Smitten \\ Soak & Sleep…

Abode - Everyday

summer blues for the bedroom & soft french linen from soak & sleep

Hurrah, Summer is finally here – did you celebrate Solstice last weekend? I can’t believe this was a year ago!

I was kindly invited to the ultimate sleep event last month – hosted in the sumptuous rooms of the Artist Residence London by Soak & Sleep to celebrate their ‘Summer of Linen’; we sampled Pact coffee (by we, I mean everyone else – it smelled divine, but I am no coffee lover I’m afraid!), experienced relaxing yoga techniques with Natasha Kerry (if crochet’s not your thing, you should check out her retreats in Morrocco, they look amazing!), and discovered our perfect pillow with a sleep style consultation…

summer blues for the bedroom & soft french linen from soak & sleep Having discovered the beautifully soft 100% pure french linen offerings from Soak & Sleep earlier in the year (being the only place I could actually find a proper superking size flat sheet in linen), I needed no introduction – I was already smitten – Soak &Sleep is a company that knows it’s stuff… summer blues for the bedroom & soft french linen from soak & sleep

The business (originally known as Duvet and Pillow Warehouse) was launched by Charlie Hunt in 2006 from his spare bedroom. He had one simple aim: to provide great quality duvets and pillows at a fraction of the high street price. And, by cutting out the middlemen and expensive High Street shops, and buying direct from trusted factories, Charlie and his growing team have been able to offer customers good quality products at affordable prices.The service & expertise is brilliant, and the enthusiasm of the team is infectious:

“We’re purely focus on bed and bath, we don’t want to be a home brand, and we want to introduce all the qualities of making the most of your moments of relaxation, so we really focus on having deep, deep knowledge of how you sleep, we advise our customers on the right sleeping positions, the right pillows to go with your sleeping positions, the right mattress to support you to sleep.”

This summer, Soak & Sleep  are celebrating the ‘Summer of Linen’ with lightweight and absorbant Turkish Hammam towels just perfect for your holiday packing, and soft vintage floral & striped French linen sheets for a summery update to your bedroom.

I’m still in the midst of deciding what to do with our room overall, but personally, I love my crisp white linen – it’s so easy to make quick changes around. I’ve added a fresh touch of summer blues with the shibori bolster pillow case I made (with Heather & Bethan at Sisterhood Camp) & my second print from the talented Clare Elseasser, combined with a touch of pink from my ever favourite peonies…

    This is such a lovely post, your photographs are just beautiful. I’ll definitely check out Soak & Sleep as I’m always on the look out for good linen. Where did you find the inner for your bolster pillow (which is very pretty by the way!)? x
