Light Summer Bedding – dressing your bed for warmer weather

Light Summer Bedding – dressing your bed for warmer weather

We’re optimistic at Natural Bed Company and like to think that we’ll be having a beautiful summertime of bright, sunny days and relaxed, balmy evenings. With this dream in mind we’ve put together a collection of light summer bedding including fresh cotton and linen duvet covers, lightly quilted cotton bedspreads and low tog – light as a feather – duvets.

Fresh & Cool – Cotton Bedding

There’s nothing better than climbing between cool cotton sheets in the summer – cotton is soft to the touch, durable and the classic choice for fresh summer bed-linen. We have a wide range of cotton bedding to choose from – from undyed, unbleached organic cotton bedding to luxurious 1000 thread count bedding. Select the bedding to suit your style, budget and preferences.

For those looking for luxurious, durable Egyptian cotton we have lots of options to suit you – Sateen Stripe bedding in white or antique silver grey has a thread count of 230 and is stylish and easy to iron. We also offer plain 400 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding in white, silver grey or dark smoke grey and the Hotel Collection of 230 thread count, white, Egyptian cotton with a subtle silver grey embroidered detail. This is authentic Egyptian Cotton Bedding – made of Egyptian cotton grown in Egypt, spun into yarn in Egypt where the bedding is then woven and manufactured. This range of high quality, 100 per cent Egyptian cotton sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers are only then shipped to England. Alternatively take a look at the Boutique Hotel range in ivory with a broad band of warm grey to the Oxford pillowcases and duvet covers.

Looking for colour? Try our Ashland or Hira bedding sets – pure cotton, printed with bold contemporary prints. The Hira collection is in cobalt blue with a navy blue diamond pattern, the Ashland duvet covers and pillowcases are in ivory with a large, coral and mustard pattern. Our Indian Zari and Hyderabad duvet covers in fine cotton with gold brocade detail are also available in a range of jewel like shades including rich mango, deep teal, vibrant lime green or warm russet.

Relaxed Luxury – Linen Bedding

If you prefer more texture than cotton can offer, and appreciate a relaxed take on luxury – I recommend our soft, washed pure linen bedding. We have linen bedding in a range of colours to suit any interior design scheme – neutrals in cool white, soft dove grey, a very subtle duck-egg blue or deep charcoal grey – along with Lisbon Linen bedding in a vivid coral colour or soft lilac-grey.

Linen fibres are both hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial and have natural heat-regulating qualities which make it feel pleasantly cool on a hot day and warm in cooler weather. It is the epitome of all-season bedding and perfect paired with our all-season white goose down duvet. This duvet gives you two in one: a light weight duvet rated at 4.5 tog for summer use and a heavier one rated at 9 tog for autumn-winter use. Clip the two together to make a 13.5 tog duvet for the coldest weather. These different options allow you to adapt the duvet to your personal level of warmth and to use comfortably throughout the year.

If you are just looking for a simple low tog duvet – we have a range of duvets in 4.5 tog, including white goose feather & down, white goose down or luxurious Hungarian white goose down filled duvets. We also offer a spring-summer wool filled duvet – the equivalent of 4-7 tog – as well as being an insulator, wool breathes and wicks away moisture. This allows the body to regulate its own temperature aiding a restful night.

Light-weight Summer Bedspreads

The light-weight bedspread is a great alternative to a low tog duvet – it can be used in the summer instead of your duvet (just add soft cotton sheets) and can be used in the winter over your duvet as a cosy extra layer.

We offer a wide range of light-weight bedspreads. If your preference is for neutrals take a look at our contemporary Stockholm Bedspreads, Chevron Quilts, Sodala Bedspreads or more traditional Classic Quilted Bedspreads. If you are a fan of floral patchwork bedspreads try the Silverleaf  or Wild Rose Patchwork Quilts.
We also have a wide range of more colourful options. The Eden bedspreads (in crimson, sage green or aqua) are reversible, with a vibrant floral pattern on one side and a modern geometric, or simple leaf pattern, on the reverse. The Blue Fleur embroidered bedspread – is a great choice for a pretty country cottage style and is in fresh white and blue – a timeless colour combination, perfect for summer. The Coastal look is another favourite summer look – try the Kadi Sky or Ripple bedspreads to create this look at home.
