Style Splurge: Linen Sheets

This style splurge is one that seems truly indulgent to me.   Some would argue, however, that linen sheets are also practical. They are supposed to wear well over time and become softer with age.

I am pretty particular about the kind of sheets I use, and my husband is definitely vocal about sheets that rub him the wrong way (pun intended).  One time he accused me of scooting over onto his side of the bed after he left for work and moving around a bunch so his side would pill.   This is obviously a pretty outrageous claim, but maybe we would both have a happy nights’ sleep with some cool, crisp linen sheets on our bed.

aaaaand if you think that all linen sheets only come in boring shades of natural flax,  you’re wrong!  Linoto carries some pretty amazing colors.  These aqua ones caught my eye, although  don’t think they’d necessarily work in my bedroom.

I want to know what you think?  Have you heard good things about linen sheets?  Are they something you’d splurge on?

Have a FABULOUS day out there!

    I am all about fabulous sheets so I would definitely try linen. I have bamboo sheets now and I LOVE them. Super soft and luxurious.

    Those look awesome! We currently have these super soft sheets from Bed Bath & Beyond (I forget the brand) but they are pilling – we’ve had them for a few years so I guess it’s time to look for something new. I will definitely be checking out linen sheets – they sound like they would be nice and cool for summer too.

    Linen sheets are on my list of investments for our bedroom in the future! I slept on linen sheets at a little boutique hotel in Rome a few years ago and it was amazing. I love the look…I’ve been eyeing sheets from Matteo Home.

    Like Viv, this is new to me! I’m not very adventurous in the sheet department. We have these cheap soft sheets from Target that are great! Guess I should try out something more luxurious before I claim that.

    Your husband’s accusation is too funny!! We are also very particular about our sheets but we’ve got amazing LLBean flannel ones that work perfectly for us in the winter and very old, very soft cotton sheets for the summer.
