A Better Night's Sleep

We all love getting a good night's sleep and as a parent, it's definitely great when that happens!

As it's now a new year, as I've mentioned in previous posts (7 Goals for 2016 ) I think that it calls for a fresh start and that means a fresh new look in the bedroom.

I have always believed that a decluttered, tidy room that has happy and relaxing décor can go a long way in making you feel better (although with children, it's not always easy!) and in a bedroom, can help you get a good night's sleep, whether you're a parent or not.

Decluttering and tidying a room is easy, but what about the décor?

You probably don't want to hear about revamping a room just after Christmas, but you don't always have to spend a lot of money on replacing furniture or bedding to make a room look good. In fact, I like to move unused furniture around from other rooms to see how it looks.

With bedding, it's the same. Again, you don't need to replace all of the bedding. There are so many different places to go and so many choices.  A nice new duvet cover does the trick!

One great place is at Yorkshire Linen Co.

They have an amazing range of duvet covers, both for children and adults, and in various sizes too.

My favourite children's ones are:

Dream To Be - Ballerina

Racing Cars

Blast Off

Love To Dance

Marvel Comic Justice League

These are great for sprucing up your child's bedroom, especially if they're moving to a big bed! All of these also come with the pillowcases, which is great value!

The range of adult duvet covers are just as varied, from floral numbers:

Suri Pink

Lulu - Multi

To patterned:

Empire Elephant - Wine

My favourites though, are these, as they are fun and a bit different:

NYC Skyline

NYC Skyline - Reverse Side

London Underground

London Underground - Reverse Side

Again, all of these are well priced, come with pillowcases and are available in most sizes.

Yorkshire Linen Co's have an extensively wide range of duvet covers, which can be found here .

Now I've done our bedroom, I might have to go around and change the others too!

  1. Ooh, I love linens! That Blast Off one is great fun.
    We're huge fans of Cologne & Cotton for our bed linens.

  2. We decluttered our room a few weeks ago as we bought a new mattress and dressing table and I cannot tell you how good it felt! We get a much better nights sleep now too which is a bonus!

    Now we've done that we're onto our boys room and looking to upgrade them to bunk beds. We'll look to decluttered also and redecorate so these duvet sets from Yorkshire Linen look great. I love the rockets and Spiderman ones.

    Thanks so much for linking up to #KCACOLS and I hope to see you back again next week. X

  3. What lovely designs, I really like the London underground map. #KCACOLS

    1. I do too! I'm torn between that and New York!

  4. I love getting new bedding, it gives the room an instant makeover. The dancing set for girls is lovely! And I really love the Lulu Multi set. #KCACOLS x

  5. There are some lovely designs there! Nothing better than new bedding either! :) #KCACOLS

  6. Ooh I love a good de-clutter and clear out. So good for the soul I think. Yorkshire Linen Co are great. We bought a fab duvet set last Christmas with a stag pattern on. It washes lovely and looks fab.
    Good luck with the rest of your goals! #KCACOLS

  7. I'm a big believer in having a bedroom that's calm and peaceful - ours is white with pale calming colours like duck egg blue and no absolutely TV! #KCACOLS

  8. Nothing like a new duvet cover to make bedtime feel like a treat - not that it doesn't every day with children! #KCACOLS

  9. Such beautiful designs! Yep, a tidy, clutter-free room attracts good chi according to Feng Shui and can help you get a good night's sleep.

  22. I love new bedding, and am well overdue for a new set, although sometimes they are just so expensive. I will have to have a look at this company. I do love the underground ones! #bloggerclubUK xx

  23. I know what you mean about decluttering it always makes me feel better when we don't have clutter all round the place (very rare unfortunately!) They have some lovely options, really like the flower fairy one. Thank you for joining us at #BloggerClubUK hope to see you again next week xx
