The best spring and summer bedding sets
Pacific stripe seersucker duvet set, John Lewis
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
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
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!
Brisa Linen Duvet Cover and 2 Pillowcases, Made.com
This beautiful minty green bedding is made in Portugal, where the linen is pre-washed for extra softness. It’s a perfect choice if you like your interiors to look effortless and understated, and the fabric will get softer every time you wash it.
And if green isn’t your thing, this set comes in eleven more shades, ranging from earthy taupe to sunny mustard yellow. Whichever shade you choose, try styling the linen with other natural textures for a totally laid-back feel.
Beige Cotton Bedding Set with Anthracite Grey Palm Print, Maisons du Monde
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 Paradis bedding from Maisons du Monde, for example, has a summery tropical motif, but remains totally understated thanks to its black, white and beige colourway. It’s made from 100% cotton and 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
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 sultriest 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
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
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
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
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.
