Spruce up Your Space for Spring: With Urban Outfitters Bedding Shop

Shop The Urban Outfitters Spring 2022 Bedding Shop

Spring is approaching (and depending on where you live, you might have already been enjoying some unseasonably warm weather). Most guys put away their fall and winter clothes and break out their shorts, tees, and polo shirts as March rolls around, but too many of us don’t do the same with our bedding. If you’re stuck in the habit of using the same set of sheets year-round, now’s the perfect time to change that, as the Urban Outfitters Spring 2022 Bedding Shop has something to spruce up any space. You can check out the entire collection for yourself, but we’ve gone ahead and picked out a few of our own favorites.

Washed Cotton Duvet Cover

Urban Outfitters Washed Cotton Duvet set in spring colors.

Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic, and it doesn’t get more timeless than solids. If you hold the maxim “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” close to your heart (whether Da Vinci actually said that or not, we’re inclined to agree with it), then the Washed Cotton duvet and sheet set is for you. It’s available in a nice variety of colors if basic white isn’t your thing, but for us, the bright, clean look of white linens is absolutely perfect for the spring and summer. You can add the pillowcases here.

Heathered Jersey Duvet Cover

Urban Outfitters Heathered Jersey Duvet Set in spring colors.

If you want your bed to feel as soft, cozy, and inviting as possible these T-Shirt Knit Heathered Jersey duvet covers are just the right fit. You can grab matching pillowcases separately, depending on the style you choose. But the fabric material and the design will go with just about any type of bedding imaginable. There are a couple of colors to choose from, giving you a degree of personalization in muted yet exquisite pastels. They’ll definitely transform your bedroom and make you want to spend a little more time under the sheets.

Myla Floral Duvet Set

Urban Outfitters Myla Floral Duvet Set in spring colors.

Many floral designs cleave towards the feminine side, but the Myla duvet set is distinctly masculine — especially in the charcoal color, which is our favorite of the five different shades available, although the yellow looks great too and is perfect for introducing a spring and summer vibe to your bedroom. The blooming floral print on the soft-woven cotton/polyester fabric is subtle and understated, adding some nice colors to the duvet and pillowcases without being too busy or loud. This is available as a set, so it includes the duvet as well as one or two pillowcases (one pillowcase with the twin/twin XL duvet, and two with the queen and king duvets).

Palmer Linen Duvet Cover

Urban Outfitters Palmer Linen Duvet Set in spring colors.

Turn your bedroom into a sanctuary with these crisp linen-blend duvet covers. They tone down the style, giving the space a minimalist feel, while still adding some color and personality. The textural weave is subtle yet pleasing to the eye, and feels phenomenal when you’re rubbing up against it. There are a few different colors and styles available, so feel free to choose your favorite!

Tindra Duvet Cover

The Trindra bedding set from the Urban Outfitters Spring 2022 Bedding Shop.

On the other hand, if you want to spice up your bedroom with some unique colors and patterns, the Tindra duvet cover is the perfect way to add some Bohemian flair to your sleeping space. The 100% cotton fabric sports a gorgeous motif on a background of rust red, burnt orange, and soft pinks, cultivating a warm, relaxing aesthetic that’s masculine and perfectly appropriate for the warmer seasons — although the coloration makes it great for autumn as well. The sham set is available here.

Tessie Bed Canopy

Urban Outfitters Tessie Bed Canopy Set in spring colors.

One of the best ways to make your bed a more relaxing and restful space is with a hanging canopy. The Tessie canopy, available in white or burnt orange, is just the thing to turn your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary. You can hang it from either a four-poster bed frame or from the ceiling (we imagine that, like most people, your bed frame probably doesn’t have posts), while adjustable ties let you easily raise the canopy when you want to let the light in or lower it when it’s time to enjoy some privacy or get intimate. It’s also made from 100% breathable cotton to keep things light and airy while you sleep.

The 16 best war movies of all time, ranked
From Inglourious Basterds to The Thin Red Line, there are the best war movies that you can stream now.
Tom Hanks, Tom Sizemore, and other actors playing as American soldiers riding a boat in "Saving Private Ryan."

War movies are among the most morally sticky films produced in Hollywood. While the best war movies go out of their way to reveal the violence and bloodshed that comes with any armed conflict, many can't help but valorize the men and women who fight in these wars. As a result, many movies about war end up glorifying war even if the creative voices behind the project didn't intend them to. In the best war movies, though, moral questions are never easily answered. Well, unless your war movie is a Star Wars movie. 
If you want black-and-white morality, this list of the best action movies on Netflix may better fit the bill. 

War movies, on the other hand, often speak to the way that violence breaks men, even if they believe in their cause. These war movies will shake you to your core, and remind you that humanity is capable of being messy and violent just as frequently as it is brave and valorous.

From The Tomorrow War to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, these are the best movies you can watch on Amazon Prime
how to watch the tomorrow war online

There's a reason action movies are so popular. The best action movies can thrill you with a dazzling combination of car chases, fight scenes, and special effects. The best action movies can also, and this is important, be wonderfully dumb. Indeed, the plot of an action movie is typically fairly unimportant, as long as the set pieces that get you from sequence to sequence are compelling enough. If you're looking for some great action, you don't need to look much further than these, which are some of the best action movies on Amazon Prime. Whether your goal is to find something gritty and realistic or something completely silly but joyous nonetheless, Prime has plenty of great movies to choose from.

For more great action movies, you can check out the best action movies on Netflix or the best action movies on Hulu.

The 11 best Sean Connery movies of all time
These films starring the Scottish actor rise above the rest
best sean connery movies ranked seanconnery1

Connery leans on the classic Bond Aston Martin on the set of Goldfinger.
If you're too young to remember the hype around Sean Connery, ask your parents or grandparents what it was like to be a movie fan during his era of stardom. There wasn't a person on the planet who didn't immediately think of Connery when listing the actors with the biggest screen presence. But what is it that makes this man so incredibly iconic? Could it be because he never changes his voice for movies because “the emotions should be the same, internationally”? Perhaps it’s because of his unique Scottish accent that any novice impersonator is sure to try and mimic. All we know for sure is: Connery’s James Bond is -- for an overwhelming majority -- the best and most memorable of all 007 iterations in history.
Though his big on-screen break was as the devilishly handsome and smooth secret agent, real fans know that Sean Connery was much more than that. Besides being a respectful, earnest, and successful actor, Connery spent his first 25 years -- starting at the age of 7 -- working manual labor jobs and eventually joining the Royal Navy at 16. Truly a man of many hidden talents, he also took dance lessons for 11 years, was offered a soccer contract with Manchester United, and also spent time working as a nude model for art students after being honorably discharged from the military.
There are so many reasons to love the late, great Sir Sean Connery, but we are here to praise him for his most memorable on-screen performances. Yes, James Bond will, of course, be mentioned, but we also bring out the later films in his career that made him so much himself. So mix yourself a vodka martini “shaken, not stirred” and help us celebrate the shining star that was Sean Connery.

Dr. No (1962)
