Punxsutawney Phil, the country’s most famous groundhog, didn’t see his shadow this year. So I guess we can go ahead and box up those winter coats and grab our favorite sandals, right? Well, not so much. No offense to the furry Nostradamus but rarely does Phil accurately predict the coming of the season. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t start thinking about transitioning our bedding to something more spring oriented, because regardless of whether Phil is right or wrong, spring will be here soon enough.
Whether you live in a colder climate or it’s 65 year-round, changing up bedding offers a wide spectrum of benefits that can help you start off the season in the right way–and every day after. Switching to lighter, more breathable fabrics, soft blankets instead of heavy comforters or just the simple act of using the right colors, tones and patterns can instantly transform your winter sanctuary into a springtime retreat.
At Schweitzer Linen, turning over from season to season is virtually effortless and incredibly affordable. Choose from a wide variety of luxurious fabrics, made for almost fifty years using the same exquisite craftsmanship. Then find the colors and style that helps you achieve the very best you. With hundreds of original designs inspired by places from all over finding a decor that makes you feel more rested, more confident and happier is easier than ever.
Here are some easy ways to refresh bedding for the new season and start improving your everyday life.
THE FABRICS OF SPRING
When temperatures start to rise and those soft breezes begin to blow in, you want to make sure you are maximizing your comfort level with lighter sheets that won’t turn your bed into a springtime sauna.
If you’ve been using flannel sheets, those should be the first to go. Replace that with something lighter and more breathable like crisp linen bedding. Not only will it feel lighter and cooler on skin but linen is naturally moisture wicking so you’ll always feel snug and dry, never soaked. You can use this all spring and right through summer. Just change the decor up with some shams once in a while when you want to shake things up.
Other great springtime fabrics to consider for your sheets are soft Egyptian cotton in percale or sateen. Schweitzer offers these in any thread count you please and like everything created by them, they are made with the utmost precision and care to serve you well and deliver the best night’s sleep for many years to come.
With so many incredible sets and styles to explore and delight in, it’s hard to pick just one–so don’t. Schweitzer Linen is one of the only brands to offer products of such superior quality at such an affordable price, so you can grab a few sets and change it up whenever you’re in the mood.

SPRING BY YOUR DESIGN
There’s a reason why certain colors are used during certain seasons. It’s not just the whimsy of the fashion runways. It’s scientifically proven that some colors affect the mood in certain ways. In fact, studies show that if we surround ourselves with the right colors, patterns and environment, we are far more likely to be happier, more confident and more optimistic people. Who doesn’t want that?
