Before Christmas, I wrote about preparing for overnight guests and creating a little welcome basket for visitors.
Although we gave one of our guest rooms a little makeover recently — with some lovely new wallpaper and bedding — one of the things that the room still desperately needs is a new bed.
People used to come and stay with us and would often comment on what a good night’s sleep they’d had. But recently there have been more grumbles and moans, than compliments.
Possibly — due to the fact that the mattress is now 20 years old and has had to endure 4 house moves. I think the poor old thing had come to the end of it’s life and really needs replacing.
Thankfully, the January sales are in full swing already and this is the perfect time of year to snap up a new bed or mattress!
If you’re going to invest in a new bed, this is definitely the time to do it; I was having a little look at the Furniture Village website yesterday and they’ve got some gorgeous looking beds and divans for really reasonable prices.
Plus they’ve been running a Christmas Countdown. It features a cool, interactive, animated house which gives lots of handy ‘homestyle’ tips and also the opportunity to win lots of fabulous prizes; including this beautiful, sunburst inspired, Ondatta mirror. It has such a retro feel and would make an amazing centrepiece for a room.
New year, new bed… and a new mirror!
I think a brand new bed is just the thing our guestroom needs.
A good night’s sleep is a precious commodity — especially when you’ve got very young children — but thanks to the fab early-bird offers at Furniture Village, it won’t cost a fortune.
Better be quick!
