How to Style Your 100% French Flax Linen Sheets

When it comes to transforming your bedroom into a calming sanctuary, styling plays an important part. The key is to invest in décor that's easy to care for and pleasing to the senses. And the beauty of 100% linen is that it looks best when it's crushed, crinkled and slightly undone—perfect for those days when trying to get your bed to hotel-style perfection just doesn't feel like a good use of your time (i.e. every day). 

So, here's how to execute the most perfectly styled bedroom with your linen sheets to make it look like it belongs on the front cover of an interiors magazine. 

How to style linen bed sheets

1. Add a throw

Whether for added warmth in cold weather or as a light alternative when it heats up, a throw thrown over the end of your bed or folded neatly makes a well-styled bed even more stylish.

Our 100% French Flax Linen throws are double the weight of our bed linen and come in our most popular colours.

2. Forgo the flat sheet (if you want)

A impeccably styled bed doesn't mean one with a top sheet. Our bedding sets include everything you need to sleep well—two pillowcases, a duvet cover and a fitted sheet in 100% linen—in one timeless (and timely) colour. This looks neat, simple and stylish—no add-ons necessary.

Traditionalist? That's fine, too. We offer flat sheets as a separate or as part of our bundle, which comes with everything you need to sleep well... and then some.

3. Freshen up your set with white separates

Every colour in our thoughtfully curated range works beautifully with clean, white linen pieces.

White pillowcases or a white fitted sheet will create a soft contrast with what you already have on your bed, while creating the illusion that your room is larger than it actually is. That's why we opt for white paint and white accessories, too, especially in smaller spaces.

4. Don't iron linen sheets

We said it before and we'll say it again: linen actually looks better when it's not ironed and when it's left to fall naturally. This will give your space a relaxed yet refined finish. It'll also free up the time you would've spent ironing it to do more important things.

5. Embrace bold colours

Whether you favour minimal or period interiors, you can dress up (or dress down) your space with a statement colour on your bed. Olive and Rosewater are great options, especially if your space is pared-back or minimal, while Ink and Sage work well if you're looking to bring warmth to your room in the cooler months.

6. Upsize your duvet cover

Invest in a King duvet cover if you'd like your room to feel cosy - and let's face it, who doesn't? The overhang makes the bed look ultra-inviting and is especially perfect if you share the bed with a blanket thief.

Our Queen Special sets include two pillowcases, a Queen fitted sheet and a King duvet cover to cater to this styling solution. Once you're immersed in a beautiful, oversized linen-clad duvet, you'll understand why.

Now you've got the styling down pat, we've answered all your questions about our 100% flax linen bedding here.
