How to Style Your Linen
Words by Nicole Singh
Forget what you thought you knew about styling your bedroom. The beauty of linen is that it looks best when it's crushed, crinkled and slightly undone — and these are our essential commandments, when it comes to keeping our linen looking it's best in-situ.
1. You can forgo the flat sheet (if you want)
A impeccably-styled bed doesn't mean one with a top sheet. Our bedding sets include everything you need to sleep well— two pillowcases, a duvet cover and a fitted sheet in 100% linen — in one timeless (and timely) colour. This looks neat, simple and stylish — no add-ons necessary.
Traditionalist? That's fine, too. We offer flat sheets in 100% Flax Linen — of course — as a separate or as part of our Bed Threads Flat Bundle, which comes with everything you need to sleep well... and then some.
2. Freshen up your set with white separates
Every colour in our thoughtfully curated range works beautifully with clean, white linen pieces. White pillowcases or a white fitted sheet will create a soft contrast with what you already have on your bed, while creating the illusion that your room is larger than it actually is. That's why we opt for white paint and white accessories, too, especially in smaller spaces.
3. Don't iron linen sheets
We said it before and we'll say it again: linen actually looks better when it's left to do it's thing; when it's not ironed, and when it's left to fall naturally. This will give your space a relaxed yet refined finish... and will free up the time you would've spent ironing it to do more important things... like style your side-table, just as an idea.
4. Embrace bold colours
Whether you favour minimal or period interiors, you can dress up (or dress down!) your space with a statement colour on your bed. Olive and Rosewater are great options, especially if your space is pared-back or minimal, while Ink and Sage work well if you're looking to bring warmth to your room in the cooler months.
5. If you have a Queen bed, style it will a King Duvet
Invest in a King duvet cover if you'd like your room to feel cosy... and let's face it, who doesn't? The overhang make the bed look ultra-inviting and is perfect, especially if you share the bed with a blanket thief. Our Queen Special sets include two pillowcases, a Queen fitted sheet and a King duvet cover to cater to this styling solution... our only advice? Don't sleep on it. Once you're immersed in a beautiful, oversized linen-clad duvet, you'll understand why.
