  3. It looks so relaxed and comfortable. Inviting. I love the table clothes and the ruched linen duvet.

  4. I love the way they drape, all crinkled and lovely. I'v always thought that non-pajama linen clothing requires too much ironing to be truly relaxing (it's wrinkled again by the time you get where you're going!), but I love how the aesthetic with Arte Pura seems to favor a bit more of that naturally wrinkled texture. I'm in love with the tablecloths that have the lace borders along the edge. The stitching is gorgeous and the colors are so deep yet not loud.

  5. Beddra Matre santissima! That is lovely. I shall go to Trouvais right away, even though I already the post...(thanks for your comment btw..the photo is to cheer up a fellow blogger is having a difficult time.)

  6. Such beauty! Linen has become my favorite fabric - so simple and elegant. Love the lace trimmed table cloth. How pretty a setting it would make for an afternoon garden party.

  7. Absolutely fabulous! The linen looks just gorgeous and any bed would be lucky to be dressed in these!

  8. Alas! Alack! A Blog, I have none. Merely a lowly reader...a voracious reader...but lowly reader. I agree with Trouvais that the front of your store is simply perfect. Simplicity takes a great eye and great restraint...and the linen is delicious.

  9. I love the detail work. The classic esthetic, and of course, the tablecloth.

  10. No wonder Trish loves Arte Pura products...they remind me of her elegant and sophisticated style...the palette, the fabric...the rough luxe speaks of Trouvais and Beadboard Upcountry as well...
    I would love to have these dreamy linens in my home!

  11. What a pleasure to find your give away of a beautiful Arte Pura linen pillow. I love the look and fee of simple natural fibers. I find it very homey and inviting. One of my favorites is the lace trimmed table cloth. I would love to have any of these in my home. I wish your store we closer, it is very much my style.

  12. Hello,
    Melanie of Le Petit Cabinnet sent me to meet you. Arte Pura linens! Wow, what attention to detail. It's nice also to hear of your shop also. Next time I'm in your neck of the woods, I'll drop by.

  13. What I love the most is the entire design aesthetic behind this line.In Italian, Arte Pura, Di Fianco al Paradiso translates into Pure Art, Beside Heaven or At Heaven's Side. Whoever the design priciple is,to conceive such a beautiful line and label it so aptly surely must be an angel!I love all of it, the bedding and the clothing makes you want to covet every last thing.Thank you Trish for letting me find it and Maryanne, we are planning on visiting your shop this September during Marburger antique week. Kind regards, Nella (Ontario,Canada)

  32. Anything Italian and made of linen is a thing of beauty. On a hot night lay your head on a linen pillow and feel the softness of the fabric. Fantastico.

  33. Nothing better than linen for summer - linens many weaves and weights offer options for clothing and bedding and I collect and covet any and all linen-Arte Pura's collection offers the home style and whimsy-a wonderful expression for life and linen!

  34. I came here to give you an award and found you are hosting an amazing give-away!

    First things first.
    I love your blog and your style. Coming here is always such a treat and I would like you to know you make me happy!
    I have therefore nominated you for an award over at my site. I hope you can pop over and pick it up.

    Arte Pura is magnificent and I jumped across to Trish and onto the main site to have a look.
    I feel head over heels for the very first linen table cloth (with the frills). My heart is dreaming of that one!

    Good luck everyone and thank you Maryanne!

    xx Charlotta

  35. I feel a little late to the party but I have very recently fallen in love with everything linen. I am well and truly obsessed ! Constantly searching the internet for anything linen. That's how I discovered Trouvais and by extension the gorgeous Arte Pura. Now I really need an intervention. LOL~ Kelly
