Say Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen's name to people and they'll instinctively come back with something about smoking jackets, lace cuffs or his makeover having made that poor lady cry that time on Changing Rooms.

Wimbledon Whites! PDF Print E-mail

With Wimbledon upon us, the whites are out!  What better time to embrace this great British tradition from the oldest tennis championship in the world, and use fresh white colours throughout the home this summer…

Using whites in the home helps to create a clean, fresh vibe - guaranteed to “se-deuce” in the bedroom!  Light coloured fabrics open up a room and increases the perception of spaciousness as the light reflects around the room.  White and other neutral tones are especially good for smaller bedrooms that don’t get a great deal of sunlight.  These muted colours bring a breath of fresh air to the home - even when the roof is drawn over Centre Court!

Using only the finest cotton yarns to ensure the softest and most restful sleep, the simple and gorgeous ‘ice white’ new range of luxury bed linen from The Best Bed Linen in the World has a thread count of 400 percale.  The gorgeous white bed linen is incredibly soft to the touch due to the quality of the finishing process.   With its silky-like texture against the skin, couples might even be encouraged to play a little ‘mixed’ game of their own and create a ‘racquet’ in the bedroom!
