The best spring and summer bedding sets
Egyptian cotton sateen luxury duvet set in White, Hampton & Astley
- Buy now from Hampton & Astley (£153.32)
Give in to the luxury of this Egyptian cotton bedding set. The thick, 300 thread count fabric will give your bedroom the look of a five-star hotel. This bedding feels reassuringly heavy, as the fabric is so dense, but the glossy, sateen finish makes it feel silky and cool at night. The piped detailing on the duvet cover and pillowcases is a lovely extra touch that makes this set feel high-quality. If classic white isn’t to your taste, you can pick up this bedding in gorgeous shell pink or elegant pearl grey.
Pacific stripe seersucker duvet set, John Lewis
- Buy now from John Lewis (£60.00).
The puckered weave of seersucker doesn't just look attractive, it serves a clever purpose on a warm day - the bunching of the cotton keeps the material away from the skin, which is why its a popular choice for clothing in warmer climes. It also makes for spectacularly breathable bedding, like this set from John Lewis. With a jaunty striped pattern inspired by the blue of the Pacific Ocean, this is a classic summer look.

White Linen Bedding, Scooms
- Buy now from Scooms (£99.00).
Scooms is one of our go-to brands for all things bedding here at YourHomeStyle. The family-run brand is passionate about sustainability and produces premium quality duvets, pillows and bedding, so we couldn’t believe our luck when we heard that they’ve added a new range of super-soft linen bedding in three simple shades – pure white, calm grey and soft pink.
The linen range certainly doesn’t disappoint. Not only does it give your room an incredibly beautiful relaxed look, but it’s extremely soft, making for an incredibly comfortable night’s sleep. We love the fact that this eco-friendly bedding is made in small batches in Portugal, but our favourite feature has to be the oversized mother-of-pearl buttons that sit neatly at the bottom of the set – they add a touch of luxury and make your space feel really special, as any bedroom should be.
Artisan studio floral quilt, Monsoon
- Buy now from Monsoon (£130.00).
Each of the designs in Monsoon’s artisanal range – which this beautiful floral quilt belongs to – has been developed by skilled artisans in Jaipur, India, using handcraft techniques such as batik and hand-block printing. The delicate bloom motif on this particular piece is perfect for brightening up a lacklustre room, and the lightly padded cotton is great for warmer evenings. We love it!
Linen Duvet Cover Set - Sage, Cultiver
- Buy now from Cultiver (£180.00).
Cultiver's linen products are crafted from 100% European flax, ensuring exceptional quality. With a weight of 165gsm, their linens strike the perfect balance between being substantial and breathable. Additionally, they are OEKO-TEX® certified, guaranteeing that they are free from harmful substances and safe for your well-being. This duvet cover set is finished with a button closure and internal ties in each corner to secure your duvet.
And if green isn’t your thing, this set comes in 16 more shades, ranging from earthy cedar to peachy blush. Whichever shade you choose, try styling the linen with other natural textures for a totally laid-back feel.
Amazonia Toile Reversible Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set, Dunelm
- Buy now from Dunelm (£10.00).
Summer décor isn’t just about colour, and if you tend to prefer a monochrome or earth-toned scheme, there are plenty of ways to embrace the season.
This Amazonia Toile bedding from Dunelm, for example, has a summery tropical motif, but remains totally understated thanks to its black, white and beige colourway. It's also reversible, so you can enjoy a simple pinstripe in the same set. There's an option made from 100% cotton and also one made from polycotton, and it features a practical button fastening making it super easy to change – try styling it with textured cushions to amp-up the Boho vibes.
Bee embroidered cotton bedding set, Marks & Spencer
- Buy now from Marks & Spencer (£39.50).
We love the low-key cuteness of Marks & Spencer's bumblebee bedding design, featuring a scattering of bees against a backdrop of brilliant white.
Woven from 100% pure cotton, it will keep you cool on the balmiest of nights. Plus, its no-crease finish means you won't find yourself sweating over the ironing board on a hot summer's day!
Non Iron Plain Dye Hunter Green Duvet Cover, Dunelm
- Buy now from Dunelm (£8.00).
We love the fact that emerald green duvet cover is such a striking colour, but the thing we love the most is the fact that it’s been treated with a non-iron solution that minimises creasing. Made from cotton and polyester, this bedding is super soft and durable, plus, it’s been thoroughly tested to guarantee colour fastness. Just be aware that if you do purchase this one, pillow cases are sold separately!
100% Cotton Seersucker Duvet Cover, Matalan
- Buy now from Matalan (£35.00).
Colour and pattern will always have a place in spring/summer interiors, but you can never underestimate the transformative effect that a fresh white duvet cover can have on a room.
This cotton seersucker duvet set is beautifully crinkled, so it’ll add an element of interest to your room while still looking timeless and simple. Team it with bold and bright statement cushions for a joyful display, or layer with a couple of lightweight white throws for a subtle but fresh feel.
Washed Cotton Duvet Cover Set, H&M
- Buy now from H&M (£49.99).
This duvet set is made from closely-woven organic cotton, one of the most breathable fabrics - perfect for sultry nights. We love the lilac shade, which makes us think of fresh spring blossoms. Style it next to a vibrant green houseplant to breathe a new lease of life into your room.
Cotama Cotton Duvet Cover, La Redoute
- Buy now from LA Redoute (£38.00).
Boho-inspired style lends itself perfectly to the relaxed warm spring and summer months, so this La Redoute set is perfect when you’re after a seasonal update.
The textured geometric patterns will introduce a pop of colour into your space without overwhelming it, and the crisp white background will make your room feel fresh and airy. Try pairing this set with a woven rug for a laid back vibe.
