I Love Linen

When I woke Sunday morning it was following by a little squeal of delight. And not because of what you might think. I slept through without being disturbed for the first time in three weeks thank to the flu.

When you finally get reunited with your bed you want to shout it from the bedroom chandelier. Except it just doesn’t sound anywhere near as exciting as the bedroom antics from Fifty Shades of Grey.


“So? Did you see what Christian Grey did? Now that’s worth shouting about.’’


That full night’s sleep had an extra element of luxury, because it was done between two layers of I Love Linen 1000 thread count cotton hotel sheets. I was transported to a five-star hotel, where they leave chocolates on your pillow, a fluffy dressing gown to slip into and the only disruption is the room service you ordered 20 minutes earlier. And then I had to slap myself around the head to wake up.

I Love Linen

Fresh sheets and a newly made bed are something to get excited about these days. Sad? Extremely. Except after you have children it’s these little luxuries that go a long way. A good night’s sleep helps you function properly, enables you to tolerate the day’s challenges and your skin will always thank you for it. You don’t need a magnifying glass to see the ravines adorning my face.

This set from I Love Linen came beautifully packaged, wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string – just like someone does when they really care about the recipient.

I Love Linen

There was even a beautiful handwritten note on the front.

I Love Linen

Inside I soon learnt what sort of a bargain I was being given.

And can I add that these sheets look pretty darn good against our cream colour scheme and very smart with the stripe effect.

Now, excuse me. I have a date with the bedroom….

    Yes definitely the ivory. How gorgeous to sleep between these, thanks xxx

  2. Cristina B says:

    The striped Queen Charcoal. Authoritative and in control!

  3. Charcoal for me, for the uniqieness and the mystery!!

  4. Sally WInstanley says:

    Would have to be charcoal, as sticky and dirty little fingers are always a issue in our bed!! Oh how times have changed practicality over style!!

  5. S Armstrong says:

    COFFEE, sums up my pesonality in the morning the best – Get out of my way or lead me to the coffee.

  6. Shelley says:

    I’m definitely coffee colored. Give me coffee and I’m a happy girl. And now I’m thinking, if I had coffee colored sheets, would that make me an even happier girl in the bedroom, if you get my drift? 😉

  7. Suzi says:

    The coffee colour is beautiful. Am I coffee? I am strong and complex!

  8. Alexandra says:

    Wood Mushroom, its not quite coffee and not quite Ivory…its a bit in between, the way I like my steak cooked, my coffee milked, my chocolate (milk) and lamb roasted.

  9. Toni says:

    I can’t even choose!! Maybe white — or charcoal — but they’re all so gorgeous, and the doona covers nearly made me cry. I could have a new doona cover every week, no problem.
    Did you check out the bed runners???? *drool*
    I think I might be buying some new bed linen….

  11. Melissa Te Whata says:

    you mentioned Christian Grey …. I forgot my answer now …. Grey mmmmmmm charcoal please 🙂

  12. The cherry might not describe me but I would love to have it anyway! It is warm and bright at the same time.
    Claireyhewitt recently posted..Happiness from the hard rubbish.My Profile

  13. I am definitely a Cherry Block person!!! Bold and drastic!

    We have a new bed (finally upgraded from a broken IKEA one!) and its dark oak and smell wonderful.. but our bedspread has definitely seen better days!

  14. Lightening says:

    I wish I could think of something smart to say
    Instead I seem to be sleeping the day away
    Some good quality sheets is what this pregnant girl needs
    The lovely ice blue would suit nicely please

    P.S. Ice blue because they sound beautiful and cool for the upcoming warmer months and it’s a colour that sounds fit for a Queen (I’m Queen of my own bed!).

  15. Melinda Ivey says:

    Coffee- describes me perfectly, smooth yet sometimes bitter if not treated in the right manner, i also leave a nice aftertaste!!

  16. manda rainbird says:

    White! Every morning we start the day with a fresh slate. With toddler triplets everyday is a new day!

  17. Rebecca Costa says:

    I’m a white sheet girl as I’ve never owned white sheets and it would make feel like I’m in a fancy hotel with bueatiful sheets!!

  18. Natasha Andrews says:

    Ohh the MUSHROOM is hubby and me to a T (such a nicer name than beige) it matches perfectly the brown quilt cover he loves AND the patterned blue one I adore.

    Thanks for directing me to the I love linen store. I had a very sad shoping trip on Sunday to try to buy a sheet for our bed and just couldnt afford the $300 sheet I loved!! At the moment we have 1 sheet, which means it is washed and dried in one day…a real challenge in a Tasmanian winter!!! I know where I’ll be shopping for my sheet now (even if I dont win this giveaway!!)

  19. Jenna says:

    I would be cherry – although I need one extra ‘e’. I’m a morning person anyway but I’d wake up extra ‘cheery’ if you picked me.

  20. Stacey Prickett says:

    Mushroom – cause due to hubby’s work I sometimes feel like one!!

  21. Sonya says:

    I’m defiantly coffee! I can’t live without it, so I’d love to be sleeping in it 🙂

  22. Linda Courtney says:

    Both precious and rare, it’s IVORY for me.
    Just like the man for whom I love and care.

  23. Penne says:

    Coffee block for me. I need help to get out of bed in the morning, as I just love sleeping in clean, crisp, fresh sheets. In fact I drink coffee all day just to stay awake and it keeps me going throughout the day. Oh, and it reminds me of going out to cafes sipping a vanilla latte (on soy of course). Did I mention I just happen to love…coffee? I’m a coffee queen in my own right….Oops I mean…bed 🙂

  24. Toni Crawford says:

    The Queen Linen 1000 thread count Hotel Sheet set is my escape when I need it like a holiday away from the usual everyday.

  25. Karen Turner says:

    The Charcoal for a warmth and it will also match my interior.

  26. emma says:

    The coffee (block). I looove the warm colour and I love my coffee!

  27. Melissa Okimoto says:

    I love charcoal, its carefree, sexy and goes with everything.

  28. Lee says:

    Charcoal for me please.
    It’s stylish, deep and intruiging!

  29. Colleen says:

    MUSHROOM…sliding between the sheets in the dark..what a lark!

  30. Karina W says:

    I am cherry, because that is the colour of my face after one sip of champagne.

  31. Kathryn C says:

    Wood Mushroom – warm, seductive and when I am toasted up I turn all squishy 😉

  32. Sue Bou says:

    Pearl Grey, it has a calmness to it I’d like to have myself.

  33. Megan says:

    I’m definitely queen charcoal, because I’m feeling burnt out! Although with 3 children under 5 and getting up to them on average of 5 times a night, I’m not sure I deserve these beautiful sheets to ‘sleep’ in!

  34. Dee says:

    Cherry – full of love and passion for the gorgeous earthbound angel (aka hubby) who shares my abode 😉

  35. Diana O says:

    CHARCOAL: Full of anger and rage at all the little things in life that are going wrong for me right now.

  36. Donato says:

    Coffee: During winter I like to be bland, boring and a little bit stagnant, hiding away and hibernating until the sun returns.

  37. Kim m says:

    I’m like the black bamboo throw, I’m a bit messy and the black colour wouldn’t show the stains, just what I need.

  38. Enid Bite'Em says:

    Ivory – because then I would have an excuse to start my day singing bad 80s songs, like Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder, with a little ‘Ebony and Ivory’(yes, I really am that daggy). Or maybe if I had really classy linen I would just go back to sleep and you wouldn’t have to hear me singing bad 80s songs?
    Enid Bite’Em recently posted..Beginners: Monday at the MoooviesMy Profile

  39. Becci says:

    Charcoal – because I want to be that person with grown up coloured bed sheets.

  40. Kimberley Belford says:

    Charcoal ,
    This colour symbolizes to me strong and mysterious
    On the other hand when I say charcoal the words “Smoking Hot Baby !!” comes to mind 🙂

  41. Mick says:

    Charcoal because Like me black can be accented with any colour and mood

  42. Valissa says:

    The charcoal ones best describe me: dark and sultry at night, foggy and hard-to-let-go-of in the early morning.

  43. Deb says:

    Charcoal for me – then if I go to bed with dusty feet, I’ll get away with it!

  44. Kirsty says:

    Would have to chose the coffee colour- comforting, addictive & can release any trigger points to help relieve residual tensions (I.e massage therapist)!

  45. Renee Annison says:

    Coffee,Its strength/ my weakness,so I can always slip into something special.

  46. Mary Preston says:

    CHERRY: cheerful & optimistic & I’m certainly colourful in more ways than one.

  47. Melinda says:

    Would have to be cherry..not for the color, but for the fact that my son doesn’t like red. Hopefully by having red sheets on the bed, he will stay in his own bed at night. My hubby and I are not happy sharing our space with little bed hog!!

  48. CrystalB says:

    Coffee here, matches my choice of drink these days.

  49. Vicki Sullivan says:

    White for me please

  50. Pearl Grey is beautiful 😀

  51. Jo says:

    The Cherry colour- it looks good enough to eat, like a cherry mousse, Y U M !

  52. Fiona Lawson says:

    I’m a Linen girl. 100% pure linen, if I could become the fabric of my bed I would and i’d spend my evenings snuggled round my husband and my girls helping them sleep soundly.

  53. Samantha Savva says:

    White – because all I can think and dream about at the moment is WHITE wine. Let me tell you, this pregnant lady needs a BOTTLE (or a few) of white wine to get me through the last few months of this pregnancy! If only I could actually drink it!

  54. Lisa says:

    I would have to say that I am mushroom – a little bit organic and natural but also smooth and modern. Or at least, that’s how I would like to see myself! 🙂
    Lisa recently posted..BubbyMy Profile

  55. Nat says:

    Cherry for me – Love to “blush” between the sheets 😉

  56. Belinda McLeod says:

    Has to be Charcol for me !!

  57. Alexandra Richards says:

    Has to be the Ivory for me Love Love Love It!

  58. Lisa Wood says:

    If I was not a mum and married I would say white. But with four boys and one hubby they would soon be King Charcoal sheets.
    After looking through the wonderful “I love Linen” colour ranges I would love to say the wood mushroom is for our bed – but I still think its going to show up too much of Australia Dirt (and my boys finger prints)
    So after much thought I would have to say that “Cheery Block” is perfect for me! And our motorhome colour scheme 🙂

  59. Marilyn says:

    Hi Kellie, Like you, I’m not quite pure enough for white either. Thank goodness those days are long gone! Now I’m a Cherry kinda gal because cherries are sweet when left to ripen, can be a wee bit tart if picked too early but when treated properly, they are soft, sweet and absolutely perfect – definitely me. Love the colour.

  60. Lee Tancredi says:

    I would be grey, because i’m a bit of a nana these days. In bed by nine, cups of tea instead of wine… 🙂

  61. What a gorgeous site to browse around on – all that fabulous bedding! My hubby thanks you so much for introducing me to their website he he NOT!
    I am totally a white girl – cause I can bleach out any stains that come about from our Friday Night pile into Mum and Dads bed Watch a movie night!. You know the usual stains like, greasy popcorn fingers, chocolate smudges and hot chockie drips 😉 xx

  63. Sonya Nicole says:

    Charcoal. Ivory is a close second, but charcoal would go better in our bedroom. Fingers crossed!

  64. Julian N. says:

    Ivory. Because it’s my wife’s favourite colour and I know it will earn me major Brownie Points with her if I win!!

  65. Anna K says:

    I am Charcoal because I used to be fiery but now I’ve chilled out and spend my time sketching.

  66. Rachel Thompson says:

    I’m cherry. Sweet & warm, bubbly and fun 🙂

  67. Krystle says:

  70. Lisa Crambrook says:

    I love ‘King White Hotel’, its not practical because of the husband and kids but I would love to dream that I am away on holidays in a hotel somewhere, white reminds me of fresh crisp hotel sheets…dreaming…

  71. Seana Smith says:

    I love the charcoal, it totally would match my new carpet… and I’d be amazed and over the moon to finally have something matching something else in my home!!!

  72. Charlotte L. says:

    I Love Linen,what a great site,
    For me the Coffee colour would be right,
    Strong and lovely I like to think,
    Also coffee is my favourite drink!

  73. Of course can’t go past the coffee block! As an avid coffee drinker so my eyes froze when i saw the coffee block set #huzzah now off to make another cuppa from the hot pot *snort*

    As much as I love the white sheets, they would be completely impractical. I love the charcoal. They look so warm and inviting. Perfect for a good night’s slumber.

  75. Liz says:

    It’s have to be Mushroom. A bit warmer than ivory, but not particularly bold… enough colour to hide day-to-day wear and best of all, the cat fur wouldn’t stand out on it 😉
    Liz recently posted..Media Kit: ExposedMy Profile

  76. tamra childers says:

    I like Cherry. Because it’s trying to be cheery but doesn’t quite cut it, it’s still a little moody, much like myself in the mornings.

  77. Gillian Harridge says:

    Mushroom,it charming elegance would match my romantic bedroom.It makes me feel like a lady.

  78. Matt Brown says:

    White,fresh,crisp,soothing,everything my bedroom should be 🙂

  79. Rebekah says:

    White – because I have an inability to effectively launder anything else!
    Rebekah recently posted..We Walk to Remember.My Profile

  80. I like wood mushroom block colour, it looks creamy but mild and it’s a cozy colour for me.

  81. Carolyn says:

    Wood Mushroom because I’m a country girl and I’ve grown close to the ground (I’m short!)

  82. Tam says:

    No doubt about it, I have to be coffee, especially if ‘you are what you eat’ has anything to do with it 😉

  83. Melissa Kagie says:

    Charcoal, I love drawing with charcoal and it represents me well with its strength and mysteriousness 🙂

  84. Michelle says:

    HAS to be Charcoal, because I’m a bit of a tomboy (or should that be tomwoman?).

  85. sharon says:

    I am pure white – classic, classy and elegant all the way. Alwasy fashionable, always chic and oh so stylish. Absolute perfection rolled up into 1 complete product. Thats me – i’m white alright 🙂

  86. Maria says:

    Wood Mushroom. Down to earth..

  87. Kirsten W says:

    I’d have to go the Charcoal – after all, it’s one of the 50 Shades of Grey. Does that mean Charcoal coloured sheets will spice up my bed life much like the book is doing??!!! I can only wish!!

  88. Michelle Gray says:

    White, nice fresh clean and crisp, in my mind that’s what I am 😉

  89. Morena Dobrowolski says:

    I dream of having white sheets, but I can’t blame the kids for not going there – it’s my forgetting to take my makeup off before I go to bed that makes it impossible. So, for practical reasons, I would choose Charcoal 🙂

  90. I am for white – crisp, classic and restful! Plus our bedroom is nautically themed, so would be classic with our navy trimmings!

  93. Charcoal Block just said Clive to me when I visited to site so it is all about hubby not me!

  94. Monica says:

    Chocolate coloured sheets…love being wrapted up in them! Eating chocolate in bed is less noticable too!

  95. Lauren Anastasiou says:

    Pearl Grey for me – because much as I hate to admit it, I can only keep up with ONE shade of grey!

  96. Kathryn Maree says:

    Like you, IVORY, for another reason…I love ‘tinkling the ivories’ and strumming guitar strings to put my hubbie and I in the mood.Excellent4play!
    PS Love your funny blog name and tagline Kellie!

  97. Jen Muir says:

    What can I say,
    but Pearl Grey,
    all the way.

  98. Jennifer B. says:

    I’m such a failed housewife… Surfaces are never quite dust-free or 100% gleaming, a white bathroom wouldn’t stay that way for long.

    So PEARL GREY is both practical and the perfect representation of me!!!

  99. Julia Robertson says:

    Pearl Grey like Christian Grey is simply too enticing….

  100. I am loving the sand pebble…a natural colour for an all natural girl.

  104. Linda Hoadley says:

    My colour is coffee
    Ironic for sure
    It keeps you awake
    While sheets make you snore…
    But coffee reminds me
    Of friendship and peace
    That hot morning brew
    The slow, sweet relief…
    Linen in “Coffee”
    A blissful night’s rest
    Plus coffee at morning
    And I’m at my best!
