In preparing our humble abode for a month-long sublet in June, I’ll admit that way more fun than drawing up a sublease has been the chance to play out all of my innkeeping fantasies. Crisp white linens here. A special soap there. A fridge stocked with maple syrup coming right up. It’s only a matter of time before looking up rambly old houses to turn into a bed and breakfast becomes a full-blown obsession.
Until then, I don’t need to tell you that I appreciate a good set of white sheets. While we’re away, our subletters will have the chance to enjoy beautiful bedding (and towels!) from Snowe. And if you’re thinking that it’d be nice to have the feel like you’re staying in a beautiful inn from the comfort of your very own bed, bedding from Snowe might be the right option for you, too.
As you might remember, Snowe is a brand committed to selling luxury home essentials to customers directly. By cutting out the middleman, the company is able to make high-end luxury staples like Limoges porcelain and titanium-reinforced Italian glassware accessible to customers for a fraction of what they would otherwise cost.
The Snowe bedding choices are no different. Snowe uses combed 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton to produce the fine and strong threads they weave into their 500-thread count sheets. More important than thread count, their sheets, pillowcases, shams, and duvet covers are woven into a tight, strong, long-lasting percale. The percale weave (a simple one over, one under process) produces a fabric that is crisp, breathable, and designed to be suitable for any weather.
Snowe’s simple sheets sets are designed to work in either traditional or contemporary spaces. Each sheet is hand-finished with a bit of satin thread and sheet sets come in three colors: Essential White, Classic Ivory, and Perfect Gray. Even better: they now come as singles. Maybe you’re not a flat sheet kind of person. Maybe you’re a brave soul who forgoes the fitted sheet and gets fancy by tucking a flat sheet around your mattress? Whatever your particularity, now you can buy your sheets in whatever combination makes sense for you.
Because the 100% cotton sheets haven’t been treated with anti-wrinkle chemicals or inter-woven with wrinkle-resistant fibers like silk or poly, Snowe recommends dressing your bed with sheets that are still slightly damp to avoid wrinkles. (To note: Snowe recommends machine washing on warm and tumble drying on low to extend your bedding’s lifespan. The sheets in these photos have been washed and dried but not ironed!)
Each set of sheets comes with a specially made percale storage envelope for safe keeping and easy stacking. (For sheets that are destined for the linen closet, Snowe recommends folding sheets while they’re still warm from the dryer to cut back on wrinkles.)

you bring me such simple joy each morning when I turn on the ole work computer after slugging into work leaving my little one at home. thank you for being true.
Welp, you just made my day! xo!
Can I ask where your blanket/bedspread is from?
It’s from Brahms Mount! Their Ticking Stripe blanket! We love it!
I have been eyeing your blanket for a while both on your blog and in your book and was wondering where it came from. It is no surprise that it is from Brahms Mount, their products are lovely.
Those look lovely. Financially unattainable for me at the moment but, they do look lovely. And, thanks for all the sheet tips!
Ordered a set the last time you mentioned them.
Oh, exciting! I think you’ll be really impressed!
I’ve been search for a great sheet set so this post was perfect timing! I’m trying to use the discount code you mentioned, but Its not working for some reason. Could this be an error?
Eek! Looking into that now!
Should be good to go now!
How do we find information on subletting from you?
I posted about our sublet opportunity a few weeks ago, but we’ve since rented our place! Thanks for your interest!
Thanks Erin for your response and that is great you found a renter!! I’m not sure if you are considering future subletting or not, but I wanted to ask if that might be a possibility. If so would you consider a 2 or 3 day sublet in August?
I checked out your pictures of your home via the today’s show interview and I noticed that you have given the bedroom to your daughter is this correct? Your bed is now in the main room?
Hi there: No immediate plans for future sublet, but would most likely be on a monthly basis as required by our landlord! Yes: our bed is now in the main room.
Could I ask where the pillows are from? They look so plump and fluffy!
We got them from Pacific Coast Down! Feather/Down for the bolsters and just feather for the ones we sleep on!
I’ve had a hankering for new pillows – and after seeing yours also for a new bed, new frame, new everything! it must feel amazing in all its crisp newness. but back to the pillows…how do you find them? soft? firm? do they flatten out? I am a side sleeper and am tired of the shoulder perma-dent that creates in my pillows. I figure down/feather will help with that but worry if they will be firm enough.
Oh man, so personal! We actually returned the first set we got to sleep on (feather/down) and opted for just down instead and we love them! Definitely worth the nominal shipping fee to get a set that we really liked! I’d say read the product descriptions to see what sounds best for the kind of sleeper you are and then reconcile that you might need to do a return to find the best match!
Your apartment is so beautiful in its simplicity. Could you show us a floor plan, please. It is so hard for me to imagine the space with your bed in the kitchen area. Thanks. Love, love, love your website.
I love the look of white sheets but I find that over time they always end up looking dingy, since I avoid the use of bleach and chemical detergents. How do you keep yours looking crisp and white?
I’ll be honest and say I usually don’t do much of anything. They do get a little less white over time, but then, I find that colored sheets fade and look tired in a similar way. There are definitely options for a little whitening: a borax soak; a soak with lemon juice followed by drying in the sun; an eco-minded detergent like one from The Laundress. I might work on pulling together a few of these resources into a more comprehensive post, but I do think that not worrying too much about maintaining the pure white is as helpful as anything!
LOVE! Must feel like vacation!
this is gorgeous. crisp, white bedding is my obsession although i have had far too many fountain pen centric accidents to trust myself with it anymore. sigh.
