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...

The sweet spot

A sweet spot is defined as a place, a precise spot, that is optimal for achieving whatever the desired effect. Sweet spots are commonly identified in business as representing the perfect balance between managing expenditure against achieving the result needed. They also come up regularly in sport where they represent the maximum result for a...

Minutiae 

Few people deal in details these days.  In our personalities, people are quick to label those who pay attention to details as ‘persnickety’ and, as consumers, we’ve grown accustomed to glazing over finer details such as quality and service in favour of the seductive appeal of powerful brands. At Millbrook Beds we care about the...

Queen bee

Ever wonder what it would be like to be King or Queen for a day?  Many of us have idly chatted about what unique and wonderful laws we’d create to transform life for our royal subjects, but recent upsets in the royal family inevitably lead us to question whether the reality of royal life matches...

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.

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...
