If you already spend on pretty nighties, tricking out your bed should follow suit. How can you properly drift off into sandman world with everything uncoordinated?

“It is very important to feel pampered, especially since we spend a third of our lives in bed,” remarks Daphne Oseña-Paez about her line of stylish bed linens (DOP Line) for Linens Direct.

And who hasn't hit the snooze button to indulge in a little more sleepy time? Holing up with a gaggle of pillows beneath soft sheets is a luxury most fashionistas, with their busy fashion-filled calendars, lack. Daphne has got the soft sheet part covered at least. Buying her linens also means sleeping in sheets made of 100% with a thread count that runs from 300 to 600.

The fun part starts in actually choosing from the two collections she's released this year. The neutrals and crisp embroidery of the Classic line will go well with the minimalists who favor tailored or classic lines. The Vibrant Chic (VC) collection is for the eclectic sort who favors a color palette that does have color and whose eyes light up at the sight of a fab print. These girls will have extra fun mixing and matching sheets since the VC line comes in separates.

In a blog Q&A with Rafe Totengco, Preview's fashion editor Liz Uy reveals that her big splurge is having a fashionable pad (click here to see blog entry). What better way to put the reason to the rhyme of the DOP line? If you greet the outside world in top-to-toe style, coming home to a room that echoes this is heaven in a box.

For the Classic line, a four-piece duvet set for a queen-sized bed can run around P4900-P6400. The Vibrant Chic collection costs about P1800 for queen-sized sheets and pillow cases, plus P1500 for a duvet.

Daphne Oseña-Paez Line for Linens Direct is available at Our Home in SM Megamall, SM Makati, V-Mall, SM City Fairview, SM Southmall, SM City San Lazaro, The Block at SM City North EDSA, and SM Mall of Asia.
