Personalising the Bedroom

Bed Makeover

My bedroom is my sanctuary. It is where I go to relax and sleep, so I like to keep it airy, nice, clean, and organised. I also like to see my bedroom tastefully decorated. It helps me sleep better.

I have previously written about my good night sleep essentials, and the importance of having a quality mattress and bedding. However, I have also discovered the benefits of having a good headboard. Having a bed headboard does not only add style and character to your bedroom, but it also protects your head and your precious belongings from going behind the bed.

If you are anything like me, then you will have things you do leave under your pillow on some days, when you cannot be bothered to keep them in the appropriate places. Things like Books, Socks, Phones, iPads, even Kindles when I fall asleep reading. Those sort of things find themselves under my pillow on some days, but since I got my headboard, I no longer have to worry about them falling behind the bed, and the hassle of getting them out.

Apart from headboards protecting our belongings, they make sleep personal, for me anyways. There is something about having a headboard, that adds a bit more coziness to the room. Since I bought my first headboard, I can’t imagine having a bed without one now. All beds in my house have a headboard, but I am looking at changing 1 or 2, as they have gone wonky, thanks to my darling son bouncing on and off them constantly.

Here are some I am currently loving at the moment –

My Good Night Sleep Essentials

Every now and again, I like to write a lifestyle post that has nothing to do with fashion, beauty, or blogging.  Variety they say is the spice of life, and I like to keep Fashion and Style Police well varied, so we all don’t fall asleep, lol.  I enjoy writing about various topics, I find it refreshing, but I like to keep all the topics related somehow.



I am seriously looking forward to Summer. I am so sick and tired of winter. I know I have said that a billion and one times already, but it feels like it has been winter since forever. I am looking forward to some sunshine and longer days but I will miss layering. This winter has felt longer than normal and it is even getting colder here in Cheshire, so am wondering if it will ever end.

We will be looking at making some home improvements during the summer which I am very excited about. The home office is currently a dump site so that needs sorting out, because working on the sofa and on the bed is doing my back no good. Also, I need to look out for some cheap beds, we have two that need replacing, and we need some new beds for the kids as well, they are growing out of the beds faster than fast, so that needs sorting out too.

Also, need to update our bedding collection. I love a modern bedroom, the bedroom above is my ideal bedroom. I am loving the lamp on the bedside table and the sheets look amazing, bedroom goals right here.  I like my duvet covers when they are new, I mean, who doesn’t like new/clean sheets?

I value a good night sleep a lot.  I get really grumpy when I don’t get enough sleep. So having the room in the right temperature, a nice warm cup of milk or hot chocolate with right mattress, crisp bedding and some white noise for when the little people are awake is essential.

What are your good night sleep essentials? Do share.
