There’s no doubt we love sinking into good, quality bedding. If you follow along on Snapchat, you may have witnessed Piper’s appreciation for lounging in bed, too. When you’re spending a third of your life in bed(!) it needs to be a place you can relax, feel comfortable, and get a good nights sleep. After some interest from you guys, we decided to pull together a list of our favorite resources to shop for quality bedding – including linen, cotton, and even layering options for your bed! We’ve searched high and low for the coziest, most comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and accessible bedding.
- Layer, layer, layer! This makes a bed look and feel cozy. Remember, it’s easier to layer monochromatically (white on white, gray on gray, etc).
- When in doubt, go with white! White bedding always looks clean and classic. Plus, it’s easy to add color with pillows and throws… it’s definitely the most versatile color when it comes to textiles.
- Make it comfy. YOU have to sleep here- be sure the material is one you really really like.
- Speaking of material, stick with natural fibers (linen, cotton, etc).
- Invest in quality bedding that will last. This is self explanatory.
- Take seasons into consideration. On warmer nights, fold your duvet at the foot of the bed. Swap out your duvet for a lightweight coverlet during summer months. Contrarily, splurge on down in the winter.
- Use your space wisely. If you need additional storage and plan to slide items under your bed, buy a bedskirt! Keep your things stored under the bed organized and neatly out of sight.
- Consider texture. Texture adds interest to white bedding- it’s the easiest way to create a layered, sophisticated look.
- Think about your lifestyle…do wrinkles bother you? Is your personal style pretty casual? Linen naturally wrinkles and if you’re someone who hates making the bed and doesn’t want to mess with ironing, this is a great option. Just do your research!
- Consider cleaning. You have to wash your bedding often, make sure it’s easy for you to upkeep. Some bedding requires dry cleaning or is too bulky to fit in an average washing machine.
Etsy // An unexpected, but great place to begin shopping for bedding! We are currently coveting linen bedding and Etsy has some of our favorite shops, including Bea Linen, Linen Space, So Linen and Linen Tales In Bed (remember this post?).
Brooklinen // Has the best variety! They have SO many amazing options for all things bedding- sheeting, duvets, pillows, shams, bedskirts, coverlets, etc.
Peacock Alley // For perfect basics. I’m a fan of their subtle details… like die cut detail on a bed sheet, or contrast piped embroidery along the side of a pillowcase.
Coyuchi // They have the best neutrals, with subtle patterns and details.
Rough Linen // For naturally chic and (intentional) disheveled bedding.
Loop // For organic bedding.
Boll & Branch // They have very nice tailored options that look and feel very put together and sophisticated.
Matteo // Tons of options for layering with a variety of textures (as described above).
Although, you can do no wrong with speciality stores… sometimes it’s just easier to find bedding at a big box retailer. The following are some of our go-to sources for quick and affordable bedding…
Big Box Stores:
Burke Decor // We specifically love this linen set from Pine Cone Hill.
Bloomingdales // Oake bedding is one of our favorites from Bloomingdales.
Restoration Hardware // Timeless classics…and lots of neutral color choices!
Target // Is a great place to find budget-friendly bedding as well as decent sheeting. This Egyptian Cotten Sheet Set by Fieldcrest is one of the higher end brands they carry, but are well worth the cost once you climb into them!
Hopefully you now feel well prepared and ready to update your bedding when the time comes (or take a nap…we promise we won’t tell). By keeping these simple tips in mind and following our resource guide, we can almost assure you will find great bedding that meets your needs and helps you sleep well every night!
