Patterned sheets, colourful duvet covers and textured quilts: in the world of homewares, these are a few of our favourite things.

A new set of sheets is one of the simplest, yet most effective changes you can make to your bedroom. A brightly patterned duvet cover can add colour to an otherwise plain room, and crisp white linens are the quickest way to make your bedroom feel like a five-star hotel.

The best thing about this trick is that it's available to everyone - home owners and renters alike - and requires zero DIY skills (apart from the bit where you have to get the duvet inside the duvet cover, which we'll admit is the worst.)

Right now, interior shops are bursting with beautiful bedlinens. Don't stop at one set — the mix and match look is big news right now.

For inspiration, we've rounded-up the best buys to perk up your bedroom. Browse the gallery below to shop the look.
