Linens For Every Room And Occasion


3 Things I Like About This Book:

  • Plenty of drool-worthy pictures of beautiful rooms, gorgeous beds/bedrooms and lovely table settings–all displaying exquisite bed linens, coverlets, tablecloths and napkins. I have a whole new appreciation for the beauty special linens can add to a room.
  • Lots of great examples of how embroidered, monogrammed, lace embellished linens are perfect in any style home, be it modern or traditional, grand or small. This book will make you want to pull out those gorgeous linens you’ve been saving and start using them. Now! 🙂
  • Contains lots of practical advice on how to use, store and care for linens. If you love shopping for special linens, this book is a must because it contains a wealth of information that would be helpful in identifying those special pieces. I especially enjoyed the section titled “There is no wrong way to make the bed.” So many great ideas in this book!

  2. I love old linens. My mother was an excellent needleworker. Her embroidered pieces are so beautifully done. I cherish every stitch now that the is gone and love every item with all my heart.

    Can’t wait to check out this book. My mother and three other people in my family worked magic with needlework –alas, that talent passed me by, but I do so appreciate lovely linens and all the time involved. My aunt once made a tablecloth that took almost seven years of fine stitchery–my cousin, her daughter, is now the lucky recipient of that amazing work of art. I have several books on linens. One of my favorite forms of needlework is trapunto, which is similar to matelasse, but much more intricate and the relief much higher. Some of the antique trapunto work is amazing. I’m also a big fan of a raised satin stitch, which makes great monograms and designs on clothing. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful books. I simply can’t afford to purchase them all, however I can sit in a comfortable chair at Barnes and Noble and look at the ones without wrappings whenever the mood strikes–a great winter pastime. Hope your week-end is full of happy times.

  4. Susan, this book looks great have just ordered it from the library.
    Linens are one of my weaknesses. When in France and England two summers ago, I bought back two beautiful tablecloths from France, one with Lavender and matching napkins and another, made of heavy woven cotton material with all pastry motifs on it, hard to describe but beautiful.
    I also found a lovely little shop in Cornwall, England, called The English Woman and bought two sets of pillowslips, one set with blue sailing ships down the edge,the other edged in cotton lace, these were both linen.
    There is nothing like the touch of fine linens.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
