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.
Mustard, for something funky and trendy, go with a mustard tone. Use it as an accent wall or create a shining spot by dressing the bedroom in it completely and toning it down with natural accents. Mustard has been eaten as a tangy condiment since the earliest recorded times, and was even used as a medicine by ancient physicians. Mustard's typically pungent taste is the result of a chemical reaction that takes place when the seeds are ground and mixed with water. If you love the bold taste of mustard, why not try adding a dollop of this warming hue to your own home? Softer on the eye than vivid yellow but just as warm, mustard works in all sorts of interior spaces, from feature walls in living rooms to splashbacks in kitchens. To create a contemporary feel, combine touches of mustard with grey or white, or, if a retro look is more your style, try teaming mustard with teal, black and the natural tones of teak or rosewood.
Muted warm pinks are often called rose. This understated color is often seen in historical and traditional spaces, and it is a mainstay in the Victorian color palette. This color is pretty much synonymous with coral, but apricot tends to be earthier and more muted. In specifying the paint colors for this space, I took clues directly from my client's artwork. A mid-tone apricot worked perfectly for the walls, while a lighter pink coral highlighted the tray ceiling. This color leans more towards the orange side of coral, but you can still see its slightly reddish undertones. It's a soft, mid-tone color that is reminiscent of the many rusty-orange hues of autumn. This color can be best described as a vivid, fruity orange. It has strong red undertones, and it makes an amazing and unforgettable accent color.
