5 Essential Bedding Layers for Your Fall Bed

The most reliable feature of fall: unreliable fluctuations in temperature. Our naturally breathable 100% organic cotton bedding will help you take these changes in stride. We asked our team of design experts to share 5 of their favorite bedding layers for fall. Here’s what they say works wonders as the days get shorter, and how to find the best designs for you.

No. 1 Start with the Right Sheets

If there’s one layer you need on your bed, it’s the perfect set of sheets. We always recommend our uniquely soft Signature Sheets or naturally cooling Percale Sheets for your very first bedding upgrade. For fall, if you prefer a buttery, breathable cotton, try our iconic Signature fabric—it gets softer with every single wash. If you sleep warm despite cooler temperatures, choose our ultra-refined Percale fabric—it will stay cool all evening long.

No. 2 Pick Your Ideal Duvet Insert

Our temperature regulating duvet inserts come in three weights for your ideal sleep temperature. Thoughtfully designed with a unique baffle box construction, both our Down and Down Alternative fills stay in place year after year. Always cold? We recommend our Ultraweight option: it has the most fill and near-weightless warmth. Run hot? Our Lightweight option is the perfect choice for you. Somewhere in the middle? Our Midweight option is a great all-season alternative.

No. 3 Choose a Coordinating Duvet Cover 

The cover for your duvet insert not only sets the tone for the look of your bed—but it works with your duvet insert to optimize your experience, thanks to our naturally breathable fabrics. Choose a duvet cover in the same fabric as your bed sheets, but consider a darker shade or a bold pattern for interest. This will keep your bed looking (and feeling!) cohesive. While you can lay our duvet cover evenly across your bed, we suggest folding it at the foot of the bed every morning for optimal loft and fluffiness.

No. 4 Add a Bed Blanket or Quilt

A textural bed blanket or quilt is a versatile extra layer that every bed needs, especially in transitioning seasons. It’s the answer to unexpectedly warm nights by topping the bed instead of your duvet. And when the temperature drops, it works with your duvet as an extra layer. Drape it at the foot of your bed for added dimension, or layer it between your sheets and duvet on cooler nights.

No. 5  Don’t Forget Pillows

Available in three densities (Soft, Medium or Firm) and two fills (Down Chamber or Down Alternative), our pillows are expertly designed with you in mind. They’re made with a three-chamber construction that keeps its structure over time, giving you lasting, superior support season after season. Unsure how to style this final bedding layer? Start with textural Euro shams at the head, then layer in Standard sleeping pillows and a decorative pillow at the front.

Whether you stock up on all five bedding layers or start with a few of your favorites, all of these essentials are designed to bring you a better night’s sleep. Enjoy styling them in fresh ways throughout the season, and don’t forget to show us your new look by tagging #mybollandbranch on Instagram.
