Cosy new-season bed linen that will trump white sheets

Looking for a quick and easy way to update your bedroom? These on-trend bed linen sets are just the thing

Never out of style, chinoiserie always adds a note of figurative interest to room schemes and this Chinese Garden (above) bed linen from Christy doesn’t disappoint. Its bold, over-scaled print is designed to take centre stage and looks striking when teamed with block colours in similar shades.

Also from Christy, we also love the elegant, understated glamour of Katie (above), which is a soft cotton jacquard with a pretty floral print. The delicate blooms, faded grape tones and subtle pattern give it a soft, dreamy quality that will be sure to soothe you to sleep. Its soft-pink shade lends itself well to throw cushions in purple and dark grey.

Taking its name from the French word for ribbon, the new Rubans silk bed linen collection from Gingerlily will lend a glamorous mood to the bedroom. Made from Mulberry silk (upper) and a silk/cotton mix on the reverse, each yarn is individually dyed and then woven on a traditional jacquard loom. The range is available in Gold and Sage (above).

It may be celebrating its 170th anniversary this year, but Yves Delorme can always be relied upon for beautiful, contemporary bedlinen, such as this Japanese-inspired design, Tokaido (above), which is named after the historic road linking the cities of Kyoto and Tokyo. Highlight the subtle orange-browns of the delicate branch design with a cosy brown blanket and co-ordinating throw cushions to complete the look.

Following the latest trend for shades of deep blue, the Vari cotton bed linen set in Ink Blue from is inspired by the Japanese tie-dye or Shibori technique. Vari is made from fine cotton percale fabric, so has a lovely smooth feel – great for your much-deserved duvet days. The mix of inky blue with crisp white will give your bedroom a calming, fresh look.

Ideal for traditional and contemporary schemes alike, this smart Roper Chalk duvet set (above) from Sheridan features a jacquard weave with classic architectural motifs entwined over a stunning herringbone pattern. Deeply textured and luxuriously soft, the design is finished with attached borders and piped with satin rope piping – perfect for snuggling up on those cold winter nights.
