Soft and silky

Fresh bedding makes a huge difference to the look of our room, but also our wellbeing. The sateen range from Cuddledown is pure cotton and available in a range of colours designed to perfectly fit your duvet. Buttons across the bottom side provide a secure fit, while the 500-thread count assures a comfortable night’s sleep. Sateen has a naturally smooth silk-like feel, with a subtle shimmer.

Faux fur frenzy

Let’s face it, you can never have too many blankets! Keeping them stocked up in ottoman pouffes or footstools, or folded away in other storage within your living room is perfect for making sure they’re accessible when you need them. This faux fur offering from The French Bedroom Co is luxuriously soft with the reverse side in silky soft faux suede which keeps the throw on your legs without sliding away.

Festive Fair Isle

While this might not be your bedding of choice all year round, it’s certainly bound to be popular for the month of December! As Christmas-themed bedding without being too much, its bound to it in with an existing neutral bedroom scheme with a sprinkling of festive magic.
