cuddling up for fall

Last weekend was just amazing. It was a long weekend for us (yay!), and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. The temperatures brought that first true craving for fall; staying below 85 during the day and dipping into the 50s at night. We enjoyed crisp evening air,  open windows, beautiful blue skies, and fell asleep to the music of the crickets lull-a-bye.
With this kind of weather, it makes me want to decorate the house for the fall season ahead.. but we aren't quiiiiiite there yet. The first thing I like to do to prepare for fall is bring in those fluffy blankets, overstuffed pillows to make myself (and our guests) yearn to cuddle up in bed just a little longer on those cold mornings.
Here are a few deals I found for bedding that absolutely fits the bill for the fall/winter season. All these can be found RIGHT NOW for under $100 (all prices listed are for queen sizes).



First on our list is this beautiful bedding set from Target. With it's traditional floral in warm earth colors it just yearns for someone to cuddle up in with a cup of cocoa and a good book. Don't you think so?
Target: Fieldcrest Duvet set  in Rust $99.99


At first glance, I wasn't in love with this set, I admit. But the more I've looked at it the more I just love it! It's contemporary style paired with fun and whimsy squigglies make for a wonderful solution to winter bedding. I love that you can use this in a child's room or in a guest bedroom. Dress it up or down and you can't beat the price at only $39.99.. less for a twin bed.
Ikea 39.99

Doesn't this set just scream winter to you? Yes, I realize it's bamboo leaves, but to me it looks like birch trees in the snow on a cold winter afternoon. This set could easily pass you through from Fall to Spring, and hey, that just makes life easier. Simple, classic lines with a contemporary feel. Love.
overstock bamboo smoke $50.99

Who doesn't like Pottery Barn? I've never heard anyone say they didn't like their stuff. And who could resist this bedding set (on sale now!)? Classic bedding in creams, yellows, and soft brown. Dress it for fall with some cozy brown throws, add a splash of cranberry red for winter. This set could easily used year round too.
Pottery Barn Roman Stipe $70.99


This set took me a minute to like. At first I thought it looked too masculine, but cold is masculine, so why hide it?. The geometric shape reminded me of twigs, and twigs remind me of bare trees. Fall, Winter. Ahhh. The perfect solution for a boys room or a guest bedroom. Pair it with some leather furniture (because what's more masculine than wood and leather?), make it country-cozy or even dress it up with a cuddly chenille throw for some added softness.
West Elm pyramid duvet cover $99.00


And lastly, this fun geometric set from Walmart. Priced just right at only $35.99 could really spring a room into fall. I love the spice color, and even though it's very geometric, paired with the traditional furniture and accessories, it really brings the bedding into a traditional home for a more updated look.
(I'm sorry for the horrible picture, there is only one size picture to use, so I had to blow it up for you too see.)
Walmart Divatex Diamond Spice $35.99


So what do you think? Any you are just dying to have (my favorite is the Pottery Barn stripe, it's just so dang versitile!) Have you found any I should include? What are your thoughts on making the rooms in your house reflect the seasons?

  2. My pick would be the bamboo smoke. Nothing feels richer than nice bedding. We splurged and bought a really nice, fluffy down-filled comforter 15 years ago and it is still in perfect condition. All I have to do is have it dry cleaned every so often and find pretty duvet covers for it.
