Our Sleep Guide: Spring Favorites
While we enjoy the coziness of the colder months we can’t help but love the longer days and pastel palette that comes with spring. Not only that but warmer days and a feeling of starting anew also comes this time of year. Which is why it is time to get your bedroom ready with our spring favorites that will keep you warm or cool, depending on whatever the weather has in store for you.
Before You Start, Spring Clean
While most of us feel ready to jump right into seasonally changing out our décor and bedding we should first make sure to take the opportunity for a good thorough spring cleaning. Giving your room a deep clean feel will give you the perfect canvas to start on your spring updates. As well as remove any excess dust, dirt and debris.
First thing first, tidy up and put away any of the winter décor and bedding you will no longer be needing. By getting rid of any clutter or excess items it makes the deep cleaning part a lot easier.
For a deep cleaning we suggest starting from the top and working to the bottom. By washing windows and dusting surfaces and getting any linens you’ll be using into the laundry. And ending with a thorough floor cleaning by vacuuming, sweeping and washing.
Now some of us are more ambitious than others. If you want to really up your spring cleaning game now would also be a good time to wash your pillows and clean your mattress, if you are feeling especially motivated.
Now that your room is ready and clean you can start putting your bedroom back together. As well as add your spring favorites into your bedding rotation.

Spring Favorites: It’s All About Layers
Spring might still seem so far off. However, preparing for the warmer weather does make it easier to cope with the lingering winter. It also means that preparing for spring sooner than later means you’ll surely have everything on hand when the weather does start to warm up.
We know spring weather has a tendency of being all over the board. You may have more sunshine and warmth during the day, but you still have chilly, damp nights. Making it necessary to have layers not only in your wardrobe but also for your bedding. Having a well layered bed makes it easy to adjust to your comfort needs, regardless of the weather.
Start With The Sheets
Good quality sheets are the staple that we think are worth investing in. Not only do your sheets touch your body directly, but they also are washed the most. Meaning you want high quality sheets that only feel better with time and wear.
You also want to make sure that whatever sheets you are investing into offer a feel that you prefer. While some sheets are crisp and heavy others offer a light and silky feel. And than there are some that are more in between, offering a solid yet soft and cozy feel. We know that some like to switch up the material of their sheets depending on the season, others like the same feel regardless of time of year. Well, luckily there is something for everybody and every season.
If you are looking for a crisp and heavier sheet set that only gets softer with time we love the Organic Suvin Cotton Sheets from Avocado. This luxury sheets offer a thicker yet comfy feel that gets softer with use. These sheets use extra long cotton fibers to ensure their not only very durable but also very silky. Offering one of the best cotton sheet sets available.
While if thinner and silky sheets are your favorite than you’ll love the feel of Tencel sheets. The Luxury Tencel sheet set from Nest Bedding make for a perfect pair of lighter yet super durable sheets that easily transition from spring to summer.
If you like sheets that aren’t super thick but still cut out the chill, than you will love the feel of Jersey Cotton sheets from Tuft & Needle. These sheets offer the coziness of flannel without being as heavy. The T&N Jersey Sheets are a favorite of ours anytime of year. Especially with their array of bright colors to make any room a cheery retreat.

Add A Cozy Quilt
When it comes to adding the layers for spring we like to start with a nice quilt over our sheets. Having a quilt that is the right thickness will help to keep you warm without being hot. It is ideal on those slightly warmer nights and doesn’t add a lot of bulk to your bed. A quilted blanket also adds a great pop of color and texture too.
Most quilts add a bit more personality to a room and are a great way to add layers that are unique. This is a fun way to not only add warmth but also integrate seasonal colors and style too. Now we know when you think of “quilt” you may think of a hand crafted item your grandmother made. We love those too, but the quilts we have in mind are a bit more modern and stylish. A few of our favorites include the following:
Have A Comforter On Standby
Spring may bring warmer weather, however there is still plenty of cool and downright cold nights during this time of year. Which is why sometimes a blanket or quilt doesn’t quite cut it when it comes to staying warm. Hence our recommendation for having a cozy comforter. Sometimes a comforter is great to replace your quilt and sometimes you may need with your quilt. Either way one that isn’t too heavy and still breathable is best.
We love comforters that add warmth without being super hot and heavy. We also love materials that are more breathable and naturally moisture wicking, like wool. Sometimes the idea of a comforter only feels necessary in the cold winter months. But we are sure that the comforters we have suggested are perfect additions on those cool and cold spring nights.
You Can Never Have Too Many Throws & Blankets
Whether it is to curl up with on the couch or add to your bed on a cool night we love throws. We see the only negative about having a variety of blankets is the storage they necessitate. But, similar to throw pillows they not only add color, texture and a quick seasonal change but also come in a variety of sizes and thicknesses to have the perfect level of warmth.
The great thing about throws and blankets is that they are more for individual use. Meaning that if you share a bed and the bedding you and your partner may not agree on whether or not it is warm or cool enough. Which is why having a throw blanket or two on hand can help you both get the perfect level of warmth why you sleep.
I personally sleep cooler and often times have an added throw blanket just over my side of the bed. This allows the cute throw at the end of the bed to get some actual use. And both of us are happy with level of comfort our bedding provides. It also gives me another excuse to add to my throw blanket collection.

Year Round Bedding Essentials
While we may change a few things out seasonally, including our bedding, there are other things in our bedroom that are essentials. Meaning they aren’t something we change out, but use every day of the year, regardless of season. Which is why we want to make sure that before you focus too much on the fun spring favorites that you have the best bedroom essentials.
