INSPIRING AUTUMN!

INSPIRING AUTUMN!

By Camilla Swart

The months of April, May and June are technically known as ‘autumn’ in South Africa; characterised by cooler mornings and evenings, with lovely temperate days. 

Autumn is a good time to assess your home décor. Take note of the colour and décor trends, adding or subtracting key pieces to update your style for the year ahead.  Cooler days mean more energy, which translates into creativity and enterprise.

Linen Drawer is not lagging when it comes to this. This is a great time of year to introduce new products and designs, so without too much preamble we introduce our new embroidery designs!

LIVING CORAL

Posted in Decor and Style, General Information

By Camilla Swart

Colour of the year 2019

Living Coral has been chosen as the Pantone colour of the year, sparking controversy because there is so little coral left that is alive! However, as we are optimists at Linen Drawer, we believe that the colour, and any discussion of the shade can only draw attention to the plight of our coral reefs.

A TIME TO DINE, A TIME TO RELAX

A TIME TO DINE, A TIME TO RELAX

By Camilla Swart

The September equinox, dated this year on 22 September, marked the beginning of spring in the Southern Hemisphere. In a nutshell, we are officially experiencing Spring in the southern hemisphere!

From this day onwards, the days grow longer and the nights shorter. This means that we can venture outside to enjoy long twilight dinners, rise earlier for sparkling spring breakfasts, and enjoy full sunny luncheons, all hopefully al fresco.

DUCK DOWN THIS WINTER!

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

Winter isn’t coming – it’s here already, and with it the downright chilly weather that you either love or hate. 

Personally, I don’t like winter, and if you are similar to me, and suffer from ‘coldness,’ then I have just the product to keep you warm and comfortable all winter. Our grannies knew what they were doing when they layered on the eiderdowns (very plushy feather quilts) on our beds in winter.  Those eiderdowns were wonderfully warm and kept out the worst winter chills, but were bulky and cumbersome to use.

BLANKET CHOICES – HOW TO?

Posted in Decor and Style


By Camilla Swart

Does it really matter what type of blanket you sleep under?  At Linen Drawer we say “It most definitely does!” 

Our mission is to increase your sleep comfort; therefore, it is with pleasure that we would like to assist you in choosing a blanket for winter.

A BLANKET AFFAIR

Posted in Decor and Style

Your bed could become a productive unit in your everyday life! All you need is the right ‘equipment’ and attitude. Winter is the right time to cultivate that attitude. Spending more time in thoughtful contemplation under our wonderful blankets and throws. There are so many everyday tasks that can be done effectively from the comfort of your bed!

By ‘equipment’ I mean bedding and blankets. In winter, the fabulous Linen Drawer bedding takes second place to the Linen Drawer blankets. They occupy pride of place on your bed and contribute absolute comfort and warmth throughout the winter months.

A MONTH OF MOTHERS?

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

May is the month dedicated to mothers and motherhood. Mother’s Day falls in the middle of the month (13 May) this year, and we would like to dedicate the whole month to mothers.

By ‘mothers’ we naturally mean any woman who has had a nurturing influence in your life. Apart from my mother, who certainly influenced my life, I can count a handful of other women whose benevolent care shaped, and still affects, my life.

HOW TO LAUNDER YOUR BED LINEN

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

Laundry is a fact of life – like taxes and death, it spares no-one. Unless you are one of the fortunate few who can say that they never do laundry, this article might help you understand how best to care for your bed linen.

Linen Drawer attaches a wash care label to all bed linen. This shows the size, the fabric composition and the washing instructions. The washing instructions are the result of in depth knowledge of the fabric – not just something dreamed up by Linen Drawer, and for best results, should be adhered to as closely as possible when laundering the bed linen.

HOW TO CHOOSE BED LINEN?

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

Confronted by the mind boggling array of bedding and bed linen options available, what motivates your choice and how can you be sure it’s the best product for you?

At Linen Drawer we pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of bed linen, and what types of fabric are suitable for different climates and situations. A quick aside: We do not recommend polyester or polyester blend fabrics…ever, as they are not perfectly comfortable and do not have the healthy-sleep properties of pure cotton or pure linen bedding.

Moving On Swiftly?

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

Anyone who has moved house, flat or business will agree when I say that moving is an emotional and stressful time.  The warm glow of anticipation, the bright dream of new home/office/business premises, all fade day by day – whittled away by planning, planning and still more planning. 

Linen Drawer and Linen Drawer Manufacturing are moving premises in the last week of February/ early March. We have planned the move very carefully, in order to ensure a seamless transition and keep our clients’ orders rolling out, and hope that the execution is as meticulous as the planning.  Our customers’ requirements always come first, and our intention is minimum disruption and a smooth transfer from one location to the next.

NEW YEAR, NEW COLOURS, NEW YOU

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

This year has started with the Colour of the Year being pinned as Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet.  It is a complex shade of purple, towards the cooler end of the colour spectrum.  It suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, what lies ahead, and discoveries beyond where we are now.

Thank you for everything

Posted in Decor and Style

I look forward to writing this blog every year.  This is where the team from Linen Drawer express our sincere gratitude towards our clients, suppliers and co-workers.

Gratefulness has been proven to have physical benefits as well as the more obvious mental and spiritual benefits. 

Showing and experiencing gratitude is good for you.

Recent research has shown that people who express more gratitude have fewer aches and pains, better sleep and stronger mental clarity.

Specially For You

Posted in Decor and Style

Linen Drawer would like to spoil you this year over Christmas.  We would like to make your gift shopping easy peasy!  Have a look at the wonderful services we offer in customising gifts for you.

A special gift says “I care” when it has been personalised with embroidery, satin stitch or hemstitching.  Popular gift options are monogrammed pillowcases, towels, and bedding.  We can match the colour of the monogram with a beautiful row of satin stitching. Embroidered laundry bags are very popular and can have lovely designs added to make them a personal and special gift.

Christmas Joy

Posted in Decor and Style

It is easy to become totally silly when speaking about Christmas. There is so much joy and anticipation associated with the festive season that I need to focus my mind on the sensible to get the best out of this joyous season.
