We've been longtime fans of Jane Scott Hodges, the founder of Leontine Linens, and wanted to talk with her about all things style and interiors. Check out our interview below and shop the products here!
Where does your love for linens come from?
I discovered a treasure trove of heirloom family monogrammed linens when my parents restored their 1780 stone house. The care and attention to detail seemed lost to me in the offerings I could find in 1995. I wanted to create linens that were beautiful and personal but could be used every day and not relegated to a linen closet.
What inspired you to create Leontine Linens?
I was planning my wedding and fantasizing about my new married monogram.I had been looking for heirloom linens, and I had in my head what I wanted, but couldn’t find them. I wanted my great grandmother’s linens, but with a current sensibility. I knew if I was looking for these, others had to be as well.
How have you modernized the monogram?
The monogram was once solely thought of as a form of identification, today I encourage my clients to incorporate as a decorative element by using color, scale and personality! It should be thought of as an extension of your décor.
