I love a good, bold pattern, but when it comes to quilts and duvets I want to cozy up with something simpler. One way to avoid having "simple" cross over into "totally boring" is to choose bedding with texture.

1. Anthropologie is queen of ruffles and ribbons, and their bedding is no exception. The navy version of their Rosette Quilt offers a much darker look than the ones listed below. (If you'd like something similar but in custom colors, check out Etsy seller Quiltery.)

2. The Waterfall Ruffle duvet cover is girly (there are other colors, including pink), but it looks like it'd make for a peaceful night's sleep.

3. Ruffles, ruffles everywhere. They are all over clothes lately, and the aqua Tuxedo Ruffle bedding has them in a smaller size but brighter color. (It is also more affordable than this Anthropologie duvet cover of the same name and style. )

4. These silk comforters from Eileen Fisher are the most expensive things in this roundup and are appropriately luxurious.

5. For over a year I used West Elm's Pin-Tuck Duvet Cover in "sea spray," which is a really pretty, hard-to-pinpoint color. In Image 5, see the white version in the home of Design Star's Emily Henderson.

6. An Irish wool blanket might be a little small for two-person coverage, but it will keep one lucky person very warm. These blankets come with a long history (and sometimes the smell of sheep).

7. One of the best parts about textural bedding is that it looks good a little messy. Consider sleeping under a linen duvet, which has subtle natural texture and is bound to get creased quickly.

8. Pottery Barn's Pick-Stitch Quilt is minimal fuss, available in several colors, hand quilted, and on sale.

9. The look of this quilt from Brocade Home falls somewhere in between the two Urban Outfitters duvets but at a higher price point.

10. The Ofelia blanket from Ikea is the cheapest way to add texture to your bed. It won't be as soft as silk or as warm as wool, but it does the job.
