Pure linen bedding is known for its rumpled, textural feel and relaxed sensibility, however, it can also offer a more tailored look with the right styling. Taking a considered approach to colours, patterns, weight and layering, you can achieve neat sophistication while still enjoying the signature laidback ease and luxurious tactility that makes linen so appealing.
Begin with a fresh linen flat sheet as a base, which provides an essential layer between harder-to-wash blankets and bedspreads. From here, add a light, patterned layer, or our sumptuous Flocca Linen Blanket, for texture and interest. A neat tuck or a flat layer pulled firmly across the bed helps to further create a classic, tailored feel.
The top layer, whether it be a quilt, coverlet or light duvet, serves both a practical and decorative purpose, acting as a warm layer when needed or folded towards the end of the bed when not in use, while offering volume in all seasons. To complete the look, a texture-rich throw provides stylistic freedom and an elegant finishing touch.
Pillows should be simple yet stacked, with cushions in patterns or accent hues. Keep your colour scheme in the same family, as seen with the white freshness of Ayrton blended beautifully with warm, stone grey hues. This tonal palette lends a calm, cohesive look that provides an adaptable base for hints of rich colour or an understated stripe detail.

This classic, restrained approach has been very popular with US designers such as Los Angeles-based Amber Interiors, who feature our Flocca Linen Blanket in Sable as part of a refined yet inviting bedscape. These warm, contemporary spaces demonstrate the versatility of pure linen bedding, with soft, clean lines and gentle tucking lending a look of quiet luxury.
In this serene, sun-dappled bedroom by Indiana design firm Heidi Woodman Interiors, our duvet in Sable is paired with our pure linen sheets and Flocca blanket in Ayrton, while pillows in both hues are stacked for plushness and volume. These two neutrals are used to similar effect by San Diego-based South Harlow Interiors, with our duvet, coverlet and European pillows neatly layered for a look that is fresh and timeless.
