Nesting: I’m Doing This Decorating Thing Backwards

Home Decorating On A Budget

Decorate a cute place even if you're a broke-ass mofo. Read More »

Decorating my soon-to-be new bedroom in my new “single again!” apartment has been some of the most fun I’ve had in months. (Boy, have I needed it.) These days instead of whittling away the working hours clicking around Bluefly, I’m all over Crate and Barrel, Pier 1, and the W Hotel store websites.

Interior design is a new interest of mine, but it’s mostly confined to Apartment Therapy lust. When it comes to actually decorating, I’m about as bamboozled as I am by parallel parking and trigonometry. Keep reading »

Lying Sheets

So sneaky: Snurk bedding aims to trick with screen prints of stray bras, panties, or shirts. We imagine these sheets would be very frustrating for a neat freak. [Gessato] Keep reading »

First Look: House Of Dereon Bedroom Collections

Beyonce and mom Tina Knowles are bringing their luxe style to a department store near you. Their home decor lines, House of Dereon and Dereon, feature bedding influenced by Europe, bohemian chic, and dressmaking. Both lines will offer sheet sets, coverlets, comforters, pillow shams, and decorative pillows, but the embroidery-oriented House of Dereon caters to the more adult and sophisticated consumer, whereas the more print-oriented Dereon collection is for the 15 to 30 year olds. Think of it this way: House of Dereon is for the master bedroom and Dereon is for student or recent grad’s bedroom.

Make Over Your Bed With Nate Berkus’ Nautical Sheets

Putting new sheets on your bed is like getting a whole new wardrobe — and it can cost that much, too, especially if you want a soft, high thread count set. Luckily, Nate Berkus’ line of bedding for HSN looks high-design, feels high-quality, and costs, well, a lot less than you’d expect. Plus, the rope-like lattice pattern will go well with the nautical-inspired clothes you’ve been adding to your closet.

Crave: Miranda July Pillowcases

Pillow talk is one of those magical occurrences that only happens so often; it’s fleeting, just like dreams. If anyone knows anything about the subject, it’s Miranda July, the director and performance artist whose beautiful indie film, “Me And You And Everyone We Know” seemed, if just for a moment, to make everyone consider the artistic awkwardness of love.

If you’re a fan, check out July’s recent work, which you can bring into your own home. A set of two pillowcases, one has a poignant image with the words, “Here you will dream of endless kissing.” The other, which reads, “Here you will dream of people you admire exposing your fraudulence,” sounds more like a nightmare, but knowing July, there’s probably meant to be ambiguity in words just as there is in dreams. Or vice versa. [$65, ThirdDrawerDown.com] Keep reading »

Crave: Louise Bourgeois Je T’aime Pillowcase

Sometimes, pillow talk needs no words. At least not the ones you speak out loud. Perhaps that’s the view of artist Louise Bourgeois, who recently presented an installation at London’s Tate Modern, which featured a wood-paneled bedroom. The bed sported a red duvet and a pillowcase with the French words “Je t’aime.” The Tate then created saleable pillowcases based on the work, using beautiful cream cotton to embroider the red phrase where you lay your head. Another variety has “Je t’aime” screen-printed in repetition. In short: we aime it. [$40.37, Tate Modern]

My Beef With Jersey (Sheets)

Not long ago, we told you about how American Apparel introduced a new line of jersey bedding. My first thought was innnn-teresting. Next brainwave: Why the hell do I want a set of jersey sheets? Sure, jersey sheets (t-shirt sheets for those not trolling the aisles of Bed, Bath & Beyond on their Sunday mornings) are insanely affordable and can feel (when they’re new) like the inside of a just-purchased sweatshirt before the first wash—but I just can’t get into them. For two reasons… Keep reading »

American Apparel Diversifies Its Offerings With Bedding

American Apparel has been a mecca of hipster clothes since it debuted more than 10 years ago. But how much longer can people continue to wear deep V-neck shirts, gold lamé leggings, and hot pants? The company seems to know that the demand for these products could wane, so they’ve been adding new items to their stable lately. First it was butt-less tights, then scrunchies, and now the company is selling sheet sets. If AA is getting into the home decor business, we have a few ideas for what else they could make with their fabrics of choice. Keep reading »

Customized Pillowcases For Me And You

At Calvin Klein Collection’s flagship store on Madison Avenue, the windows currently display pillowcases silk-screened with the names of famous duos such as Barack and Michelle, John and Yoko, Siegfried and Roy, and Thelma and Louise. Created by artist Jonathan Horowitz as part of his “Pillow Talk Cases,” the cases are actually for sale, with proceeds going to the Art Production Fund. While we’re all about donating to good causes, we think we might steal Horowitz’s idea for our own purposes and get pillowcases customized (or write on a set with a Sharpie) to correspond to our lives. Amelia’s will read, “Amelia” and “Lucca,” while mine will say, “Catherine” and “Catherine’s imaginary boyfriend.” [CasaSugar] Keep reading »
