Crisp, Clean Whites: Linen at its Summertime Best

There’s something about summer that calls for clean, crisp whites. And whether in your home or wardrobe, linen looks at its beautiful best in white. Although pure, natural linen is a fabulous all-year round fabric, it’s during the hotter months and paler hues that it really comes into its own. From tucking a cool, comfortable linen dress into your vacation packing to transforming your bedroom into a haven of peace and tranquility, linen is your summer friend. We’ve gathered some of our white linen favourites for this post so you can see just what we mean. If you’re looking for the perfect white bathroom towels, need some new table linens to brighten up your dining room or want to fall into a bed covered with light, cloud-soft bedlinen, we’ve got you covered. And because all our linen can be machine washed you don’t need to worry about keeping your whites looking pristine. Here’s our white edit. Soak up the calm and dive into a world of Scandi-inspired minimalist, quiet, elegant linen that will see you happily through the next few months and well beyond. A white linen jacket

We love the simple cut of our white linen jacket, and the details like the patch pockets and natural horn buttons add extra charm. It’s feminine and understated, and designed to give a flattering silhouette. Structured enough to lift a workwear outfit yet relaxed enough to wear over a t-shirt with jeans, this jacket is such a great investment for summer. White linen bedlinen

Our optical white linen bedlinen is one of our enduringly popular sellers. And for good reason. Your bedroom should feel calm and peaceful, a place where you can dream and sleep and escape the busyness of life. White is the perfect way to achieve this feel – there’s a reason that so many spas and places of relaxation use white fabric and paints. A new set of luxurious yet simple linen bedsheet and duvet cover is an easy way to bring some of this stillness into your home. You can add a complementary linen throw in muted tones for those chillier evenings, or just keep things pared-back and clear. White linen curtains/ drapes

Allow the summer light to softly play around your home by fitting white linen curtains. They will keep out some of the sunlight but let in enough to fill your rooms with a sense of summer and brightness. Our linen curtains come with tie or rod pocket fittings so you can choose just the right finish. Leave slightly long so they drape into gentle puddles and elongate your windows. White linen dress

Cut as a simple, sweet summer tunic, our white Alice dress would make a charming addition to your summer wardrobe. White reflects heat so is a great choice for taking to hot countries on vacation, or for just pottering around at home over the summer months. The cut is flowy and comfortable whilst still retaining a flattering shape. We know you love women’s clothes with pockets so you’ll find two subtle pockets at the sides, as well as a same-colour zigzagged seam up the back to add a bit of uniqueness to the dress. Perfect on its own with pumps or sandals, or under a cardigan on cooler days. White linen tablecloth

Dress your table for summer with a clean white linen tablecloth. Our stonewashed linen table linen is soft yet durable, meaning you can use it for everyday as well as special gatherings and occasions. Too good to hide away in a cupboard, drape this over your dining table and add some freshly picked flowers in jars and light a few white candles for a stunningly easy table that looks pulled-together without being too try-hard. For a pop of colour you could use linen napkins in accent colours, or go for a minimalist monotone look with all-whites. White waffle linen bath towels

A neat pile of soft white linen towels instantly turns a bathroom into a sanctuary. Our waffle weave linen bath towels are highly absorbent yet lightweight, which means they dry quickly and are easy to store. Bring a sense of peace to your morning shower or evening bath with a pure white towel that’s also kind to even the most sensitive skin.   The secret to a calming environment is simple really: just stick to white and you’ll be alright.
