Peace & Comfort: Best Colors to Paint Your Bedroom

By |August 29th, 2017|0 Comments


Your bedroom needs to exude peace and calm as it happens to be considered the most ‘personal space’ in any home. Now, you might want to paint the bedroom wall your favorite color, but it might end up being a color that takes away from a sense of peace you require.

If you’ve been wondering about what colors are suitable for bedroom walls and why then here are a few suggestions to help you decide

Plan as a whole

If your bedroom is large and also includes a bathroom as well as a dressing area, it’s recommended that you select a color that will work as a whole. The paint in the bedroom and the bathroom don’t need to match, but there should be able to complement each other to create a unified look. Selecting a neutral shade for your bedroom walls will help you give the space a pop of color through the bed linens, lamps, and other accessories that you have.

It’s all about peace

Stay away from vibrant colors when it comes to painting bedrooms. Vibrant colors are able to stimulate senses without your realization. If you enter your bedroom to sleep but start feeling awake, it might be due to the sharp color scheme.

Also, don’t forget the kid’s bedroom. Parents might be tempted to add bright colors to their kid’s room but doing so can overstimulate a child’s senses too. Go for muted alternatives of the colors you want your kid’s bedroom to be.

Best Colors for Bedroom Walls

Green


Green happens to be one of the best colors to paint bedroom walls. Green is all about peace and will help bring such a feeling into your bedroom as well. It’s also associated with coolness and warmth. Furthermore, there’s a wide variety of colors for you to choose from. It’ll also help your bedroom look modern without being too heavy on the eyes. Such a color looks amazing if you have bare wooden furniture.

Red


If you’re partial to red, you’ll need to be a bit careful with the shade you use. Red is all about stimulation, and it can end up being too overwhelming if not done right. Go for a more muted tint. You can also only paint one of the walls if you prefer.

Red is also associated with love and passion which can be a good thing for some in the bedroom. However, just make sure you don’t select bare wooden pieces as that’ll clash with the red. A red-orange combination can work well for offering a subtle relaxing atmosphere

Yellow


Similar to red, yellow is another good color for bedroom walls if done right. Go for softer shades as they’ll help exude a feeling of relaxation on your senses the moment you enter the room. Muted yellow is said to help give any room a calming effect. It also helps to make a room feel bigger, which is important, so you don’t feel closed-in while trying to sleep.

Blue


The color blue is the traditional route you can’t go wrong with. Blue can work both ways. You can go for softer shades for a sense of calmness or even darker shades for a more warming feel. Deeper shades of blue are perfect for offering a backdrop that’s suitable for classic furniture, artwork, and even antiques.

According to a survey by Travelodge, blue was revealed to play a role in helping people get the best night’s sleep. People who slept in blue painted bedrooms reported sleeping an average of around eight hours.

So, if you’re deciding on the color to paint your bedroom walls, you should ensure going for softer or muted shades to help the said space feel relaxing.

5 Tips for getting a better night sleep at Summer

By |July 28th, 2017|0 Comments

Getting a better night’s sleep at summer can be challenging as you are exposed to the heat, humidity and of course annoying insects like flies and mosquitoes. These things can ruin a good night’s sleep so if you want to make the most of it, here are some tips to make your summer sleep more comfortable:

Invest in a good quality and comfortable bedding set.

Who said you don’t need any bedding during summer to cover yourself? While a full bedding set is not necessary, you need one thin layer of bedding like for example a thin sheet to cover your body while you sleep and protect it from insects and excess humidity in the atmosphere.

However, since you will inevitably sweat, you want to invest in something that is breathable and allows fresh air to circulate to control excess temperature. Check out our breathable bedding solutions to make your sleep more comfortable.

Spray an insect repelling spray onto your sheets.

As your hands and face cannot be covered completely under sheets, you will need some level of additional protection from pesky insects. The most practical, safe and efficient way to prevent insects from coming near you is to spray your sheets and pillow cases with an insect repelling spray. It is far safer and more ecological than using tablets and liquids.A good alternative is to light a small set of citronella candles floating over a ball of water that will stay lit for all night–the water underneath will help prevent any incident of fire.

Don’t eat or drink heavily two hours or less before you go to bed.

Since our digestions slow down at night time, eating and drinking heavily will make you feel bloated and have trouble falling asleep–sometimes it may also lead to sudden wake ups during the night. If you want to eat or drink something, eat something light that contains tryptophan or relaxing agents to prepare you for sleep. Yogurt and bananas or chamomile and valerian ice teas are great for this purpose. The yogurt and bananas specifically contain tryptophan which increases the production of melatonin–a hormone release during a good night’s sleep, and iced teas contain relaxing catechins. Also make sure you avoid any coffee or other stimulant substances at least 6 hours before sleep because these may cause insomnia. Don’t forget to have a bottle of water nearby so you don’t get dehydrated.

Wear a mask to prevent any pollen allergies.

If spring and summer months are a nightmare for you because of pollen allergies, you can protect yourself by wearing a simple paper mask while sleeping so it doesn’t come into contact with your nostrils.

Unplug and turn off any devices

Unplug and turn off any devices that generate heat and radiation like your laptop, smartphone, and of course TV. These are not only extra heat sources, the radiation and brightness they emit tricks your brain to stay alert when it should be sleeping.

How To: 8 Ways to Get Your White Duvet Cover Clean

By |July 26th, 2017|0 Comments

Maintaining a perfectly clean white duvet cover isn’t as easy as it seems. Accidental spills, pet hair and other stains and dirt can come from anywhere and anytime. Plus, you don’t want to risk harboring any nasty germs and bacteria or parasites that could put you long-term health under risk. On the opposite side of the spectrum, over-washing or not washing your white duvet cover properly can ruin the delicate fibers of the fabric and even its bright white color.

Fortunately, there are some expert washing tips and proper ways to keep your white duvet cover perfectly clean and white. Here they are:

1.Wash it separately and only with other delicate white linens and clothes.

If you wash it with linens of random colors, you will risk ruining its white color and causing friction  and pilling due to the difference in fabric textures. 

2.Avoid using strong detergents.

Strong detergents are not good for the delicate texture of your white duvet cover as it loosens the integrity of their fibers. The best alternative to avoid this is to use a mild detergent, and preferably one optimised for white linen and cool temperatures. Ecological detergents or washing balls are also fine for this purpose.

3.Always wash in cold temperatures.

As in the case of using strong detergents, washing at hot temperatures can ruin the delicate fibers of your white duvet cover. Ideally, you want to wash at temperatures below 40 degrees. Anything more than that is not indicated.

4.Avoid using any fabric softeners.

Fabric softeners used often can coat your white duvet cover with residue and loosen them, decreasing that way the life of your white duvet cover.

5.Use bleach and oxy-clean in moderation.

If your white duvet cover has dirts and stains that can’t be possibly lifted with just detergent and water, you can use sporadically bleach or oxiclean powder to clean up all the stains and keep your duvet cover squeaky clean. However, you should only do so only in case of persistent dirt and stains as too much bleach can damage the fibers of your duvet cover.

6.Use stain remover spray before washing or for a quick fix of stains.

In case of accidental spills or pet stains e.g you can use a stain removal spray to dilute the stain prior washing or even eliminate the stain completely on its own, without having to wash the entire duvet cover.

7.Invest in second duvet cover set without paying a fortune.

Having a second white duvet cover at an affordable cost, can save you time and effort as having only one requires more frequent washing. Just make sure your second duvet cover is stored  at a cool and dry place away from dust and dirt and you can swap instantly in case the first was stained

8.Use a non-harsh drying method.

Drying your duvet cover naturally is the least harsh way among others to make it dry without ruining the structure of the fibers. Line drying inside or outside home is the most preferred choice.

In any case, you have to check the original instructions in the label of your duvet cover such as washing and ironing temperatures as not all duvet covers all made of the same material and depth. If you are unsure, it’s best to refrain from using extra strong methods and use milder ones instead to wash your white duvet cover in order to avoid the risk of discoloration and tearing apart its fibers.

5 Essential Summer Tips To Refresh Your Bedroom

Summer brings a lot of things along. There’s pleasant weather, a lot of greenery to enjoy, beautiful evenings, and lots of flowers. When it comes to decorating your house, it’s a good thing to embrace the seasons. Adapt to the changes and allow Mother Nature to provide you with the inspiration you need. A lot of people tend to stay focus on a fixed theme and while that works for certain seasons you’ll probably end up getting bored without seeing change.

Now all of us don’t have the finances to redo everything in the house. Buying new furniture for summer or painting all the walls can cost a lot. However, what you can do is make some easy changes to give your rooms a new look. The bedroom is important in every house. It is a place for you to rest and recharge yourself after a long day. That is why it needs to exude a sense of calmness. It needs to be a sanctuary you can relax in.

So, wondering how to refresh your bedroom for summer? Let’s get to it!

Here are few easy-to-follow tips that can help refresh your bedroom for summer, providing you a space that’s stylish and lively.

Go for Brighter Linens

Go for Brighter Linens

While we pack away winter linens when summer arrives what we don’t tend to do is select summer linens that can give the bedroom a fresh look. Don’t be tempted to pull out those old linens from the cupboard. It is time for you to change this up. To refresh your bedroom you should invest in newer and brighter bedding.

Go for duvet cover sets that have floral patterns. They don’t need to perfect flowers per se, but as long as the design has a floral touch, it’ll do. You can also go with duvet cover sets that have splashes of color on a monotone base.

Use the Summer Light

Summer brings a lot of natural light for you to enjoy due to the longer days. Why not create a little seating area in your bedroom to make most of the light? Make sure that it’s near a window though. This will provide your bedroom with a more calming feel even if you don’t have time to sit down and read a book every day.

Add a canopy

Floaty fabrics, with bright floral designs, look wonderful when they happen to be fluttering near the windows or even around your bed. They also offer protection against bugs.

Bring the Greenery Inside

Adding indoor plants to your bedroom will make it feel fresher. Furthermore, it will also help to add some life to the overall interior. While you can go for fake plants, real indoor plants tend to improve the quality of air. Also, if you want to sleep in a fragrant bedroom go for potted plants that have a lot of flowers. You can also opt for small lemon trees or fragrant star jasmine. Who knows, you might end up attracting a butterfly or two, depending on the kind of plants you decide to add.

It’s All About the Colors

Summer is all about colors and you can do so much with the right color palate. Now, if your bedroom has walls that are dark colored, there’s no need for you to worry about ruining the look you want to achieve. You can still get a summery bedroom feel by adding a few summer-themed pillows. There are also other things that can be done. Why not put a white duvet cover on the bed and then pair that up with pillows with splashes of color?

Do try the tips above to refresh your bedroom for summer.

How often should you change your duvet and pillows?

By |May 26th, 2017|0 Comments


All of us have a favorite set of pillows, duvets, and mattresses. Without them, we just aren’t able to get the sleep we want, and that’s why we tend to use all three of these things when going to bed. Now, while most of us might end up giving our duvet a good old shake (in hopes to get rid of any dirt), we don’t necessarily change them as frequently as we should. And that leads to the question most of us don’t know the answer to.

How often should you change your duvet and pillows? Well, let’s find out.

Let’s face it, not a lot of us feel inclined to change our duvet and pillows. Either we don’t have the time, are too lazy, or just don’t care. Whatever the reason might be, the point remains that not doing so ends up harming our quality of sleep.

When to Replace Duvets?

Knowing when to replace duvets can be a bit tricky considering people commonly hide them with duvet covers and they will last you a long time before the need to replace them occurs. However, signs of lumping, lack of overall plumpness, wear and tear, and help you determine if it is time for you to replace a duvet.

Another reason you should replace duvet deals with cleanliness. A lot of people tend to buy a single duvet which they then proceed to use all year around. The problem with doing so is that when people happen to use a duvet (meant for winter) during the summer, it likely gets tossed on the floor where it sits throughout the night picking up dust, mites, germs, and other tiny bits from the surface.

A good thing for you to do is buy seasonal duvets which you can change with the environment you sleep in. Doing so will also provide you with the opportunity to clean a summer duvet during winter and the winter one during the summer without having to worry about what you’ll cover yourself up with while asleep. Furthermore, it will help prolong the lifespan of the duvet as it’ll be used during the season it’s meant for instead of being used all year long.

As for simple cleaning, you should try and clean a duvet at least one a year or after every six months if you’re able to.

When to Replace Pillows?

Before an answer is provided to you first try and give an answer to another question. When was the last time your bed pillows were replaced? If you had to think for a while, it might mean you haven’t done so recently.

It is recommended that you replace a pillow case at least every three weeks (and even sooner if possible). Furthermore, you should clean the pillow after every three months.

However, when it comes to replacing pillows, the entire thing is dependent on a few factors. High quality pillows can last more than a year, but individuals who are allergic to dust and other allergens might have to replace a pillow sooner.

Some of the signs that can tell you that a pillow needs to be replaced include the said pillow becoming lumpy, losing its plump, an increase in any allergic reactions, or if you need a new kind of pillow due to a medical condition.

Keep in mind that you require sufficient sleep if you wish to function properly. Not being able to sleep comfortably will make both your body and mind feel stressed. So, make sure that you keep your duvets and pillows clean as well as replace them if they start becoming lumpy and not being able to provide you with the comfort you require when you close your eyes.
