If you recall, we have this ongoing partnership with Spoonflower where every season we switch out Jasper’s room with new bedding (here’s our spring/summer). I’ve been looking forward to this since January when we first discussed the project because I love the idea of transformation and marking the turning of each season with something visual. I also love the idea that bedding can totally change the vibe of a whole room. I was initially worried about how much it could really change considering he has this huge yellow bed–really how much can you do? Turns out a lot! Let’s dive into the fall bedding refresh.
For fall, I wanted to try out a boy’s room and a girl’s room again, you know, for the girl I don’t have. I really wanted to tap into the autumn vibes with some colors of the season–those rusty reds, burnt oranges, bright yellows–without making it scream “Hi, my name is fall”. Of course, I heavily considered a Halloween theme, but I wanted to get a bit more mileage out of it and have it last the whole season. Nevermind that I literally spent hours looking at every single Halloween pattern on their site (you can see everything I was looking at here).
Boy’s room fall bedding refresh
I found this really pretty traditional hunting scene by PonyMacaroni and loved it for the boy’s room. After I got married and moved to Copenhagen where Paul lived, we took a little outing to Jægersborg Dyrehave, the site of the royal hunting lodge (or formerly hunting lodge), and it was so magical. There were SO many deer with huge horns everywhere. Perhaps it wasn’t the smartest time to go because they were in heat, but we went out sundown and I remember this beautiful golden light, much like the golden color of Jasper’s bed. We also later did this photoshoot for Kinfolk in the same spot for an Easter picnic with friends, which was so so fun.
The colors in this hunting scene were perfect with the yellow. It brought out a pretty primary color scheme of blues, reds, and then some greens and of course, the yellow. I loved the idea of adding in that deep hunting green and some browns to capture the change of the season. I used it for the curtains and in some pillows.
When I figured out I was going equestrian, I did a deep dive into more equestrian and found some sweet patterns to go with the main pattern like a horses bit on repeat on green, smaller horses in that lovely equestrian pants color, leather bridle, and even some hilarious jockeys that invoked a fun discussion between me and Jasper–ha! He was very confused. Lastly, I wanted to ground everything in with a great fall plaid so I brought in that rust red and I added in a green plaid onto the bench by the window.
Now, for the grand finale. When you are working with a company that does sheets, pillows, duvet covers AND fabric, you ALSO make MATCHING PJssssssssssss (said in an Oprah voice). I just had to do it! I used this cute pattern, and Casey from our team used their Organic Cotton Knit option to make complete magic. CAN YOU EVEN?! Honestly, that Organic Cotton Knit is such a dream. It’s soft and cozy–exactly what you want to be sleeping in.
I could post pics all day long of my boys–somebody stop me quick!
Fall bedding refresh for a girl’s room
Now, onto my imaginary daughter’s room. This is where I wanted to experiment with a one pattern design. Have you seen those traditional rooms where they do one pattern EVERYWHERE?! I’m also thinking back to Chloe Sevigny’s East Village apartment bedroom where the wallpaper is on the ceiling, walls, bed, etc. I didn’t go as nuts, but you better believe I wanted to. I loved Danika Herrick’s thistle and star pattern, which felt Fall Folk to me, which I just capitalized because I want Fall Folk have a moment.
The colors have have that rust red, warm mustard, and olive green that paired nicely with the yellow bed. It felt perfect for fall. I used it on the duvet cover, sheets, pillows, curtains, wallpaper, bench but then threw in some woven solid pillows and simple plaids into the bed to add in some variety.
Now, much like the magic of the boys pj, I wanted something to match the room–because I’m extra that way. I found the loveliest vintage Laura Ashley pattern and Casey used the Organic Cotton Knit once again to turn into the prettiest nightgown. I love it SO much! Note–I would size down. It’s a tad too big on me, but it’s for sleeping so it’s great.
And here I am looking like a lady of the manor, which I always believed I should be ;).
Ok, that’s it for now. Let me know if you have any questions/comments in the comments below. And I’m also curious–do you switch out bedding for each season? I’m really liking this new tradition!
