Almost every home design and lifestyle guru says your bedroom should be a tranquil place, with crisp white sheets and soft colors. I tried to be a grown-up, to listen to their advice, and not buy bedding with a crazy design from the "Get Ready for College" section at Target. So I instead I went with a blogger favorite, West Elm's pure white, cloud-like organic pintuck duvet cover, a few years ago. It was fine, but I got bored of it and I managed to rip the pintucks, and now I am back on the market for duvet covers and sheets. And I can't look away from this Marimekko option. Those Finns know what's up.
It is incredibly loud, but I love the mismatch of the floral sheets with the striped duvet. It's all in the pink and orange color family, which is the most fun color combination around. And those big cartoon flowers would make you happy every day just by looking at them. And as bedding goes, this is pretty affordable. Don't mind me, just practicing my speech to convince my boyfriend that pink sheets with flowers on them are a viable option for our apartment.
