To get a good nights sleep during hot summer nights it’s so important to select the right bedding. In this blog we take a look at the luxury bedding ranges we have available and how best to incorporate it into your bedroom scheme to keep you feeling fresh and well rested all summer.
Luxury Linen Bedding
Linen bedding is the perfect choice for summer weather as linen fibres have natural heat-regulating qualities which make it feel pleasantly cool during a warm summer season and warm in cooler weather. Linen is also naturally hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial, so you can be sure to stay feeling fresh.
We have a wide range of linen bedding available including pillowcases, duvet covers, fitted sheets and flat sheets. Sleeping under just a soft linen flat sheet is a great way to keep cool during a very hot and muggy summer night – so for this summer it’s ideal! We have a stylish collection of linen bedding available in white, dove grey, duck-egg blue or charcoal. This range includes everything from flat sheets to duvet covers.
We also have a range of linen duvet covers and pillowcases in the following colours: slate grey, mid grey, silver grey, limestone, coral and cobalt blue (the coral and cobalt blue linen bedding is of limited availability, so don’t delay if it’s of interest!) The silver grey and limestone ranges are made using ‘vintage wash’ linen, the range includes fitted sheets, duvet covers and pillowcase pairs. The slate grey (almost black) and mid grey linen bedding collection is made up of duvet covers and pillow-case pairs. Linen bedding has a luxurious, but relaxed quality and looks just as good rumpled as newly ironed.
Linen bedding 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. Just 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 the duvet comfortably throughout the year.
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. Happily we have a wide range of cotton bedding to choose from. This includes undyed, unbleached organic cotton bedding in three varieties: soft cotton bedding in a brown melange fabric, classic organic cotton bedding in cream and the luxury sateen finish organic bedding. We also offer luxurious 1000 thread count bedding in white or warm platinum grey, and 600 thread count bedding in white.
If you want the relaxed, rumpled aspect of linen bedding but in cotton, I would recommend super-soft stone-washed cotton. We have white duvet covers and pillow cases with a ruffle edge and matching fitted sheets in stone-wash cotton, perfect to give you that ‘on holiday’ feeling. We also have plaster pink and storm grey bedding in stone-wash cotton. If you want a deeper texture we also have waffle bedding in ivory, the bedding incorporates both plain, 220 thread count, percale cotton and a high quality ‘waffle’ weave fabric.
Looking for a simple, classic duvet set in pure cotton? Check out our Chambray bedding range in ecru, grey or peach. We have a huge range of plain cotton bedding available – just select the bedding to suit your style and budget.
For those looking for patterned bedding are in luck too. If you want a classic look – try our Toile Print Bedding. For a more modern floral print there is the Ochre Blossom Print Bedding – ivory with a golden blossom pattern – and the Crimson Blossom Print Duvet Set which has a black background for a bold, vibrant look. The new Cornflower duvet sets are a pretty, blue and beige option. The Zen, Astral and Marakesh duvet sets are a great value option – cotton bedding with a fashionable, modern print on fine 180 thread count cotton.
If you want something modern with a designer twist try the Donna Wilson print bedding – there are three designs to choose from: Rainy Day (that’s got to make you feel cooler!), Single Tree or Flying Bird. These prints are fun and bold, in cool shades of blue and green. They could work with that classic summer look – Coastal – as would the navy blue striped bedding, or black and white fine striped duvet sets.
Can’t Decide? Try a Linen & Cotton Blend
We have a couple of ranges of bedding which blend cotton and linen for soft, luxury bedding with some of the relaxed feel of linen. For a classic, timeless look try the Hemstitch range – a beautiful collection of linen blend bedding with a delicate hemstitch detail. Available in ivory, the linen blend fabric is 55% linen and 45% cotton. The linen blend fabric combines the durability and luxury of linen with the softness and lustre of cotton. It will feel softer after every wash, wrinkle less than pure linen and last for years. The collection includes simple Housewife pillowcases and elegant Oxford pillowcases, double and king-size duvet covers and fitted sheets.
For a pretty, vintage look try the Vintage Print Linen Blend Bedding collection. This is a beautiful collection of linen blend bedding with a delicate floral print, over-dyed and washed for a vintage look. Available in deep blush pink, the linen blend fabric is 60% linen and 40% cotton – it is soft to the touch with a linen textured weave.
A great value option is our Cotton & Linen Mix Bedding, available in stone or navy. These modern duvet sets include a duvet cover and a pair of standard pillowcases (50x75cm each). A coloured cotton and linen mix fabric (80% cotton with 20% linen) to the front, with a plain ivory fabric to the reverse.
Light-weight Duvets or Quilts
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.
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 flat 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 in a range of colours, patterns and textures. If your preference is for neutrals try the Chrysanthemum, Fairmont and Classic Embroidered bedspreads. For monochrome bedding we have lots of choices in white, grey or black. Take a look at our contemporary Stockholm Bedspreads, Chevron Quilts or Diamond Textured Bedspreads to see just a few of the options available
