10 of the Most Popular Linen Colour Combinations to Help Make Your Decision Easier

We already know that linen sheets are just about the best thing to put on your bed: durabletemperature regulating, soft and light, it’s kind to skin and helps you sleep like a dream. But when there are such a wide variety of colours to choose from, how do you decide which shade to choose?

You could look towards your overall interior style or even your star sign to figure out which colours to opt for, or you can scroll down to find out which colour combinations are our most popular. 

While we think all of our tranquil colours — by themselves or paired with one, two or however many other colours — can look beautiful in any bedroom, these colour combinations have constantly proven to be the most sought-after and admired on Instagram. So, be inspired and take your pick.

10 Most Popular Linen Bedding Colour Combinations

1. Rust and Terracotta

This is probably our most in-demand combination. Rust feeds warmth and energy into any setting to create a cosy, homely environment. It's reminiscent of balmy summer nights or wintry evenings spent fireside, while Terracotta is an earth-toned, luxuriously rich colourway inspired by light clay ceramics that will lighten even the darkest of rooms. Together, they're a match made in heaven.

 

2. Olive and Sage

ICYMI, green is in and if you can't choose between our two green hues Olive and Sage, why not get both? Think of them as two peas in a pod. 

 

3. Oatmeal and White

You simply can't go wrong with this minimal combination that will complement any space — an especially good selection if you're renting and find yourself regularly moving.

 

4. White and Sage

Fresh and light like a cooling breathe mint, this combination will transport you to the seaside. We honestly cannot get over how artist Zoe Young has styled the two in her home, which you can step inside of here.

 

5. Oatmeal and Terracotta

All you need to create an inviting bedroom (minus the hefty cost and effort) is linen sheets in Oatmeal and Terracotta, plants and an artwork. 

6. Olive and Oatmeal 

Whether the vibe if your interiors is vintage and rustic or minimal and clean, these two natural bedding colours will suit your bedroom. 

 

7. Pinstripe and White

These shades go together like salmon and dill or Thelma and Louise. Clean, minimal and bright, they're the perfect backdrop for a bedroom full of the smooth lines of Scandi-minimalism, and will complement the hygge vibes you have throughout your house.

 

8. Olive and Mineral

Calling all Mid-Century Modernists: meet Olive and Mineral, your new BFFs. We guarantee this mixture of shades will provide some of that 50s-era sophistication into your home.

 

9. Turmeric and Oatmeal

From the bedrooms in interior designer Simone Haag's holiday home to ceramicist Teya Kepila's Brooklyn Studio, these two colours continue to standout (for good reason, of course). 

 

10. Rust and Sage

This image of Ben Alcaraz's plant-filled oasis, clad in Rust and Sage linens, was our fifth most loved bedroom post on Instagram in 2020. Need we say more?
