I guess I can answer my own question, given this this newest ensemble which uses the fitted sheet and four pillowcases from an American set, paired with German duvet covers and German sized pillow cases/pillows:
(Hey, these even match my blog background!)
Some women love to shop for purses or shoes or jewelry or sweaters. But not me; I love to shop for textiles and dishes. Weird, I know – and challenging, because you just can’t buy German-sized bedding/textiles in America. So I get creative, mixing and matching what we have from Germany (thanks in large part to some of my German blogging friends!) with what I can find in the US.
So add the above ensemble to these. Pretty soon, if I don’t control myself, we’ll have a different look for the bedroom each week for a few months running!

The ensemble I made from the fabric Marco brought me from India:
The softest, coziest polka-dot flannel on earth:
The stark black and white look (Tom’s favorite):
The spicy, on-fire look:
Another inverted look:
