There is nothing that says you’re nailing this whole adulting thing like having your bed linen on point. We’re talking the kind of matching bed linen that’s straight out of a Pinterest dream. We’ll admit it; we’re all guilty of spying on our besties bed sheets and can’t even put into words how exciting it is when you see your significant other’s bedroom for the first time and they have display pillows AND regular pillows—or is that just us?
To help you adult in 2017 we rounded up the best in the business when it comes to making bedroom dreams come true (mind out of the gutter please). This summer is officially the perfect time to skip that music festival, cancel those beach plans and stay home in a bed made up with soft linens from one of these genius designers.
Kip & Co
Linens from Melbourne’s Kip & Co are for the exuberant colour-lover in all of us. The founders are a genius team of three, drawing inspiration from fashion, design and whatever else takes their creative fancy. Let’s just say, they’ve got a good eye.
A quilt cover with peach flowers on pale pink reverses to teal flowers on navy. Marbled pink, blue and marigold that looks like you’re going to sleep in the middle of a killer sunset. Kip & Co is all about artful pattern clashing, and it’s oh so good.
Feliz means happy in Spanish, and that’s exactly how we feel about Feliz Home’s divine screen-printed, organic cotton bed linens. It’s a humble operation. Founders Mel and Jane screen-print designs in their Geelong studio, using some of the freshest, most restful colours and patterns. Feliz recently collaborated with artist Maria Flores to create graphic, colourful monoprint-style bedding.
Some do prints and brights in summer, whilst some love classic, soft-toned linen. Cultiver’s bedding is 100 per cent linen woven from European flax. It’s prewashed for softness and just a little rumpled so it looks chic and slept-in.
Colours are classic: white, navy, lavender, blush and khaki green, and make curling up with a stack of trashy magazines irresistible.
Major Minor Sydney (+Shibori)
Major Minor’s linen bedding is totally dreamy. Forget about bright colours. These solid-coloured sheets have a subtle luxe that’s accented by the occasional blue on white pin stripe.
If saturated colour and pattern is your thing, Major Minor collaborated with Shibori Textiles on a limited edition collection of linen throws. These throws are hand bound and dyed in rich indigo before the designs are printed on Belgian flax linen. With artfully frayed edges and a unique dye pattern, every throw is a one-off and therefore totally covetable.
We’ve looked at linen solids, linen stripes and shibori linen. What’s left but colour blocking? Scottie’s bed linens are made for lazy long weekends, lazy Sunday mornings, and lazy regular days when you text your boss saying you can’t come in, you’ve got something super contagious.
Every linen set comes in two colours: dove grey and white, faded, fiery orange Bird of Paradise and blush, navy and cream. So pretty you guys.
That’s summer bedding sorted. Now you just need to add the two best things the internet has ever brought us—Netflix and doughnut delivery—and you’ve got yourself lazy summer perfection.
