There are a few items that have haunted my wish lists and Pinterest boards for years. Yes, YEARS without my actually taking the plunge. Some are out of my budget, some I just haven't gotten around to, but some are because I'm intimidated. Sin Linen's Tattoo Sheets in Geisha Garden are one of those things. I'm not afraid to take a risk, but didn't quite have a vision of how I would make these bold sheets fit into a bedroom I'd still want to hang out in. I wondered whether I could make it work without it seeming forced or too crazy. I finally challenged myself to put together a mood board featuring these bed linens that looks pulled together and restful, while still bold and interesting.
My strategies included pulling out the more sophisticated colors from the pattern with coordinating furniture and accessories; in this case, a peacock blue and a mustard yellow. Bringing some bright metallics and warm texture made the bedroom still feel cozy and added depth. To take it to the next level, utilizing a third unexpected color (the blue that shows up in the rug and throw) helped create a casual not-too-matchy feeling.

My concern was that the sheets are so specific, highlighting the colorful Asian vibe without it feeling like a "themed room" seemed challenging. The lotus pendant and tall black vase play off of the vibe, but still feel natural. Other elements are modern and more clean-lined; I like that it feels gender-neutral, too.
