be perfect with a white or nude bedding set, with block colors that can highlight it. This one is from Maisons du Monde.
A bohemian air
If you’re looking for a duvet cover for a bohemian bedroom with a vintage look, this one by La Redoute in pink nude, white, beige, and greyish violet can be a good option. It’s made of linen and cotton and its slightly wrinkled look with a non-top finish gives it that special touch you’re looking for.
Thanks to winter bedding, your nights will be cozier and the bedroom will look perfect. It’s one of the key accessories to achieve convey the look and feel you want.
The colors, materials, and the way you combine them will make all the difference. A stylish bedroom doesn’t have to be at odds with a feeling of warmth.
