It's a regular thing for me to peruse the internet and stores for the best bed linen, I am not sure why but it's actually a thing. I am always on the hunt for great bed linen, sheets, doona cover and cushions. I really can't get enough and there are so many great Australian brands out there I thought I should highlight, in my opinion the top 10. I am a firm believer in having a rotation of four different sets of linen, for a few reasons.
- Change is as good as a holiday. Changing over your bedsheets can give your bedroom a whole new look and feel, making it fresh, inspiring and inviting.
- Different seasons, different feels. The cooler months call for flannel sheets if you are from Melbourne and the warmer month's I prefer to dress my bed with linen. Depending on the season and time of year, your bed sheets must adjust accordingly!
- When guests come over, it's kind of nice to have a cool set of bedsheets to throw on the old blow up mattress (I don't have a spare bed).
So in no particular order, here are my hot favourites:
AURA BY TRACIE ELLIS
I've never looked through the Aura range and not wanted a set of bed sheets and new doona cover. They really are a brand that cover's the "Something for Everyone" bracket from bright bold colours, to something more subtle. I currently own two Aura quilt sets and they are on high rotation in my house. They get 5 stars for variety and quality.
This super cute duo of gals sustainably produce all of their bed linen in my home town of Melbourne, Australia. Oh gosh, AND they take their inspiration from their travels in South America which really speaks to me. I love their colour choices, patterns and style.
There's no way I can talk about bed linen without mentioning Australia's favourites - Adairs. These guys have been in the business for years and I still love them. Their current range includes a new collection by Rebecca Judd loves, and it's divine! I admire their quality and commitment and they stock a vast range for all your bedding needs.
Arro's collection of homewares is SUPER cute, and how could it not be, designed by the ever so cool Beci Orpin. The Arro range oozes a very cool quirky and colourful style that will tap into any design and colour loving heart.
I personally swear by linen bedsheets, and in particular from Major Minor! Currently my bed at home adorns some navy and some coral from their range. As I mentioned before, linen bed sheets are so delightful for climbing into in the warmer months of the year. The texture makes me want to stay in bed all day.
Firstly, let's hear it for Pizza in bed! (hooray!) And secondly I feel like Kip & Co are on everyone's top bed linen list. If you want colour and personality in the bedroom then these are your guys. Their collections are always full of new bright patterns and now, amazing textures. Imagine a velvet doona cover! This is officially on my shopping / wish list.
Hunting For George are probably the instagram account I follow most religiously and continuously like ALL of their photos! Amen to their stylist, this is right up my alley. And oh - the bed sheet are again, so so cool! They have a sweet subtle style that is injected into their bed linen and it's not too in-your-face but it's a bit of something. I find it hard to buy sheets with no prints on them, these guys are perfect for adding a touch of colour but not too much.
I've never slept in bamboo sheets, but this image certainly makes me want to. Suku are a stunning brand that again supports sustainability and connecting the global community under eithical fair trade practices. "Real people with real stories have skillfully handcrafted each product, weaving their lives into our own. These are more than just decorative pieces; they symbolize a place of tranquility where you can escape and dream." - If this isn't enough to make me want to buy these bed sheets then I don't know what is. Again I have heard a lot about these guys and they are officially on the wish list.
There you have it, my favourites. Are there any I've missed in your opinion? I'd love to hear about some from abroad?
