When the temps rise, it’s tempting to kick off the covers in favor of just a thin sheet. But don’t let your lack of A/C keep you from having a hotel-grade bed-scape. Choose breathable 100% cotton, and let us take it from there.

Dreamy Bed How-To

  1. Start with the basics. A mattress cover will extend the life of your mattress and keep your fitted sheet from sliding off.
  2. Stay cool with crisp, breathable percale. Lay down your flat sheet, followed by a light, cotton blanket. Tuck them both in tightly and turn down at the top.
  3. Fold a duvet in thirds. Keep your comforter gathered at the foot of the bed for cooler nights – plus, it adds a bit of texture to the overall look.
  4. Finish with pillows. Two sleepers, two shams, and a few front-facing throw pillows should do it. (But let us just say there’s no such thing as too many.)
