I’ve sworn by all-white sheets since I graduated from college and bid adieu to the gaudy turquoise ones I had been sleeping on for the better part of those four years (what was I thinking?). These days, I’m an avid proponent of neutral-hued bedding—there’s nothing as effortlessly cool and luxe as a bed fitted with crisp white linens, if you ask me.

But I have to admit, the fresh crop of colorful alternatives available right now is hard to resist, especially as I look to transform my tiny studio into a dreamy, island-inspired escape. In the spirit of branching out of my new norm, without revisiting my dorm days, I looked to the power players in bedding to find the saturated sheets I would willingly discount my rule for. Here’s what I discovered.
