Maybe one of the variegated varieties of Carex? There are some with green centers, cream to white margins/edges and others with cream to white centers and green margins. Two from our database:

Japanese Grass Sedge (Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance')

I agree it seems to be a Sedge, but I have no idea which. Lin's suggestions look good to me.

Englisheccentric, I think your "grass" is an Iris relative: Sisyrinchium striatum. If you zoom in on my picture, you can see some black leaves at the base. I never thought of it as a houseplant, and it may not like that environment. Not enough light, and too much water would be my best guess..

The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us.
