Rust, terracotta, ochre, and bronze are just a few of the rich and cozy colors we expect to embody the best bedding sets for fall. But this year, the seasonal launches are skewing surprisingly cooler—from Parachute’s newly debuted slate blue to Brooklinen’s flecked navy flannel. Among the unexpected autumn hues, we’re also noting an influx of offbeat patterns and textures—dimpled waffle duvets and ripple-striped quilts mixed in with velvet and wool pillowcases. Below, discover our guide to the latest and greatest of our favorite brand’s freshly dropped collections worth a fall bedding overhaul.
Flowers for fall? Morrow is betting on it. Batik floral, which just launched today, September 16, is the brand’s first foray into block-printed patterns on linen. “My intention with this collection is to bring a new sense of depth with pieces that feel fresh but are also rooted in the same heirloom quality,” shares cofounder and creative director Stephanie Clearly—a sentiment to be achieved through layering up the vintage-inspired textiles with striped or textural coverlets in willow, a warm hazel, and neutral ecru. “Our new coverlets are meant to feel like they have been part of your home forever.”
For those who don’t run quite as hot—or those with incredibly drafty bedrooms—crisper autumn weather presents an opportunity to swaddle your bed (and your body) in soft flannel. Brooklinen’s new cooler flannel in fresh colorways is a happy medium for both scenarios, as it’s crafted to be more breathable without sacrificing coziness. We’re taking a cue from the brand and layering the green plaid duvet with the speckled blue sheet set.
It’s gingham galore at Coyuchi—we’ve been obsessed with everything from the classic check pattern to the patchwork version. For the latter, we love how both the Ashbury and Seascape are adorned with a neutral underside for easy styling, so all you have to do is fold over the corners for a clean look. Plus you can’t go wrong with any color from the new 300-thread-count percale sheets; they all look as if they were pulled directly from these top layers.
Our deputy editor, Julie Vadnal, has already swapped out her summer bedroom setup with Blu Dot’s Cascade Duvet Set in loden green, a part of the brand’s first bedding collection. But it isn’t the only textural offering—there’s also a rippled coverlet along with the Popple duvet set. And quilt stitching abounds. Linens aside, we’re also taken with Every. Single. Pillow. The contrast piping is a satisfying detail.
Forget what you know about traditional flannel sheets—woodsman-inspired plaids and dark colors—Serena & Lily just gave its own a luxurious, coastal update. Belvedere is a line of brushed cotton that’s borderline velvety for duvet covers, sheet sets, and pillow shams. We love the elegant combination of classic checks in a chambray blue and contrasting bordered edge.
The Citizenry’s fall drop is all about warming layers. We’d drape a cozy alpaca throw or grid-patterned gauzy quilt at the end of our bed, then complete the look with woven pillows clad in eclectic patterns. Our personal favorites include the dark denim–look Isidora, made in Uruguay, and the more colorful Verbena, with embroidered details that can take 10 days to stitch by hand.
Parachute’s most recent drop, slate blue, is an unexpected but refreshing fall hue inspired by the California coast. Less blue and more of a pale gray, the linen offering is an exclusive collaboration with Nordstrom. We’d go all in and bundle the duvet cover and sheets together for a monochromatic look.
