Simple. Sophistication.

Our home comforts have never mattered more to us.  Creating cosy spaces to relax and unwind separate from our work from home environments - and the world beyond our four walls - is about more than comfort, it’s about looking after our wellbeing. One of the easiest ways to achieve a simple, chic and sophisticated...

Rare Finds

Rare finds 2020 has been year to discover local finds. In an unprecedented mutiny against the globalisation that characterises our modern lives, in 2020 we’ve shopped locally, we’ve worked locally and spent our leisure time locally. Urban or rural - each beautiful in their own way - we’ve been forced to embrace the environment that...

The perfect fit

Would you buy a pair of jeans without trying them on? Would you climb a mountain in borrowed hiking boots? Of course not because, for some things in life, only a perfect fit will do.  At Millbrook Beds, we believe a mattress sits firmly within the category of the ‘some things in life’ where fit...

Hello Autumn

It’s not the most popular way of thinking, but we love it when the nights draw in. There’s something about switching on mood lighting earlier in the twilight hours and switching out salads for warming comfort food fare that doesn’t feel at all unwelcome to us. Another welcome seasonal change is that sleep seems to...

Goodnight world

Bedtime is here, the day is done.  The Earth has made another revolution and - in the time in between - we’ve succeeded, failed, loved, lost and laughed in the melting pot of accomplishments, conversations and emotions that shape our days. So as we bid adieu to another day, it feels like we should give...

Sunday feels

What does your perfect Sunday morning look like... Maybe starting off waking up to peace and quiet, rather than to the jarring sound of an alarm clock? Languishing in bed to read a book, extended news articles or just collect errant thoughts? Slow breakfasts that allow us to savour what we’re eating, rather than gulping...

Get off the rollercoaster 

Poor sleep and poor nutrition are very happy bedfellows.  If our sleep doesn’t give us what we need yo feel adequately recharged we can often find ourselves reaching for sugar as early as breakfast time, often setting ourselves up for a day of riding a rollercoaster of sugar highs and sugar lows.  Which begs the...

Cherry on top

Who doesn’t love a cherry on top?  It’s like finding a box of chocolates on your luxury hotel room pillow or receiving an unexpected discount on those coveted shoes at the checkout - you were already pretty happy to be staying in that hotel and buying those shoes - but the chocolates and discount were...

Forget me nots

It’s the month of forget me nots. As one of the signature flowers of September, forget me nots are an aptly-named reminder of the changing season. There’s lots to remember as September comes around, this September especially. With September being the most popular birth month, there’s plenty of birthdays to remember come September! And for...

Snuggle down season

Despite the fact that we spent several months wanting nothing more than to break free of our homes, it’s coming round to that time of year when it’s snuggle down season - and we can do little to resist it’s cosy charm. It’s that time of year when mornings have a damp and chilly feeling,...
