There’s something about a new set of bedding, that moment when you slip into your bed at night under a crisp, fresh set and nothing can hurt you anymore because you’re too cosy to let it.
I decided this year that I wanted to redecorate my bedroom as I haven’t done anything to it in years, even to the point I have no up to date photos out anymore. When I was contacted in regards to a collaboration with JD Williams to try out their bedding I jumped at the chance and took it as the starting point of my room overhaul.
I currently have a light pink painted room, with pink wooden furniture, some would call it the ultimate girlie haven. And whilst I am still a big lover of all things pink I wanted a fresh new look for the fresh start this year had become for me after a troublesome two years.
I have decided to go with purple as the main colour within my room and so when I saw the Reeva Duvet Set with an ombré purple design I was instantly in love. It’s a reversible set with a plain purple underside and is also available in blue and charcoal. This set is incredibly only £15 for a double set including two pillowcases, and ranges between £10 and £25 for the single to king size.
This was my first experience with JD Williams and I was so surprised by how cheap their bedding sets were. I’m always expecting to have to pay around the £50 mark upwards but the most expensive set that I received was £35 and the quality on them is amazing. Reeva is the comfiest set of bedding I’ve ever tried and I can’t wait to snuggle up in bed at night, I can’t even explain why but it’s just a cut above all my other bedding sets.
I was allowed to choose 4 items from the website and my second choice was the Drake Pink Duvet Set, did you really expect me to completely give up the pink. Once again this is a reversible set, I would describe the top loosely as an Aztec style pink and grey pattern and the underside is plain pink with an Aztec diamond pattern in white.
I only put Reeva on my bed at the weekend so I’m yet to try this but the material feels soft and similar so I can imagine it having the same comfort levels. The price mark on Drake Set is the same, with the double set retailing at £15. The way I see it is with the reversible sizes essentially that’s two sets of bedding for £15.
My Mum loves getting new bedding so she was listing over my shoulder at all the sets on the website and fell in love with the look of Aubrey Embellished Duvet Set in the shade Wine. This set is also available in Duck Egg and Heather, and features a delicate rose design in quilted faux silk and pleated detail. This set retails between £25 and £40 and is available in single, double and king size, with the double being £35.
This weekend is the official “bedding change weekend”, does anyone else have official weekends for it in their house? My Mum has already been stroking the bedding and saying how gorgeous it looks. She’s excited to see the final look of it on the bed, which I will of course post pictures of on my Instagram stories.
Finally I realised I needed a new purple sheet to go with my new purple look, once I decide on something I go all in. I loved the Lilac shade of the Egyptian Cotton Sheet Set, please note that it says set there as I did not take this in. On arrival I opened the packaging to find not only a fitted sheet but also a duvet cover and two pillowcases. I was thrilled to have another new set and have a sheet that went so well with Reeva as well as the set it came in.
I was so impressed with the quality and price of the JD Williams range, at such bargain prices you almost expect a scrimp on quality but that wasn’t the case at all. I have spent a lot of money on bedding before and then have been completely disappointed in it and dreaded having to have it on my bed but wanting to get my money’s worth. If you are on the look out for a new set I would definitely recommend taking a look at the wide range on JD Williams.
