For those of you who have Matelasse coverlets
I have ordered a Matelasse coverlet and shams for my bed. I am wondering do most folks fold theirs down at night and use something else to cover up with or do you use it along with the sheet. Also do you still use it in winter or is Matelasse mostly a warmer weather coverlet. In years past, I would buy nice bedding only to turn it down at night to keep it looking nice, and then have to use something else. Now I'm at the point that it seems like extra work and I just want to get under my covers and go to sleep. But I would like to know what others do.
Oh almost forgot to ask those of you who use it in winter months, do you layer a down comforter over top or put a comforter on and the Matelasse over that. Thank you.
