With summer heat officially in full swing, you might be looking for ways to help yourself keep cool day and night. You’ve probably been blasting the AC and filling your home with fans, but if you’re still looking for nighttime relief, now is a good time to invest in a set of linen sheets. Linen is naturally breathable, so it can regulate your temperature and keep you from sweating as you sleep. The only trouble is that good linen sheets typically come with a high price tag. That’s why we were ecstatic to find these half-off linen sheets at West Elm. When we tested them, we described this West Elm bedding as “dip-your-toe-in linen,” softer than percale cotton but still cleaner and crisper than other options available. And though these sheets are available in lots of colors and sizes, this deep discount is on the queen-size so-called space gray option — but the light gray base and lines of dark gray scattered throughout are neutral enough to match any duvet cover or blanket, even if it’s just classic white. (If you want to pay a little more, these sheets are also on sale in slate mélange or frost gray for $163 a set, which is still a good discount even if it’s not half off.)
