I've been silently obsessing over the sheets that I saw in Rita Konig's apartment featured in Domino Magazine a few years ago, and my need for them has suddenly become very urgent. I just recently saw them in the spread of Jan Showers's latest design for a 1950's home in Texas. I need them. I must have them. The sheets in question are D. Porthault and they are, of course, completely out of my price range, so incredibly beautiful and classic. My favorite pattern is the hearts pattern. They are sweet, yet very sophisticated, soft and feminine.
The scene that started the obsession, Rita Konig's bedroom from Domino. Little did I know I was on a slippery slope here. I love to buy sheets to begin with but this is on another level.
Here is Rita Konig's bed when it is made. These pillows in a flower pattern are equally as exquisite.
Here is "my" pattern in a handkerchief. Swoon. via lasplash
All the hottest designers use these sheets for their clients and themselves, such as James Andrews, above. Also read his hilarious blog, What is James Wearing-he's always fabulously dressed.
In my obsessive search this evening, I found that I'm in good company with this. Jennifer at Peak of Chic is obsessed as well. HERE is her post about Porthault. Are you guys on my Porthault train? Do you have a secret sheets obsession like mine?
