In early 1996, designer (and Bella Notte founder) Kathleen McCoy was a jacket designer, responsible for a line of polar fleece jackets under the name Marinwear. Her concept was one of “casual elegance,” elegant yet easy to wear, and easy to care for. Eager to innovate – and fond of linen – she decided to try her jacket styles in linen. Her new jackets received praise – but her buyers didn’t buy them. Faced with a couple hundred yards of unused linen lying around, she asked herself “why not try it in bedding.”


One thing led to another, and Bella Notte Linens was established by the end of the year. At its core, Kathleen’s concept was relatively simple: her favorite fabrics, soothing colors, easy elegance. Her bedding was machine washable; whereas other high-end bedding at the time was dry clean only. Also against convention, she made arrangements with a local dyer to have her bedding garment dyed, which involves dyeing pre-finished linens as opposed to yarn dyeing, where dyeing takes place prior to weaving. This was initially implemented to ensure consistency between fabrics, but the garment dyeing process also lent additional benefits; dyeing linens that have been woven and preshrunk allows for deeper color and a softer hand.

Bella Notte began celebrating its 25th Anniversary earlier this year, adding Taline – a tasseled collection of two-tone pillows and throws – and Poppy – a luscious lipstick red dye – to its line up. Now, the fall introductions. Rounding out Bella’s 25th Anniversary intros are Harlow, a subtle twist on Bella’s existing Austin collection, and two special new dyes – Fig and Moonlight.

Exceptionally sophisticated, Fig is a richly saturated garnet tone. A ripe and juicy purple with reddish undertones, it is described as a “confident color for the home,” mixing the energy of red with the calmness of blue. In contrast, Moonlight is a mid tone grey tone that varies in depth like the night sky under a moonlit reflection. It glows enchantingly in silk charmeuse, shows off its depth in velvet, and calms in linen. Intentionally introduced for Bella’s Silver Anniversary, it is a peaceful color that offers a calming, neutral base for the more spirited colors in Bella’s collection.

This just in: Bella Notte has discontinued its Helane collection. Unfortunately we were given little notice; if you are looking to purchase Helane bedding, we can submit a request to Bella Notte and they will consider it!

The color Rosegold is also being discontinued – but it remains available while supply (dye) lasts, or until May 31st, whichever comes first.

Stay tuned for Bella’s fall intros…

The new year is said to be a time for new beginnings, and new energy. This idea feels especially prevalent as we gradually move on from 2020. We remain anxious to see all that our vendors have in store for us. For now: Christian Fishbacher has released a new catalog; Sferra continues to show off its new K三 Collection, an innovative collaboration with the late Kenzo Takada that was debuted in November; Yves Delorme has teased us with one new pattern from its upcoming Spring collection (see below).

For Bella Notte, 2021 is especially special, as it marks their 25th Anniversary. While there will surely be more special introductions to come, Bella’s Spring intros, just announced, are surely welcome for now. Prominent additions to the line include Taline, a tasseled collection of two-tone pillows and throws, which feature charmeuse reversing to linen, and Poppy. Poppy is a lipstick red dye that may represent Bella’s most luscious color yet; it looks romantic on linen, evocative in silk, and lush on velvet.

Halloween is now also widely celebrated by us Italians, with its sense of fun and mischievousness first seen in home decorations. Obviously, like good Italians, we had to start with a welcoming table. Dea Luxury Linens presents a Halloween special, the elegant Mediterraneo tablecloth whose neat orange insets evoke the occasion. Utterly irresistible. – La festa di Halloween è ormai entrata nel cuore anche di noi italiani. Un'atmosfera divertente e giocosa, che si manifesta a partire dalle decorazioni per la casa. E da buoni italiani, non potevamo non partire dalla cura della tavola, luogo principe di convivialità. Per caratterizzare con eleganza la tavola per Halloween, Dea Luxury Linens presenta una special edition. La tovaglia Mediterraneo realizzata per questa occasione con raffinati inserti arancio. Assolutamente irresistibile. – #deaitalianlinens #DeaLuxuryItalianLinens #tableLinens #madeinitaly #italiandesign #interiordesign #linens #luxurylinens #luxurylifestyle #interiordecor #luxurybrands #homedecor #homedecorating #tabledecor #halloween #halloweendecor #halloween2020 #halloweenparty #halloweendecorations #halloweenspirit #halloweenlife

Bella Notte’s new fall introductions include a vintage multi-tone floral embroidery pattern, a colorful throw pillow adorned by blooming flowers, and two sophisticated new colors. Thus far, there have been no discos announced; the new additions put Bella’s current lineup at 20 collections and 16 dye colors.

Lynette features a vintage chinoiserie inspired floral embroidery atop Bella’s softly textured silk velvet fabric. The embroidery pattern is comprised of both cotton thread, which absorbs dye and takes on a lighter shade of the base fabric color, and pale gold accents, which remain pale gold regardless of the dye applied. Available as a personal comforter, throw pillow, and Euro sham, Lynette backs to a midweight linen.

A sister collection to Rosalina, Fleur features vibrant blooms digitally printed in gradiated watercolor hues atop glowing silk charmeuse throw pillows. Like Rosalina, Fleur is available in “warm” and “cool” color schemes, and has been designed for mixing and matching across Bella’s full color palette. However, Fleur’s beauty is a bit more striking relative to Rosalina’s more subtle beauty.

Lastly, Jade and Mahogany round out Bella’s color palette. Jade, a rich verdant green with subtle blue undertones, can be considered a darker, more sophisticated alternative to Eucalyptus. Mahogany, a deep mahogany, serves as a darker, and deeper alternative to Rosegold.

UPDATE: Bella Notte has let us know that it will be retiring its Marseille and Olivia collections. Short notice and short supply: Marseille and Olivia are available while supplies last – which will not be for long. If you have purchased from either collection and would like to purchase more, contact us asap, and we will see what we can do for you.
