11 Colorful & Floral Duvet Covers That Will Bring Life to Any Bedroom

Saffron Marigold - Updated: September 15, 2022

Flowers, in any of their endless color variations, are synonymous with romance. Think about it: the symbolic red rose, the butterflies-in-the-stomach-inducing bouquet, the sweet, floral perfume of a mysterious love interest in a novel—most romantic symbols revolve around one of nature’s best gifts.

It’s no wonder a billion-dollar floriculture industry relies on these natural wonders. Today, we’ll demonstrate the power of florals and colors in storytelling with eight floral duvet covers plus three colorful duvet covers to give you some decorating ideas in the bedroom.

Why choose a duvet cover rich in colors and flowers?

A colorful duvet cover may be more forgiving if you happen to spill a splash of coffee or a drop of strawberry jam on your bedding. (Don’t worry, that’s what duvet covers are for—protecting your duvet insert from messes like these.) By contrast, a plain comforter may be trendy, but it’s no protection against potential messes.

Beyond that, a floral duvet cover instantly gives your bedroom a freshened-up feel, like lifting up the blinds or clearing out the previous owners’ worn-down furniture. Colorful duvet covers are also available in so many shades, prints, and patterns that make them the number one choice for those who love to mix things up.

Colorful and floral duvet covers

Our block floral prints are inspired by interesting people and places that evoke wanderlust and pique curiosity. In our opinion, floral duvet covers set the stage for a romantic bedroom.

Vintage floral duvet covers

1. English Gardens ~ Duvet Cover

Fact: No Victorian or Regency romance is complete without a stroll through the gardens. Leading man and woman play coy as they make small talk about the fine weather, but the tension is palpable.

Though filled with wildflowers, the China blue bunches set in neat rows keep this garden looking meticulously maintained as if from an aristocrat’s greenhouse in one of Jane Austen’s novels. Plus, the classic color scheme bodes well for the bedroom, and the cover reverses to a matching print with a whole different vibe.

2. Midnight Lotus ~ Asian White Floral Persian Blue Duvet Cover

For something more abstract but traditional, Midnight Lotus happily steps up to the plate. This duvet cover is our interpretation of the sublime flower of India, the lotus. In the Buddhist faith, the red lotus represents love and shared compassion.

It is believed that in one of her incarnations, Princess Yashodhara offered five lotuses to Prince Siddhartha’s then-incarnation. In exchange, she asked that they be husband and wife in all their future reincarnations. Meanwhile, representing purity of mind and body, we hope the white lotus on this bedspread brings you a peaceful night’s sleep, at the least. The soft cotton material will surely be a prerequisite to some uninterrupted R&R.

Painted with themes of sacrifice, morality, and love, Casablanca tells the tale of ex-lovers Ilsa and Rick who meet by chance again in the chaos of war.

Our Casablanca Blues duvet cover is not so heartbreaking, but it is inspired by the same city on Morocco’s Western coast. Pale green, blue, and white motifs embellish the French blue ground, and this colorful duvet cover takes you to this breathtaking city on a clear, sunny day—one Ilsa and Rick may have shared under different circumstances.

Can you put a king down comforter in a queen duvet cover?

Yes. In fact, using a king down comforter in a queen duvet cover is ideal if you want to make your bedding appear fuller.

How often should you wash your duvet cover?

It’s advised to wash your duvet cover once a week or once every other week. If you use a top sheet between your duvet cover and your body, then once every other week may suffice.

However, if your duvet cover is used heavily, if you have a home with pets who jump onto the bed, or if you don’t use a top sheet, then washing your duvet cover weekly may be best.

What are the steps in layering a bed like a designer?

  1. Put on your bottom bedsheet over your mattress and/or mattress topper. Breathable fabrics like cotton are ideal for all-season compatibility.
  2. Optional: Put on a top sheet (flat sheet) over your bed and bottom sheet.
  3. Choose a duvet cover for your duvet insert. Alternative: Choose a comforter or a bedspread.
  4. Place Euro pillows in the back against your headboard.
  5. Place your sleeping pillows in the middle.
  6. Place two decorative pillows (shams or boudoir pillows) in front.
  7. Optional: Place a body pillow or neckroll pillow in front.

If you have a comforter instead of a duvet/duvet cover, consider placing a bed runner or folded throw blanket at the base of your bed for a more detailed look.
