There is nothing quite like falling into your own bed at the end of the day with fresh linen and a comfy pillow for a good nights sleep.  Today I have some tips on how to make the perfect bed for a great nights sleep.

Whether you choose a fabric bedhead or you have a bed and base which will give you more under bed storage, there are so many options to choose from.

A classic linen tufted bedhead is a simple and luxurious design to use in your bedroom.  Choose a natural linen tufted bedhead or one in a soft blue or pink linen.

Because my cushions and bed throws are in shades of blues I would probably  be looking at a natural linen bedhead for my bedroom.

Mattress & Pillows

A mattress and pillow protector can not only extend the life of your bedding but also add some comfort to your bed too.

Mattress and pillow protectors come in bamboo, cotton and wool.  They are usually machine washable too.

When it comes to choosing your quilt, look at the warmth, weight and fibre content for your perfect quilt.  You may want to change your quilts and use a lighter one for the summer and a warmer one for the cooler months.  Here are some quilt options that are available.

  • Goose Down – Soft, Light & Fluffy
  • Allergy friendly – Microfibre quilt
  • Warmer/heavier – Wool quilt
  • Lightweight – Cotton quilt
  • Eco friendly – Bamboo quilt

Choosing the right pillow can be the difference between a good or bad nights sleep. Your pillow should keep your head and neck balanced while you sleep.   Pillows come in a variety of fillings.

  • Goose down/feather
  • Feather
  • Memory foam
  • Latex
  • Microfibre
  • Synthetic

Sheet Set

I love beautiful bed linen, especially when it comes straight from the clothes line.  The higher the thread count the less wrinkles your sheets will have.  There is nothing better than popping into a freshly made bed with beautiful bed linen at the end of the day.

Its important to take the time to find the right sheets for your bed so you can get the best nights sleep possible and its always recommended to wash your new sheets before you place them on your bed.


Quilt Cover

I don’t know about you, but I get so excited when I need a new quilt cover.  I love pattern and texture but find I prefer a plain white quilt cover for my bedroom.

Choosing a quilt cover can determine the style of your bedroom.  Whether your bedroom style is boho, hamptons, country or coastal.

Finishing Touches

Bring your bed to life with some European and decorative cushions.  Place a bed throw over the end of your bed and a throw rug too if needed.

Introduce decorative layers to your bed with colours, textures and pattern that complement or contrast to create your own stylish bedroom retreat.
