You, Too, Can Sleep in Troye Sivan’s Sheets

When shopping for new clothes, we tend to gravitate toward the simple pieces that work year-round for a reason: They’re as comfortable during the peak of summer as they are in the dead of winter. And that same logic also applies to home decor—especially bed sheets. Like a good pair of jeans that are always comfortable no matter the season, there’s something to be said about linen sheets that, courtesy of the long fibers, can regulate temperatures, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Not to mention: There’s a luxuriousness to linen that recalls the pastoral simplicity of Marie Antoinette’s rustic Hameau de la Reine. That said, linen does not have to be a splurge-worthy extravagance but rather a must-have economical indulgence. Case in point: Sydney, Australia–based Bed Threads’ eco-minded flax linen sheets, which are soft, affordable, and in several bedrooms of singer-songwriter and actor Troye Sivan’s Melbourne home.

It’s all about earth tones and peachy pinks in Sivan’s sister’s home.

The linen used by Bed Threads—the company was founded by Australian husband-and-wife Alan Biller and Genevieve Rosen—is crafted from 100% French flax, a humble plant that can thrive on little water and no pesticides, making it far more environmentally friendly than cotton or silk, which are considered thirsty plants. Though flax may grow easily (and mainly in Western Europe), manufacturing linen is a time-consuming process that also requires a great deal of physical effort, two factors that traditionally contribute to its high price point.

After all, until recently, linen was a fabric mostly reserved for society’s elite because they were the only ones who could pay for it. Bed Threads’ linen, however, is so affordable because Biller and Rosen sell their buttery-soft wares direct-to-consumer, eliminating all of the unnecessary markups that come with middlemen and big-name retailers. And, as Sivan can likely attest, the sheets only get softer with each wash, so it’s worth investing (a term we’re using loosely) in a few sets.

When it comes to choosing a set, you have two options: already prepared monochrome bundles (complete with two pillowcases, a flat, and a fitted sheet) or building your own mix-and-match set à la carte. Biller and Rosen opted for static pricing (and free shipping), which means that you may not save money opting for a bundle as you may from other bedding brands, but you won’t lose money if you curate your own set as Sivan did so masterfully.

For instance, in his sun-soaked guest room, the performer opted for a combination that’s equal parts feminine and natural with khaki, terra-cotta, and white sheets, and in his sister’s bedroom he chose a more dramatic palette of ink and rosewater. So whether you take a safe approach and pick a monochrome set or go a bit bolder and choose a multitude of shades, there’s no going wrong. After all, the founders chose the 20 demure, earthy colors because they all work together effortlessly and offer that coveted lived-in feel.

Though design trends come and go, we have a feeling that the well-worn, perfectly imperfect bedroom is here to stay, and few textures radiate that vibe quite like linen does.
