  • Combine floral prints with pops of colour: An option is to co-ordinate your duvet cover with your existing wall colors while also combining a tone of spring. For example, a neutral wall colour pairs well with a vibrant bed spread. When picking a stand-out linen be sure to balance this out with neutral additions like block coloured decorative pillows, a neutral throw blanket and a pastel coloured sheet set.

  • Update to summer-weight fabrics: It is common to have winter bedding and summer bedding. Different fabrics suit different temperatures. For example, wool duvet inners are often chosen for winter as they are slightly heavier and add warmth. Being Spring, this is the perfect time to begin transitioning into your summer-weight bedding and adding an additional blanket while it's still cool.
