Volpes unveils 2018 Spring/Summer linen range.

Spring has finally sprung, and Volpes is throwing open the windows to let in the fresh air and banish the winter cold! At South Africa’s favourite linen company they’re diving right into their refreshing designs for the whole of the warmer seasons. There’s nothing quite like knowing that sunnier days are on their way, and it’s the perfect time to banish the blues and give your home a much-needed Spring overhaul, complete with the latest trends from Volpes.

If there’s one room in the house that should really reflect your personal style, it’s got to be the bedroom. Globally, we’ve seen bedroom trends focusing strongly on a look that is both authentic and imperfect, sporting a lived-in feel that speaks endlessly of comfort and relaxation. Perfect for the busiest among us, this trend works well with a minimalist, contemporary, casual design style – think simple décor and washed cotton bedding ranges that never need ironing but always look irresistibly inviting for a nap!

Embellishments and texture are also set to take centre stage as the weather warms up. The handmade feeling that brings this trend to life will be reflected in our linen with pin tucks, embroidery and interesting weaves on summer throws. Textures that are irresistible to touch give your bedroom a playful edge and allow you to show your personal style in a truly unique way. And of course, nothing beats classic cotton when it comes to Summer. From high-thread Egyptian cotton to super soft vintage washed cotton, this quintessential fabric is the epitome of crisp Spring freshness and touch. The season calls for optic whites, neutrals, pinks, duck eggs and of course the ever-trendy grey, all of which will work perfectly to enhance those textured details like piping, embroidery, pintucks and oxford boarders on a Summer bed.

Pair them with accessories like light-weight plush throws, waffle-weave blankets, fringes on scatters and tufted carpets for the ultimate chic texture combo. While the bed should always be the centre of your slumber sanctuary, don’t forget the difference that an incredible set of curtains can make. A brilliant way to add texture and interest to a space, why not incorporate extra wide light and airy sheers to bring more brightness in, or linen look curtains for a more natural style. Even a subtle elegant woven design can take your room to a whole new level–curtains are a must for truly finishing a rooms design.

t’s no surprise that foliage and botanicals remain high on our list of trends this season. Be bold and incorporate anything from lush leaf prints to gentle illustrative birds and animals into your bedroom, which are stunning when paired with clean whites and neutral colour palettes. At Volpes we’re celebrating this trend by using our huge range of scatter designs to underpin our elegant linen ranges, making linen the classic hero with a distinct nature inspired feature – is there anything more elegant?

As always, blue remains on our trends radar, and this season it’s all about beating the blues by mixing darker indigo and denim shades with a base of beautiful whites and neutrals. Find this irresistible palette at Volpes in our geometric prints, beachy stripes, trendy ombres and of course our classic floral prints across our duvet sets, quilts, scatters and curtains. If you’re looking for something a little more luxe, this year it’s been all about metallics. Adding a little metallic accent through lamps, side tables, door handles and mirrors can create a distinct chic edge to your space–start moving away from rose golds and coppers by sticking to the brassier end of the spectrum to be truly on trend.

Spring and Summer are synonymous with florals, and while this timeless trend will forever be in style, staying in vogue is all about how you use them. Think pretty touches of floral rather than going overboard in your room and stick to white or pastel bases to give your space a really fresh feel. At Volpes, you can expect stylish printed linen in gentle, modern pastel shades, complete with everything from birds and foliage to bold, stylish modern prints. Towards the end of the season, keep your eye out for brighter and bolder colours, too.

Volpes strives to inspire customers with beautiful designs that are on trend, accessible and easily incorporated into their individual bedrooms. All Volpes prints are carefully selected to mix in easily with our plain ranges, creating ample opportunity to switch things up when you’re in need of a change.

Rather than looking at disposable fashion, our designs are chosen to last and to give our customers the opportunity to create a space that really illustrates their personal style. No matter how you choose to style it, a Volpes bedroom will always be the ultimate relaxation haven.
