A new duvet cover brightens a bedroom, a room make-over with no effort. Vertbaudet the stylish French children’s brand have a new Spring/Summer ’14 bedding range and we were given the opportunity to review a bedding set.
My son has dual interests of motorbikes and animals. His choice was a cover which combined both. The earthy tones lift his room and divert from the dull magnolia walls. Every wall in this rented house is magnolia, a vibrant duvet cover really does make a difference to the blandness. To compliment the cover we opted for striped sheets with matching colourways to the duvet.
The fabric has a lovely soft but substantial feel, it isn’t thin. A 100% cotton and washes well (I’m not one for ironing bedding, as is obvious from the photos).
The duvet has an additional ‘flap’ at the bottom which can be tucked under the mattress to keep the duvet in place, perfect for small people who thrash about in their sleep, a clever idea which I’d not come across before.
The duvet retails at £29.00, the fitted sheet at £17.00 and pillowcases at £9.00 each. In my view, given the feel and design that represents good value. There is a cheaper ‘happy price’ range, which starts at £19.00 for a duvet cover in simpler, but still lovely, designs.
