This is the perfect time to get creative in the bedroom. We sleep an average of a little over seven hours or 30% of our day. Some of us are even working from the comfort of our bed with the new WFM reality. Here are some quick style tips to spruce up the bedroom with great duvet designs. Think prints, florals, polka dots and print, all inspired by some of the Spring/Summer 2020 fashion trends. Let us not forget other timeless fashion favourites too. For instance, animal print will add a little fire in the boudoir. Spoil yourself and stay in bed longer.
Here are some chic bedding finds and ideas, including some from unexpected retailers like Zara and Urban Outfitters.

Crochet is NOT the only way to get Bohemian Chic

Our pick is this cover with concentric and arching tufts, finished off with playful tassels in navy blue with a hint of purple. This is also available in cream. The duvet cover is made of 100% cotton.

Make it Your Own with Your Style Intuition
In the same way you mix your fashion pieces, start playing with colours for your bedding. Mix grays with a pop of pink. Like the zebra pick above, you decide what you want. A bold duvet will make a statement, or a pillowcase will simply accent. I have been reading a lot in bed lately. I decided to mix different prints from different sets to complete my new fitted sheet from simons.ca, my favourite Quebec retailer. Trust your intuition. Have fun and create more reasons why you should stay in bed longer!
