In Bed

In Bed is a Sydney based bed linen brand, whose range is made up of classic, earthy colours in 100% linen. In addition to their base palette, seasonal tones and patterns are added throughout the year. We love their scrunchy stonewashed linen, in shades of oatmeal and tobacco.

In Bed’s director, Pip Vassett shares her top tip for a good night’s sleep :

“A day well spent. Whether that means a hard days work or a long, lazy Sunday with friends”.

Melbourne based Scottie Store believe that the best design is functional, playful and instantly familiar. Their collections balance quality French linen sheeting, with on-trend colour palettes, and local artist collaborations! We love their  collaboration with local artist Lauren Cassar aka Mirador.

Scottie’s Gemma Leslie shares her top tip for a good night’s sleep:

“Invest in bedding you love, be it ours or someone else’s. The peace of mind you get from climbing into something you love and that feels familiar goes along way to a peaceful night’s rest.”

Hale Mercantile Co Linen

We see linen from Melbourne-based  Hale Mercantile Co. in many of the fanciest homes we photograph… Kara Rosenlund and Chyka Keebaugh are fans! Their entire linen collection is grown, spun, woven and sewn in Europe, resulting in a range that strikes the perfect balance a relaxed aesthetic, and a truly luxury finish.

Hale Mercantile’s top tip for a good night’s sleep:

“A wonderful night’s sleep requires luxe linen sheets as the main ingredient, accompanied by fresh lavender in the bedroom… and a wonderfully plump, soft eye mask to assist you with entering the abyss!”

Sheridan

Sheridan are one of the most established names in linen in Australia – and for good reason! For over 50 years, Sheridan have provided luxury sleeping experiences to Australian dreamers.

Sheridan’s top tip for a good night’s sleep:

“We spend one third of our lives sleeping, so there’s no greater investment than quality bed linen. One of the contributing factors to a good night’s sleep is creating the perfect bed for you. Everyone has different preferences on how they like to sleep, so understanding your needs is important. Once you discover what works best for your body, you’ll wake up feeling more rested and rejuvenated than ever.”

Kip&Co

Bedding from Melbourne’s Kip&Co is always fun, bright and cheerful! Their new ‘Sojourn’ range is inspired by extended, idyllic getaways, full of adventure, charm and the unknown. Best known for their joyful, clashing prints and patterns, this latest range is thick with foliage and florals, layered up with tones of peach nougat, lychee, and coconut… sounds almost edible!?

Kip&Co’s top tip for a good night’s sleep:

“Natural fibres, a bedroom that inspires and calms you, no phone, super comfy pjs (or just nude up!), a big glass of water, and a head full of happy thoughts.”

CULTIVER

Yes, another brilliant local bed linen label – we’re spoilt for choice! Sydney based linen curators Cultiver have developed their own cult following since launching in 2012. Their bedding selection is styled for ‘Australian ease’ – effortless, comfortable and understated chic.

Cultiver’s founder and director, Nicolle Sullivan, shares her top tip for a good night’s sleep:

“Surround yourself with quality fabrics like linen, which is highly breathable, and therefore temperate to sleep in for both hot and cool sleepers. Also, try your best to avoid using technology right before you go to sleep – charge your phone elsewhere to stop the inevitable Instagram pull!”

Bold, graphic and fun, we love bed linen by Sydney based  Castle. Photo – Caitlin Mills.

Castle

Well loved Sydney bed linen label Castle is the creation of artist and designer Rachel Castle. Rachel has an intuitive sense of colour and pattern – we love her delicately printed velvets and graphic printed linens, which lend a little playful punch to both kids and grown-up bedrooms. Castle balances simplicity and timelessness, with personality and punctuation!

Rachel Castle’s tip for a good night’s sleep:

“Your bedding should be peaceful to go to sleep in, and equally playful to wake up in.”

I Love Linen

We love linen, they love linen, and after sleeping in their sheets, we suspect that you will love linen too! Founded in Melbourne and now based in Queensland, I Love Linen is all about French linen, and features a palette of warm neutrals and traditional ticking stripes, designed to be mixed and matched.

I Love Linen’s Lauren Roe shares her Top tip for a good night’s sleep:

“Making your bed everyday can go a long way to creating a calm and welcoming atmosphere when it comes time to relax. While we’re not fans of a formal or over-stuffed look, styling your bed is both pleasing to the eye and mind, setting you up for a good night’s sleep!”.

Mr Draper’s Alistair Birrell shares his top tip for a good night’s sleep:

“It is all about comfort, cool in summer and like a warm hug in winter. Our heavyweight linen breathes, won’t stick to you and is extra durable.”

Sage x Clare

With a distinct nod to 70s feel-good vibes, we love the newest collection from Melbourne based Sage x Clare. Entitled ‘Terra’, this vibrant collection merges American folk influences, retro florals and delicate embellishments. See our recent full feature on the range here!

Sage X Clare’s founder and designer Phoebe Bell  shares her top tip for a good night’s sleep:

“Linen sheets! Not only are they soft and snuggly, they’re also breathable with just the right amount of weight. Try dabbing your pillow with a lavender blend essential oil too for encouraging deep, restful sleep.”
