8 bed linen sets for spring and beyond

Set your sights on a spring home refresh? Start with the bedroom. The humble duvet set has maximum impact with minimal effort - especially when we’re talking punchy prints, embroidered details and splashes of mood-lifting colour. Here’s our pick of the best (with no clean whites in sight).


1. Flower power

Olivier Desforge Eugenie Duvet Cover


There are floral prints, and then there are floral prints. This joyful, painterly option captures the mood of a wild meadow carpeted in the vibrant hues of hydrangea, anemone and eglantine.

OLIVIER DESFORGES, Eugenie Duvet Cover, £100


2. Tribal touch

Linea Krishna Embroidery Duvet Set


We’re championing all things artisanal, and this set gets top marks. Alright, so it’s technically white – but the ethnic-inspired embroidery adds just enough colour and texture. Pair with rattan accessories.

LINEA, Krishna Embroidery Duvet Set, £55


3. Wild side

Biba Adrianna Animal Print Duvet Set


Animal print might not be totally traditional for the warmer months, but this new take on leopard print is a little bit special. With a blush base and hints of electric blue, it feels totally fresh.

BIBA, Adrianna Animal Print Duvet Set, £75


4. Colour me happy

Linea Egyptian 200 Thread Count Duvet Set


Sometimes a sunshine hue is all you need. This Egyptian cotton set has plenty to choose from - we love dusky Rose, on-trend Coral, or this punchy Chartreuse. Just don't forget the matching pillowcases.

LINEA, Egyptian 200 Thread Count Duvet Cover, £59


5. Grey area

Murmur Scribble Duvet Covers


This Japanese-inspired abstract print is subtle enough to drag Scandi superfans away from their plain grey linen sets, but still lively enough to inject a bit of interest. Layer it up with contrasting cushions and a chunky knit.

MURMUR, Scribble Duvet Cover, £42


6. Retro revival

Orla Kiely Summer Flower Stem Duvet Cover


Orla Kiely’s retro-inspired patterns and cheerful hues were made for spring. With a masterful mix of blush, citrine, olive and marine blue, this update adds a little flower power to her signature stem print.

ORLA KIELY, Summer Flower Stem Duvet Cover, £75


7. Eastern promises

Sanderson Paper Doves Duvet Set


When it comes to creating a calming space, it doesn't get much dreamier (pun intended) than a flock of doves - especially when they're printed onto 100% cotton. Check out those polka dots on the reverse, too.

SANDERSON, Paper Doves Duvet Cover, £45


8. Word up

Donna Wilson Blah Blah Blah Duvet Set


It might be scrawled all over, but 'blah' is definitely not how we feel about this quirky duvet set from Donna Wilson. There's a cool, contemporary dash print on the reverse, too (and oh how we love a two-in-one).

DONNA WILSON, Blah Blah Blah Duvet Set, £53
