If you grew up in the seventies and eighties then chances are this Snurk Granny Bedlinen from Heals will look familiar to you.
The design is inspired by seventies crochet, specifically the Granny square style blankes which were all the rage at that time. Incorporating plenty of bright colours set against a grey background this is a great option for crafty types who can't quite get round to crocheting their own blanket.
The single set includes a duvet and one pillowcase whilst the double set comes with two pillowcases. Prices go from £70 to £120. Check it out online here.
At first glance, Heal's Snurk granny bed linen set looks like a traditional crochet cover. But this design comes with a twist.
If you like the design of Orly Kiely, this Serena bedlinen from Laura Ashley could be a cheaper alternative.
As the UK gears up for the excitement of the Olympics next year, no doubt there will be lots of comparisons with the last time we hosted the event. That's exactly what's been marked with the London 1948 Olympics bedlinen.
Horrockses Fashions were best known for their floral dress designs in the 1940s and 1950s label and have cropped up a few time on this blog: both because of the exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum last year, and the range of products inspired by the label available from the V&A. Some of their best loved patterns are now being revived on bedlinens.
This Eloise bedlinen, available from House of Fraser, is a contemporary design but looks like it has come straight from the 1950s.
The design, made by Sheridan, is a colourful design, covered with abstract shapes. It's definitely got the look of some of the artist's textiles of the Fifties, especially the work of someone like Marian Mahler. There's a pattern on the reverse too, all printed onto 100% cotton.
More interesting than your average bedlinen, prices start at £19 for a pillowcase.
