Hit the sack in style.
Weekend lie-ins just got even better. French, crumpled, stonewashed linens are undoubtedly having a moment this season, and frankly we’re surprised it’s taken this long.
Elegant, 100% linen bedding offers both comfort and style; stonewashed linens are probably the softest bedding that money can buy, and linens are naturally breathable, making it perfect for warmer evenings – as well as keeping you snug and toasty during winter.
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 that slightly 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 only water to grow, it is made from the flax plant – a renewable source that is fully biodegradable.
And it’s not all creams and taupes, either. Cool colours and soothing neutrals are just the tip of the iceberg for these bedding beauties. New collections are sprouting up in smokey greys, knocked-back indigo and even eye-catching Yves Klein blue.
There are even patterned 100% linen options available, like classic stripes.
Find this style at Soak & Sleep and Toast, or go for just a coloured border like Loaf’s Lazy Daze range.
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 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.
