Fall is right around the corner, which means it’s almost time to break out the sweaters, stow away the air conditioner, and turn your bed into a dreamy haven. A lightweight comforter won’t cut it once the temperatures drop and the leaves begin to change. Come autumn, you’ll need a medley of sheets, shams, and throws to make your setup extra-cozy. Don’t worry—bedding brand Garnet Hill has you covered. 

Thanks to Garnet Hill’s new collection with Eileen Fisher, getting your bed ready for the colder months is a breeze. The line features a serene color palette, handcrafted details, and sustainable fibers like linen and organic cotton that easily transition from season to season. Whether you go for totally cohesive linens or mix and match various styles, Eileen Fisher and Garnet Hill’s collaboration ensures the result will exude an effortless elegance.

Looking forward to hibernating in bed every chance you get this fall? Follow the steps below to create the perfect layered look.

Step One: Welcome a Worn-In Feel

We love a set of crisp, white sheets as much as the next person, but a colorful base will add extra depth. For a pair that teeters between subtle and statement, choose a soothing granite or beige hue. When it comes to creating a welcoming, mellow vibe, it’s all about focusing on relaxed fabrics. Tumbled percale sheets, for example, are laid-back without appearing sloppy.

Step Two: Add a Cozy Blanket

Very few things scream fall quite like a stack of blankets. With options in just about every color, fabric, and material available, finding the right one can be difficult. Our suggestion: a white waffle-weave style that will up your bed’s cozy factor and make your colorful sheets stand out.

Step Three: Pile on the Pattern

Want to soften the stark contrast of your blanket and sheets? Add a pattern. A coverlet with subtle, slim stripes will anchor the rest of your layers. Show off your bed’s color story by folding the textile down about a third of the bed’s length. 

Step Four: Introduce a Pop of Color

While we’re drawn to light, airy color schemes in summer, fall is all about deep, moody shades. Think: charcoal pillow shams and a matching quilt—the set’s textured material keeps it from feeling too severe. Fold the blanket at the foot of your bed so it’s on hand for chillier nights.

Step Five: Toss on One Last Layer

Consider a casual throw the cherry on top of your bedding sundae. Not only does it add a warm finishing touch to your bed, but it also allows you to get comfortable or take a Sunday afternoon nap without unmaking your entire spread. Sprawl this striped number across the bed and let the sweet dreams commence.
