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...

Take comfort

Once upon a time we used to take pride in our homes, now we take comfort in them. Homes that were once hubs for entertaining friends and family have quietly evolved into spaces that bring us comfort. The clothes we wear (or don’t wear), the foods that fill our cake tins and cupboards, the lush...

New bed, new you…

Yes the eagle-eyed among you will recognise the slogan that beckons the arrival of National Bed Month! The entire month of March is National Bed Month, an annual campaign by the National Bed Federation that helps highlight the relationship between a good bed and a good night’s sleep. Focusing on improving sleep quality, sleeping healthier...

It’s how you frame it

Much has been made lately of the ‘working from bed’ craze in the current lockdown.  Whether it’s a sign that people have total lockdown fatigue, or whether it’s because of the miserable weather, but many have taken the view that they can work more comfortably in bed and so that’s where they’ll stay thank you...

Makeover

There’s a reason why the pivotal point of so many storylines involves a character makeover - whether it’s in physical appearance or in attitude, having a makeover makes us feel better about life and can give us a more positive outlook for the future. And if a 2020 lockdown experience was about making over our...
