Treat yourself to new designer bed linen this winter

This is the perfect time of year to treat yourself to some gorgeous new designer bed linen. The nights are getting longer and temperatures are falling. On chilly evenings, there is nothing better than sinking into indulgent bedding. As well as boosting the look of your bedroom, it can also help ensure you feel comfy and snug when you climb under your sheets at night. Feeling the chill The British weather is notoriously hard to predict, but it seems as though this winter may be a cold one. According to a report in the Daily Mail, forecasters have warned of a “very potent” Arctic plunge, with snow likely. It also noted that the British Weather Services have suggested this winter will be colder than average, with ‘significant snow’ in store for Britons. The organisation suggested that temperatures of -18C lie ahead and transport disruption is also probable. Simple and quick Meanwhile, it doesn’t matter if you’re too busy to head out to the shops to stock up on new bedding. Instead of hitting the high street, you can source the products you want online. This means you can do it from the comfort of home or even while you’re on a lunch break at work. Also, this approach circumvents the problems of heavy traffic, difficult parking and crowded shops and streets. A big difference It’s incredible how much of a difference new bed linen can make to entire rooms. Simply replacing your current duvet and pillow covers with new versions can radically change the whole look of the space. Of course, the style you go for will depend on your interior design themes and your personal preferences. You might want to opt for a contemporary set that exudes modern chic, or perhaps something more rustic and homely would suit you better. Take your pick Here at Christy, we’re passionate about great bedding and should have exactly what you’re after. We pride ourselves on the innovative and luxurious qualities of our products and you can have complete confidence when you shop with us. Our bed linen UK is second to none and may be perfect for you. Our design team create original and inspiring collections that can help define your home. Petra Maybe Petra would suit your bedroom perfectly. Its classic paisley print on a glossy sateen weave could add some real luxury and style to your home and it comes in a rich shade of mocha, finished with a deep red sateen weave. Natalie Another great option is the Natalie design. This vibrant number is colour woven for a look that’s bold, fresh and fun. Meanwhile, it’s finished with grosgrain ribbon detailing. Copenhagen You might also be captivated by the Copenhagen. This has an understated look and its subtle shades of grey give a modern look.

Welcome to our Blog

Welcome to our blog – and it gives me great pleasure to say that. We’ve been anticipating this moment for some time and now that it’s here I’m delighted to be able to waffle on about our new collections! But first, for the sake of the uninitiated, let me tell you a little about Christy. Not many companies can boast a tradition as interesting as ours. We’ve been crafting towels and linens since 1850, always using only the very finest premium yarns, constructions and finishes. Queen Victoria herself was one of our earliest and undoubtedly most illustrious fans. Which we’re extremely proud of. And hey, not only are our towels and bedlinen are fit for royalty, they may even make you feel a bit more royal! Whilst we try to hold fast to our traditions where quality is concerned, we’re not afraid to ring the changes on designs and colour, we believe that glorious comfort should be a visual feast as well, every bit as fab as it is luxurious. As Christy’s design manager, that’s where I come in. With my love of travel, culture, and design, and years of experience (never mind how many), it is both my job and my passion to try to stop you in your tracks with “wow factor” products. I’m fascinated by colour, fastidious about getting it right, and absolutely evangelical about a new favorite shade. In other words, I love a pile of delicious bed linens just as much as you do. I came to Christy so I could love working on gorgeous products. I hope you’ve come to Christy to enjoy them too! I do hope you’ll follow along as we introduce our gorgeous Autumn/Winter collections. Who knows, you may find your dream linens and your inner Queen Victoria! (We’ll get back to you on the handsome prince.) Love, Lucy

 

 
 

How to create a warm and welcoming bathroom

Apart from your living room, the bathroom is probably the one room a guest will visit in a property. Therefore, it is understandable that you will want to create a warm, welcoming and impressive environment. A Bathroom Colour Before you start buying bathroom products, you should think carefully about the colour of your interior. The shade you choose will help set off the style, so it’s important you take into account the existing colours in the room. For example, if you have white tiles with a blue pattern then you could opt for bathroom towels in a similar shade. If you have black bathroom cabinets and drawers then red bath mats might help make the room come alive. Traditional versus Modern If your home is incredibly modern with smooth, clean lines then you should buy contemporary accessories to match. However, if the property has a traditional feel throughout but the bathroom is very modern then it will make your home seem a little disjointed. Therefore, pick a style that suits your taste and rooms and stick to it. Complementary Fabrics Many people often make the mistake of purchasing the first bath rugs or towels they see without taking into account their style or interior colour. Therefore, it’s important that you choose bath mats or rugs that complement your towel shades or vice versa – as this will create a harmonised look. You can opt for contrast shades, but homeowners should be 100% sure that the colours will bring out the best in each other. Otherwise, your bathroom will become memorable for all the wrong reasons. Match Your Accessories to Your Towels Home owners should ensure that every accessory in their bathroom also matches their towels and mats. For example, if you purchase green towels and bath mats then make sure you choose colour coordinating toothbrush holders, soap dishes, soap dispensers etc. Home owners who want to make a big impression on their guests should opt for designer towels and mats, as they will all be designed by talented professionals and created from the highest quality fabrics. Also, as well as making your bathroom look truly stunning, they will also feel great against your skin – so you can indulge yourself in pure luxury during a relaxing retreat in your bathroom. Unsure about who are the biggest and best bathroom fabric designers? Simply take a look at our stunning ranges from Harlequin, Amy Butler and Clarissa Hulse, as these popular and creative designers have built up an enviable reputation in the home ware industry due to their beautiful and innovative designs. If you are looking for high quality and stylish designer bathroom mats and rugs, browse our stunning collections today. You won’t be disappointed.

 
 

The Perfect Bedroom Style

Your bedroom is one of the most relaxing rooms within the home, so you will undoubtedly want it to be beautiful and welcoming. One way to ensure this is to incorporate high quality bed linen into your room, and that’s exactly what we can provide you with here at Christy. A bedroom is the place where you can really express your style, as it is your private retreat from the rest of the world. Therefore, it’s important you make the most of the space and decorate it in a way that suits your taste. Here at Christy we have a plethora of bed linen designs available for both modern and traditional tastes. We can also provide luxury bedding which has all the elegance of convention but with a contemporary twist. While many homeowners often choose the bed covers around their interior shades, we recommend you approach the design the other way around. Don’t settle for any old bed sheets just because they match your wallpaper; pick quality bedding that suits your taste and design your room around it. Simply select a shade from the duvet cover and choose wallpaper to match – you can guarantee it will make your whole room come alive. Luxury Bed Sheets If both comfort and style are your main priorities, then you should definitely consider Egyptian cotton sheets for pure luxury. These exquisite sheets are available in a flat or fitted style, and have a high thread count for ultimate soft and silkiness. With six colours available for order on our website, you are sure to find the perfect shade to harmonise with your bed covers. Another luxurious option is the supima bedding sheets which are available in four magnificent shades. You can choose from a valance of fitted or flat bed sheet and can also opt for a duvet and pillowcase to match or contrast. Created from extra long American staple cotton, it has a silky feel will help you relax after a long, hard day. However, is convenience would better suit your lifestyle, we recommend polycotton bed sheets as they are easy to care for and require little ironing. Also, with a 200 thread count, you can rest assured you will have a blissful night’s sleep. Our polycotton sheets are available as a flat, fitted or valance sheet and come in six stunning colours. Therefore, whether you have a single, double, king or king size bed, you are sure to find the ideal bed sheets to match. Once you’ve chosen your bed linen, you should move onto opting for curtains, cushions and throws that match the bedding. Choosing complementary curtains will only add to the overall design of the room, and will make a focal point of your fabrics. So, if you are looking for elegant and stylish designer bed linen, make Christy your first and only port of call.

Think about the Weather The weather can affect our sleeping patterns. The last thing a person needs is a duvet with a high tog in the hot summer, or a thin duvet in the colder weather. Therefore, make sure you provide your guest with a duvet tog that is suitable to the current climate. Also, have a few extra pillows on hand just in case they prefer sleeping with two or more. High Quality Towels Your guest will undoubtedly need to use your bathroom at some point, so ensure it complements the rest of the home. One way to do this is by placing stylish, quality towels for your guest to use. You could even provide them with a guest towel and bath robe to make them feel right at home. However, be sure that your hand and bath towels complement your mats and rug shades; otherwise, it could potentially look a little garish. Therefore, harmonise your bathroom fabrics with complementary or similar shades; for example, red and black work well together, as does green and yellow. So, what are you waiting for? Browse our extensive array of towels and bedding today.
