Why buy a Striped Duvet Cover?
Why are duvet covers with stipes so popular? Striped bedding is a lot more interesting and versatile in design terms than you might initially think:
Add Space and Flow with Stripes
Stripes can be playful in interior design. They can deceive the eye, seemingly adding space and flow to a room. Stripes can guide the eye to where you want them - be it a bedroom window, or perhaps another feature in the room. Stripes can make a room appear wider or longer, in just the same way clothes designers consider vertical or horizontal stripes.
Stripes for a Smaller Bedroom
Bedding designers know that the stripe is one of the best weapons in their armoury. For example, if you have a smaller bedroom, rather than choose a single colour duvet cover, try something with stripes instead. Single colour bedding, being one solid block of colour, will make a bedroom seem smaller, even claustrophobic, especially if it is a darker colour. So if you have a smaller bedroom, you should seriously consider including some striped bed linen.
Stripes Add More Colour
A striped duvet cover also allows you to have bed linen with a wider variety of colour than if you went solely for a simple pattern or plain cover. So perhaps if you aren't sure which colour bedding to go for, or maybe you simply love a variety, stripes will enable you to include as many colours as you like, without one colour necessarily overpowering the rest.
But aren't Stripes just for Men?
You can be forgiven for thinking that a striped duvet cover is for a single man's room, or maybe a teenage boy's room. But that was then...Sure there are quite a few striped duvet covers with a more bold, masculine feel, clearly aimed at men. But stripes can be for everyone. For example there are some wonderful duvet covers with playful candy stripes, reminiscent of seaside and deckchairs. Or there are duvet covers with a mix of floral and striped patterns, blending geometry to create great design. You just have to see our selection above to see that there's way more to interior design than just heavy, bold, printed stripes, or duvet covers in drab colours that look a bit like a pin striped suit.
Weaves as well as prints
And don't forget, a stripe needn't simply be 2 or more contrasting colours printed parallel to each other. Stripes on duvet covers can also be created with special weaving techniques, often with luxurious satin duvet covers. There's such an amazing choice of striped duvet covers around these days means that there's surely something for everyone.
Featured Striped Duvet Cover - Candy Stripes from Cath Kidston
Cath Kidston, for those of you familiar with her designs, is the Queen of floral prints. So it seems unlikely that this lovely candy striped duvet cover comes from the range of Cath Kidston bedding. But we love it, and feel it's the perfect antidote to those masculine navy blue striped duvet covers. There are just so many colours included in these lovely stripes, but as we mentioned above, not one colour is dominant, so you could never say this duvet cover was, say, pink. And just like many of Cath Kidston's designs, this bedding manages to be contemporary yet homely at the same time. If you take a look at the detail photo, you can also see that the bed is dressed with "mix" rather than "match" cushions, these with the trademark Cath Kidston floral print.
This lovely striped bed linen is available from House of Fraser. It comes in a range of sizes - single, double and kingsize - and includes sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers, all in super soft cotton percale.
Featured Striped Duvet Cover - Blue Barcode Stripes by Conran Heirloom
So, from pink we move to blue. This Barcode Blue Stripe duvet cover comes from the magnificent Conran Heirloom range. When you say Barcode and Blue in the same sentence, you are sure to think this must mean a laddish style duvet cover. But Heirloom bed linen is always far from that, and this striped cover is wonderfully sophisticated, modern and stylish. The barcode design subtly and cleverly uses different shades of blue to create a wonderfully lively design feature that looks as much organic as it does geometric.
This duvet cover is made from 100% cotton and can easily be machine washed at 40°C. It is available in all sizes - single, double, king size and super king size with matching pillow cases available to buy separately. This lovely striped bed linen is available from John Lewis.
