We love colour and pattern, but that doesn't mean we don't have a soft spot for timeless, wonderful white bed linen. Perhaps a choice that’s a little daunting for some – if we’d had a pound for every time we’ve heard ‘I’d love to have white bedding but…’ followed by a list of reasons (which almost always includes pets, children, concerns about keeping it whiter than white, or even clumsy partners who might spill coffee in bed), then we’d be sunning ourselves on a beach somewhere exotic.SO, let us talk you through why white bed linen is simply perfect and perhaps you’ll change your mind…
Simple, but never boring
Let’s address this straight away. White sheets are not boring. In fact, white is an incredibly versatile option to go for. Unlike coloured or patterned sheets, white goes with everything. If you want to make it more interesting then look for styles with subtle embroidery like our Violet White 100% Linen Bed Linen or Elsie White Bed linen, which adds some understated style, or go for our White Seersucker Bed Linen to add texture.
An easy update
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: if you’re looking for a quick bedroom update then changing your sheets is the quickest switch-up of all.. Popping crisp white cotton sheets on your bed gives the impression of a newly decorated room, without the expense of painting the walls (and we all know how hard it is to pick just the right shade – oh how easy it is to paint a room and then realise it’s just not quite what we were after). You'll be surprised at what a difference it makes.
Show off your favourite things
If you have a show-stopping bed or artwork that you adore then let that be the focal point of your room. White bedding gives you a fresh canvas to build up and add personality too. Dress your white bed linen with cosy cushions in pastels or bright colours. Add texture with throws and layer up to create interest. The simpler your bedding, the more dramatic you can be with the rest of the room.
If you're struggling to compromise when it comes to your bedroom decor, keep your linens white to keep the peace. The perfect balance between masculine and feminine decor. We also know that white bedding is the top choice when it comes to spare bedrooms, for this exact reason. You won't have a guest that's going to grumble if they're sleeping in simple, stylish white sheets. If you're desperate to add a hint of colour, try our Arundel Organic 400 Thread Count Bed Linen. A beautiful organic 100% cotton with a single navy embroidered cord - simply stunning.
Improve sleep with calming white
Ever wondered why when you stay in a hotel you leave thinking "that's the best night's sleep I've had in ages". Well, it's not a coincidence that most hotels use white bedding as their top choice. As well as being super chic, white bed linen has a calming effect on your mood, leaving you sleeping soundly. Replicate the luxury of hotel quality sheets in your own bedroom for quality zzz's every night with our 600 thread count white bedding for the ultimate hotel experience or for some subtle pattern choose our Luxury 600 Thread Count White Stripe Bed Linen.
Trends come and go, we know this more than anyone. Something that's a bestseller one year, can soon be replaced as another trend takes its place. However, what we do know is that our White 100% Linen bedding is a best seller week after week, year after year, proving that white sheets really are a timeless classic and never go out of fashion.
