The scallop interiors trend certainly seems here to stay and, as Karen notes, REED’s Scallop bed linen collection is crafted for longevity. “Whereas more common, machine-embroidered scallop edges will quickly unravel in the wash and with everyday use, our Scallop bed linen collection has a hand-applied bias edging,” Karen explains. “This means that the edges will maintain their crisp scallop for many years to come.”
“I also adore our Sandringham collection at this time of year,” adds Karen. “The delicately embroidered floral design was inspired by the bluebells and wildflowers that spring up in the house’s grounds, and I find the design’s fresh green border instantly uplifting.” The collection uses REED’s white 400 thread count single yarn Percale fabric, which feels crisper, tighter and is cooler for the warmer months. What’s more, it is highly durable, so it washes extremely well too.
For those feeling braver using pastel shades, Karen suggests taking the look one step further by swapping a white-based bed linen for a full-colour design such as REED’s Four Row Cord bed linen collection in delicate pink, which has contrasting satin cord stitching in white. “This is an unashamedly feminine bed linen look, but the delicacy of the blush-pink hue makes it incredibly easy to live with, and to style in your own way.”
