Bedspread Chic

So good you’ll want to wear it!

London Fashion Week has been in full swing with designers like Mulberry and Preen showcasing their eagerly anticipated Autumn Winter collections. The latest trend to hit the catwalk looks as if it has actually taken inspiration from Dunelm’s much-loved bedding accessory – The Bedspread.

If you haven’t heard of Dunelm, here’s a little background. Dunelm is the UK’s No. 1 Homewares retailer, offering over 26,000 quality products across more than 28 different departments. The business operates from over 150 ‘out-of-town’ superstores and furthers the shopping experience online.

Be it clothing and accessories or homewares, at the end of the day, fashion is fashion. Decorated with a printed pattern of birds on blossom branches against a heather background and finished with a pink piped edging, Dunelm’s gorgeous Beautiful Birds Bedspread, which starts from only £38 is such fantastic quality, you’ll no doubt want to wear it! Casual comfort is taking the fashion world by storm, so you can take the phrase ‘in the comfort of your own home’ literally by carrying around a piece of your home with you wherever you go!


What’s nice to see is Mulberry breaking away from the standard AW trends and focusing on silk-scarf fabric capes, which took inspiration from quilted horses blankets. Focusing on the aesthetics of the English Countryside look, Mulberry Designer Johnny Coca really does seem to have struck a chord. With sun ray pleated skirts and cape tops, it’s easy to see where the asymmetry was inspired from.

The hot off the catwalk, Dunelm’s trendsetting bedspreads come in a fabulous range of colourways and patterns, which can be found here, to make sure you’re set for everyday of the week. If you’re looking for a slightly more subtle poncho style, the luxurious Dorma Lavinia Bedspread is perfect from only £110. Featuring colourful bouquets in warm red and blue tones on a neutral background, this traditional quilted bedspread is crafted from 100% cotton and features a sumptuous 100-thread count to keep you cosy and chic all through the day. Here’s where highstreet really meets designer, and the dupe couldn’t be any better!


Whatever your style, this one accessory is your key to becoming the fashion icon you have always wanted and it’s been at the bottom of your bed all this time! So what are you waiting for? Grab your bedding and wrap yourself up to embrace the Autumn Winter season’s hottest trend.
