A Blanket To Cuddle Up With

Oooh, I don’t about where you are but here in Toronto, it cooled down here and fast!  After a searing and record-breaking summer, the mercury drop seemed instantaneous with the autumn equinox.  It’s taken some getting used to, I must admit.

I’m trying to embrace the coming cooler months, and now is the perfect time to cozy up the home, especially the bedroom, as I mentally and physically prepare for the annual semi-hibernation.  At least fall and winter are good seasons for bedding: luxurious throws, cozy quilts, the amazing textures of microfleece and Egyptian cotton sheets, and of course big puffy duvets in beautifully patterned covers.  A soft blanket to cuddle up with on a cold day is one of life’s simple pleasures, bringing us back to the cuddle blankets, plush toys and parental hugs of childhood.

So why not celebrate the changing seasons with some new sheets and blankets.  We spend enough time in bed (or at least here’s hoping!), why not shell out on something beautiful, cozy and comfortable?  Here are some designs that caught my eye this season:

Anthropologie’s Georgina Bedding

Anthropologie’s home line, especially bed linens always wins for luxurious femininity.  This plum colour is rich and warm, but not over powering in the room built for sleep and relaxation.  And I love the over the top ruffles.

For something just as sumptious but with a stronger, more masculine feel, Restoration Hardware has a stunning line of bed linens that are handmade in small batches by a California studio.

West Elm bedding

Both Calvin Klein Home and West Elm have beautiful bedding lines as well, especially if you’re looking for something stylish but understated.  I love Calkin Klein’s line for the Asian inspired colour scheme and patterns.  It feels like a perfect touch for a zen retreat.  West Elm’s line captures Americana with a twist for me.  Lovely!

Here’s hoping you get a day to sleep in, curled up under your favourite blanket, new or old! Happy Monday!
