In the winter months we drag out out duvets from the cupboard, and adorn out beds in fluffy throws and quilts to make nests where we can hibernate and escape from the cold weather. Since our bed is our escape from the turbulent world outside, why not make an extra special effort to make it beautiful and homely; the best way of doing this is to invest in a unique quilt.
If you lack a granny who’s a dab hand at the sewing machine, our favourite places to source quilts are from Urban Outfitters or Anthropologie, as they both seem to source totally unique and different quilts from independent designers. Here’s our pick of the best:-
The Lush Landscape Bedding from Anthropologie is a work of art; a collage of colours, florals and jungle wildlife this quilt will be the centrepiece in any room. Each flower is hand stitched and you can purchase matching pillowcases and bedding; personally I would finish this look with a yellow silk bedding in a white room for maximum impact.
It seems many interiors experts are falling in love with the vintage chic appeal of the Union Jack; it’s no surprise when smokey shades of vintage fabric in red white and blue go so well together, especially when teamed with a shabby-chic floral backing like this quilt from Anthropologie! I guess royal wedding fever is still hanging in the air for most of the world. For the ultimate retro countryside look add stripped back painted furniture and a patchwork quilt cover.
If you’re a fan of light and bright, then this patchwork quilt from Urban Outfitters is tradition spiced up with sea blues and vivid greens. The Kapali quilt uses florals and leaf prints and looks great against crisp white sheets and bare wooden floors.
I moustache you a question, are you a fan of this quilt set from Urban Outfitters? It’s difficult to put into words the universal love of moustaches by the internet generation but it can be translated into interior design, where you can display your love proudly on your pillowcase.
