Finding the Perfect Holiday Bedding

One of the real joys of crafting decorative schemes is adapting your home's decorations to match the seasons. Sure, you can put up a tree in the living room around the holidays, put a waving Santa in your front yard. But those are the obvious things to do. Think about the whole house, not just what the neighbors see through your front window.

One of the easiest ways to bring some charm and seasonal flair – no matter the season – to your home is by changing your bedding. Your bedroom can mirror the seasons outside and change through springtime florals, cooling summer prints, and festive winter flair. Our three part approach is here to help you transform your bed to be part of your holiday decorations. You'll be all snuggly and spirited in no time.

Start with the basics

If you're really looking for wintery sheets, look no further than flannel. Flannel sheets are the quickest way to take your bed from cold and boring to warm and cozy. Lands' End flannel sheets are made in Portugal by a family-owned mill, and they have developed their flannels to stand up to cold Scandinavian winter nights, so you can rest assured these sheets are plenty warm. Many of our flannels also feature holiday prints or embroidery if you want to up your holiday ante.

Lands' End also offers monogrammed bedding for all of our sheeting options. Monogramming and embroidery is a great way to make your sheets feel more personalized and create a cohesive and classic look for your décor. If you love how soft and warm our flannel sheets are, you'll love them even more with a festive embroidered design or with your initials.

Top it off

The sheeting on your bed is a great foundation for your new bedding, but no bed is complete without something warm and cozy on top. A down comforter is a good place to start – it's like a big and warm fluffy cloud for the top of your bed. Down is nature's best insulator, and it's sure to keep you warm and cozy all winter.

If the plain old down comforter isn't enough for you and your bedroom décor, you can always update it with a seasonal duvet cover. Duvet covers are an easy way to update your bedding, because they're so easy to change – they're like giant pillowcases, after all – and they come in all sorts of seasonal options. The cozy down comforter can stay the same, and you can have a wintery cover for winter, florals for spring, and a peaceful tropical print for summer.

If you're not a fan of down and duvets, you can always opt for a seasonal Christmas comforter. A beautiful quilt can be just as warm as a comforter, but retains more of a rustic and traditional appearance. You'll love our soft and warm quilts, and you're sure to find one that fits right in with your style.

Finishing touches

Pillows really make the bed, and it's hard to get a good night's sleep without a good pillow. Ornamental throw pillows will help set the scene on your holiday bed. Want to keep it classic? Go with geometric or abstract designs. Prefer a rustic look? Throw on some hand-hooked pillows featuring winter scenes and characters. Whatever your theme, the pillows can add those finishing touches that complete the picture.

What else can we do to top things off, you may wonder? How about a comfy fleece blanket? Having a fleece blanket on hand all the time is a good idea, but having one in the bedroom is especially handy for taking naps, reading a book or enjoying a mug of hot cocoa without unmaking the bed.

Your new winter bedding is all about you. Your personality and taste should come through, and provide you with a sanctuary. The holidays can be tough and stressful, and winter weather isn't everyone's favorite, so why not make yourself a little escape? You'll be glad you did.
