My Perfect Bedtime

This week, we caught up our Retail Marketing Manager, Nike, who told us all about her #myperfectbedtime choices. What’s your perfect bedtime routine? I have a cool shower and make sure my bedroom window is open, I’m always hot! My mind is permanently active, so before I go to bed I like some time to unwind and switch off. I tend to relax with a good book in bed, I find that this in itself helps me sleep. I also write down any reminders for the next day so my ‘to do’ list isn’t humming around my head. What’s your...

Now that Spring is here, you may want to put away your heavy bedroom throws and thick cushions and start having a small spring clean.

Ever wanted a cosy cottage bedroom setting? Try mixing calming pastel shades with dark toned furniture and vintage accessories – this will help your bedroom provide the rich backdrop which often characterises a cottage-themed interior.
