Spring nesting…

Coral Paisley Jacquard bedspread – Zara Home

I’ve always been a fan of white bedding but at this time of year I’m always drawn to the pretty brights available in bedding sets. Everywhere I turn the patterns and prints are spectacular, especially the range of glorious florals that make perfect spring-summer sleeping sense.

I thought I would round up some of my favourites and see what you guys think?

Clockwise from tope L: Peach Georgette bedding set, Matthew Williamson at Debenhams // Overscale floral bedset, M&S // Alimar (pink floral) bedding from Debenhams // Summer Floral Bedset, M&S // Charlottenburg, Designers Guild // Wild Coast bedlinen, M&S

Of course, it requires quite a neutral room to pull off such a block statement of colour and pattern but if you already have that in place then it is such a cost effective way to update your space and make a massive impact. I’m particularly drawn to the blues I’m seeing in various prints…

What do you think readers? Are you tempted or are you still sticking with white?

  1. I know what you mean, I saw some great colourful bedspreads in TKMaxx yesterday but ultimately I just can’t do it. White is alright with me. I would like to find some yellow bed accessories though, for our new room (the new bed is going up tonight and I need to dress it). I’ve not seen much yellow about in pillows and throws. Any tips? X

  2. As a lover of purple I have had plain purple sheets since I moved away from home. But I am excited to move into out new flat and dress it shortly. Both sets that caught my eye in johnlewis the other day were primarily white but with purple florals or patern. I am currently deciding if our new flat should have neutral walls and bold furnishings or bold walls and neutral furnishings. I am particularly loving statement blue walls…we shall see 🙂

  3. Love love love the coral patterned bedding. Just can’t do it though, I think it’s too feminine (& gloriously so!) for a shared bedroom. I feel like I have already dictated a lot of the decorative touches around our flat so it’s only fair that C doesn’t feel like he is sleeping in a “girl’s room”. Saying all that, he likely wouldn’t notice, let alone comment… I’d still find wet towels on the pillows & errant socks everywhere even if I decorated it like a fairy princess.

  4. Another unexpected bonus of patterned sheets: pawprint camouflage. Since I am a horrible disgusting person with no standards, we let our dog hop up onto our bed when we’re not sleeping in it and curl up like a big cat, because it’s so darn comfy and we are pathetic dog owners. So, yeah, I’m all about the patterned sheets, the brighter the better.

    • Totally get that as our cats like to make little fur ‘nests’ anywhere they think is comfy enough 😉 We use throws and actually have a silk one that doesn’t seem to let the hairs stick to it and so remains surprisingly hair free – win win!

    • Completely agree about the paw prints. We have 3 cats and a muddy garden and white bedding is a definite no in our house. Definitely patterned all the way, I love the Bluebellgray one – gorgeous.

  5. I LOVE these. Unfortunately my husband doesn’t……. However we are getting the keys to our new house later this month, and really want to make the guest bedroom, super pretty and feminine….. I’m also pregnant so wandering if I can pass it off as a craving!?!

  6. I love all these patterns – but the Zara throw is gorgeous, it’s such a cheery colour! Getting tempted to completely update our black and white bedroom now…

  7. I’m very much a fan of patterned bedding as I do have a very neutral bedroom otherwise (white walls, off white curtains, beige carpet…) currently bed is sporting multicoloured polka dot bedlinen but I do LOVE that Bluebellgray set, just can’t believe the king duvet cover is £100?! Eek!
