Goodnight, sleep tight: Creating a beautiful bed.

It’s important to have a good night’s sleep. A good night’s sleep will often fix most problems. You’ll wake up relaxed, refreshed and ready to tackle the day. Plus it’s great for your skin.

The key to a good night’s sleep isn’t just one thing. We recommend creating a comfortable and beautiful environment that will work towards relaxation and wellbeing.

First you start with a good bed.

We recommend the Iona Bed by Natural Bed Company. It’s contemporary, and designed to be the focus of any room that it’s in. Plus, it looks gorgeous!

If your bedroom decor needs to be kicked up a notch to something extra special, you could try a four poster bed, like this one from Turnpost Beds.

The next thing to add is a mattress. Abaca Ltd is the place to go. Based in Wales, they make an entire selection of sustainable mattresses by hand, which are designed to fit all sizes.

Duvets and pillows can be found at Adam Curtis Online – made in the Shetland Islands from wool sourced from Yorkshire. Snuggle into these, they’re perfect to nest in.

Linen is taken care of by Sleep Organic. Slip into this Silver Lining set for a special experience. It’s silky smooth against skin.

For those in-between seasons add a few throws. Colour, or neutrals, whatever suits your taste.

The Anna Loom Avani throw is woven from peace silk, a method of creating silk that does not harm the silkworm.

For something geometric and contemporary, Chalk Wovens create their printed throws at a traditional mill in Wales.

For something warmer, try a blanket.

These ones are By Lisa Watson blankets in the Fair Isle pattern – the size is gorgeous to cosy up in.

If summer is coming up, then a bedcover is perfect.

We love the vibrant colours of Bluehanded. Isn’t that indigo just rich and vivid?


Finally, cushions.

I like a few on my bed, mostly for decor, tossed to the floor when climbing into bed.

Rowena Ardern’s cushions celebrate nature and beauty in its many forms capturing the essence of a place.

Colour + Form specialise in bold prints and graphic designs across all their products, including these cushions.

If you like linen, then Madder + Cutch is the way to go.


We do also recommend a bedtime routine.

A nice hot bath with House of Beau’s bath oil, followed by some Seascape sleep oil dabbed onto the wrists works wonders.

Born and raised in India, she spent some time in the US, completing a degree in Psychology and Biology, after which she moved to the UK in 2010 to study an MSc in Finance and Management. She can often be found obsessing over her plants, trying to clamp down on an ever-increasing collection of nail polish or exploring and taking photos of random corners of London. She absolutely loves a good bed with many, many pillows and can not live without a colourful bedspread.
