Summertime is the perfect shift in the year (and weather) to give your bedroom a little refresh, and one of the fastest ways to do that is by injecting a little fun via your bedding. Ditch the solid sheets in place of crisp, modern prints to perk up a tired, overly relaxed bed. Here are 11 of our current favorites...
I have a similar set of these sheets from Target and they feel crisp yet buttery soft under my skin when heading to bed, plus the pockets are deep enough for my thick mattress. This particular print is great for just about anyone and can blend seamlessly into numerous styles.
Pineapples are a symbol of hospitality, so if you want to add some hospitable fun to your bed, these cotton-percale sheets should do the trick.
Available in four colors, including this happy yellow stripe, this 200 thread count cotton sheet set is reminiscent of traditional (and cozy) pajama sets.

West Elm's organic cotton is luxuriously soft, which makes these organic cotton percale sheets also luxuriously soft (despite the low sounding 200 thread count). There's also an option to monogram them for a truly personal touch.
DwellStudio is a favorite for textiles and furniture that sport happy, stylish prints, so its no surprise their sheet sets are just as delightful. A nearly perfect 4.9 review rating solidifies these as a great purchase. From one of the reviewers: "This is my favorite sheet set, of all time. Bought this to coordinate with Cleo Duvet and could not be happier. The sheets feel soft and look nice (don't crease and wrinkle up into a ball during washing). The subtle, intricate detail in the pattern is a true delight for the eye!"
The juxtaposition of hard marble on soft sheets is a nice touch. One review notes that the sheets are tagged as "dry clean only", but at 100 percent cotton, we can't imagine why (the site also mentions that these are machine washable).
If you've never tried supima percale, you're missing out! With a 300 thread count, it's far tighter and softer than you'd imagine with that number, and the simple contrast of the florals adds a delicate note to your bed.

A contemporary, graphic print is subtle in a soft blue. The six piece set gives you more bang for your buck (and 500 thread count to boot!).
Gingham is one of those prints that could feel super country, but also pretty modern, depending on what it's paired with. The crisp gray keeps these on the more contemporary side of things.
Shay Spaniola's prints never disappoint (the artist hand-draws each of them), and these dreamy and kaleidoscope-like sheets are proof of that.
The first new introduction from Brooklinen since the brand launched, these Belgian linen sheets are a total luxury at a fair price. We love the subtle striping (though the rumbly stonewashed solids are also amazing).
