A TIME TO DINE, A TIME TO RELAX

A TIME TO DINE, A TIME TO RELAX

By Camilla Swart

The September equinox, dated this year on 22 September, marked the beginning of spring in the Southern Hemisphere. In a nutshell, we are officially experiencing Spring in the southern hemisphere!

From this day onwards, the days grow longer and the nights shorter. This means that we can venture outside to enjoy long twilight dinners, rise earlier for sparkling spring breakfasts, and enjoy full sunny luncheons, all hopefully al fresco.

STOP AND SMELL THE FLOWERS

Spring
By Camilla Swart

Spring starts in August. Call me an idiot, but from the start of August I notice a slight softening of the cold air, later sun-sets, birds returning, flowering bulbs like daffodils, freesias and hyacinths sprouting and starting to flower. The jasmine that festoons walls and fences also begin to show small buds, promising the wonderful scents that properly herald spring. August is the month of hope, of anticipation, before the surge of September and spring proper bursts into our senses.

HEAR ME ROAR

Celebrating Women
By Camilla Swart

“I am woman, hear me roar” is the first line of the song written by Helen Reddy in the 1970’s which became the anthem of the feminist movement. To me it speaks only of empowerment, and the lyrics are applicable whether you are male or female.

DUCK DOWN THIS WINTER!

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

Winter isn’t coming – it’s here already, and with it the downright chilly weather that you either love or hate. 

Personally, I don’t like winter, and if you are similar to me, and suffer from ‘coldness,’ then I have just the product to keep you warm and comfortable all winter. Our grannies knew what they were doing when they layered on the eiderdowns (very plushy feather quilts) on our beds in winter.  Those eiderdowns were wonderfully warm and kept out the worst winter chills, but were bulky and cumbersome to use.

Does it really matter what type of blanket you sleep under?  At Linen Drawer we say “It most definitely does!” 

Our mission is to increase your sleep comfort; therefore, it is with pleasure that we would like to assist you in choosing a blanket for winter.

A BLANKET AFFAIR

Posted in Decor and Style

Your bed could become a productive unit in your everyday life! All you need is the right ‘equipment’ and attitude. Winter is the right time to cultivate that attitude. Spending more time in thoughtful contemplation under our wonderful blankets and throws. There are so many everyday tasks that can be done effectively from the comfort of your bed!

By ‘equipment’ I mean bedding and blankets. In winter, the fabulous Linen Drawer bedding takes second place to the Linen Drawer blankets. They occupy pride of place on your bed and contribute absolute comfort and warmth throughout the winter months.

A MONTH OF MOTHERS?

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

May is the month dedicated to mothers and motherhood. Mother’s Day falls in the middle of the month (13 May) this year, and we would like to dedicate the whole month to mothers.

By ‘mothers’ we naturally mean any woman who has had a nurturing influence in your life. Apart from my mother, who certainly influenced my life, I can count a handful of other women whose benevolent care shaped, and still affects, my life.

HOW TO LAUNDER YOUR BED LINEN

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

Laundry is a fact of life – like taxes and death, it spares no-one. Unless you are one of the fortunate few who can say that they never do laundry, this article might help you understand how best to care for your bed linen.

Linen Drawer attaches a wash care label to all bed linen. This shows the size, the fabric composition and the washing instructions. The washing instructions are the result of in depth knowledge of the fabric – not just something dreamed up by Linen Drawer, and for best results, should be adhered to as closely as possible when laundering the bed linen.

HOW TO CHOOSE BED LINEN?

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

Confronted by the mind boggling array of bedding and bed linen options available, what motivates your choice and how can you be sure it’s the best product for you?

At Linen Drawer we pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of bed linen, and what types of fabric are suitable for different climates and situations. A quick aside: We do not recommend polyester or polyester blend fabrics…ever, as they are not perfectly comfortable and do not have the healthy-sleep properties of pure cotton or pure linen bedding.

Moving On Swiftly?

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

Anyone who has moved house, flat or business will agree when I say that moving is an emotional and stressful time.  The warm glow of anticipation, the bright dream of new home/office/business premises, all fade day by day – whittled away by planning, planning and still more planning. 

Linen Drawer and Linen Drawer Manufacturing are moving premises in the last week of February/ early March. We have planned the move very carefully, in order to ensure a seamless transition and keep our clients’ orders rolling out, and hope that the execution is as meticulous as the planning.  Our customers’ requirements always come first, and our intention is minimum disruption and a smooth transfer from one location to the next.

NEW YEAR, NEW COLOURS, NEW YOU

Posted in Decor and Style

By Camilla Swart

This year has started with the Colour of the Year being pinned as Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet.  It is a complex shade of purple, towards the cooler end of the colour spectrum.  It suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, what lies ahead, and discoveries beyond where we are now.

MAKE UP DEMONS

At Linen Drawer we hear all the woes of laundry day – red wine, blood, sunblock, and the dreaded make-up stains!  Of course, as a host it is impossible to forbid guests to wear make-up, but these stains do seem to be tougher than most to eradicate from bed linen and towels.

Thank you for everything

Posted in Decor and Style

I look forward to writing this blog every year.  This is where the team from Linen Drawer express our sincere gratitude towards our clients, suppliers and co-workers.

Gratefulness has been proven to have physical benefits as well as the more obvious mental and spiritual benefits. 

Showing and experiencing gratitude is good for you.

Recent research has shown that people who express more gratitude have fewer aches and pains, better sleep and stronger mental clarity.
