Getting your bed ready for the fall.

When cooler weather approaches it is a perfect time to start thinking about swapping out some of the components of your bedding.

  • Many people have two completely different looking bed ensembles that they use throughout the year.

    • One for spring/summer, which often is light and airy and contains light pastel colors.
    • One for fall/winter ensemble which often contains more jewel tones.
    • Either way, this is good time to inspect your bedding’s condition. Consider laundering it to freshen it up. Insure the old bedding is laundered before putting it into storage.

  • Some use a coverlet during the summer rather than a down comforter.
    • Some use both a coverlet and down comforter.
    • This is a great look, however, it does require a little more effort to remove the coverlet and replace it with the duvet and down comforter each night.
