No doubt you have started thinking about redesigning your bed space to treat yourself for Christmas, if not, it is worth considering this comment from Good Housekeeping Magazine “We should give the bedroom time – don’t put off decorating your bedroom. Treat it with the same care as your living room and dining room, after all you are one-third of your life in it”. On that note, this week we would like to talk about bed design. First of all your bed is the centrepiece of the sleep space, it is going to play a large role and it is essential that you make the right choice. Also, the easiest way to lift the mood and ambience of your bed space is to replace bedding with soft sheets and smart a duvet cover.
