Exuding a light, relaxed elegance, Linen is not only beautiful but also extremely versatile. From tabletops to wall hangings (yes, even chandeliers!), there are many ways to use Linen beyond your Bedding and around the home, too. Here are a few of our favorite ways to style Linen…

1. Curtains

White Linen curtains give a room a relaxed, elegant feel; Source: Lizzo
What makes Linen so remarkable is its perfect middle ground appeal. Linen curtains are transparent enough to let light in but thick enough to offer privacy and keep out an afternoon glare. For breezy Amalfi coast vibes, try white Linen curtains in any room in your home.

So you need a tablecloth but don’t want an overly formal or “done” look at your dinner party? Enter Linen. Whether you use it as a runner, tablecloth, napkin or placemat, Linen adds a rustic chic look – especially in summer or for outdoor events.

3. Shower Curtains

4. Towels

Lightweight Linen towels are a nice touch in the kitchen, bathroom, beach or even backyard! Again, their absorbency and durability make them suitable for conditions where water may be around. Why do you think Linen is so popular in the Greek isles, after all? Bonus points for a white and blue summer nautical look.

Less common than a standard dining room chandelier, but equally (if not more) a centerpiece, a Linen wall hanging is something worth trying. You can even make one using strips of Linen fabric. While we don’t love the thought of anyone cutting apart our Linen Top Sheets, we approve when it’s for a Linen chandelier like the one below.

A bedroom awash in white is chic and calming any time of the year. White is an ideal color if a room is on the smaller side, as it maximizes light and gives the illusion of a larger space. The key to making white-on-white work: don’t be one-note. Add visual interest by layering textures to create depth while remaining true to your pale palette (remember, there are hundreds of variations on white from high gloss bright hues to warmer, milky shades). Here are just a few styles we’re into, no matter what the season.

Go Glam Layering different textures of white keeps a room glam without becoming overcrowded; Source: Sukio Just because you’re sticking to a single color does not mean you have to adopt a minimalist sensibility. Keeping your interior elements in a white-on-white palette avoids a cluttered feel and allows luxe materials to really make a statement. So go ahead and get bold on your blank canvas. Think mirrored nightstands, a tufted headboard and a few marble or Lucite accents for decadent, Old Hollywood vibes.

Relaxed Romance A bohemian bedroom can easily be tasteful on a budget; Source: Maison du Monde A bohemian spin on the all-white look evokes low-key romance and nostalgia. While you’re on the hunt for the perfectly patinaed wrought-iron bed frame, start small with sheer lace curtains, daisies in milk glass vases on the nightstand or a vintage mirror. Flea market finds take on a new life with a coat of white paint (and if you’re DIY-averse, there are plenty of ready-made options available).

Opposites Attract White and black are the perfect complementary colors; Source: Bohemian Tree House It’s basic math: White plus black equals crisp, clean and classic. To really play up a two-tone palette, look for pieces that offer a high textural contrast. A framed black and white photograph over the headboard, a glossy lacquered lamp or a geometric flatweave underfoot are all excellent options for unfussy, high-impact accents.

Nordic Cool A mod and minimalist Scandinavian inspired room is perfect for hot temperatures; Source: Scandinavian Designs The Scandinavian approach to interiors is heavily influenced by making the most of natural light (not surprising, considering the gloomy winters and lengthy daylight hours of Midsummer). Although the quintessential Nordic whitewashed floors are a big commitment, there are plenty of other ways to emulate stripped-down Scandi style. Embrace negative space and accent sparingly with blonde wood, mid-century modern lighting and a meaningful piece of folk art.

Bright and Beautiful Adding a scoop of oxygenated bleach to your regular laundry detergent will keep your whites bright; Source: Chapter Friday Perhaps more frightening than the prospect of committing to monochrome is the stain anxiety that all-white anything induces. Keep your Bedding bright by adding a scoop of oxygenated bleach to your laundry with regular detergent (unlike regular bleach, it can be used on non-whites). For an eco-friendly stain remover, apply white vinegar or lemon juice directly to stains (a dab of hydrogen peroxide will also do the trick). And if you must have a glass of wine while you watch Netflix in bed, make it a sauvignon blanc.

While care labels provide a great starting place, proper Bedding maintenance requires additional steps and is essential for increasing the longevity of your linens. So we created this guide to help answer the most frequent Bedding care questions, from how often to wash your Sheets to the best way to store them and more.
What to Avoid
To maintain the premium quality of your Bedding, avoid powdered detergent, fabric softeners and bleaching agents because these coat and weaken the natural fibers. Also keep your Bedding away from household cleaners and personal care products that contain benzoyl peroxide or alpha hydroxy acids to prevent discoloration.

Washing Frequency

Your Venice Set should get cleaned every 7-10 days, more often if you’re prone to night sweats or skip a shower post workout.
Sheets, Pillowcases and Duvet Covers should be washed every seven to ten days, and decorative products or extra layers that don’t come in as much direct contact with your skin (think Quilts,Cashmere Throws or Euro Shams) should be cleaned every three months. Pillow Inserts and Duvet Inserts should be washed less often – every three to six months. Pro tip: Wash Inserts at the start of each season as an easy way to maintain a regular cleaning schedule.

Washing and Drying

It’s important that Down Inserts dry completely after washing before you put them back on your bed or storage.
Fill the washer with cool water for Percale and Sateen Sheets, or fill the washer with warm water for Linen Sheets and Essential Quilts. Add mild, liquid soap – less than the manufacturer calls for. Allow the detergent to dissolve before loading your Bedding into the washing machine. If you do use bleach, make sure it’s non-chlorine. We recommend Oxi Clean for removing stains or adding vinegar and baking soda to the wash cycle to brighten your Bedding. Remember to only wash similar items together – the same color and fabric – and never add clothing to a load of Bedding because zippers, hooks, etc. cause pilling and abrasion.
To dry, half load the machine to prevent twisted Bedding, allowing the fabric to fluff up. Set the dryer to low heat, as overheating causes the fibers to become brittle and the color to fade. Reduce static and soften your Bedding by adding felted woolen balls to the drying cycle. If applying the linens directly to the bed after laundering, pull them out just before they’re dry. Slightly damp Sheets will prevent wrinkles – no iron needed.

Protection

Mattress, pillow and duvet protectors reduce dust mites and guard against spills; Source: The Company Store
No one wants dust mites! These unwelcome visitors are responsible for causing acne and triggering asthma-like symptoms or chronic sinus problems. Bedding protectors help reduce the dust mite population and improve the lifespan of your products. Purchase protectors for both your mattress and pillows. You may also consider using a duvet protector in addition to your Duvet Cover; this not only provides a supplementary external barrier between the Insert and harmful substances, but it also reduces the amount of down that escapes from the Insert into your bedroom.
In addition to utilizing protective covers, adopting a few simple practices can further protect your comforters:
• Consider making your bedroom a no pet zone; pets shed fur and skin cells which feed dust mites. You deserve a little space completely dedicated to you!
• Keep your room cool and dry. Try using a dehumidifier if you’re in a particularly humid climate or invest in an air conditioner in a warm climate.
• Showering in the evening reduces the required frequency of washes and therefore prolongs the lifespan of your Sheets.
• Never place the following items on your bed: luggage, handbags, smartphones, shoes or clothes that have yet to be laundered. All of these items can damage your Bedding or transfer unwanted oils and germs to the bed.
• Make your bed every morning, which not only improves your state of mind also keeps dust mites out and your Bedding in good shape. Pillows in particular should be plumped daily to maintain their shape.

Folding and Storage

Folding’s more fun when tackled together.
You should have a couple sets of Sheets per bed for convenience or in case of accidents. To store your extra linens, choose a closet, armoire or trunk that is dry and cool, avoids direct sunlight (sunlight can cause permanent yellowing) and is well-ventilated. Natural fibers need air to breathe!

Never store your Bedding in plastic containers – these trap moisture and result in mildew – and avoid cardboard, which may transfer acids to the fabric. Pro tip: If you have multiple sized beds in your home (for example, your child has a twin, the guest room has a queen and the master has a king), dedicate a specific shelf in the linen closet to each Bedding size. It’ll make identifying the right linens a breeze.
Before folding linens to store, make sure they are completely dry (for tips on how to fold a Fitted Sheet, view our instructional video). A Bedding bag with cotton panels is perfect for extra Inserts, and Sheets should be stored in their own fabric. Our Bedding comes in self-care bags made of the same, high quality fabric as the product itself. We like to spritz linen spray or tuck a bag of lavender inside each to keep things smelling fresh.

Replacement

Pillowcases require most frequent replacement, as these receive the most wear and tear.
Frequent washing breaks down even the highest quality Bedding, so replace your Sheets and Duvet Covers when you see signs of aging like stains or fraying hems. For a quick Bedding update, replace Pillowcases every six months, as oils from your skin and hair, makeup, moisturizers etc. transfer to the fabric while you sleep. Duvet Inserts should be replaced when they begin to look limp or flat, and Pillow Inserts should be replaced when they no longer look evenly filled after fluffing. (Note: If you’re waking up with neck or back pain, you may have chosen the wrong type of Pillow for your preferred sleep position. Consult our Pillow Guide.)

5 rituals-alarm

The way you spend your waking moments extends the benefits of your sleep throughout the day. We know it can be tough to get out of bed sometimes (especially if you’re sleeping with Bed & Bath), so we turned to Jessa Blades to teach us how to love our mornings. The Brooklyn and Los Angeles based natural beauty and wellness expert recently shared her simple morning rituals with Mind Body Green, and we found her routine so refreshing, we thought we’d post, too…
Morning is my new favorite time of day — but it wasn’t always this way. I used to think I was more productive at night. I’m still getting to know mornings and my rituals, and I’m appreciating the little things, like the shadows and how different and pretty the light is as it streams through the windows. It really is special to witness.
My relationship to mornings still feels new and exciting, but it takes me a little while to actually feel awake. I try to slow things down as much as possible, avoiding technology for as long as I can while I get back into my body and find my center.

These are five rituals that help me feel calm, balanced, and ready to start the day:
1. Set your own alarm.
When I’m ready for sleep, I close my eyes and focus on what time I want to wake up in the morning. I set an alarm as backup, but I usually tend to rise at the time I instructed my body to awaken. This practice helps me get more in touch with the power of my mind and my intuition.
2. Make breakfast easy and complete.
I love a cup of Traditional Medicinals Roasted Dandelion Root tea in my favorite mug (my mom made the mug for me; she’s a ceramic artist) in the morning. Dandelion is one of my favorite plants, and as an herbalist I love how it gently supports digestion. If I want an added immunity boost, I’ll brew a pot of the dandelion tea and add a bit of chaga mushroom that my friend Olivia harvests in Upstate New York.
For breakfast I make sure to have high-quality fat, carbohydrates and protein. I love a medicinal smoothie — more for healing than taste. I use different combinations of food depending on what my body needs — kale, coconut oil, spinach, berries, soaked chia seeds, kefir, oats, almond milk, banana, flaxseed, tincture of echinacea — whatever I have around.
My other favorite breakfast is a bowl of kitchari topped with an egg, cilantro pesto and a little good-quality grass-fed cheese. I make the kitchari for the entire week, keeping a big bowl in the fridge so I can easily heat it up every morning.
3. Meditate, and make it easy.
The daily practice of meditation is powerful and transformative. It helps my creativity and allows my brain to rest and refocus. I like to start out my day with meditation, even if it’s just for five minutes.
I light some incense, sit back in my made bed (it’s been said that making the bed is great for productivity) and meditate. There are great apps that make meditating easier; I’m a huge fan of the one by calm.com. It reminds me to meditate every day — and I love all the timer sound options: chimes, singing bowls and a harp!
My other favorite meditation app is the Silva Method. I grew up studying the method (which uses guided imagery techniques for self-empowerment), and it has a great morning exercise routine that I love to use to start my day.
4. Bring nature into the morning in any way possible.
When the weather’s nice, I like to sit outside with my bare feet in the grass while sipping some hot water with lemon, apple cider vinegar, elderberry, ginger, and either a tincture of rose or echinacea. (This little ritual is even better when I’m in L.A. and can pick a fresh lemon off the tree.)
If the weather isn’t ideal, I experience nature in more creative ways — with herbal tea, the steam from dried eucalyptus hanging in my shower, or through my rose-infused moisturizing face oil. The conscious addition of nature to my morning ritual helps me slow down and feel inspired.
5. Listen to reggae music.
To me, reggae is like sunshine for my body and mind. I believe it has healing properties, and it makes me feel calm and happy as I start my day. Dancing to reggae feels medicinal, promoting happiness and relaxation.

When getting ready to host overnight guests, we tend to focus on washing the Bedding, jazzing up the spare room and fully stocking the fridge. And while all those tasks are important, prepping the bathroom often gets overlooked.
Whether you have a separate bathroom or will be sharing your own, there are a few things you can do to make your visitors feel completely comfortable in the loo. Here are 8 tips and some of our favorite bathroom toiletries to boot…

1. Plenty of Basics

First and foremost, make sure your guests can easily access the essentials. At a minimum, this means having extra rolls of toilet paper in a prominent spot, extra boxes of tissues, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, conditioner plus shaving gel and a new razor. You might want to consider providing hand sanitizer and a natural room spray.

2. Yummy, Plush Towels

Dedicate a few complete sets of Bed & Bath’s Classic Towels for guests’ use only.
We can all agree that having a beautiful set of guest bed linens is a must, but are your guest Towels up to par? A freshly laundered stack of Bath Towels, easily accessible Hand Towels and a few extra Washcloths go a long way. Make sure you also have towel bars and a hamper accessible so they know where to hang and then toss their used Bath products.

3. A Luxe Robe

One of our favorite things about staying in a luxury hotel is the sumptuous white robe waiting in the closet. Go the extra mile and purchase one or two unisex robes for visitors, then hang them on wooden hangers in their room.

4. Soy candles

Adding a softly scented natural candles to your bathroom is another thoughtful touch. Choose a Candle with a more neutral smell for guests who might have a sensitive olfactory system. Keep some matchbooks nearby (we suggest vintage books or matches from nearby establishments you love). Light the candle right before your guests arrive – they’ll feel less shy about reigniting it later, maybe for a bath.

5. Special Extras

To offer your guests a truly exceptional stay, invest in a few toiletries and cosmetics they’ll likely need but might not bring. Keep them on the bathroom counter so visitors know to help themselves. We’re talking special extras here, like these:
• Toothbrush
• Make-up wipes
• Body lotion
• Hairbrush
• Sunscreen
• Travel packs of common medications

6. First Aid Kit

A first aid kit is one of those items that you don’t really think about…until you desperately need it. While it’s not necessary to have this out in the open, you should definitely store one (perhaps under the sink or stylishly on the wall) just in case.

7. Bubble Bath

If you have a nice bathtub (claw foot for the win!), keep some sustainable bubble bath or DIY salts on hand for use. Display these items together in a basket next to the tub for easy access.

8. Inspiring Magazines and Easy Reads

Keep a curated selection of recent magazines and a few books in the bathroom as well. If you know your guests’ preferences, place those on top. For example, if you have a foodie friend in town grab the newest issue of Gather Journal. Also keep a few design books that are enjoyable to browse: Justina Blakeney’sNew Bohemians is a crowd pleaser.

Stay fresh and clean with Bed & Bath’s first ever Bath Towel Collection. Loomed from premium long-staple cotton using innovative Aerocotton Technology, these new Towels were designed with softness, absorbency and durability top of mind.

To help maximize the features and benefits of these new home essentials, we’ve put together a guide on how to care for Towels – from laundering to hanging – so you get the most out of bathing with the best.

What to Avoid
To maintain the premium quality and performance of your Towels, avoid fabric softeners and bleaching agents because they coat the natural fibers. Also keep your Towels away from household cleaners and personal care products that contain benzoyl peroxide or alpha hydroxy acids because these may cause discoloration.

1.Washing
We recommend washing after every third use. To launder, use cold water and just a small amount of detergent, as soap build up inhibits drying performance. Prevent pilling – which occurs when long fibers rub against short fibers – by dedicating your load of wash solely to your Bath items and washing different color Towels separately.

2.Drying
Before drying, give your Towels a shake to fluff up the fabric. Tumble dry on low (high heat damages the fabric) and remove promptly, because over-drying creates brittle fibers. If you prefer the fresh scent of air dried linens, try these steps to avoid a stiff feeling: After shaking, hang one short end over the clothesline and clip. Remove the Towel from the clothesline when just slightly damp and insert it into the dryer for a final fluff. Always make sure your Towels are completely dry before folding and storing.

3.Folding
For wrinkle-free Towels that evoke hotel suite vibes, we recommend the following method for folding: First, lay the Towel flat on a surface and smooth out any wrinkles. Then, starting with the long side of the Towel, fold the length in thirds. Grasp the short side and fold the Towel in half. Repeat this step. You should be left with a neat square which will hang beautifully over a rod – showcasing its dobby design – or will look equally neat and tidy stacked on a shelf.
If you prefer rolled Towels, stored on a shelf or in a basket, we recommend the following method: Fold the Towel in half so that it makes a square. Next, fold one of the corners into the center of the square. Repeat this step with the opposite corner. Flip the Towel so that the two folded corners are face down. Finish by tightly rolling from one end to the other.

4.Storing
When organizing your linen closet, less is more. Overloaded shelves can cause wrinkling, unpleasant odors or even mildew. To keep this space smelling fresh, we like to tuck a bag of lavender within the folds of our Towels. Another pro tip: Avoid overusing one set of Towels by storing the freshly laundered ones at the bottom of the stack in your linen closet. This way, everything in the closet gets regular use.

5.Hanging
Between uses, hang your Towel to dry. Never pile damp Towels on the floor or into a hamper, as this will enable growth of mildew and mold. Instead, drape the Towel over a towel bar, which allows it to hang flat and air dry most quickly. When a Towel is hung on a hook, moisture gets trapped between the folds. Trapped moisture = mildew and bacteria. We’re guessing you don’t want those in your bathroom.

6.Replacing
Your Towels are work horses; subject to daily use and frequent washing, it’s inevitable that they will eventually start looking tired. Plan accordingly: Replace your Bath linens about every 2 years. We suggest donating your old Towels to your local animal shelter or re-purposing them as cleaning rags. Good for you, good for the environment.
