With the change in seasons comes the perfect excuse for a change in décor. Switching up your bedding not only refreshes your space, but can also refresh your state of mind!
But, let’s be honest, dressing your bed for the changing seasons can be as confusing as dressing yourself! Is it time to pack away the heavy winter pieces? How many layers is enough? And while the obvious solution when it comes to fashion is investing in trans-seasonal clothing – did you know there is one solution just as easy (and fashionable!) for your bed?
Enter – coverlets! The perfect investment for your trans-seasonal bedroom, and the one secret for styling your bed for spring.
What is a coverlet?
A coverlet is a top layer dressing for your bed, lighter than a quilt and longer than a blanket. Classically designed as a luxe, decorative layer to sit on top of your quilt cover, coverlets today are not only beautiful, but incredibly functional.
Why are coverlets so perfect for in-between seasons?
Think of a coverlet as an investment in your bedroom’s overall aesthetic and functionality.
For the colder nights, you can layer up – a coverlet is perfect for a little extra warmth. And when the mercury starts to climb, it’s much easier to adjust when you have multiple layers to play with.
For hot sleepers (or on hot nights), a coverlet is perfect when paired with a flat sheet.
Our secret: “Swap quilts for coverlets during the warmer months. Coverlets are much lighter than quilts, whilst still giving the look and feel of a complete bedding suite,” says Sharon Bridgman, Head of Product at Canningvale.
So, not only is your coverlet perfect as the seasons begin to switch, it’s an investment that will carry you through summer, winter and everything in between.
How to style your coverlet
There are a myriad ways to style your coverlet!
Our secret: “Coverlets are a great way to add texture to the bedroom and variety is the name of the game here. There is no ‘one way’ to style a coverlet, which makes it easy to find one (or two, or three!) to suit your bedroom’s aesthetic, whether it’s coastal chic or contemporary-cool,” says Shelley Serong, Senior Product Designer & Stylist at Canningvale.
Coverlets can be draped, folded or layered to give extra depth to your bed.
As our Product Development Manager, Carolyn Cotterell, puts it “Coverlets are a versatile, stylish, luxurious layering piece to drape over your bed as a finishing touch in long-lasting fabrics.”
