Thinking it’s time to makeover your boudoir into a cosy sanctuary, where you can lounge, read and finally have that Pinterest-worthy breakfast in? Discover your personal design style to find the perfect new bedding to suit you.
As the weather gets colder, and if you, like us, prefer to spend more time in bed, the mood will inevitably strike to upgrade your well-worn linens. When looking for a new bedding set, consider your personality and the colours you love. Read on to see which of these five styles best describes your personal aesthetic:
You love neutrals and strive for an organised, serene calm setting at home. A minimalist who loves clean lines, you appreciate quality and love chic, understated style. You have an authoritative personality, always know what you want and have discerning taste. Your ideal Sunday morning in bed involves reading Vanity Fair (print version of course) while organising a group brunch. Go for sleek bedding in neutral colours with precise trims.

You have a romantic, idealistic persona and love frills in your home, as well as bright colours, pastels and florals in your clothing choices. You love to live larger than life and are inspired by botanical prints, whether they be artful or kitsch. On an ideal Sunday morning, you’d stay in bed drinking tea and reading Pride and Prejudice. Poeticise your bedroom with painterly florals in vivid shades and patterns.

‘More is more’ is your motto. You love in-your-face glamour in the vein of the Kardashians of the world and embrace all key fashion trends. You’re most likely to spend Sunday morning in bed sipping hot chocolate and reclining with a face mask. Sumptuous bedding in opulent colours with embellished touches is your thing, and decorative pillows are a must-have for your bed.

You adore woolly jumpers and Wellies, and opt for a nature-inspired vibe in your home. Unsurprisingly, you love autumn and probably don’t linger in bed too long as you’re eager to get outside. Take advantage of the current seasonal interiors trend and give your bedroom the vibe of a chic country cabin with earthy colours, checked patterns, and the motif du jour – the stag.

A fan of pop art, you’d love to personalise your room with modern bedding with a slight retro or graphic vibe. You’ve been accused of being quirky-in-a-good-way at least once, and you’re more likely to spend Sunday morning in bed trying to find the perfect VSCO Cam filter for your pics of last night’s mason-jar drinks while scrolling through the guardian.com. It’s all about an eclectic mix of colour and pattern for you.
