Embrace the tropical bird trend with this cool duvet set

Tropical and exotic birds are the latest trend to swoop into our homes - from parrots and toucans to cranes and love birds - nesting has never looked so good.

And with the benefits of sleep becoming ever more apparent through science and research, creating a comfortable and inviting space in which to slumber is a number one priority for many of us.

So this bold Orizuru bed linen from Christy (opens in new tab) certainly ruffled our feathers when we saw it.

It makes an ideal spring update for the bedroom. With its gorgeous inky indigo blue background and elegant flying cranes, the print actually nails two trends in one.

This duvet set is a quick and easy way to introduce both trends – for tropical birds – and inky blues – into your bedroom in one statement hit (without even looking at a paint chart).Although if you are so inclined..

Inspired by traditional Japanese crane designs, the Orizuru bed linen has a modern twist that we rather liked too.

The rich colour palette on the face adds depth and drama, whilst the coral dotted print on the reverse is a pretty addition that freshens the overall look – and makes a charming surprise when the covers are turned back.

The dotty print is also on the reverse of the pillow cases. So you could just turn the set over, if or when, you feel like changing the style.

The digitally printed design is made with 100% cotton and has a thread count of 180.
