Autumn is already under way and the other day I shared the best things about Autumn. Many readers agreed during the autumnal months we love snuggling up warm in our jumpers and sip on something hot. We are all the preparing our wardrobes dumping our summer sandals and pulling our ankle boots out. Though for some of us Autumn is not our favourite season but one thing I do love is snuggling up in bed. In today’s post I want to share how to get your bedroom cosy and ready for autumn.
There is nothing more lovely than snuggling up in New beddings or waking up to freshly washed beddings. Though for some beddings might not been on budget you could add lenor unstoppables in wash secrets to your washing. The beddings can keep in storage for over 8 weeks and will still smell fresh. I use lenor unstoppables in all my washing and now my pajamas always smell fresh when I go to bed.
Speaking of pajamas there is nothing like really thick and warm PJs to snuggle up in and some fluffy sleepers. I am a sucker for good pajamas and Primark always has some good ones in stock with different designs. Last month I popped into the Oxford Circus branch and saw some Harry Potter pj’s which I was ever so tempted to buy.
It’s starting to get darker quite early these days and mornings are not much better either. I am someone who loves to ensure my room is as dark as possible when I sleep. Somehow having sunshine peep through my window in the morning doesn’t excite me at all. I did some curtain shopping a while back for my parents and my brother from the made to measure range and we love them.
For me curtains have to be able to do two things: keep the light out and warmth in. There are so many options on the market nowadays but I am too lazy to go shopping around so online shopping is my friend.
Many companies offer ready made curtains, made to order and many more to give variety to the ordering process. So long as you know your measurements then buying curtains for your bedroom or Home is easy as 1-2-3. You can check ready made curtains at Yorkshire Linen Co to match the theme you have in mind.
I know many people only keep fleece blankets on sofas or in the car but I have them in my room too. It’s not yet cold enough to pull out my winter duvet so to keep me extra warm I add a fleece blanket to my summer duvet. It works a treat and if I am working from my bed (which I often do even though I have an office at home). It’s nice to make my bed but stick sit on top with my fleece blanket as I peruse my emails.
New mattresses or mattress topper
Regular readers of A July Dreamer know last November I was sent a lovely mattress from Leesa Mattress. 10 months on I am still singing it’s praises because it truly revolutionized my sleep and the comfort is next to none. Those who know me know I am a self-confessed insomniac and often survive on 3-4 hours sleep.
The Leesa mattress definitely changed that for me and now I log in 6-7 hours a night unless stressed. Recently we got sent a new mattress from Fuum which I gave to my parents and they love it too. It’s similar design to the Leesa Mattress and I can not recommend it enough either. The importance of a good night sleep on a comfortable and cosy bed should never been underestimated.
