With Spring here (or just around the corner–I can feel it!), it means there are a few areas of the home we’re ready to shed some layers or lighten up and bedding is a big one! I’ve talked about coverlets a lot before, which is already saying something (ha!) but they really are the perrrffect piece of bedding to transition with year round, and especially now as we transition from winter to spring.
I purchased this Matouk light blue, thick gauzy, stone-washed coverlet (comes in 3 other colors, too!) that feels like it’s been in the family for years (so, so good!) from Bloomingdale’s and not only is the color singing spring, but all the ways it can be styled make it completely practical, too. For instance:
1. If it’s still chilly where you are (ie if you’re anywhere close to me in freezing Idaho) maybe you are beckoning spring to come with colors but still need the warmth of a heavier duvet. Placing the coverlet on top of your existing duvet will instantly feel like all new bedding with minimal effort and make it look even more luxe, thick and dreamy!
2. And then let’s say one week, the weather starts teasing low 50s. Laying the coverlet across the bottom of your bed, allows easy access if you get chilly and need an extra layer, plus it looks so effortless and beautiful, too. Note: I love that the sizing of this coverlet (and all the bedding in Bloomingdale’s collection) is generous and luxurious. The king draped down just as a king size blanket should.
3. Now let’s say it’s full blown dreamy spring and the days are warm and the nights may get a little chilly. This is when you swap and make your thick, gauzy coverlet your main blanket and your duvet your backup! Tuck the coverlet around the whole mattress and place your folded duvet at the bottom of your bed. Are you seeing how this is the perfect system yet?
4. And the next thing you know, it’s summer and all you need is the light blanket.
We are loving the pop of light blue in our bedroom and wish we could gift everyone one of these perfect blankets. You can check out all of Bloomingdale’s luxury bedding line here–it’s one of those things that’s 100% worth spending a little more on (bedding and hardware!). The quality and feel is heavenly.
