linen crush

Living Etc - - DESIGN / PROJECT -

Noth­ing says re­laxed, mod­ern lux­ury like pure linen bed­ding. ‘It feels snug and more lived-in than starched, ironed fab­rics,’ says char­lie Mar­shall, founder of Loaf (which sells the Lazy range in neu­tral shades). the fab­ric in­stantly adds warmth to a min­i­mal­ist room, so it’s ideal if you like your space to be calm and serene – just pick a sub­tly con­trast­ing wall colour. You can find linen ev­ery­where from high-street stores to high-end brands and you can use it all year round. ‘As it’s breath­able, it won’t stick to you on hot sum­mer nights and the soft fi­bres re­tain body heat in win­ter,’ says jes­sica Alexa Ma­son, founder of piglet. ‘tum­ble dry your linen for that evenly creased look.’
