Summer Sheet Options

With Memorial Day in the rear view mirror, it's time to take action. When the thermometer and barometer conspire to keep you awake, you'll want to park those flannel sheets in the linen closet and switch to something a lighter for a good night's sleep.

Nautica's Cali Coast sheet set features a wonderfully airy blue and white paisley design that looks like feathers floating on a soft summer breeze. The fabric is machine washable 300 thread count 100 percent cotton.

Marimekko's Ajo sheet set comes in either green and white stripes or black and white stripes in a north-to-south orientation. Ajo's bold design can be paired with a range of Marimekko's bright duvet covers and comforters (we like the Hennika Green duvet). The wonderfully soft fabric is 250 thread count 100 percent Percale cotton.

Tommy Bahama's Island Botantical sheet set is clad in unique east-to-west tan and ivory block stripes. The fabric is soft 100 percent 230 thread cotton. The subtle pattern can be paired with a range of lightweight comforters.
