Ombré’s Cooler Cousin Makes an Appearance in Brooklinen’s Latest Bedding Launch
Say hello to monoprints.

As eye-catching as a good gallery wall can be, prints don’t need to be limited to the vertical plane. This fall, in its collaboration with New York City–based artist Karen J. Revis, Brooklinen asks you to look to your bed as a creative display.
Inspired by the texture and bold energy in Revis’s original print works, the new Stripes bedding collection is available in two colorways: Creamsicle (a peachy orange scheme) and Ultraviolet (a combo of pale blues and richer purples). The motif also happens to be familiar territory for Revis, who often toes the line between graphic and painterly.
The one-of-a-kind gradients are a riff on a technique printmakers call a monoprint. Different from traditional screen printing, which transfers color through a reusable template or stencil, a monoprint can only be used once, meaning the resulting image can never be replicated.
“We wanted to lean into a transitional color palette—something that felt cozy for winter but could also segue easily to spring,” says Katie Elks, director of design and product development at Brooklinen. If you need us, we’ll be weathering the colder months from under these cheerful duvets.
When the art is on your bed, what do you layer it with? We’ve got a couple ideas…
Color-coordinate with a simple dotted throw pillow, like this one from Morrow Soft Goods, and try a graphic blanket to balance out the stripes.
Layer the duvet with a small-scale floral sheet set—pattern pairing 101! Then opt for a quilt in a similar color story to add depth.
