fall-bedding-ohidesignblog2We are beginning to bring out the chunkier throws (anyone else hate the word “chunky”?), warmer blankets and flannel sheets this week in preparation for Fall/Winter. There’s nothing I love more about New England than experiencing the Fall – you can find me in my spare time on the sofa, cuddled up with a cozy blanket, sipping coffee with a good book in hand. I wanted to share 3 tips with you when transitioning your bedding during the colder months and have styled our guest bed 2 different ways.
Guest Room via Oh, I Design Blog1. Mixing Textures – adding more texture is definitely my first recommendation. By integrating texture through various blankets, sheets and duvets/comforters/quilts, you are adding more depth and warmth to your room.  It makes the bed feel more “full” and adds a touch of softness. I love this Luxe Velvet Quilt and the Flannel Sheets from Garnet Hill!Guest Room via Oh, I Design Blog2. Layering – Layering is similar to adding texture, but by layering different textures, patterns and deep colors, you will get the full cozy look. This also includes layering more pillows. I typically have about 5 pillows on our bed – 2 for sleeping on, 2 shams and one decorative or a couple decorative.img_5953_13. Colors/Patterns – I love incorporating deeper colors for the Fall/Winter, like navy or emerald green. But to keep the transition easy, you could just layer a couple of darker tones on top of your existing bedding through an extra blanket/throw or accent pillows. I love to bring in plaid for the Fall and this Faribault Plaid Throw is my favorite way to bring in pattern.img_5955_1 shopping list:

one – luxe velvet quilt  // two – silk hand-loomed pillow // three – my bucket list book // four – windowpane linen everyday napkins // five – faribault buffalo check throw// six – textured mug // seven – deco handle tray // eight – flannel sheets // nine  – faribault thermal weave wool blanket


I want to write for ohidesign

How are you doing?

I have an idea for an article titled ‘5 Smart Decorating Tips To Give Your Bed Room A New Look!’ for your website. I think your audience would love to read it.

Would you be willing to take a look at it?

If not, I can write on any other topic you require.

If you still have your summer bedding, it’s a good idea to make the transition soon! You’ll not only want to change up the color scheme, but you’ll also want to choose blankets and sheets that are much warmer. After all, the nights have certainly gotten chilly!
