Re: Do you switch out your bed comforter, etc. for seasons, holidays?

I have a spring/summer quilt set in lighter colors and then a fall/winter set in darker colors.

 

I don't do all that holiday switching out.  It's too much work and would have to find a place to store it all.

Last spring I did buy some clearance winter Soft & Cozy blankets. Hopefully I'll remember to use them.  We both  love S&C.

No switching here. We use the same thing all year. All we do is add more blankets as it gets colder. Just added a blanket for warmth on top of sheets and under the comforter about a week ago.

Linens are a weakness for me.

 

Switch quilt, dust ruffle spring and fall, add or remove blankets.  Sometimes more often.

 

No holiday changes.

I like lighter for spring/summer and heavier for fall/ winter, the bed clothes have to be white and cream or pastels, no dark or vibrant colors in my bedroom.

Beween November and March I use a heavy down comforter in a duvet. In the warmer months, I use a matelesse blanket or quilts and I have several of these in rotation.

As reflected in the many responses to this post it is not the norm. That is why you have to take what the host say during a presentation with a grain of salt. They make it sound like everybody does this, and that plants a subliminal message to some viewers, I should start doing this, since everybody's doing it. No it is a selling strategy. They will say anything to make you spend.

Ditto!  Always ready to retire all holiday decor the day after Christmas. I always want my home clutter-free immediately after we celebrate. Each year, I donate more and put up less! It simply doesn't mean much to me the older I become.

 

Can't imagine seasonal decor in a beautiful bedroom, which isn't on display for family and friends. My husband would have never gone for such non-sense either!

Exact same situation at my house. A made up bed is a rare site in my home, unfortunately!
