My Bed...

on Monday, 07 January 2013.

To me there isn't anything better than climbing into bed after a long, hard day, either at work or looking after Mads.  I can honestly say sometimes I actually look forward to lying down, relaxing and going to sleep.

When we moved into our house, the previous owners had painted the radiator black, the walls were bright green and they had the most horrible built in wardrobes.  I can't believe they would have ever had a calming atmosphere in the room to go to sleep in.  Our bedroom was the first room we decorated, we completely stripped it, replastered it and got soft spotlights on the ceiling.  The black radiator went as did the green walls- and instead we painted it in nice calming neutral colours.  

We went for the colourscheme of creams and light golds and it gives such a calming effect, in fact it is by far my most favourite room of the house.   Every night we give Mads a bath, and then dry her and get her into her PJ's on our bed, read her a story, and then all snuggle together while she has her 'milkies.'  She always asks for 'family cuddles' on our bed.

I was very excited therefore when John Lewis asked if I would like to review some of their bedding.  When you have a child and another on the way, the last luxury you can afford to buy yourself is bedding when you don't really need it, so I jumped at the chance of getting something new.  

They have lots to choose from on their website, but in the end I chose a stripy, reversable duvet cover and four pillowcases.  The website describes it as woven twill, but basically it is that kind of woolly, jersey material and is so unbelieveably soft to sleep on.  


It is so nice to snuggle under the covers after a long day.  After all there really is no place better to be than your bed.  


John Lewis sent me the duvet cover and pillowcases for the purpose of this review but all opinons are my own.

    Omg the green and black sounds really awful. How would someone every fall asleep in a room like that! The bedding sounds really lovely, I completely forgot they do bedding.

      They had some lovely choices, I struggled to choose! And the green and black was disgusting, I can't believe anyone would paint a radiator black! x

    Looks lovely - there are few things better than a freshly made bed, but a freshly made bed with new bedding is really one of life's simple pleasures! x
