A shrine to self-restoration – never underestimate the importance of your bedroom. While we rest here, we also prepare our bodies, organise our thoughts and reflect. Of course, sleep is a fundamental part of our wellbeing, but so is the environment you create around it. Whether you need to decompress, melt away the day’s stresses or simply snooze, we all deserve a tranquil haven that feels our own to retreat into. That’s why we have gathered a few tips on how to create a sleep sanctuary that best suits you.
A CANVAS OF LINENS
To invest in quality linens is to invest in yourself. Having a variety of simple, timeless styles that you can move through, season to season can help to rejuvenate your bed, while also providing you with options depending on your mood.
Firstly, be sure to find a set made from breathable material such as cotton. Lofty and sumptuously soft, our bed linens use an extremely durable 200 thread count cloth called percale – keeping you content all night through.
Nurturing an ultra-smooth and silk-like feeling, it might be worth investing in sateen Egyptian cotton bedding if you move frequently during sleep or seek extra comfort.
For the Everyday: If you’re working with a tighter space that’s lacking in light, white linens create radiance and positivity while opening up the room. Beautifully versatile with subtle stitching, our Poulton and Mickleton bring an all-important lightness to any bedroom.
A Hint of Colour: Introduce warmth with hushed colourways. They can really make existing themes sing without overwhelming the room. Framed with broad borders and intricate lace stitching, both our Avebury and Hatherley designs are available in three soft-tone shades.
For Pattern Lovers: Evoking notions of ocean waves, pale blue patterns carry a wonderful feeling of serenity. For a more laundered look, gently contrasting stripes – such as our Broadwell range – embodies a peaceful nautical aesthetic.
It’s crucial to find a duvet that moves with you to maintain ventilation. You want luxury and quality in equal measure, without having to splash out.
Meet our Luxury Eco Down alternative duvets. A 100% cotton cover encases its layers of soft, down-like fibres that are made from recycled PET plastic bottles. Most importantly, our duvet is breathable. So it controls your temperature while cradling you with a heavenly sink-in feeling.
A WORTHY BED
The anchor that holds your sleep sanctuary together – your bed acts as the centrepiece from which interiors and décor can flourish. Your style and prerequisites should run throughout every crevice.
With its hand-applied limewash oak finish, our Camille bed offers an effortlessly elegant appeal. We love its subtle curves and detailing that pair beautifully with layers of weathered textures. Equally, Wilmslow Pale Grey rattan bed offers a calming and minimal take on classic chateau style – an excellent starting point if you’re seeking a little French sophistication. Or for a modern country feel, rustic oak furniture offers a welcome nod to the great outdoors. Inspired by antique furniture, our Winchcombe Oiled Oak sleigh bed has a wonderful natural grain – complement its warm, traditional charm with patterns in cooler tones.
LAYER WITH LOVE
Retreat under a den of snuggly quilts and draping throws. Switching up layers can renew your bed from a humble place to sleep into a joyful refuge to relax in. What’s more, with the assistance of blanket boxes or baskets, you can keep them neatly to hand.
Weekend lie-ins are sacred. Those blissful moments deserve something special like an irresistible throw with cashmere or lambswool. When reading, prioritise thicker padding to tenderly envelope into, such as as our cushioned bedspreads.
CLEANSE THE SOUL
Widely known for its sleep-inducing properties, lavender also reduces stress and anxiety by calming the central nervous system. Infuse your relaxation rituals with lavender home fragrances as a cleansing trigger for the brain that signals calm, while placing your phone away from the bed. We recommend our sensationally woody Dusk for inner peace or Sanctuary for a more evocative aroma.
Soothing Neutrals: It’s no secret that neutrals soothe the soul. Opting for muted bedding is incredibly accommodating and allows you to express yourself with bolder patterns and accessories.
Colour Combinations: A dash of colour lifts spirits and is easy to establish with a scattering of cushions. To achieve a sense of harmony, take care in considering the tones you’re working with and echo them with your pillow choices.
Playful Patterns: For added cosiness, try out subtle patterns. Pinpoint a few colours from busier pillow prints and marry them with simple neutrals to uphold balance.
Connecting to nature does wonders for easing stress levels and boosting creativity. Adorn your bedside table or desk with low-maintenance faux flowers – or wall art illustrating landscapes, flora or greenery can be just as effective!
