I first encountered Sanctuary Boutique Linens at this year’s Life Instyle trade show. Their dynamic Black Skulls & Roses pillow cases – which adorned a bed they’d set up in their stall – caught my eye from miles away.
As I got closer to the stall and realised that they’d paired the pillowcases with a diamond-print flat sheet and equally stunning quilt, I wanted to run in slow motion toward the bed like a scene from a movie, dive in and declare it ‘the one’.
But because getting into display beds in public is frowned upon and I was concerned I’d encounter a situation with security, I simmered my excitement, politely gushed over how much I adored the collection and told the lovely lady behind the brand, Simone Rennard, that I simply had to have her on the blog.
So here we are! Let’s find out more about this local creative, her gorgeous bedding brand, and make sure you see below for details on how you can win some!
This is a TLC Solution for Sanctuary Boutique Linens.
What you Need to Know about Sanctuary Boutique Linens
The biz is driven by Simone and her mum Anne, and was born in 2014.
“Mum and I had just finished studying Interior Design,” Simone tells me. “We were always drawn to textiles, wallpapers and patterns by designers such as Matthew Williamson and Christian Lacroix, and soon realised it was hard to get that patterned and unique look in the home at an affordable price. So we decided it was time to put some art on bedding and cushions”.
Art and Nature heavily influence the bedding designs.
“You’ll continue to see this as a recurring theme throughout our ranges,” Simone explains. “The ethos behind our look is ‘elegant with an edge’. which makes us unique”.
Choosing her fave design from the collection isn’t easy.
“It’s way too hard to play favourites with our designs. I change my bedroom every week depending on which quilt/sheet combo I feel like going with!”.
The range is designed to be mix-and-match.
“The beauty of our products is that they can be used in so many different ways,” Simone says. “My current bedroom look is greenery galore, including the Toucs & Tiges quilt and pillow cases paired with minty-green sheets. Next week it will probably be the Black Skulls & Roses design and charcoal sheets”.
Life Instyle gave them the confidence to go global.
“Life Instyle Melbourne was such a great learning experience and the reaction was fantastic. Since then, we have exhibited at New York Now in August and will be back for Life InStyle Sydney in February”.
The future is looking bold and bright.
“We have some crazy cool patterns tucked up our sleeves that you’ll start to see appearing over the next few ranges. You’ll also see us add new products to our list of goodies but of course, you’ll have to wait and see”.
