    110 N. 6th St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 718-384-3211

    In this tiny Brooklyn boutique, done up like a French boudoir, mirrored display cases overflow with candles, lotions, jewelry, and lingerie. But the main draw is a small collection of linens that reads like a design editor’s wish list: Area’s spare, linear cotton duvets; monogrammed shams by Sin in Linen; bright, textured quilts by Denyse Schmidt; and sheets in dark, Asian-inspired prints by Twinkle Living. The shop is ultrafeminine—owner Hannah Curtin is fashion stylist, and partner Amanda Grogan a merchandiser for Anthropologie—but those who cohabit with more-manly types shouldn’t be deterred. A soft putty-colored quilt by Lunares ($385) is a neutral option, and the cream-and-gray Sketch print duvet ($275) from Dwell’s limited-edition line is more graphic than girlie.
