If you’re looking for an excuse to give your bedroom a fall refresh, here’s your sign: Parachute is teaming up with designer Jake Arnold again for a second limited-edition collaboration. The 11-piece collection dropped today and includes exclusive patterns, colors, and designs to transform your bedroom into a dreamland. This time around, Arnold played heavily with tonal florals on bolsters and bedspreads that he calls “ultimately seasonless.” The palette also incorporates soothing shades of sage, olive, and cream with linen duvets, alpaca bouclé throws, and washed velvet pillows.
When it comes to setting the most serene bedroom scene, Arnold says there are two main directions you can take. “You can go minimalist and sleek or layered and dramatic,” he shares. For a pared-back look, he’ll opt for two pillows neatly tucked under the bedspread, with a single lumbar pillow to bring everything together. For a more layered style, he suggests letting the bedspread puddle on the floor, piling on a few accent pillows, and adding a textured throw at the end of the bed. And for storing all those extra accessories? An oversize woven basket tucked into the corner always does the trick.
Arnold also emphasizes the importance of lighting, recommending sconces and table lamps over harsh overhead bulbs (but if you have no choice, he says adding a dimmer is a must). And as for nightstands, he’s all about maximizing your storage. “I don’t understand when people don’t have at least one drawer to hide all of the things you don’t want people to see,” Arnold says. Wouldn’t you rather draw attention to your breezy botanical bedding instead?
