WHAT MATERIAL ARE HABITAT DUVET COVERS MADE FROM?
Creating the bed of our dreams is all a matter of taste. Some of us prefer a silky, satin-esque duvet cover, while others prefer something a little more on the heavy side - some of us may not even use the cover during the night, therefore choose theirs simply based on what it looks like during the day.
No matter your personal preference, when it comes to dressing your duvet we’ve more than got you covered. First up, for those who prefer the height of luxury, it has to be our Egyptian cotton covers. To strip it back, what we know as Egyptian cotton is actually extra long staple cotton, and it comes from a native North American cotton plant that grows particularly well in Egypt's climate. Used to make luxury products the world over, Egyptian bedding is renowned for its high quality of cotton and ultra-soft texture, boasting a high thread count that’s second to none. Its secret lies in the fact that it contains these aforementioned long fibres, all of which are extensively woven to create soft, fine, but durable fabric. To sleep in this type of cotton is said to feel like sleeping in a second skin. Why not try it? Chances are you might like it…
If the price puts you off (it can be on the premium side, but more than pays for itself in the long run) then there’s still a lot of good things to be said about simple, everyday cotton itself. It’s perfectly simple to get a good night’s sleep without an Egyptian intervention - trust us. No matter its thread count, 100% cotton is always beautifully breathable, meaning you can happily wave goodbye to uncomfortable nights - and even grumpier mornings. Even better, these days cotton duvets tend to be manufactured in such a way that allows them to emerge from the washing machine wrinkle free, so you can kiss goodbye to ironing sheets too. (Does anyone actually do that?)
Finally, linenis heralded for its light massaging effect - the result of tiny, very specific breaks in the fabric. It can feel ever so slightly rough, the impact of which is stimulation to the blood flow, aiding increased relaxation. What’s more, linen is known to be beautifully breathable; warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The most alluring factor, is that the feeling of luxury is said to be second to none. Eat your heart out, Egyptian cotton.

WHAT STYLES, DESIGNS AND PATTERNS ARE AVAILABLE?
Whenever you feel the need to revamp your bedroom and decorate every wall, and maybe even spruce up the floor - don’t. First, take a step back, think. Does your room really need a complete overhaul, or are you simply a teensy, weensy bit bored? We understand, it happens - and it’s easier to fix than you think.
Take it from us, it’s a much less expensive option to simply purchase a new duvet, and maybe a bedspread, throw and a few cushions to go with it: much more economical - and much less upheaval involved - than stripping the walls and re-laying the floor.

WHAT COLOURS DO HABITAT'S DUVET COVERS COME IN?
When it comes to a question of colour, the same rules apply - think about switching up the shades before you do a complete redecoration - you might be surprised at the effect a simple change can have on your way of thinking. We love to explore the whole spectrum of colour, from red to blue, green to orange and pink to yellow. The colour of the sunshine, the latter is always going to help lighten the mood of any environment. Meanwhile, red and orange will add warmth, green and blue are said to invoke calm. If a pretty, soothing vibe is what you’re in search of, then all you’ve got to do is think pink.
Colour aside, cream and neutral duvet covers are perfect for creating a natural look and feel. Contemporary trends are all about keeping things serene and simple. These shades pale in comparison only to white - the ultimate classic. Simple, clean and crisp, white bedding comes complete with a lot of personality - it can make your bedroom say so much, quite the contrary to saying nothing at all, as its empty canvas might suggest. Sometimes you just have to strip things back in order to see their true beauty, and this applies to the bedroom too. Maybe that much needed revamp is more about relaxing your surroundings, quieting the decor - and adding an element of chic, courtesy of a little white noise.
