Here are the top 3 signs which mean your mattress needs replacing: If you notice your mattress is becoming lumpy or squeaks when you sit on it, it’s definitely time for a new one.

How to: Best organise yourself for a house move

Packing for a house move is stressful at the best of times. Moving day is looming and you realise that you can't put off the packing any longer. What about those breakables and family heirlooms? Try planning ahead and reduce the potential for disaster on your moving day: Before you even start packing, make a priority list and consider what will need careful packing, and which items are covered for breakages. It’s also a good idea to estimate how many boxes you’ll need and where you’re going to get these from. If you’re packing any paint, bleach or aerosols –...

My perfect bedtime

Hatty works in the Marketing department at our Chichester HQ and we took the time this week to ask her about her #perfectbedtimes; here’s what she had to say: My perfect bedtime routine is to come home from work and have a nice warm bath! Then I’ll have some dinner and jump into bed nice and early (with freshly clean linen, of course!) to watch my favourite TV show, TOWIE. I just love to wear stretchy cotton pjs, fluffy socks and my lovely dressing gown when I’m in bed too. I don’t really read too often, but I do occasionally...

Top 3: Fictional bedrooms to stay the night

Your bedroom is your sanctuary and fictional characters are no different. A character’s bedroom is a reflection on their personality, helping to add some form of realism to their on-screen character. Some bedrooms are more iconic than others though, and here are our Top 3 bedrooms which we’d love to spend the night: Scarlett’s bedroom; Gone with the Wind The beautiful wall carvings of Scarlett’s interior make this bedroom a luxury setting.

Get the trend The Gold Rush

The gold grandeur of our upholstered Louis bedstead captures this season’s on-trend, beautifully bold bedroom look with perfection. Try to create rich and warm interiors for the most glamourous of bedroom settings and don’t forget to mix this colour palette with strong metals and neutral tones if you want to make a real impression. Vibrant hues like gold will certainly catch the eye of your guests but if you’re less certain about committing to such rich tones, then perhaps just change bedding, drapes or pillows before making more permanent colour changes. Why not take a closer look at our Gold...

How to: Iron your fitted sheets without an iron

Keeping your bed linen looking its best all of the time can be a little challenging, with bed sheets wrinkling up as soon as we get them out of our washing machines or dryers. But did you know there is no need to bring out the dreaded iron every time you want to iron out these creases? First, pop your fitted sheet onto your mattress, over your mattress protector. Then, lightly spray all of the sheet with water; don’t drench it but enough to give it a light covering. Now just pull the sheet tightly over all corners and leave...
