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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
