Bang on bamboo

Soft and sustainable, bamboo fibre is a perfect fit as a filling in our luxury handmade mattresses.  Sustainability is a big part of why we love bamboo - it’s the fastest growing plant... ever. And in optimum conditions bamboo can grow up to three feet in 24 hours, release more oxygen and absorb more carbon...

Autumn crafts

Autumn is the time of year to embrace crafts. With the cooler and darker evenings, many of us will pick up crafts again or perhaps even begin preparing handmade seasonal gifts in time for Christmas. Autumn’s also a fantastic time for children's crafts with everything nature has to offer in the way of colourful leaves,...

Wiggle room

It’s funny how many people still have an all-too-literal thought process when it comes selecting the size of their bed: a single bed for one person, a double for two. But, much like the narrow train of thought, it’s a thought process that doesn’t allow much wiggle room. A standard double bed allows co-sleepers 67.5cm...

Happy hour

What’s the happiest type of hour come this time of year? Simple. The type that gives us an extra hour in bed. Yes it’s time for the clocks to go back once more and - though there’s time to bemoan the return of dark mornings - for this week, let’s just focus on the happy...

Home from home

It’s hard to get a precise estimate on the percentage of the population working from home right now, but anything between half of workers to 60% seems to be a safe guesstimate. That’s more than half of the working population that has - whether they’ve wanted to or not - converted their homes into their...

Magic bullet

People give their entire careers, their lives even, in the quest of a magic bullet in various fields of medicine. The holy grail as it were for curing cancers... life limiting illnesses in children... degenerative diseases such as motor neurone disease, a ‘magic bullet’ is the notion of an immediate cure without negative side effects....

Hero in disguise 

All the best superheroes have a backstory revealing a conflict between good and evil, perhaps we enjoy the good things in life all the more for knowing they’re a bit naughty as well. Chocolate is one such hero in disguise as - despite our nation’s love for it - we can never quite determine if...

Touch of class

The experience of true luxury isn’t something you see, it’s something you feel. With the speed of modern day manufacturing, it’s easier for high street brands to churn out cheap fashion products that have all the appearance of catwalk looks but - while they might look the same - the experience of wearing them will...

True colours

How often do we let people see our true colours?  We’re not talking deep rooted personality traits, but rather the colours that represent our personalities in our homes. So much of the time, our reception rooms are decorated in accordance with interior trends, what we think looks ‘posh’ or a notion of colours that are...

Savvy sleep

Don’t we feel empowered living in our technology-rich times? Gone are the days when knowledge had to be handed down, taught, or we had to borrow a book from a library to learn something. Nowadays knowledge awaits us at a fingerprint, a swipe of a screen or a voice command. We can instantaneously access information...
