Country Floral Bedding Sets and Duvet Covers
Transform your bedroom into a cottage inspired retreat with your choice of country floral decorative bedding sets, which combine the antique charm of the olden days with the traditional rustic style of a countryside farmhouse.
Your home will feel like an idyllic rural escape, even if you live in the heart of the city all you have to do is decide on the floral style, the material and the size.
Typical bed sets include a quilt cover, 2 matching pillowcases and a bottom sheet that fits onto your mattress. Alternatively, you can shop for separate duvet covers and mix and match your pillow styles.
Traditional country floral bedding usually features bold yet intricate floral designs, from striking roses and colourful fuchsias to a blooming meadow of daffodils, set against a white, cream or light background. Change the colours and print to suit the seasons.
Modern sets feature more contemporary leaf patterns, some even going for the entire tree with the branches wrapping around the entire duvet. It's entirely a matter of taste, and a case of matching your bedding with the rest of your bedroom décor.
Bright floral colours like tangerines and turquoises are popular with contemporary bedding, whereas traditional primary colours of reds and blues are common with the classic floral bed sets.
For the finest, softest bedding, choose 100% cotton or Egyptian cotton, which both guarantee a fabric that feels great on the skin and won't weigh you down too much in bed. It's also anti-wicking, so it won't trap moisture. Choose bedding with a high thread count for optimum softness.
A cheaper alternative to 100% cotton is a high quality cotton blend, which combines some properties of cotton with another material, usually polyester. This new "polycotton" is soft, yet durable, and it won't need ironing as the material doesn't crease easily.
