Striped sheets

I've never been one of those people who is obsessed with their bed (despite my best efforts!), but we just got these striped sheets for our bed, plus a striped crib sheet for Toby, and now I'm one step closer. They make our beds feel crisp and lovely. What kind of sheets are on your bed right now?

Those sheets look heavenly, reminds me of a spa and hotel suite. My bed is a hot mess but one day I'll get it together and buy a matching bed set

how cute! I love the stripes. Mine are just plain in a fuchsia color. I need some softer sheets, but I want a king size bed soon so I hate to buy sheets for this one just now :) Maybe 2012 will be the year I get a king size! haha

Janell said...

Striped sheets give off such a clean, crisp vibe.. Those sheets look wonderful! I've been trying to craft our bed into something that is fun to look at and fun to sleep in and I think that striped sheets just might do the trick. Love the navy and white!

white. always. love me some clean crisp and cool white sheets...

Rachel said...

Oooo, I love those!!

I'm currently sleeping on the ink stained sheets that came with my bed set (that's what I get for not washing whites with whites, I guess)... but I'm drooling over the Belgian Linen ones at Restoration Hardware-- yum!! Someday... :)


Happy New Year, Joanna! Glad you're back to blogging- your posts always brighten my day!

sweet!!!
i am in love with sheets and anything to do with the bed, it's my version of heaven on earth....

Justine said...

I'm the same way. No matter how many pretty bedroom pins I have on Pinterest, the bedroom will always be last on my list of decor priorities. (What, you don't have that list?) Although I do love our grey flannel sheets, they're just basic ones from Target. Your stripes are pretty though!

Lisa said...

Mmm those look lovely! On mine right now are some soft and super warm beige with roses all over (: They've got a romantic hint to them.

so neat and simple

Those look so pretty! I have heathered jersey sheets on my bed and I'm obsessed.

Husband & I got monogrammed LL Bean sheets for Christmas. We also have a set of their flannel sheets that are amazing!!

My daughter's crib actually has striped sheets. Not sure if she thinks it's romantic, but she seems to like it. I actually like it too.

You'll never believe this, but my mom swore up and down to me that Costco sheets are just as nice as a $500 set she bought from Frette, so I tried them out -- and they are AMAZING. The most comfortable, crisp yet cozy sheets I've ever had. I can't recommend them enough!

I love any sheets that are nice and crisp and clean feeling! I love patterned sheets!

so cute! I have a mix of blue floral sheets from ralph lauren (ages ago) and embroidered white-on-white sheets from lily pulitzer for garnet hill. but i'm looking for some flannel sheets- my bedroom gets freeeezing (i mean 'wearing smart wool socks to bed freezing') in winter!

Giulia said...

White sheets. Last year I donated (or had to toss) some old sets of mixed up sheets. I replaced w/3 sets of white sheets. I kept many sets of colorful pillowcases, though.

Simplified so much. I like the stripes but I like even more looking into an organized linen closet...the only place that is organized in this entire apt. (Shriek of dismay)

Giulia said...

@Sunday Kind of Love...I just saw your comment as I was *leaving* -

I do have a wonderful set of flannel sheets & matching duvet cover a friend gave me. It's from The Company Store (or it's from Garnet Hill but made by The Company Store). Really, really good quality. Makes huge difference. It's actually too hot to have the sheets & the duvet cover on at the same time & I have a similar bedroom to yours. Good luck!

Janna said...

I have bright green sheets on right now, which I love during the summer but in the winter I wish I had something in pale or neutral colors..

Fleece sheets on my bed, as it is freezing here. Love them.

Nicole said...

I love those sheets, like a fresh breeze! I personally had several phases with different sheets. Actually, I love the Laura Ashley style with lots of lovely flowers and white linen with lace and embroidery of my grandmothers. With the relationships then, the strips came (men look kind of silly in flowerly bedding, don't you think so?) Due to my little sweetygirl, I used to sleep in princesses, unicorns and fairies! Love it in some way (I guess, I look kind of silly in those)!

Molliee said...

I usually do a plain white or tan set - these are cute!

Teresa said...

I was just debating a yellow and white striped sheet purchase! I might have to do it! We actually got a big fluffy down comforter a few years ago because my husband wanted "a movie bed" we are always trying to get that big fluffy cozy bed they always seem to have in the movies : )

Anne said...

I'll admit it. I'm a bedding junkie, nothing better than clean crisp linens that match the mood and time of year. Currently we are in a light gray flannel mood with a light green and evergreen flannels mixed in.

Bethany said...

oh so cute! i wish i could find the perfect color stripe for my bed!!

LOVE striped sheets, they have great ones at West Elm right now too!

Colleen said...

I used to have brown striped sheets when I was a kid. I loved them to bits, and was sad when I couldn't use them after I upgraded mattress sizes. I am currently using flannel sheets on my bed.

Sarah Carlson said...

I've got a great basic blue Tommy Hilfiger set of sheets for my lofted dorm bed & cozy flannels at home. The blue sheets are not too manly. They are dainty. Reminds me of blue china sets.

designchic said...

The crib sheet looks adorable. I have a 3 month old grandson and may just have to try these on his crib...love!!

The Wearwithal said...

These are lovely. I have black satin sheets. They keep me cool during the summer time, but they're extra comfy to curl up in during the winter time as well.

Angela said...

Love the nautical feel of those striped sheets! It's summer in Australia right now so I have white sheets with small cuttings of blue checked sewn here and there. I'm with you on the blue and white!

these look so pretty! My bed has nothing special in the sheet line, but I just got a new comforter and memory foam mattress pad, so it feels great!

Charlotte Clarke said...

Those sheets look really crisp and clean; I especially love the matching crib sheet! I have my eye on a Jack Wills striped bedding and this has convinced me just a little bit more to purchase it.

Three Sixty Thinking said...

At the moment we have cosy, soft flannel sheets & a big striped duvet by Toast...too good to get out of on a cold winters day!

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

We have the coziest flannel sheets on right now! Gorgeous and soft and welcoming!

The stripes are CRISP and lovely!

Chloe said...

They're lovely and fresh looking - and slightly nautical too which is always a bonus!

I dream of sleeping amongst big eiderdowns and quilts.

DreTurner said...

I just put this new duvet cover & pillow case set on my bed last night! I fell asleep with both arms and legs wrapped around them - and a big smile on my face.

DreTurner said...

Oh, and I'm not really a bed person either, even though I try to be. But I love my bed because it's the metal bed frame that my parents bought at the Salvation Army when they first moved in together in their (very) early twenties. It's painted dark brown and has a pretty cream coloured flower detail stenciled onto the middle panel that my mom refinished when they first bought it.

Sara Szatmary said...

Our sheets are so cheap, from IKEA and over a year old. A little embarrassing...

Sarah said...

My in-laws gave us some bamboo sheets for Christmas! I can't wait to get home and try them out. They are so soft :)

Tara Galuska said...

nice. you can't go wrong with stripes! we have grey t-shirt sheets on the bed at the moment. my husband is car-azy about them and i like that they are warm in winter.

Carly said...

I just bought a beautiful new quilt cover for my bed and it changes the entire look and feel of the room! Which makes you feel fab and is just what you need sometimes - something nice and fresh and new!

Jillian said...

What's on my bed you ask? Blue and white stripes!!

Samantha said...

Clean sheets are my favorite thing ever. We have 3 sets of sheets now, cream, light blue and chocolate brown. They are all really nice and soft. :)

Ever since I watched The Holiday, I've been dying to get my hands on those yellow striped sheets that Iris has! xx

Jennifer said...

I would love to have some pretty patterned sheets, but my hubby tends to object to anything too feminine. I'll have to look into stripes - he just might go for these!

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Oh I just love this! We are having another boy and this is great inspiration!

asiajane said...

Lovely sheets. Stripes for everything!! We have pretty grey sheets that coordinate with a white & grey Ikea duvet cover. I was so happy because it looked elegant, but turns out the sheets are THE WORST and pilled up right away (despite their "designer cred"). Need to know how to buy good sheets w/o having to break the bank...

melliebay said...

at the moment I have microfleece sheets...I love them. They are warm and feel like I'm sleeping inside my favorite sweatshirt. In the warmer months I switch to crisp white Egyptian cotton.

Daydream Believer said...

I have flannel sheets on the bed right now. Colorado winters are downright chilly!!!

Natalie said...

I've been wanting striped sheets for while now! good choice!

O said...

i haven't heard of unison before thanks for this.. i bought some stripes for my little one a couple months back from http://littleauggie.com/home.php

Ashlae said...

I looove sheets from West Elm. I actually just got their gray+white striped sheets tonight, along with a pair of teal seersucker sheets. In my opinion, you can never have too many sets of sheets. Especially when they're striped!

neha said...

i love stripes! my bedsheets are like a caramel-y custard color on one side and then deep brown on the other. they make me feel extra homey whenever i'm snuggling up in them.

Right now, my favorite powder blue linens. But those stripey sheets are too cute.

honeybeeeee said...

the navy & white combo always seems so crisp! nice choice, lady.

in the winter i usually switch to a flannel flat sheet (i live in Michigan), it's necessary on these chilly nights..

Sydney said...

lovely! mine is plain beige! :D

Lilly said...

Now...I need to get some stripes here too! Just moment ago I was fine with dusty pink in the girls room but now Bright red and white stripes as the idea feels so much more better:)

yellow plain cotton sheets!!! but I have a green and orange striped ones wich I love, cos they're really fun

helen @ forty percent fringe: sixty percent face said...

Tehe, I never used to make my bed until we were given a beautiful, crisp duvet cover. It has a vintage-style floral design on one side and very satisfying pastel stripes on the the other, now I love making my bed, folding it over at the top so I get to see both designs before I crawl into it! Loving these stripes, very fresh :) Hx

@ Mary - the yellow striped sheets that Iris has in The Holiday I think are by Cologne and Cotton (a UK brand) in 'Woven Candy Stripe' - they do a choice of Pink, Duck Egg blue and Yellow. Absolutely gorgeous!
I mainly go for pure white but with a bit of texture - I always feel so fresh when I get into fresh white sheets!

Kate said...

Mmm I LOVE fresh, crisp sheets, and everything about those strips say "fresh" and "crisp." My apartment has been so cold lately, however, that I've actually been sleeping between some very old flannels. It's like my whole bed is made of pajamas, ha.

zan said...

This post reminded me how toasty warm New York apartments can be in winter. I envy your radiators! We're wrapped up in flannel at the moment in Ohio; I chose charcoal gray flannel sheets because I love anything gray and the charcoal suggests even more warmth. It makes all the difference to have the right sheets; I think it makes for better dreams.

c├ęcile said...

those are cute!
we're into more rustic and natural fibers like linen or hemp...what do you think of these, don't you love the neutral, muted palette?

oh, i love stripes! i adore my striped bedding. it's in blue tone and has vintage touch. :)

kikiazure said...

My husband and I sleep on Calvin Klein combed cotton sheets in dark slate, with a super warm duvet even though we live in California. I ❤our bed & your blog!!

Mary Kate said...

Just got new sheets. The thread count isn't all that high, but there is something amazing about them and I love the pattern (also love neutrals for bedding) I did the gray thing for a while and now I'm onto these in light bark: http://us.mydeco.com/p/kn-luxury-home-bamboo-print-sheet-sets-light-bark-twin/US69BB40FAVWS5IFCMWYL253XSGDRPA66JMJDGNN/

Di said...

Right now my sheets are stripped too! It's the Oxford collection by Ralph Lauren in lavender/white. It's like sleeping in my husband's shirts, they are really comfy. And Made in Portugal as a bonus!

James said...

Striped sheets and duvet covers are on the scratcher right now! It's so cold out but if feels like summer on the cape in my bedroom!

Tara D.Clark said...

There is apparently a lot to know about this. I assume you made certain good points in features also.
