Into the blue

True blue.... is a beautiful hue. If you’re using blue tones as the inspiration for your bedroom makeover it’s a great choice. Not only does in bring to mind an oasis of blue, blue tones are considered to have a calming influence on us - so much so, there are even claims that the colour...

Tried and true

Buying something that can stand the test of time isn’t always just about buying a product that isn’t liable to fall to pieces, not in the truest sense anyway. At Millbrook Beds, our ranges of luxury mattresses and beds are developed with an experienced design, quality and know-how that all adds up to a product...

A simple equation

We spend approximately a third of our lives asleep. It’s not a difficult equation but it’s amazing how, for something that occupies so much of our lives, how little we can be prepared to invest in our sleep. Eight hours a day is a considerable amount more of our time than we spend in our...

Sewing machine day

At this remarkable moment in time, we can think of few things we’ve been more grateful for than our sewing machines. In recent weeks and months, our amazing sewing team and their sewing machines have enabled us to be part of something far bigger even than crafting #perfectsleep in the sewing of mattresses and beds....

As homeowners, we like visible home improvement projects don’t we? After much care and attention, nothing is nicer than a front garden blooming with beautiful flowers for all passers by to see.

But, to us, ‘slipping into something more comfortable’ has an obvious...

Far flung

Anxiously looking forward to a time when you can re-welcome house guests? Us too. Far flung family and friends may not be near, but they’re nonetheless dear to us, and we miss having the freedom to fill our homes with loved ones that don’t live nearby. And, until the time comes when each and every...

In our hands

“We can land men on the moon, but, for all our mechanical and electronic wizardry, we cannot reproduce an artificial fore-finger that can feel as well as beckon.” John Napier Our hands and fingers are an amazing design; endlessly practical, creative and expressive - as Napier observes, try as we might, technology will never supersede...
