Dreamy Holiday Bedscapes with Winter Duvet Covers and Blankets for Winter

Saffron Marigold - Updated: September 16, 2023

Hot chocolate, gingerbread cookies, yule log slices—the holidays are filled with tasty treats! But beyond all the delicious pastries and sweets, you can celebrate this festive season with a bedroom decked out in winter duvet covers, warm blankets for winter, and other jubilant decor.

Saffron Marigold bedding is designed to be used year-round, so our ‘holiday’ offerings are not like what you’d expect from a bed-in-a-bag set. Instead, we suggest styling your Saffron Marigold bedding for the holidays. While most of our prints are season-neutral and can be used any time of year, others have decorative motifs that speak to the holidays.

We brainstormed a few bedscape ideas here to help you style your Saffron Marigold luxury duvet covers, quilted bedspreads, and warm blankets to prepare for the holidays. We’ll take classic decoration like boughs of holly and silver tinsel and replace them with stylized tabletop Christmas trees, garlands, and more.

Luxury duvet cover for a designer winter bedscape

If you want blankets for winter that’ll keep you warm and toasty, a duvet is your best bet. You’ll need a duvet cover to protect your duvet insert and to add another decorative element to your bedding.

White duvet cover for a bed blanketed in snow

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel with holiday color themes—sometimes simple is best. To reflect a snowy landscape, using Royal Mansour bedding is a no-brainer. It’s an elegant collection that transcends seasons, and it’s easily accessorized with colorful throw pillows or sheets.

Tropical duvet cover

Although our Tropical Garden duvet cover is overflowing with brilliant red hibiscus and stargazer lily blooms, we can’t help but feel it’s a great substitute for amaryllis and poinsettia -covered linens. The best part about Tropical Garden is it doesn’t have an expiration date like your typical seasonal bed linens.

Instead of a poinsettia tabletop Christmas tree that may look out of place during other seasons, try a capiz shell tree that easily blends in among your framed photographs, vases, and books after the holidays. A shell-adorned garland will also make your dreams of a tropical Christmas come to life.

Your favorite new bed linen may be one of our quilted sari bedspreads made out of soft, vintage saris if you’re not on the market for a winter duvet cover. These hand-quilted beauties have four layers of hand-loomed cotton between two layers of saris for that plush, cozy feel. Combine with a duvet for maximum coziness and dreamy holiday vibes.

Instead of a green garland or wreath, why not lean into the global style with strings of marigold instead? Create a vibrant display on the wall above your bed or hang a string or two across the top of your headboard for a more subtle look. Complement with a tabletop Christmas tree in vivid colors that are in line with your marigold garlands and new quilted sari bedspread.

A warm blanket to escape the winter freeze

Looking for a warm blanket for winter or one to layer with your duvet? Try a Jaipuri Razai quilt—it’s comfort made into a blanket. This traditional style blanket is a staple in many Indian households and can be used for extra warmth during sleep in the bedroom, naps on the sofa, and computer work in the home office.

Pictured here is Orange Blossom which is a print that’ll help you transition from summer to fall to winter seamlessly. It’s a Persian-inspired pattern featuring stylized florals in yellow, orange, purple, and green—perfect for a floral Christmas.

A botanical garland is the perfect partner for Orange Blossom, and the more colorful, the better. On the other hand, a classic white tabletop Christmas tree is a nod to the print’s vintage influences and helps ensure that the focus remains on your gorgeous bedding.

Holiday throw pillow for a festive accent

Some Christmas elements are set in stone, like reindeers and Santa Claus, while others are more open to interpretation. For the latter, stars, red florals, and folk prints—which we have in our repertoire—will elevate your holiday bedscape. We recommend these throw cushion covers to complete your winter bedding set.

Christmas flower arrangements

Instead of a tabletop tree, you might prefer other Christmas tabletop decor for your nightstands. Floral arrangements in ‘wintery’ colors like purples, blues, white, and your classic red liven up a bedscape. Yes, the area around your bed counts, too!

Some questions pop up time and again about winter bedding. We’re happy to answer them.

What is the warmest duvet cover material?

Flannel, fleece, and microfiber are some of the warmest duvet cover materials, but they tend to trap heat instead of regulating warmth. Different cotton weaves, wool, and linen are better options if you get hot at night. Cotton is also best for year-round use.

How many blankets should be on a bed in winter?

Most people are fine with one or two blankets. A duvet or comforter should suffice, but a quilt or bedspread layered on top makes for an even more cozy (and stylish) bedscape. A top sheet may be necessary if you use a comforter and tend to sweat during sleep.

Which duvet inner is best for winter?

A down duvet inner is a popular choice for winter bedding, but other fills include wool, polyester, rayon, and cotton. Down inserts are rated by how insulated they are in tog or thermal overall grade. This number ranges from 1.5 tog to 15 tog, from coolest to warmest. Ideally, your duvet insert should be between 4.5 tog to 9 tog if you want to use it during spring and autumn. Duvets that can be used year-round come in detachable sets you can combine or separate, depending on the weather.

How can I make my bedroom cozy for winter?

In addition to cozy winter bedding, you can add fluffy rugs, matching curtains, soft pillows, and scented candles. Allow as much light as possible into your room or introduce new lamps, string lights, and accent lights to make up for the short winter days.
