Emma Hooton explains why white bedding is always right

Colours and prints seem to be forever trending in the interior bedroom space, but if you search #bedroom on Instagram, it’s full of inspirational bedroom images, mostly featuring white bed linen, popular with influencers, fashion designers and interior stylists…is this obsession with white bedding a new trend?



We spend a third of our lives in bed and a good night’s sleep is absolutely vital to a feeling of health and well-being. Sleeping in bedlinen that is 100% cotton, soft to the touch and which allows the skin to breathe is without a doubt the answer to sleeping well. Good quality bedlinen is an investment for life and treated correctly it will continue to deliver many years of good quality sleep.

Your bedroom needs to be a sanctuary from the stresses and strains of modern-day living. Top quality white bed linen creates the perfect timeless look and helps promotes a sense of peace and calm. To get the chic boutique hotel look at home, try styling your bed with a gorgeous white cotton bedspread.  Drape your bedspread over the entire bed to create an elegant blank canvas for your larger pillows, accent cushions and stylish throw.


We had coffee with Emma Hooton, our in-house interior stylist at Tielle Love Luxury from Studio Hooton, to find out more about why she always advises clients to use fresh, crisp white bed linen.


“Interiors are layers of styling and dressing so start with a blank, neutral canvas and work up with a statement headboard and fun patterns or colour popping cushions for a bed you want to dive into.

White always forms the perfect backdrop to any other hues or textures in the bedroom and we would always prefer it over coloured linen which not only fades over time, but easily dates and somehow never looks quite as timeless or inviting as fresh white.

Used by the world’s leading hotels, white sets the standard in luxury and we love a boutique hotel look.  Anything from a 300-thread count will give you the same quality feel as a night in a 5-star hotel.

In any interior, from rich, autumnal tones in luxurious velvets to lighter Scandi woods and linens, clean white linen is always the most versatile option.”
