Best autumn and winter bedding of 2021
Kindred Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set
The peachy colours of this affordable and quirky bedding from furn. make it a top choice for autumn. We love the design, which features those arty abstract face drawings you can see everywhere right now, making this easy to complement with accessories, like vases and prints.
The bedding is made of polycotton, so it should be soft without being too delicate. There are clear buttons for easy duvet removal and it can be machine washed, so it’s easy to care for. The duvet cover is reversible, allowing you to switch between peach blush and clay, so you can mix up your look whenever you fancy. The set is available in single, double, king and super king, each one coming with two matching pillow cases.

Agnes Organic Percale Duvet Cover
Anthropologie is renowned for its boho-chic, complex patterns and this striking duvet cover certainly doesn’t disappoint. If you’re into dark bedding, with busy, patch-work vibes, this set is likely to be a huge hit. Another top choice for autumn due to its apricot-hued flower design, you can buy this duvet cover for double and king sized beds. Matching pillow cases in both square and rectangular shapes are available from Anthropologie if you want to make a complete set.
Tufted White Geometric Bedding Set
While we might think of rich colours when trying to create a cosy feel, sometimes you can’t beat a crisp, white duvet set. This bedding has a geometric diamond tufted print so it’s chic while also being understated enough to easily slot into any room, whatever your décor and colour scheme. White duvet covers are perfect if you want to go wild with vibrant furnishings as you’ve got a blank canvas to play with. It’s available in single, double, king and super king and it comes with matching pillow cases so you can create a neat, elegant and fresh look.
Moira Embroidered Cross-Dyed Duvet Cover
We love this sage green coloured duvet set from Urban Outfitters with its delicate embroidered detail. Due to the geometric pattern – which almost resembles snowflakes – and cool colour, it gives off wintry vibes making it a top choice for the end of the year. The double duvet set comes with two pillow cases, and in order to reduce cardboard and plastic use, it comes in a reusable fabric bag which is bound to come in handy.

Teddy Duvet Set
If you like to be as snug as possible when you’re all tucked up, rather than cotton or linen which are known for their cooling qualities, you might want to opt for a soft teddy duvet set. Teddy fabric is almost fleece like, making it a toasty and comfortable choice.
Due to the block grey colour, you could match this duvet and pillow case set with a variety of colours and décor themes. Despite the warm nature, the material should be breathable too so you can enjoy a comfortable night’s rest. It’s machine washable and lightweight too, so very low-maintenance. You can also buy this duvet set in aubergine, charcoal, cream, mink, red, pink, and ochre, so there’s an option for every taste.
Emerald Velvet Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set
Calling all velvet lovers, this emerald velvet duvet set is quite the statement piece if you’re looking to add a touch of winter glamour to your bedroom. Despite its unique fabric, it can be machine washed, making it both special and easy to look after. If you’re worried about velvet being too warm a material, the cover features a delicate cotton reverse for added comfort which should help keep you cool during the night. It would look striking matched with gold bedroom accessories for a lavish finish.

Gingham Duvet Set
While we may associate gingham with spring time, the gentle, creamy colours of this set from H&M make it an appealing choice for autumn and winter. This affordable duvet set fits a single bed and has a thread count of 144. It comes with a matching pillow case and there are concealed metal press-studs at the bottom so you can open and close the duvet cover. It would look lovely surrounded by natural, wooden room accessories.
Layering your bed with bedspreads and throws is ideal for the chillier seasons when you want to wrap up, and this dark ochre velvet bedspread from Made.com is a real treat. The amber glow of the ochre would look stunning against a plain white duvet if you’re keen to create a contrasting look. You could also match the quilted bedspread with bold velvet cushions to add even more colour.
