Top 5 luxury bedroom textiles

Surround yourself with luxurious textiles and patterns for tranquil bedrooms.

1. Blanc des Vosges: Cadences and Valauris


Blanc des Vosges

With a pedigree dating back to 1843, Blanc des Vosges’ Fall/Winter bed linen collection emphasises comfort. Taking their cue from hipster chic, Cadence and Valauris are sets of printed percale with 200 thread counts available in fitted sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases. Against a neutral background, bright splashes of yellow and blue are paired with organic shapes in black. Check out the collection at Blanc des Vosges’ new flagship store, a 1,000-square-foot space in Mira Place.

2. Cole & Son: Icons


Cole & Son

England-based Cole & Son has been making excellent wallcovering featuring memorable design and luxurious materials since 1875. This season, it celebrates some of its most iconic patterns with Icons, a contemporary collection of wallpapers. Miami, for example, references a retro aesthetic that combines tropical floral and fauna motifs with the stately terraces and colonnades found in Florida homes. Rajapur Flock, by contrast, is an oversize paisley print with textured flock that is reminiscent of imperial rooms in Raj palaces. Both patterns are ideal for injecting a little fantasy into the most private of spaces to inspire colourful dreams.


3. de Gournay: Folding Screens


de Gournay

Hong Kong units are notoriously space challenged, and one way to carve out a corner in a studio for rest and sleep is with a decorative folding screen. High-end British decorative brand de Gournay, known for its custom Chinoiserie wallpapers, offers several beautiful hand-painted folding screens that can be tailored with specific designs, colours and backgrounds to suit virtually any concept. Whether it is the painterly atmosphere of a Raphael Navot design, or the delicate florals against a metallic sheen of bespoke Chinoiserie, de Gournay offers arresting visuals while providing privacy in open spaces.


4. Jane Churchill: Bedroom Collection


Jane Churchill

English textile manufacturer Jane Churchill looks to country living for inspiration. Its bedroom collection consists of charming prints against off white backgrounds that are perfect for easy yet elegant bedrooms. Gold and grey, one of the palettes available, can be found in floral, geometric, stripes and solid fabrics that feature embroidery, prints and weaves. The one-stop textile shop offers plenty of options for individualistic mismatching as well as traditional matching of cushions, curtains, valences, chair upholstery, headboard fabrics and bedcovers. The overall effect will make you want to linger over breakfast in bed.


5. Lane Crawford: Lane Crawford Home


Lane Crawford

Hong Kong style aficionados will rejoice to learn that Lane Crawford now has its own line of excellent linens for outfitting a bedroom with aplomb. Its striped set of duvet cover, sheet and pillowcases offer 500 thread count silky cotton sateen in the staple colours of champagne and charcoal. Those seeking a little more oomph will love the watercolour house embroidery duvet set, with its simple landscape embroidery on woven linen blend fabric featuring 800 thread count. Throw in a graphic Peruvian baby alpaca or cotton velvet cushion in a restful hue or pattern, and the bedroom is transformed into a sheltering cocoon.
