Noticed recently: gray striped sheets and saffron-accented linens; an unexpected color combination that works surprisingly well.

Above: Named for famed decorator Dorothy Draper, the yarn-dyed (meaning the yarns are dyed, then woven, to create the pattern) Dwell Studio Draper Stripe linens are 100 percent cotton sateen with a 320 thread count; a Full/Queen Duvet Set includes a duvet cover and a pair of shams and costs $308 at Velocity Art & Design.

Above: New from West Elm, the Stripe Print Sheet Set is $99 for a queen set.

Above: Djerba 100 Percent Linen Duvet Cover; $119 for a full/queen size at CB2. A matching Set of Two Standard Shams is $24.95.
