Bright, bright, white in 100% cotton. (Buy the sheets one size up from the package i.e. queen bed = king size sheet set). White looks clean and inviting.
Make them a 1000 tpi from Europe if you want to really impress.


Summer and then winter weight down comforter (STP has some great German made comforters from time to time) housed in a pure silk cover.

Pillows should be 100% down (no feathers) and housed in a high thread count zippered pillow cover. (Keep a couple of high quality fiber filled pillows for the allergy prone)

Classic and a sure winner.

The rule is white for blondes and redheads, and red/otherwise for brunettes. The raven-haired will go with anything.

Yeah - but how does he know ahead of time who he's bringing home?

That's why you excuse yourself and set up your sheet set quickly while you go to fetch drinks...

As long as your bed is neatly made, with coordinated duvet, dust ruffle, pillows... and the room is relatively neat... and the sheets are CLEAN, it doesn't much matter. Personally, I can barely sleep on less that 300TC anymore. And they're not much more expensive than the cheap arse percale blends from Target, if you put some energy into shopping.

Try your local Tuesday Morning, if you have one or
SmartBargains.com or
Overstock.com

The color depends on your decor, of course, but if your room is otherwise "cool" colors, then you could do something like:
or or or
You could always do bright white, but it reminds me too much of Westin's Heavenly Bed. Especially if all the bedding is white.

If on the other hand, your decor leans toward the warm, try:
or or or

That should give you some ideas of what's out there. I don't think any of these cost more than $79 per set. The cheapest is $30-40ish.

Bottom line is, if you have a "grown-up" room, with real furniture, wall decor, window coverings, and matching bedding, you'll do just fine. I mean, your room will look just fine.

"Dinge" on the lighter side, and on the darker side, "Filth."

This is one reason I love Japanese women; they're versatile.

I know this thread is really old, but does anyone know where to find some of these cool multi stripped duvets and sheets? Even the square embossed styles? I checked overstock and the usual places and the closest thing they carry is the normal stripe. No small threadcount either! Thanks!
