Timeless Style Tips

22 Jan, 2024

What is timeless style?

Timeless style refers to style that is not influenced by current trends – pieces that are so beautiful they cannot be affected by changes in fashion or society. Timeless style for your home is bed linen and homeware pieces that are classic and elegant, yet functional and well made. Choosing timeless style means choosing pieces that are always relevant and that you’ll use for years without them ever looking dated. A key element of timeless style for your home is choosing quality products made from quality fabrics, that are designed to last. Read on to learn more about achieving timeless style.


Timeless style tips from our stylist Michelle

Michelle’s timeless approach to interiors sees her selecting quality pieces that will never date, to layer and accessorise as the seasons change. Read her easy to follow tips for creating enduring and beautiful style for your bed.

1. Start with a neutral foundation such as white or natural bed linen.
2. Add interest with textured throws in a similar palette.
3. For a little colour, choose easy seasonal swaps in patterned pillowcases and cushion covers.
4. Layer with quilts or lightweight blankets in coordinating hues for a layered and inviting look.
5. Quality matters - better quality fabrics will look better for longer.


Discover our Loft Linen bedding for timeless style

Styling your bed with linen bedding offers a timeless look that will take you effortlessly through every season. Our Loft Linen collections are crafted from European Flax certified fibre which is a sustainable and durable fabric. Another wonderful property of linen is the responsiveness of the fibre, which will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. And the more you launder your linen, the softer and more relaxed it becomes. Our Loft Linen duvet cover sets, pillowcases and sheets are available in a timeless palette of white and natural, perfect for styling with neutral pieces for a calm and classic look. Mix it up to celebrate the change in season by adding extra pillows to your bed in different hues of Loft Linen pillowcases. Add cool tones for summer and warm, earthy tones for winter.


Always choose quality

It’s worth investing in quality pieces to achieve timeless style. By doing a little research and purchasing thoughtfully, you will need to purchase less often. The hard working essentials of your bed are a good place to start. Choose well made sheets (check seams, thread count and fabric feel), quality duvet inners and pillow inners (do they contain responsibly sourced fill?) and sustainable pure cotton or linen bed linen. Once you’ve made your purchases, caring for bed linen and bedding essentials properly will keep them looking and feeling beautiful for longer.
