The Sheet Society has convinced me to dedicate my bedroom entirely to sleeping

WORDS BY TIFFANY FORBES 

“At the end of the day, there’s nothing better than going home and getting in your bed.”

I can’t be the first to admit that 2020 was an absolute shambles. And as you can imagine, my bedroom was the first to bear the brunt of it. What was once my safe haven rapidly deteriorated and regrettably turned into my office, dining table, kitchen and sleeping quarters all at the same time.

Yes, that meant my sheets were splattered with taco stains and I spent night after night sharing a bed with not just a dog and two cats, but a bunch of pens and laptop cords, too. Looking back, it’s no wonder I was on the brink of insanity.

It’s only now that I’ve returned to the office and made an active effort to compartmentalise my work-life from my home-life, that I’ve learnt just how important it is to reclaim my bedroom as just that: a bedroom. And what better way to christen my newly-reclaimed space than to indulge in some fresh sheets? 

That’s where The Sheet Society’s latest Autumn collection comes in. Taking on a whole new colour palette inspired by the literal definition of zen, the brand’s signature Eden Cotton and Eve Linen sheets have answered my prayers and are now available in an earthy sage green and rusty camel hue. 

The Sheet Society’s Design and Production Manager, Caitlin Hogg, says the colour theme for this drop takes on a nature-inspired and ‘inner sanctuary’ type of look and feel, which is everything I’m looking for when it comes to reinventing my bedroom as a space for relaxation and some much-needed shut-eye. 

“Coming into the cooler months – that was our big lockdown last year – our sole focus was to ensure people feel positive and at ease about being at home. Alleviating any negative thoughts surrounding going back into hibernation was the sole focus and direction behind the collection,” she explains. 

For my friends who prefer to opt for a pattern, fear not, these new-season threads don’t come without a subtle flair. Enter: a classic stripe finish. 

“As part of the collection, we have a white and sage stripe that naturally, pairs back with Sage in our Eden and Eve ranges. We also have a beautiful new blush stripe in the capsule, an existing colour that our customers know and love,” Caitlin says. 

This means mixing and matching doesn’t have to stop at just your bikini tops and bottoms. You can now buy a blush stripe doona cover and pair it with a solid blush fitted sheet. Snazzy, huh? So we’ve got the aesthetics down-pat, but how do I know which type of sheet is right for me? 

“They’re both made from 100 per cent natural fibres, something that is extremely important to The Sheet Society. Largely, their difference is the fibre content, one being cotton and the other being linen. Our Eden Cotton is a 400 thread count, sateen weave, which lends itself to a beautiful lustre sheen finish. It’s by far our best selling range. If you want to start out with something from the brand that’s a little bit smoother and silkier, then Eden’s the one to go for,” Caitlin explains.

“Alternatively, if you are looking to spend a little more cash for ultimate luxury and longevity, then I’d suggest Eve Linen. It continues to improve with every wash and wear. The weave of the fabric is slightly looser and the fibres are rawer, so the overall look of linen gives a more natural and earthy appeal.”

In the spirit of (quite literally) pillow talk, I ask Caitlin what a bedroom means to her. “At the end of the day, there’s nothing better than going home and getting in your bed,” she says, and I don’t think there’s a better way to put it. A bedroom should be your safe space, your escape, and your sanctuary, so don’t forget to treat it like one. 

And with that, if you see me browsing sheet combos for hours on end, kindly, mind your business.
