Autumn Refresh: The Best Bedding

Autumn Refresh: Bedding Makeover | Frock Files

Our bed has been an embarrassing hodge podge of college-era comforters, hole-y quilts, and mismatched pillowcases for far too long. I’ve always justified it by telling myself that no one else spends time in our bedroom anyway, but this Autumn Refresh challenge has given me the perfect excuse to finally give our bedding a facelift.

People who visit usually use the word “cozy” when they talk about our home. I have an affinity for soft things–both of our couches are cloud-like in their ability to envelop even the tallest of our friends; we have fluffy throws everywhere; I live in cashmere in the wintertime; Kona (need I say more?). The bedding was no exception.

My Favorite Bedding Picks

Once I started choosing the elements, I began to understand why it’s really taken me this long to get my act together when it comes to bedding: there are lots of pieces to coordinate! Here’s what I ended up with, and I have to say, I’m thrilled with every piece.

Sheets: While our blankets were mismatched, we’ve always had really nice sheets. A couple of years ago, Lindsey discovered these Beech sheets at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and she insisted that I buy a set immediately. Luckily, I listened. They’re the softest, most luxurious feeling sheets I’ve ever owned–even better than the high thread count Egyptian cotton ones I used to have. A head’s up that these say sateen and they appear shiny at first, but they lose that shiny look after the first wash–thank goodness.

Blanket: When Kim of DLK told me that she would be importing her favorite cotton sweater throws from Australia, I knew that it would be love at first sight. I was right. This throw was a bit of a splurge, but I just love the character it brings to our bedroom. It’s also incredibly soft. As you can see, Kona loves it too. In fact, we may fight over it a little. What can I say? She has good taste.

Duvet Insert and Duvet Cover: For awhile, I’ve been waking up feeling really hot in the middle of the night, but all that changed once we got this duvet insert and cover. The duvet insert is filled with down alternative, but it’s not overly filled, which makes it breathable so that I’m not waking up sweating at 3am. The duvet cover is made of super soft Egyptian cotton that makes climbing into bed feel like a religious experience. Bonus: both were steals on Amazon.

It should be noted that our bed started off feeling pretty great, despite our eclectic bedding, because we invested in a Tempur-Pedic awhile back. My god, we love that mattress. In the dead of winter, we layer on an electric blanket to warm the mattress before we climb in, which makes the Tempur-Pedic a big, dreamy marshmallow. Mmm…

    • Thank you, Kim! That’s high praise coming from one of the chicest decorators I know. We’re loving the blanket and the way it fits into our bedroom decor. xo

  4. I’m the hugest fan of anything cozy, though, I find this to be very sleek and stylish!

    • Thank you! I think you hit the nail on the head–I want it to be sleek but comfortable. Finding that balance has been difficult, so I appreciate that you took notice!

  5. I would literally ever get out of that bed…so comfortable yet crisp, a hard look to pull -off!
