Choosing your bed linen can become a real headache as there are so many choices. But a bed that feels good on the skin and looks good is the guarantee of a good and deep night's sleep, which is directly linked to our mood during the day and our productivity. We may be going a bit far, but we must never neglect the impact of materials and colours on your well-being. For bed linen, it is the material and the colour that will guide your choice.
How to choose an original duvet cover?
A duvet cover is chosen a bit like a piece of clothing, it is a matter of taste. At first, you must find the size adapted to your duvet, with the same measurements. In a second time you will make a choice of color and pattern. Like any other decorative object, the duvet cover must reflect the atmosphere you wish to see in the room, and harmonize with the rest of the colors present in the room. And finally, you will choose the material. Natural materials are to be preferred, they are more solid than synthetic, often softer, and less harmful for the skin.
Original materials for your duvet cover
On the bed linen market, cotton is the most common material, however, if you are looking for originality you will find it.

Create your own original duvet cover
If you are a creative person, who likes authenticity, why not make your own duvet cover? The web is full of tutorials and blogs to learn how to make all sorts of decorative objects, we live in a great time to learn to do it yourself! If you're resourceful, all you need to do is get some fabric, preferably soft and silky, in a pattern or colour you're happy with, and put them together to create your duvet cover. If sewing isn't your thing, opt for a white duvet cover, or one in a light, neutral colour, and dye it with natural dyes, with or without a pattern, depending on your mood. You can also decide to print a photo transfer, or even combine the two techniques. The two advantages of the diy duvet cover are the price: making it yourself is always cheaper, and the originality: you will be the lucky owner of a unique piece, original to tuck your nights of pride.
