We all know how important a good night’s sleep can be, so when it comes to choosing your bedding, it’s important to get it just right.
While your choice of bedroom wall decor and accessories will undoubtedly have a huge effect on how you feel in your space, a comfortable bed is the most important element in getting a full night of restful sleep. So, when it comes to choosing your spring and summer bedding, it’s good to think carefully about the fabrics, textures and colours you go for.

When you’ve swapped out your thick winter duvet for something a little lighter ahead of the warmer months, the next step is working out which type of bedding works best in your space.
Lightweight fabrics with moisture wicking properties will make for a pleasant night’s sleep during the sunnier seasons, while duvet sets with bright colours and fun patterns will do a great job of refreshing your space.
Whatever material and style you opt for, keep in mind that we spend over 33 years of our lives in bed, so sometimes an investment is worth it!
From sunny pastel linens to tropical inspired throws, keep reading to discover our roundup of the best spring and summer bedding sets for 2021:
The best spring and summer bedding sets
Pacific stripe seersucker duvet set, £60, 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, from £99, 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.
Silvana quilt cover set, £149, Sheridan’s
If you’re not lucky (or green-fingered) enough to have your own flowerbeds overflowing with blossoms, this bedding set from Sheridan’s can bring the vibe into your home instead. Inspired by a vintage Sheridan’s pattern, the Silvana quilt set features a riot of blooming florals on a field of sunny yellow.
The set is woven from GOTS-certified cotton which has met rigorous international standards in sustainability, organic production and social responsibility.
Artisan studio floral quilt, £130, 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, £99 for a UK double set, 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.
Mexicana Tapestry Print Bedspread, £115 for a kingsize, Graham & Green
If you’re looking to bring a vibrant, fiesta-like feel into your bedroom, this quirky Mexicana bedspread from the home of unique homewares, Graham & Green, might just be the thing for you. We love the combination of bright, primary colours with a tapestry-inspired print – go all out and style it with the matching cushion, or take it one step further and team it with fun neon pillows.
Palm Printed Velvet Double Bedspread, £135, Oliver Bonas
If you already have more duvet covers than you know what to do with, it doesn’t mean you can’t change up the look of your space with a new throw.
We love the fact that this bedspread is double sided, with soft-touch green velvet on the one side and a pink and white palm tree motif on the other. It’s perfect if you’re looking to bring tropical vibes into your home while still being mindful of changeable British weather. Pair with some cushions that have a similar crinkle stitching effect for a cohesive, stylish look.
Beige Cotton Bedding Set with Anthracite Grey Palm Print, £99, 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, £39.50, 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, from £8, 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, from £35, 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, £39.99, 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.
Pretty Peach Duvet Cover Set With Reusable Fabric Bag, £45 for a double set, Urban Outfitters
This Urban Outfitters duvet set is super soft, and eco-conscious shoppers will appreciated that it comes in a matching, re-usable drawstring bag instead of plastic packaging.
The illustrated peach design is playful but understated, and we love how the fabric looks against stripped-back, natural furnishings.
Cotama Cotton Duvet Cover, from £25, 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.
Harmony Hemp Duvet Cover, £228, Anthropologie
This hypoallergenic Anthropologie bedding is crafted from hemp, which requires just one third of the land, water, and fertiliser usually needed to cultivate cotton.
This means that not only is the set durable with moisture-wicking properties, but it’s also eco-friendly and perfect if you’re trying to make a more sustainable choice in your home.
Aside from the fact that this set is planet friendly, we love its sunny yellow shade and dainty bow detailing. Although it’s definitely pricey, it’ll look great in any room – style it against simple wooden furniture for a unique take on Scandi style.
