The Mid-Autumn Festival is a time to celebrate the harvest and spend time with family and loved ones. It's also a great opportunity to upgrade your bedding for the cooler season! A good duvet inserts are key to staying warm and cozy through the colder months of the year. So, as the days get shorter and the nights get cooler, here's what you need to buy to stay comfortable in bed.
What Mid-Autumn Festival Represents
The Mid-Autumn Festival is a time to celebrate the harvest and give thanks for a bountiful year. Families typically spend this time together and enjoy feasts of traditional foods, and across Asia indulge in delicate mooncakes. Lanterns are also lit and floated on rivers, and children can often be seen carrying them through the streets in parades. It's a festive and happy time of year and is the best opportunity to treat yourself to new warmer bedding.
Cold Nights Call For Duvet Inserts
As the temperature starts to drop, it's time to start thinking about adding a duvet insert for your bed. Duvet inserts are a great way to add a subtle extra layer of warmth to your bedding. They can be used alone or layered with other blankets and quilts for added warmth at night. When choosing a duvet insert, it's important to consider the climate you live in. For example, if you live in a colder climate, you'll want to choose an insert that is made of a thicker and warmer material. But if you live in a warmer climate, you may want to choose an insert that is made of a lighter material, just to keep snug as the temperature drops slightly.
We currently have a range of duvet inserts available online just in time for this special time of year, including our versatile bamboo charcoal duvet insert. Ideal for all seasons, this particular duvet insert combines bamboo with charcoal fiber, also known as black diamond in Japan, since it is one of the most multi-purpose textiles on the market. Antibacterial and antimicrobial, by introducing this fabric to your bedroom, you can prevent the growth of bacteria and enjoy a cool and comfortable night’s sleep.
Adding Warmth Through Velvet Blankets
In addition to duvet inserts, another great way to add warmth and coziness to your bed is with a velvet blanket. If you always feel cold at night, just add an additional layer on top of your comforter. Soft and smooth as clouds, these blankets can help you feel calm and relaxed during cooler seasons. When choosing a velvet blanket, it's important to consider the climate you live in. For example, if you live in a colder climate, you may want to choose a blanket that is made of a much thicker and warmer material. Explore our online collection of Velvet Winter Blanket. Our blankets replicate the luster shine and soft texture of cashmere, ideal for those chilly nights.
Colors That Reflect Fall & Promote Relaxation
As we transition from summer to fall, it's also a good time to change up the colors in your bedding. Warmer and earthier tones such as deep reds, oranges, and yellows reflect the changing leaves outside and can help promote relaxation. If you're someone who struggles with anxiety or insomnia, these colors can also be helpful in promoting a sense of calm. When choosing new bedding, it's important to consider the colors that you find most relaxing and soothing. Just take our forest inspired Hilda Floral Tencel Lyocell comforter, for instance. Or why not introduce earthy tones with our dusty green fitted sheet set.
