16 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.

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.
