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.
If you like to keep up with the trends
Yellow is very of the moment. Slip into these sheets and you’ll practically be able to feel the onset of summer thanks to their sun-kissed hue.
If you’re feline cheeky
Take a walk on the wild side with this pretty-in-pink set.
If you want to keep it subdued
An undeniable upgrade of my college-era sheets, this linen line exudes cool and calm.
If you can handle the saturation
Flaneur’s sets come in custom colorways—and that’s the type of creative freedom we all need in our lives. Its red-on-coral bundle is the epitome of adventurous.
If you like the moody drama
I’m a big fan of Brooklinen’s offerings—they’re light in texture and a blessing when those sweltering summer nights have arrived. This graphite option is moody to a chic degree.
If you’re all about the earthy vibe
The terra-cotta-inspired hue of this French linen design promises to have a statement-worthy effect on your bedroom.
If you fancy a color block
Hawkins New York’s stoned-washed sheets were made for mixing and matching. I’ve got my eye on the mustard and forest green pairing.
If you’d rather side with the classics
Take it back to the basics with these blush-toned linens, which can be seamlessly integrated into just about any decorative aesthetic.
