Weekend lie-ins just got a whole lot better. French, crumpled, stonewashed linens are undoubtedly having a moment, and frankly we're surprised it's taken this long.
Elegant, 100% linen bedding offers both comfort and style for your bedroom.
Stonewashed linens are probably thesoftest bedding that money can buy, and linens are naturally breathable, making it perfect for balmy summer evenings – as well as keeping you snug and toasty during winter.
We can't think of a better way to catch some zeds this season.
They are wonderfully low maintenance too; you can leave the iron in the cupboard as linen bedding sets are designed to look best when left to dry naturally.
We think thatslightly crumpled look only adds to the relaxed look. Well, that's what we're telling ourselves anyway.
Linen bedding even ticks the eco-friendly box. Needing less water to grow than other crops, it is made from the flax plant – a renewable source that is fully biodegradable.
Find expert tips for designing the perfect bedroom.
Cool colours and soothing neutrals are just the tip ofthe iceberg for these bedding beauties.
As beautiful as they are, it's not all whites, greys and soft tones, either.
New collections are popping up in forest greens, knocked-back indigo and even eye-catching Yves Klein blue.
There are patterned 100% linen options available too, like classic stripes.
Mix and match pale shades – think powdery pink, palest duck egg, French and dove grey – or go tone-on-tone with rich teals and midnights.
For moody shades, Society Limonta, Rockett St George, H&M and Secret Linen Store are all great first ports of call for stonewashed linen with attitude.
Or offset a dark hue with a crisp white to achieve a brighter look.
