Staying put this summer? Here are some ideas to make your home feel a world away.
What better place to buy lush linens from than one of the world's premier hoteliers? The Ritz-Carlton Linen Collection is made of sateen-striped, 400-thread count cotton sheets that are handmade in Italy. Each set includes one flat sheet, one fitted sheet and two pillowcases. Prices start at $375 for a queen-sized set. If that price turns you off, try thinking of it as a long-term investment—especially once you consider that just one night in the most basic room at the Hotel Ritz Madrid in Spain (one of Ritz-Carlton's foremost properties) would set you back $425.
