Sure cure

There’s an old and oft-quoted famous Irish proverb that goes along the lines of... A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything. We love a good proverb, and there’s so much to love in this one.  Yes, on the surface of things we may not find laughter and rest...

Dream deep

Close your eyes and imagine every muscle in your body relaxing deeply and letting go of the day’s stresses and tensions. In fact, what you’ve just imagined is the experience of what it’s like to sink into the pocket sprung comfort of a luxury handmade mattress by Millbrook Beds. Our mattresses are deep in comfort....

Pulling back the covers

Few people would relish the thought of someone peeking under their covers of their bed - there are certain things in our lives we like to remain personal and the intimacy of our beds is one of them.

If you’re a movie buff you’ll no doubt realise that the 2019 line up of UK film releases is set to be dominated by sequels. Developing existing stories and themes of earlier blockbuster hits that have gone before them or reworking them into ‘live action’ formats, if you liked the former iterations, you’ll be happy...

Unforgettable

How can it be that we work so hard to keep our homes tidy and feeling welcoming and yet, at the end of a busy day as we come to relax and enjoy the fruits of our labour, our bedrooms can feel cluttered, untidy and far from welcoming?  Quite simply our bedrooms are out of...

Soften up

Looking for something new for your interior style in 2019? How about trying a softer approach? According to an article by Aneira Davies for www.homesandproperty.co.uk searches for ‘textile art’ on Pinterest rose by a staggering 1718% in the last year reflecting a growing trend for using textiles, mixed-media and woven designs to create an artistic...

Small mercies

Most people you’ll talk to in January will have something in common - they’ll probably be trying to change something. January comes around and we can yearn for change. We may begin with our social media profile picture (perhaps followed by changes to our appearance to actually look like our profile picture!), we may put...
