Celebrate National Sleep In Day with 5 of the best bedding sets

A dreamy duvet will take the chill off winter nights

Maybe it's not a good idea to give you even more reasons to stay in bed. But on a gloomy day like today, we couldn't resist. Shorter days and longer nights are creeping up upon us, which means it's the bed – not sofa or sun lounger – that becomes centre of attention.

It's time to get cosy: How to keep your house warm in winter

With that in mind, we decided ours needed a revamp. And what better place to start than the Ideal Home range at Very? Our 5 of the best bedding picks have all the key trends for winter covered – quite literally. Get one now, ready to celebrate next Sunday 28th October's National Sleep In Day.

1. For the trend setter – botanical bedding

Plant fronts are very much the new ditzy florals, and this stunning print is a fine example. Shades of blue, green and taupe blend together for a look that's bold and yet soothing. This may be the height of fashion, but at the same time it's not going to keep you up at night.

2. For a natural look – leaf-print bedding

We're staying on the botanical theme, but this smaller and softer print in grey is a good pick for those who like a pared-back look. Team with blush pink for a more feminine look, or with oranges and greens for something more autumnal.

Here's a bed set that Jay Gatsby would be proud of. And it perfectly encapsulates the luxe revival that's huge right now.
