Summer is synonymous with many things: strolls in wildflower-covered fields, sunshine-drenched cocktails on rooftop bars and, of course, linen. From flowing curtains to dinner napkins, the breathable, minimalist, and effortlessly elegant fabric just makes sense to have around the home once the weather warms up. It makes a nice switch from the cozy wool pillows and heavy velvet curtains that reign supreme during the winter months, in any case.
There’s a plethora of stylish linen pieces available to shop from our selection of the best home decor stores – most of which are far less expensive than they actually look! So I’ve gone through them with a fine-tooth comb to curate a list of the most elegant linen accessories which will really elevate your home’s decor for the summer.
These classic linen napkins will suit basically any style of table decor. They come in four soft shades and have a simple-yet-elegant design.
Light, summery materials doesn't have to be synonymous with neutral shades! I adore the block color design of this statement tablecloth - it'll do all the hard styling work for you.
This colorful throw pillow is really easy to stack up with other styles. The subtle sage green design would look beautiful layered with other pillows on a sofa or bed.
For a minimal twist on the classic plaid tablecloth design, I'd recommend this cream and black linen-blend option. It's far less expensive than it actually looks!
And these matching napkins really complete the set! They have a subtly summery vibe that will take you through to early fall.
In other linen tablecloth news, this floral one simply screams summer. I love the watercolor design which gives it a rustic feel, the handmade piece is made of the highest quality linen and feels incredibly soft to the touch.
Swap your current heavy velvet curtains for these breathable, flowy linen ones that will ripple in the summer breeze. They'll let far more of that gorgeous summer light in!
And if you're after a little more coverage, this stylish linen roll-up blind makes a lighter alternative to your black-out blind. It'll still block out a decent amount of light, but thanks to the ribbon tie detail will look effortlessly elegant while doing so.
These rose print napkins are block-printed by hand, making each one feel unique. They would make the perfect floral addition to a colorful tablescape.
Striped details are everywhere at the moment, and this linen throw pillow is no exception. It'll add an on-trend feel to your sofa or bed set-up.
Speaking of striped homeware, this breathable linen duvet cover will keep your bed looking and feeling cool. The nautical stripes make it the perfect choice for summer, if you ask me.
