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.

Scatter Style Around

Changing the style and colour scheme of your home is difficult if you don’t have the time and the budget to invest in such an exercise.  How often we wish for a magic wand to freshen and brighten our sitting rooms, bedrooms and other living areas.

Soulful Shades

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

How would you choose colours for new products?  The array of tones and shades is mind boggling and predicting what will be suitable for bed linen is a daunting task.  Well, at Linen Drawer we aren’t easily daunted and, deciding to add colour to our range of Egyptian cotton percale, we set about making the choice in a methodical and analytical manner.

Trends identified were Plants/Nature, Nautical/Sea, Opulence, New Nostalgia and Traditions Reworked.  Colours associated with these were varied but the emphasis throughout was on deep natural colours. The inspiration was taken from the plants, water, stones, minerals and animals that surround us.

Put a spring in your step

 Put a spring in

By Camilla Swart

September in the Southern Hemisphere is all about spring. Spring is in the air. Sometimes it is a chilly spring, and our optimism about summer’s arrival is quenched by rain showers and snow.

How to welcome spring into your home?  Easy, have a look at your mattress! We have all seen mattress advertisements of the gazelle-like leaps out of bed. Incredibly these can become reality with a few basic checks.

Welcoming Johannesburg

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

We set off early on Sunday 6 August on our journey to Decorex Johannesburg 2017.  A very long drive lay ahead – symbolic of our journey to Decorex exhibiting in total.  Fortunately, no murders were committed and no speed fines incurred in the course of the drive, and soon we were concentrating on our Tom-Tom’s directions to the apartment we had rented.

The two days that preceded the opening of the exhibition at Gallagher Convention centre were frantic.  There was much Gautrain’ing, Uber’ing and shopping.  Hard work and amazing co-operation from our agents and furniture suppliers characterised these pre-show days.  The absolute dedication from Johann and Ernie du Toit, Ronel Currin and the teams from Blockhouse, Ultimate Mattress, Persepolis and Incanda who helped us set up the stand.  The result was FABULOUS!  Our products were showcased beautifully and the stand at Decorex drew very favourable comments and many compliments.

Decorex - Our Journey to Johannesburg

Posted in Decor and Style

 By Camilla Swart

My to-do lists have been made since we exhibited at the Cape Town Decorex show, but I think that this is going to be a very different experience from the Cape Town exhibition. We had follow up, post-mortem and strategy meetings in order to clear our minds and prepare for the Johannesburg Decorex show.

Decorex will be held at the Gallagher Convention centre and stretches across many halls. The Linen Drawer stand is in Hall 5 and we are in stand L24. It is a corner stand so we are not easy to miss.

Embracing our Dark Side

This year Linen Drawer has the opportunity to exhibit at Decorex.  We will be exhibiting in both Cape Town and Johannesburg.  It would be a proper understatement to say that we are excited about this.  We are vibrating, apprehensive, scared, unsure, vibrating again, excited, shivering, scared, determined and losing our collective minds!  Why?  Well, we decided not to employ the services of ‘stand builder/planner’ but to go it alone.  Truly a venture into the dark side….

Bring me Poppies in August

Posted in Decor and Style



 

 

 

 

 

 

Poppies are the symbolic birth flower of the month of August and they represent beauty, strength, love, marriage and family.  As a wife and mother this resonates with me, and as a woman I really like the ‘strength and love” part of the previous statement.

Feeling Blue Seeing Red

Posted in Decor and Style


The colours for 2016 are Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue – a beautiful pink and a soft hazy blue.  It is unusual that two colours are nominated as colours of the year, but the panellists agreed on two for this year.

Making your bedroom seem new…

Posted in Decor and Style

linenHaving bedding that is of superb quality and lasts extra long, sometimes make it seem harder to give you’re bedroom a face lift. Why would you buy new bedding if it’s not neccesary. So you find yourself standing in your bedroom and would love to give it a fresh look.  However, you’re bedlinen is still fine and looking good. You also might not have the budget to redo your whole room at once. What to do? Throw in the proverbial towel……………………..?  We think not!
