INSPIRING AUTUMN!

INSPIRING AUTUMN!

By Camilla Swart

The months of April, May and June are technically known as ‘autumn’ in South Africa; characterised by cooler mornings and evenings, with lovely temperate days. 

Autumn is a good time to assess your home décor. Take note of the colour and décor trends, adding or subtracting key pieces to update your style for the year ahead.  Cooler days mean more energy, which translates into creativity and enterprise.

Linen Drawer is not lagging when it comes to this. This is a great time of year to introduce new products and designs, so without too much preamble we introduce our new embroidery designs!

LIVING CORAL

Colour of the year 2019

Living Coral has been chosen as the Pantone colour of the year, sparking controversy because there is so little coral left that is alive! However, as we are optimists at Linen Drawer, we believe that the colour, and any discussion of the shade can only draw attention to the plight of our coral reefs.

SLEEPING COMFORT

SLEEPING COMFORT

By Camilla Swart

Ta-daa!! Introducing Linen Drawer’s newest product – PURE COTTON DUVET INNERS!

I have been privileged to own one of these duvet inners for a while now and I can honestly say that my sleeping life has changed! Having a ‘hot’ sleeping partner is great, but not a joke when they are always too warm and you are always too cold.

I am fortunate to own pure cotton bedding, and can testify to the joys of a 100% pure cotton duvet inner!

Traditionally the last blog post of the year is one of thanks.  This one is absolutely no different, except that we, at Linen Drawer, have additional thanks to extend to our clients, agents, suppliers and employees.

GIVING MEANING

GIVING MEANING

By Camilla Swart

Christmas!  Do you feel an upwelling of joy and anticipation when you hear the word, or dread and anxiety about overspending?

Every year I used to suffer from Shoppingitus Xmasia a deadly creepy, unshakeable condition, which manifests as the fanatical search for the perfect gift for everyone on your gift list. Relief came from my wise and long-suffering husband, who pointed out that perfection was best not pursued in this area, adding that the most precious gift of all, was time.

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.

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.
