It’s easy to fall into an alabaster rut when it comes to bed linens, but a fun twist on solid white is totally possible. Subtly patterned sheets with accent colors in various hues are a good way to add a whimsical element to an otherwise uninterrupted, all white linen look. We explore some inspired printed sets at a range of price points—from luxe to wallet-friendly.
Frette Bicolore Sheet Set, $1,150-$1,200
Although a spendier option, this Egyptian cotton set features a contrasting border in order to provide a bold accent for any minimalist bedroom look. The lustrous cotton sateen also adds an element of texture to these sheets.
Bedding startup Brooklinen’s mission is akin to that of grocery giant Trader Joe’s: eliminating the middleman. The linen purveyor offers super soft, comfortable quality at reasonable prices. These charcoal smoke, polka dotted white sheets look clean and crisp under a pure white duvet.
If you’re looking for just a hint of fancy adornment, this linen set is trimmed with a touch of navy blue. The contrast provides a hotel bedding-esque upgrade from basic white, and the overlocking stitch jazzes up the flat sheet and pillow cases.
Pottery Barn Bee Print Organic Sheets, $199-$129
These blue and white printed sheets will get all the buzz. The block style pattern mixes well with your comforter or duvet, all while adding an eccentric look to your bedroom decor.
Sakuna Ivory Flat Sheet, $115
Sculpted scallops punctuate these otherwise crisp white sheets that are inspired by the architecture of India. Pair them with either a solid duvet, or a more ornate iteration.
Coyuchi Hedgehog Printed Sheet Set, $247.99
A cute option for kids, this Coyuchi set touts a critter studded print that’s super adorable. It looks like an abstract design from far away, which also makes it perfect for adults who have eccentric taste (or perhaps an affinity for Sega-era Sonic the Hedgehog).
Vera Wang Mirrored Sheets, $99-$149.99
The metallic trend makes a cameo when it comes to bedding—dress up your bed with just a hint of silver embroidery. The embellished border of rolled pleats and accent stitching amid cotton sateen would look fantastic in a guest bedroom (or even your own).
