Space out

Whether you have a bed to yourself or co-sleep, no-one likes to feel confined to a small space or at risk of falling out of bed at night.  Sleep disturbance is the enemy of quality sleep, which is why making the most of every last centimetre of sleeping space is really important. But how can...

On the bright side

The clocks have changed and it’s really beginning to feel as though Spring is sprung. Not least of all there’s a sense that the lighter mornings really can equate to brighter mornings, enabling us to begin our days feeling more positive and energised.  Light plays an instructive role in our circadian rhythm. Impacting everything from...

Look and feel

People are getting better and better at feeling when the time’s right to change their mattress. The general advice is that you should change your mattress every 10 years, but often people don’t need to set a date in their calendar to know when their mattress isn’t giving them everything they need any more in...

Go botanical 

The warmth of Spring is tantalisingly near and - after this winter especially - we’ve never been more in the mood to refresh our homes. Introducing fern patterns, moss colours, fresh green textures and floral designs is a quick and sophisticated shortcut to a fresh, botanical design theme for your home. It’s not just about...

Remarkable handiwork 

With a luxury Millbrook Bed, we like to think the difference in quality is apparent from near or from far. However, as you look closer, the remarkable handiwork is unmistakable. That’s because there are some details we think are so important that, even in an age of advanced automation, we take care of them by...

The small things

We all know there’s good and bad ways in which the small things in life can add up to punch considerably above their featherweight. Take silk for example. Mysteriously made, each tiny silk cocoon consists of a raw silk thread that can measure up to 900 metres long - that's the length of 18 Olympic...

Sweet shop rules

Remember the excitement of a pick-n-mix? We do. Carefully picking and mixing our perfect selection of penny sweets was almost a bigger treat than the sweets themselves. We chose to put in as few cola bottles or as many as we’d like, we filled 99% of the bag with foam shrimps or had one of...

Uncommon knowledge 

At Millbrook Beds we think the best way to create naturally beautiful beds is not only to use naturally beautiful fillings, but also to spend time really getting to know what it is about the natural fabrics and fillings we use that makes them so unique. At Millbrook Beds we use regular and Egyptian cotton...

Up the ante

The arrival of March and a handful of bright sunny days has inspired us in many ways, including upping the ante in what we wear. Let’s face it, there’s been no dressing up this winter. There were no festive gatherings, parties or events and a hefty proportion of the nation have lived out the first...

Slow mornings

We’re willing to bet there’s a fair few families who’ll have mixed feelings when the 8th March rolls around - overwhelming relief at the lifting of the burden of homeschooling, but also sorry to let go of slow mornings. Dark mornings and a lockdown lifestyle have, to a lesser or greater extent, enabled many families...
