Linen, A light and creamy space can be quite beautiful and welcoming, and a linen-dressed bedroom can fit right into that category. Adorn the walls in this light shade and personalize it. Being that we spend about one-third of our lives asleep, it makes sense to invest in bedding that's not only comfortable, but stands the test of time. But with so many options out there — thread count, fabric make-up, patterns, solids — the decision process can be overwhelming. Thread count isn't an indication of quality anymore. Unless it's an amazing and very expensive fabric, a high thread count is just a numbers game: many companies cheat the numbers with double twist yarns in a cheaper fabric. "Personally, I prefer a 400 single pick percale sheet because of the crisp, cool feel. But if you like a soft, warm, bed, a great stretchy jersey sheet might be your thing, and that's not about thread count at all.
That's why you should incorporate some soft accents throughout the space to help tone down the overall design and add some light to the room. You can't go wrong with crisp white accents against bold tangerine walls -- hang sheer white curtains on the windows and use white floating shelves to display your favorite collectibles, or pair your sofa with an eye-catching patterned chair with plenty of white details. If white looks too harsh, ivory or cream make ideal alternatives. Just because your walls are tangerine doesn't mean other orange shades can't work as accents throughout your living room. A monochromatic design can have a sleek, modern look, so if you prefer contemporary decor, it's an ideal look for your living room. Soft shades such as peach can help tone down the design in place of neutrals like white or ivory, while muted shades like burnt orange or terra cotta can take the place of darker neutrals like gray or chocolate.
The way sheets are woven have a direct impact on how they feel. Lemieux's fave, percale, is lightweight and tightly woven, which results in crisp, cool, bedding, while microfiber's super-tight, dense weave makes it wrinkle-resistant, extra-soft, and resistant to water. Some other weaves to consider: ultra-soft and lustrous sateen, and flannel, with a nappy texture perfect for cooler climates. Like any other element in the bedroom, sheets play a part in the overall design. "I always advise a small, medium, and large scale mix of patterns in the same color family," Lemieux says. "It's an easy way to start experimenting with prints." How many sheet sets you need is totally up to you and how often you like to change things up. But remember, sheets that may seem summery can work all year. Just add a coverlet, blanket, and throw to make your bed cozier for the fall and winter months.
