All season wool bedding from woolroom.

This weekend was unusually warm. It felt like Summer again. Don’t you think that the weather is just so unpredictable nowadays? As I write this, the skies are threatening a storm. Do you find it difficult to sleep when temperatures fluctuate like that? I know I do. woolroom So pleased to have discovered the wool bedding range from woolroom.

I never knew that wool bedding could regulate temperature, keeping you warm when its cold and cool when it’s warm.

My all season duvet from woolroom is so amazing, it has a light weight duvet perfect for Spring or Summer, a medium weight duvet for Autumn, and when put together, makes a warm Winter weight duvet. Apart from getting the temperature right, another common problem that affect sleep is allergy.  How do you banish those house dust mites that cause eczema and asthma like symptoms?

Scientific testing have shown that mites cannot survive on wool, hence the added bonus of woolroom’s range being awarded the Allergy UK seal of approval. Have you ever tried a mattress topper before?

Here you can see my Deluxe wool mattress topper from woolroom. It’s like sleeping on the most comfortable bed cushion ever. It was so soft, I felt like I was floating into dreamland. My kids love that mattress topper so much, that they’ve been asking me to get them one for their own beds too. To complete my woolroom bedding collection, I also tried out two new wool pillows. You can even unzip the pillows to fluff up the wool and adjust for comfort. Last but not least, and definitely a plus point, is that most of woolroom’s bedding are machine washable, making life convenient. What do you think? Are you a wool bedding convert like I am? I’ve been using my bedding for a few weeks now, and absolutely adore it.

I would highly recommend you to try it out. The bed topper is my favourite.

Hope you have enjoyed the post. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

An Autumn living room refresh with Pad Lifestyle.

Happy October! As Autumn is here, I’ve decided to give my living room a refresh. Autumn living room Since the days are getting shorter and darker, I’ve decided to go for a bright and vibrant look, but still maintaining some Autumnal tones in the colour palette. I’ve turned to Pad Lifestyle, an online and physical store based in Edinburgh, with a beautifully curated collection of homewares, for my room refresh. I’ve layered my sofa with cushions from bluebellgray, in painterly jewel tones of aubergine, aquamarine blue and emerald green, against a base layer of pink and blue Designer Guild pillows. For some extra coziness, especially on cold evenings, I’ve added a soft woolly throw. This charcoal grey Susan throw is from Care by Me. My square white coffee table has been replaced with this Eugenie round wooden one by Harto, which has added warmth to the room. I’ve styled it with a variety of new favourite coffee table books by Assouline and flowers. Love that bright pop of pink from the Ibiza book. One thing I adore about Autumn and Winter, is the excuse to indulge in hot chocolate.

I’ve decided to serve my cocoa from this earthy and organic looking Muuto push coffee pot.

I love the feel of the thick handles when pouring, and the warmth as I cup my hands around the mug. It’s nice to have the drink close by without having to reach out to the other coffee table.

I’ve placed this small portable Scandinavian style table from Design House Stockholm, alongside where I’m lounging on the sofa. Last, but not least, I couldn’t resist adding a pop of sunshine to the room. This Georges sofa is from Harto. Here’s a closer view So what do you think? Hope you’ve enjoyed my Autumn living room refresh.  I will be back soon with more interiors inspiration. Can’t wait to show you.

Autumn bedroom the White company My Autumn bedroom for cosy days in with The White Company

Summer is always full of busy months, so there’s lots of rushing around, and finishing tasks, before our long family holiday away.

I must admit, as much as I love Summer, I do welcome and take comfort from Autumn.

It’s almost as if the shorter days and cooler temperatures are giving me permission to slow down.

To kickstart my slow living, I’ve decided to transform my bedroom into a cosy and inviting space.

My Autumn bedroom will be perfect for weekend lie-ins, breakfasts in bed and lounging in pyjamas all day. I’ve turned to The White Company’s new Autumn bedroom collection to create my desired comfortable, and indulgent bedroom.

As the plan was to stay in bed, getting the bed linen right was key, something soft to cocoon into.

I picked the Symons bed linen in Egyptian cotton sateen,with a very high thread count of 1000, hence it was super soft and luxurious feel. I could have snuggled there in bed all day.  I added warmth and texture to the bed linen with a grey chunky knit lambswool bed throw and matching cushions from the Blakeney collection. Autumn bedroom Can you tell that the patterns on the throw have been inspired by a traditional Winter jumper? For added warmth on Winter nights, you could layer on this faux fur throw and pillows in Fig, also from the White Company. I’ve used it temporarily to cover over a sofa footstool, for a cosy little corner to sit and read.

I’ve selected a lace trim pyjamas set to lounge in.  Look at the pretty lace effect at the sleeves. Autumn bedroom All the ingredients for a perfect weekend in bed have therefore been put in place. This super soft natural velour robe is the perfect ‘stay at home’ house coat, for wandering around the house. I’ve paired the pyjamas with toasty warm cashmere socks. Last but not least, I always like to light a scented candle to create that sense of atmosphere.

This Wild Rhubarb candle, inspired by crisp Autumnal walks, with notes of freesia buds, plum blossoms, juicy red apples and ripe rhubarb, was the perfect finishing touch to an Autumn vibe at home. What do you think of my Autumn bedroom? I’m so pleased with my finds. Off to enjoy some breakfast in bed now in my Autumn bedroom.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.
