As the temperatures begin to drop and the leaves transform into shades of orange, red and gold, there is no better time to sink into your cozy bed and indulge in a great book. In this post, we’re sharing our favorite bedding layers to consider adding to your sleep space this season, plus some of our favorite books that we think go perfectly with each one!
Oversized pillows, such as euro and lumbar pillows, are a great way to add dimension and texture to your bed. Not only do they provide extra comfort, but their size and shape make them perfect for layering. By adding a euro pillow behind your traditional pillows or placing a lumbar pillow in front of them, you can create a cozy and stylish look.
One book you may consider pairing with your pillows is A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. This incredibly heartwarming novel will make you laugh, cry, and have you turning pages well into the night.
Ultra-Soft Blended Linen Sheets
Cotton-Linen blended sheets are a luxurious and understated choice for fall bedding. Not only are they super soft, lightweight, and breathable, but the perfect set can add a touch of elegance to your bedroom that you’ll look forward to curling up beneath all season long.
Merino Wool Duvet Insert
If you're looking for a warm and cozy option for the fall season, Merino wool comforters are a fantastic choice to consider. Made from the softest and finest wool, comforters and duvet inserts filled with Merino wool offer plenty of cozy insulation while remaining naturally breathable. What’s more, unlike synthetic alternatives, Merino wool naturally regulates temperature, making sure you don't overheat or get too cold during the night.
Pair yours with The Overstory by Richard Powers. This highly recommended book follows various characters whose lives are connected by trees, making it a perfect way for you to connect with nature while you’re snuggled up in your perfectly-layered bed.
Reversible Duvet Covers
A reversible duvet cover is a great bedding option ideal for all kinds of weather because you can easily switch it up to match your changing mood, style, and sleep needs throughout the year. What’s more, they are available in a range of responsive and natural materials, giving you the opportunity to create an oasis that meets your individual sleep preferences.
Pair your reversible duvet with any of the following best-sellers to round out your next great night of sleep:
- For horror or thrill seekers: try When Things Get Dark: Stories Inspired by Shirley Jackson.
- For romance enthusiasts: try Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë — A classic Gothic tale with a romantic twist, this bittersweet story is one that’s sure to land on your favorites list.
- For fantasy lovers: try the ever-popular Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling, The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, or The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
- For general fiction lovers: try 100 Years of the Best American Short Stories — We love that each story varies in length and topic, perfect for satisfying any type of mood or reading preference.
The classic softness of cotton paired with the lightness of a coverlet makes for the ideal combination as the temperatures begin to drop. Not only are they comfortable, but cotton coverlets are also breathable, ensuring a night restful sleep. Plus, they’re easy to layer on your bed year-round.
If you prefer a handmade, vintage feel, a cozy quilt will be your perfect fall choice for layering or using as a standalone blanket when you’re curled up on the couch. Pair yours with a book like The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This magical tale follows two young magicians as they compete in a mysterious and enchanting circus, which will match up perfectly with the coziness of your quilt.
For those who prefer even more comfort, a weighted blanket is a great option to consider. Not only can the right weighted blanket help reduce stress and anxiety, but it will also help you relax for a perfect evening spent reading.
Pair yours with a calming and insightful book like The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle or Spontaneous Happiness by Dr. Andrew Weil. Both options will help you find joy, learn how to live in the present moment, and find peace within yourself.
