Metro Man & Metro Home

By Kim Taylor

The comforts of home include soft, fresh sheets and homemade delicacies in the oven wafting the scent of aromatic herbs. Here are some suggestions for sheets and aprons that will make you want to spend far more time in the kitchen and bedroom.

Sin in Linen takes sheet graphics to a completely new level with images of ’50s pinups and other scintillating textiles on their soft, comfortable, 100% cotton sheets. Skull and crossbones, vines, tattoos, dragons, flames, lips, pink zebra and leopard prints and guitars with English flags render Sin In Linen the most fun you can have with sheets. You’ll enjoy browsing at http://www.SinInLinen.com, and the prices are remarkably reasonable, too.

Leggett & Platt has been a manufacturer of quality bed products for 128 years, so they’re clearly doing everything right. Their Home Collection features gorgeous sheet sets with a 400-thread count, 100% Egyptian single-ply cotton with an indulgent soft sateen weave, and Easy Fit corner pockets, so you don’t have to wrestle with your sheets to keep them tucked. Problem solved! Visit http://www.Lpcpg.com to see their wide array of bed products, including beds and antibacterial mattress protectors.

Vintage aprons are so sweet, and Shabby Apple fuses their warm sentimentality with a modern, colorful twist. At http://www.ShabbyApple.com, you’ll find a selection of memorable aprons as well as unique dresses, shoes, bags, belts, maternity dresses and jewelry. Even if you’re not an apron person, the Shabby Apple selection will likely make you a convert.

Home is where the heart is, so make it a comfortable respite!
