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 »
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.

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.
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 »
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]
