Another special thanks to Laura Vinroot Poole, owner of Capitol in Charlotte, for Lunch on the Porch with the charming and beautiful Jane Scott Hodges (this event also honored fashion designer, Lela Rose). This engaging young woman revived the art of couture linens for everyday use when she started her now world-renowned company in a back bedroom of her home.
As founder and owner of Leontine Linens, Jane Scott has spent the past two decades studying, collecting and innovating the world of fine linens. Today her unique designs and monograms are found in the homes of major celebrities, top interior designers and just ordinary people like me, who like to be surrounded by little personal and beautiful things.
Magazines, from House Beautiful and Veranda to People, show us glossy photos of Jane’s work on display in homes from castles to cottages owned by stars and all who love a little elegance and color. Her fresh, appealing approach to everyday linens shows us how we can, and should, create heirlooms and memories for our children and enjoy them everyday, not just at the dinner table on holidays. As Jane points out, linens are intimate items…we bathe with them, sleep with them, and dine with them. They can be formal or they can be colorful and playful.
You can be inspired to start your own collection of Leontine Linens by enjoying Jane Scott Hodges’ book Linens for Every Room and Occasion. What a great idea for a Christmas gift with perhaps a set of cocktail napkins or cozy pajamas.
Leontine Linens are loved by all who want to enjoy a little luxury in our everyday lives.
