Brera Lino by Designers Guild

Plain fabrics are the key to a cohesive interior scheme. Whether you’re looking for a simplistic, minimalist style or an accentuating plain to complement the patterned elements in your room, these fabrics offer the flexibility to create the look you desire.

A beautiful example is the best-selling Brera Lino fabric by Designers Guild. A tactile plain made from pure linen, this delightful fabric is enriched with natural charm perfect for creating an airy, luxurious feel. Brera Lino is available in 153 versatile colour ways to complement an array of interior design styles and colour schemes. With a superb drape, this fabric is a fantastic choice for curtains and blinds, as well as cushions and upholstery.

Styling with Patterned Fabrics

A plain collection in its own right, Brera Lino by Designers Guild also complements the brand’s patterned fabric ranges.

If you have chosen a patterned fabric for your curtains, you could use the Brera Lino fabric to pick up on the design’s accent colours for a coordinating plain roman blind or cushion. This will help to create an effortlessly stylish layered look without detracting from the main feature pattern. Equally, you may wish to keep your curtains plain and simply layer plain and patterned cushions in tonal colours on a chair, sofa or bed for a cohesive scheme that flows throughout the room.

Colour Inspiration

Brera Lino spans across a beautiful palette of softer tones and neutrals through to more vivacious shades. Whether you’d like to keep your colour scheme more calming and natural or inject a splash of colour, this Designers Guild plain linen is the perfect go-to.

Colour of the Year

If you’re looking for a powerful, transformative shade to enliven your home, you could consider the bold Cranberry colour way.

Similar to Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2023, Viva Magenta, this exciting tone brings confidence to your scheme in a way that creates an air of positivity and optimism. It adds a vibrancy and flair to soft furnishings for a real focal point in your room.

Spring Refresh

For a spring refresh, consider natural tones such as earthy greens and soft pinks. These reflect the natural world and help bring a touch of the outside in. The Designers Guild Brera Lino Olive, Apple and Quartz Rose colour ways work particularly well. Team with a stunning floral pattern for an air of floral romance.

Light pastels such as the beautiful Primrose yellow shade also work well for an air of spring freshness.


Adding pops of bright colour to your scheme through window dressings, cushions and other soft furnishings is a great way to tap into the maximalist trend.

Bold colours in the Brera Lino palette such as Mango, Saffron, Paprika, Lagoon and Lime teamed with busy patterns work well to add an element of contrast for a striking maximalist statement.
