Must-have bed linen for autumn and beyond 

Nothing beats the feeling of fresh new sheets, and autumn is the perfect time to refresh your bedding collection. With the temperature dropping, the desire to hibernate is back. From crisp white high-thread count classics worthy of a five-star hotel, to decadent sets from Biba, lights out has never looked so appealing. 


1. Sophisticated florals 

Agent Provocateur Marlie Bedding


Floral bed linen can be something of a cliche, but the Marlie set from Agent Provocateur is a little bit different. A beautiful mix of soft silvers, whites and greys, the 300-thread count cotton sheets feature delicate, hand-painted hydrangeas - exactly what dreams are made of. 

Agent Provocateur, Marlie Bedding, £110


2. Go wild

Rita Ora Portobello Duvet Cover


Missing travels to exotic destinations? Bring the great outdoors in, with this clever racing cheetahs design from Agent Provocateur. A dusky olive green with flashes of bronze, silver and an edge of jet black, it's totally wild.  

Agent Provocateur, Haven Bedding, £110


3. Grown-up sequins 

Rita Ora Medina Duvet Cover


Transform your bedroom into a luxurious sanctuary with this delicate number – a rather opulent twist on the classic white bedding. Complete with ruffles of chiffon and silver sequins, it'll put even that evening clutch to shame.

Rita Ora, Medina Duvet Cover, £108


4. '20s decadence

Biba Serena Duvet Cover


Simple black sheets are given a Biba edge with an intricate frame of the brand's iconic gold logo. Perfect for those who like to keep their bedding classic, but with a twist.

6. Cult classic 

Ted Baker Duvet Cover


Calvin Klein is always a good thing, and if you're as big a fan of the underwear as we are, the brand's similar take on bedding is a must-have. Finished with CK’s iconic logo, this set gets that pared-back contemporary thing just right, while still managing to feel ridiculously inviting.

7. In full bloom

Ted Baker Fern Forest Duvet Cover


A twist on the traditional floral sheets, this moodier version from Ted Baker feels less twee, more statement. Mixing shades of grey for an on-trend ombre effect, with beautiful blues, reds, pinks and yellows, it will transport you straight to a woodland in bloom. The perfect antidote to a busy life.

You can always rely on a classic stripe design to be big on versatility and practicality. Made of a blend of recycled yarns, this timeless set from Hotel Collection is great for master bedrooms and guest rooms alike and can be paired with almost any other accessories; think earthy tones, mustard yellows or even a dash of soft pink.

Made from pure cotton sateen, the set gets bonus points for being reversible.

10.  A case of the blues
