I’m completely smitten by the layered bed trend. It feels so warm and cozy and is perfect for the fall and winter seasons. The bedroom above pairs a variety of patterns in soft earth tones. Just lovely!
Below, the pastel tones prove that layering works in spring and summer, too. If you don’t trust yourself to mix patterns, using a monochromatic approach might be the way to go. Everything blends so well in this pale blue and white bedroom.
The walls in an industrial style bedroom are kept plain, allowing the mixed textiles to take center stage.
Another approach to try if you’re a little shy when mixing patterns and colors, is to keep your comforter and blankets in solid, similar colors. You can introduce bolder patterns and colors through the use of pillows.
A French country bedroom features layers of linen pillows and bedding. The look is subtle and elegant.
A cozy under-the-eaves bedroom enjoys a layered look in the same color family. Light brown walls add to the warmth of the space.
Designer Sarah Richardson enjoys working with color, as evidenced here in one of her bedrooms. She pairs a white and yellow quilt with striped and floral pillows, while the curtains sport a geometric pattern.
This rustic bedroom features my idea of a layered bed. A big puffy comforter folded on top of a beautiful quilt. During the winter months, I like my bedroom to be cold with plenty of blankets to keep me warm. I have a weighted blanket which is equivalent to having several blankets.
Here’s another bright and cheery bedroom that proves you can have a layered bed during spring and summer.
So I did manage to find out that the first white sale was started in 1878 by famed Philadelphia department store owner, John Wanamaker. White bed linens were put on sale during the month of January to boost post-Christmas sales. Today, the sales aren’t limited to white bedding only, and often include other household items.
I found lots of pretty quilts, comforters, and sheets – most of which are currently on sale. It’s always fun to buy new bedding, even if it’s just a new set of sheets. Click on any of the images for sources on where to buy.
