Meet Sanctuary Boutique Linens + Win a Bedding Pack worth up to $339.95!

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

Sanctuary Boutique Linens Black Skulls and Roses The Life Creative Blog

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”.

    I love reading your blogs! These Sanctuary Boutique Linens are all so beautiful! My favourite would have to be the diamonds and cactus cushions combination. It’s so fresh and crisp looking but the cactus adds a bit of edge, my style all over! I do love the Toucs & Tiges design, so moody and colourful and would blend with so many styles. A great gift set that one would be!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win such gorgeous quality linen! What an indulgence!

    I am completely, utterly and totally IN LOVE with the Snakes & Peonies blue and purple colour way….and I don’t even like snakes!! That said, I’d do anything to have them snakes on my bed!! Cactus cushions are also divine! These gals certainly have some talent and I cany wait to see future designs!

    Another amazing find Chris!! Following you both 🙂
    They’re all incredible, but I can’t go past the ‘snakes and peonies’ in the blue/mauve that’s on pre-order as my favourite. Holy wow, what a dynamic print/colour combo! I’m head over heels for the watercolour effect… And the quilting detail is just dreamy!

    PS congrats on the shop, you’ve sourced such a great collection of gorgeous pieces x

    I adore the Snakes and Peonies in blue/mauve, it looks so pretty and feminine from a distance but has that quirky twist with the snakes!

    Great to see some designs out of the ordinary. I love the addition of snakes & skulls! My favorite is Snakes & Peonies in the pink colourway though the skulls & roses in grey is very tempting too!

    22 September, 2015
  • Nothing says “I love Rock ‘n’ Roll” more than some badass Black Skulls & Roses on your bed! And of course this must be paired some pink Snakes and Peonies for pillow cases. May as well become a biker as well, just to cap off the look. LOVE SBT! xx

    Oh this is fabulous – thanks so much for sharing!!

    I adore the skulls and roses in grey – it is neutral enough for hubby but fabulously divine when you look at the print close up – I would love it with the diamond sheets and those amazing cactus cushions.

    Such gorgeous and individual designs, I’m struggling to decide which one is my fave! The skulls and roses design is so funky, uninhibited and wild, but the toucs and tiges is so fresh and reminds me of a fun summer beach holiday so that would have to be my favorite choice!

    I’ve just seen the grey skulls and roses featured on The Block and fell in LOVE! Then I had a peek at Sanctuary’s page and saw the black and now I’m torn between the two. Plus everything else I saw over there. I think it would have to be the grey. No the black. Grey. Black. Grey. Yes, the grey. I think..

    23 September, 2015
  • Um, obviously the “Snakes & Peonies” because clearly I NEED it in my life. I don’t even know where to start explaining why. Watercolour. PURPLE. SO MUCH PURPLE. Snakes. PEONIES. Those flowers are in season for such a heart breakingly short time in Australia so getting to sleep with them every night is the next best thing to having vases of them all around the house <3

    LOVE reading your blog it fills my morning with so many new ideas and thoughts. Love the crazy mix of peonies diamonds and kus in all different hues. Sanctuary Boutiqe Linen has some funky cool innovative on trend ideas, they are very exciting.

    24 September, 2015
  • I LOVE the beauty and juxtaposition of all Sanctuary Boutique Linen but my fave is Black Skulls & Roses. A hint of one of my style icons Frida Kahlo, combined with extraordinary artistic detail in blooms and birds this design is for the brave and individual decorator! I like bold designs and Black Skulls & Roses has won my heart.

    24 September, 2015
  • Wow, I agree with the wanting to jump in, funnily enough I made comment to mum how I liked the block duos bedding and wondered what brand it was! And sure bough as if on cue I get the email with this directly in front of me!! But as much as loved the one they used on the block “punk grandma” I do adore the darker one with the pink, roses, purples and greens. Great colours to make a white room like mine pop! Congrats on the collection guys

    It’s TOUCANS & TIGERS for me… an exotic yet calming mix of my favourite colours (and bird), a splash of orange for vibrancy and dark enough to hide the errant dog’s occasional paw prints!

    I really cant go past the snakes and peonies in blue/mauve. The watercolour is beautiful and mixed with the more masculine images makes this such a great universal cover. Plus I just love blue.

    How Fabulous are the girls at Sanctuary Boutique Linens for keeping it real and totally original with their designs.
    I have been a massive fan of the artist Llew Mejia since his colaborations with Element Skateboards and Anthropologie and I silently screamed when I saw the crazy amazing BLACK SKULLS & ROSES design! I love anything that is tropical and Mexican influenced and I would love to style this gorgeous piece in my home!!!

    SNAKES & PEONIES COVERLET – BLUE/MAUVE. I love the colour palette, it’d work really well with my room. It’s feminine but not over the top so it really appeals to a wide range of people. I’d never have thought of having snakes on my quilt but somehow this works beautifully. If anything I think it makes the quilt!

    Completely torn between the Black Skulls & Roses quilt, the Skulls & Roses Duvet and the Snakes & Peonies. I have been eyeing off the skull ones for months now and couldn’t decide which one I liked more. The grey Skulls & Roses is a timeless piece, It’s simple yet so brilliant at the same time.

    The whole Sanctuary range is absolutely gorgeous, but if I had to choose it’d have to be the Black Skulls & Roses because it’s punk as f**k!!!
