Who doesn’t love the feeling of snuggling up under crisp new sheets? It’s one of those simple pleasures that’s easily achievable with a bedding makeover. Today I’ve rounded up some bedding inspiration for the cool fall and winter days ahead. Whether your tastes lean towards classic, feminine or a little off-the-wall there’s a bed for you.
Chevron prints have been trending heavy for months, and taking the place of the classic stripe in textiles, flooring and wallpaper. With all trends there comes a point where you get a little tired of looking at them. That’s why I’m really drawn to the looser interpretation of chevron on this bedding from West Elm, and you can never go wrong with white and black as far as I’m concerned.
Chevron may be the popular kid in the school yard, but stripes don’t have anything to worry about. Menswear-inspired striped-bedding is always classic and clean, and even though it often leans a little on the preppy side, it doesn’t need to be overly so with the right accessories. Throw pillows in eclectic prints can keep a stripey bed looking twenty-first century.
For an ultra-femme bedroom this waterfall ruffle duvet from Urban Outfitters is over-the-top girly. I couldn’t decide which I liked better, the purple or the grey, so I thought I would show you both. Is there such a thing as too many ruffles? Common consensus would say definitely, but I beg to differ.
I had a brief but excruciating foray into quilt making before my son was born. I made him a tiny quilt for his crib and the whole experience taught me that I am not cut out for quilting. Too much precision, too much sewing and too much cutting, so I will have to settle with letting others make my quilts for me. This quilt, handmade by Fred Shand for Anthropologie, is the stuff dreams are made of.

I love Thomas Paul’s quirky textile prints, and this octopus is no exception. It’s too bad as grown-ups we don’t get to have themed bedrooms anymore, this would be perfect in an under-the-sea themed room.
Feel like unleashing some creativity to help get you to sleep? How fun is this duvet cover that you can doodle on with washable markers? I love that it looks like a giant piece of lined paper. This would be fantastic in any juvenile bedroom.
I don’t know about you but now I’m ready to head back to bed, and it’s not even lunchtime yet.
Happy Friday everyone!
