Something that will take your fall/winter bed to the next level whilst you read a good book with a cup of hot cocoa and bing watch a whole series on Netflix is our Belgian linen sheets.
I know what you’re thinking – linen in the winter?! We all know that linen sheets keep you cooler in the summer, but they are also great at keeping you warm in the winter! They’re just luxurious and versatile like that. Another setback people think of when they think of linen sheets is the upkeep.
Well, when it comes to our Belgian linens, they only get better the more they are used. The fibers become stronger, softer, and wrinkle less, and they will last you 8 – 10 years! They are surprisingly simple to clean too. Throw them into the washer on a gentle cycle with medium temperature water. Then dry for 20 minutes and let them do the rest of the drying outside the machine. Clean and no wrinkles!

After a long, grueling day at the office, there is no better sight than that of a well-dressed bed ready to be climbed into. This picture is never complete unless you’ve found the perfect pillows to add the finishing touch to this moment. This simple accessory has the power to personalize your space while adding all of the visual warmth of a wood burning stove in the fall. But just how do you pick the perfect ensemble of pillows?
Start with a neutral base that feels effortless and relaxing, complement with an accent of pattern or color to add a little spice to your bedroom. Pillows are a great way to add a pop of color and when the season changes, so can your pillows!
We love to layer. Using your sleeping pillows as a base, layer largest pillows in back and scale down in the front. Just the size differences alone can add interest in shape and texture. There is also some magic behind odd numbers. They seem to be more eye-catching and visually comfortable to even the untrained eye.
A lumbar pillow can ease your worried mind if you are unsure about picking several pillows to make an arrangement. A large lumbar can hold its own by spanning across the pillows behind. Try using colors that bring a sense of cohesiveness to your space and tie together several elements of your bedroom. A large lumbar is also perfect for nestling into while reading that novel you’ve read three times over and can’t seem to get enough of.
Keep it simple. Your bedroom should be the place you go to get away, so keeping your pillow arrangement simple can make a large impact. Fine fabrics, plush linens, and embroidery details can make all the difference.

This elegant accent piece is perfect for your home this season and just as cozy as your favorite sweater.
Drape one over the end of your bed or the arm of a sofa to add a touch of warmth to the room. You’ll love wrapping up in this soft textured knit while enjoying a cup of cider and unwinding in front of the fireplace. Fall really has all the good stuff, doesn’t it?
MATCHING Symmetry in a room creates a feeling of order and restfulness. Choose matching nightstands to bring in that touch of simplicity and sophistication, especially if your bed is a statement piece. The nightstands become the supporting cast and allow the bed to be the star.
MISMATCHING If you feel that your room is craving some interest, be bold and try two different nightstands. Mixing it up adds that inventive, eclectic feel to a space. Try to choose nightstands with similar features, like color or shape, so that the pieces still relate. For instance, an ivory lacquered single-drawer pieces for her and a linen three-drawer chest for him.
But wait, what about lamps?! Well call me old-fashioned, but generally I prefer a pair of matching lamps. It just feels smart and purposeful. However, I always appreciate a good exception and sometimes selecting two different lamps can be an unexpected twist. If you decide to be daring and mix up your lamps, make sure to pay attention to the relationship between the heights, shade shapes, finishes, and styles.
