New bedding from a design guru
Sometimes all it takes is a houseful of (opinionated) guests to help you realize that your home décor needs revamping. This year, if you're updating the guest room, consider Jonathan Adler's new bedding collection, which mixes bold colors with kicky graphic prints.
These sheets, shams, pillowcases, and duvets – which nod towards Adler's iconic playful designs but with a serene and sophisticated sensibility – come in an array of smart and gender-neutral patterns, like the geometric chocolate Nixon or mod-yet-whimsical green Hollywood. The sheets are all classic white with delicate embroidery, which softens the punchier comforters and shams.
The duvets run up to $225 and the pillowcases are $45, and everything is 100% cotton percale with a 400 thread-count (i.e.: will last ages).
You don't need to buy a complete set to give the full effect: Add a peppy accent with an orange mustique sham or replace your tired sheets for an instant bedding upgrade.
