In love with linen
September 2, 2011
I have developed a real crush on linen recently. In a similar way to my love for enamelware, linen is beautiful, useful and long-lasting – basically all the elements you want from something that will become part of your home and passed through the generations. Maybe I sound like an old romantic but wouldn't you want to sink into these deliciously soft sheets and imagine you are eating breakfast in a lovely french chateau? We've got some great PR shots from The Linen Works here, but I think linen really does create the feel of rustic elegance that so many of us covet.
Of course, as with all the loveliest materials, it isn’t cheap. I adore the bedding from The Linen Works and Toast – two places I’d be stocking up from regularly if I had the budget – but luckily there’s a bargain source around too. H&M! I wasn't too keen on the baby blue and sugary pink, so I opted for white and am eagerly awaiting delivery of the double duvet set next week.
