Step Into the Blue: Beautiful Linens to Update Your Summer Home

summer house at the beach

In the summer heat nothing is as refreshing as a dip in cool, deep water. The same goes for your home – a splash of blue or marine colour adds a sense of calm and freshness. We offer a variety of beautiful linen homewares in this colour range so you can update and invigorate your space.

Associated with the skies, seas and wide open spaces, blue brings depth and feelings of expansiveness. It is a soft, cool colour and works well with pinks, mustards, neutrals and pale greens. You don’t need to completely redecorate to bring some of these lovely qualities into your home. A fresh set of bedlinen, plump new linen cushions, a cosy throw, some lightweight summer curtains – all of these accents will enhance your space.

From ultra-comfy bedlinens to gorgeous table linens, let’s dive into a world of blue.

Blue-coloured bedlinens for a great night’s sleep

As the bed is usually the largest piece of furniture in a bedroom you can completely change the feel by simply adding a new duvet cover and pillowcases. We always recommend linen bedlinen because it helps regulate your body temperature, keeping you cool in summer and toasty in winter. It’s also hard wearing and machine washable, so you can use it all the time and it just keeps on getting softer.

Choose our melange blue bedlinen set for a deliciously tranquil vibe, like falling softly into a calm, clear lake. This set is made from super soft prewashed linen and comes in a duvet cover, pillows, flat sheet and fitted sheet. Mix and match with our pinstripe or ticking stripe  bedlinen for added texture and interest, or keep it simple and unified with all pieces in one design. For a darker, deeper blue opt for the same set in indigo.

Spruce up your living room – the easy way

For summer in the living room we love curtains that keep out the heat but still allow some light to come in. Our gorgeous linen curtains do just that. For a truly light, summery look choose our white based indigo panel curtains. With rod pocket fixtures they create a clean, uncluttered feel with added vintage appeal. The same style in our white and blue Tuscany colourway feature a lighter blue.

Add complementary linen cushion covers in our indigo natural multistripe for a pulled-together aesthetic. And because our cushion covers are machine washable you can use them outside for stylish picnics with some added luxury. A white linen throw will complete the update, refreshing and reviving your living room and making it a welcoming, calm space for everyone to enjoy.

A simple bathroom makeover

A supersoft set of fresh linen bath towels will turn your everyday bathroom into a covetable space of relaxation. Our huckaback towels look so good we like to display them on open shelves or hanging on hooks. They also make excellent beach towels because they’re quick-drying, ultra-absorbent and lightweight.

Go for matching colours or mix things up with a selection of indigo, blue and marine blue for a truly nautical look.

Kitchen blues you’ll love

For cosy summer dinners or outdoor eating, our off-white blue Tuscany tablecloth is as happy on your table as it is outside doubling as a picnic blanket. Pair with matching napkins or use plain off-white or deeper blue for contrast.

For a more informal feel, try our linen Philippe table runner in off-white blue or indigo. Or set your best crockery with our blue-white or indigo multistripe placemats to elevate morning brunch or a home- cooked lunch with friends.
