8 beautiful buys to ensure a good nights sleep

 

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary. Calm, quiet and beautiful to help you recharge and restore. Here’s our hotlist of eight things to put on your boudoir hotlist

 

1 A bedside lamp. Start the unwind process before bedtime by switching off all overheads and prepping for bed by the gentle glow of beautiful bedside lamps alone. We love the ‘Yoko’ table light by Anderssen & Voll for Foscarini. Available from Utility Design

2 Bedside tables with drawers. It’s essential to have drawers as the less clutter on top of your tables the better, and this table by Ercol for John Lewis, is a future classic in oak. John Lewis (Click the link for our edit of other Best Buys: bedside tables)

3 Trinket bowls. Keep those table tops clear by having a set of handy bowls or boxes in which to drop small items that might get lost inside drawers, like earring, keys or cufflinks. We love these nesting bowls from Oka.

4 Linen sheets. If you can only change one thing in your bedroom, then upgrade to 100% linen bedlinen. It’ll last you forever, and the difference in feel will make snoozing a dream. Caravane (Click the link for our Insider Guide: linen)

5 A plethora of pillows. Because we firmly believe you can never have too many. It’s also the perfect way to add that essential additional shot of colour and texture to your bed set. Aiayu at Cahetu

Adding a touch of spice can be as easy as adding a few pillows: From left Pink pillowcases, £42 each; duvet cover, £259; ‘Heather’ cushions (pictured in Grey and Velvet), £178 each; ‘Raul’ cushions (two pictured), £106 each, all Aiayu (aiayu.com)

6 And some extra comfy cushions. Smaller than your pillows, and just for the extra added luxe of it all. We love these handmade, hand-dyed velvet cushions by Kirsten Hecktermann. Keepers for ever.
