Ahhhhh, summer. Makes us want to enjoy the great outdoors. Sit in the sun. Dine al fresco. Do boot camp in the park. Nap in a hammock. But after all that outdoors stuff, we still take to our beds at the end of the day, and what could be better than a good night’s sleep in crisp new linens? Summer is a great time to refresh your bedding. It’s the kind of household chore that gets neglected during other times of the year, when back-to-school, holiday activities or sporting events take precedence. Best of all, summer is a fabulous time for online sales, and you can shop from the comfort of your beach chair. A few clicks, and that’s another thing you can cross off your To Do list. Here are Elysian’s absolute faves when it comes to sheets, pillows, mattress pads and duvets:
John Robshaw Stitched Sheets
Start with 300 thread-count pure combed cotton, add a delicate embroidered stitch across the top. Voila, bedding perfection!
Sunham Amherst Sheet Sets
You’re going to clamor to climb into these lush 400 thread-count cotton sheets each night. Available in 7 colors.
Sky Cotton Sateen Sheet Set
The key to a good life? We’re not completely sure. But we think it has something to do with super soft, 500 thread-count cotton sateen sheets.
Whim by Martha Stewart Novelty Sheet Sets
What’s not to like about a vibrantly-colored, 4-piece sheet set in 100% cotton percale featuring leopards and palm trees? We’re stumped, because we love it!
Bluebellgray Watercolor Plaid Sheet Set
Available in pink and blue, the Watercolor Plaid is as cheerful as a Saturday morning when the kids and the puppy pile into your bed.
It’s easy to underestimate the rectangular pouf that we lay our heads on at night. But our pillows play a critical role in how we sleep and whether we wake up rested in the morning.
The SensorGel Gusseted Pillow
Specifically designed for individuals who sleep on their backs and their sides, the SensorGel gusseted pillow is equipped with memory foam for comfort and support and a gel overlay for temperature regulation.
My Temperature Regulating Pillows
The name isn’t very imaginative, but the patented Primaloft Thermobalance filling on My Temperature Regulating Pillow helps wick heat away from you in the summer and keep you cozy in the winter. Available in standard and king sizes.
$104.99 – $137.99, bloomingdales.com
My Featherdown Pillow
Not everyone likes to plunge into a plush down pillow, but for those of us who do, the Bloomingdale’s Featherdown is hot commodity. Durably constructed with 600 fill power and a 325-thread count cotton shell, the Bloomie’s Featherdown will not shed, flatten or fray.
Flair Asthma & Allergy Friendly Pillow
Severe asthma and allergies can have a serious impact on one’s sleep and lung health. The hypoallergenic My Flair Pillow is filled with European down, and covered with 269-thread count Egyptian cotton, and German-milled damask.
Mattress pads may lack the thread-count sexiness of sheets or the star-billing of a duvet, but they certainly pull their own weight in the bedroom. A pad extends the life of your mattress by protecting it from contaminants, and also adds an additional layer of cushion and comfort to your sleep surface.
Coyuchi Organic Cotton Mattress Pad
10% off to new customers

Bloomingdale’s Ultimate Protection Mattress Pad

Ralph Lauren Lux-Loft Asthma & Allergy Friendly Mattress Pad

Pacific Coast Quilt Top Feather Bed
The Pacific Coast mattress pad is stuffed with fluffy Resilia feathers, which gently cradle your body’s pressure points, contributing to restful sleep.
Bloomingdale’s Dreamweave Mattress Pad
Protect your mattress while adding a layer of pillow-top comfort. The Dreamweave creates a breathable, water-resistant barrier against dust, bed bugs and allergens.
Years from now, when you look back on today, you might not remember which sheets you had on your bed, or what kind of pillow you used, but your duvet cover will be imprinted in your mind’s eye forever. Might as well choose a print that you like.
John Robshaw Bita Duvet
