Autumn is the ideal time to indulge in a little upgrade on your creature comforts. Where better to start than in the bedroom. Summer duvet away, now is the time to be making the most of the restorative winter months to snuggle down and make home a cosy haven to relax in. Changing your bedlinen and lamp shades can help add cosy colours to an otherwise plain scheme so be bold, think textures in warming shades and enjoy those cosy Sunday mornings in.
House of Fraser AW16 Homewares includes some fantastically priced Autumn Winter 2016 bed linen sets for an instant upgrade. Here’s a few of my favourites for the coming season.
Lovely Lace Bed Linen Sets
I love the pretty, shabby chic style that adding a bit of lovely lace bed linen brings to a cottage bedroom. Nothing promises a good nights sleep better than simple, crisp white bedding with a little feminine flourish. Upgrade yours from £34.30.
Style with – Dark grey accessories, simple textured cushions or a grey pompom throw for the winter months will make the look more glam than Gran.
Ticking Stripe Bed Linen Sets
I adore stripes as you know! I think this pretty ticking stripe duvet cover set from £14.50 is a great way to add a little French style to your bedroom. It’s a 300 thread count so feels luxurious yet has a nice simple utilitarian look at the same time. The great thing about using a fine stripe like this is you can add florals, checks and bold Autumnal colours with cushions and throws to your hearts delight without creating a scheme that looks too busy to sleep in.
Style with – Bold florals or a lovely embroidered tile cushion
Fabulous Flannel Duvet Sets
Forget all preconceptions you may have had about flannel bed linen sets – there’s really no need in this day and age for them to resemble your Granny’s nightie. If you live in an old house, as I do then having a go-to flannel bed linen set during the coldest months of the year can make all the difference to a great nights sleep. This lovely charcoal grey flannel duvet set starts from £10.00 at House of Fraser.
Natural Print Bed Linen
I’m not a massive fan of geometric print bed linens but I do think they can look very fresh and stylish if used in the right place. I’m always more drawn towards Moroccan style prints, I like the Moorish colours. That said I think this leaf print duvet set is really pretty for Autumn in a lovely rust hue. From just £24 I think it would add a nice pop of colour to a small apartment bedroom.
Style with – Copper home accessories, scented candles and green houseplants.
5* Hotel Bed Linen with Tantalizing Trims
I love the luxurious feel of a high thread count, the Palais collection at House of Fraser is 1200 making it super soft and cocooning for the winter months. When it’s cold and grey outside, I love the idea of making your bedroom at home like your very own 5* hotel and the added trim in contrasting colours gives this set a very elegant finish. From £31.50, a great investment for your home sanctuary!
Style with – Damask print cushions, dusky florals or glass pineapple bedside lights.
Bed Linen with Beautiful Blooms
I adore the vintage aspect that adding floral bed linen adds to a bedroom scheme but I don’t like too much colour in one hit. That’s why I really love the big and beautiful blooms of this Joules Monochrome Regency Bed Linen in navy and cream. Big bold flowers but in a simple colorway to promote restful sleep from £12.00 ( with a cheeky pink neon trim for good measure!).
Style with – Extra texture. I think an oversize pink velvet cushion and a pale grey wool throw would work well here.
