Remember when almost every male you knew had a bedroom decorated with baseball pennants and Hot Wheels? Well, those boys have grown out of their Underoos and now use shoe horns and bedside carafes and want the sophisticated bedding to match. Thankfully, grown up "masculine" bedding has evolved beyond that once ubiquitous (and hideous!) male friendly Amalfi bed in the bag.
Here is a roundup of bedding to up the style ante in any man's bedroom (or frankly any bedroom! I'd be happy with any one of these):
1 - If luxurious bedding is your game, Matteo is your name. Matteo linens are woven in Italy and sewn in L.A. from natural fibers like Egyptian cotton, Peruvian alpaca, Baltic flax and Nepalese cashmere. (If you live in LA, their annual sample sale with deals up to 75% off is this weekend!)
2 - One can never go wrong with stripes, but make them gray and add some mustard accents and you have a recipe for greatness. This bed is comprised of the Tailored Stripe Coverlet and Sham plus Stripe Print Sheet Set from West Elm.
Dwell Studio also has their own gray and mustard striped bedding set with a slightly higher price tag.
3 - Area is a New York based firm that launched in 1990 with a casual yet distinctive style. With a wide selection of sophisticated and modern colors, their solid bedding options are a great choice. Area bedding is available from Design Public.
4 - Dwell Studio is consistently known for high quality, graphic, on trend bedding. If patterned duvet covers plus sheets plus shams is a bit much, consider a solid duvet cover paired with graphic sheets. This bedding set is a combination of the Matalasse and Pyramids collections.
