That Dark Bedroom: No More White Sheets

I have never been a fan of white sheets. I don’t understand the obsession over them. Going into my bedroom and being blinded by glaringly starch-white sheets, just doesn’t make me want to jump in. But everybody is different! I also have a tendency to spill things. I like to eat my salad in my bed while watching a movie on my computer, and balsamic vinegar stains don’t look so good on white.

But its not just being messy that makes me not attracted them. I feel safe when I sleep in dark colored blankets and beddings. For some reason white sheets kind of make me vulnerable, as if everyone can see me. Okay maybe I am just a nut-job but to me a nice dim lit bedroom equipped with a big bed, sporting tousled up dark grey/blue sheets just screams coziness to me.

Maybe it isn’t the girliest, and I did feel growing up that I liked boys’ rooms better, but you gotta go with what makes you feel comfortable, above anything else.

  2. Well, your post surely makes me want to give dark sheets a try. But I’m afraid I’ll find myself yearning for ’em brighties very soon! The reason for obsession with white sheets – hotels, restaurants, homes – is actually very simple: they’re the easiest to keep clean because they can be bleached again and again. I am personally not a fan of plain whites / off-whites (I’d feel like I’m living in a hotel room) but a splash of color would make my day! Great post that was, because it was a point I wasn’t even willing to consider. Thanks 🙂

    • Oh thanks so much for the insight! I always wondered why hotels had such starch white sheets. To think of all the stained sheets I slept in that were just bleached a hundred times! Thank you for your compliments!
