Tips For Getting Better Sleep

Since becoming parents one thing me and Perry definitely don't take for granted anymore is a good nights sleep. Yes we are lucky that both our children slept through the night since being a month old but now we have a toddler and a baby we are a lot more tired now, we go to bed late because we try spending a bit of time together in the evenings, or I play catch up with the housework and chores that I was unable to do in the day. All this has affected our sleep so I'm here to share some tips on getting a good comfortable nights sleep to help other parents out there! What little sleep we do get should be a good sleep, there is nothing worse than waking up feeling like rubbish and still tired. 
One thing a bedroom should be is cosy, comfortable and dark. We are about to start a make over in our bedroom so now seems a good time to look around for items to help make it more cosy and relaxing. I want to keep it quite neutral, but maybe introduce a pop of colour somewhere, I can do this with soft furnishings like bedding, curtains, light shade and also some decor pieces. Id also like to add some photo frames as we don't actually have any in our bedroom, and maybe some fairy lights to make it cosy in the evenings. 

First thing is bedding, I found this bedding set on Dunelm that I quite like, its has the neutral colours of white and grey with the pop of yellow in it. Im not sure what colour we are going for yet but I think yellow is really nice and will put you in a happy mood when you wake up, or at least a better mood at the 6am wake up call. 

Secondly is curtains, we don't actually have any in our bedroom, we do have slat blinds but that is all. The voile curtains range from Yorkshire Linen CO look perfect with many designs and colours to choose from so you can find some to match your decor, also they have some lovely bedding sets and more too. The curtains will help with privacy and also help set off the room and especially our room as we have white walls, so it will help the wall look less blank. 

Lastly is decor items, I love this star from Wilkinsons, I love the rustic look to it and stars mean a lot to Perry and I so it would be perfect for us. I also like this cushion, it looks like it could match the bedding, and the good thing about cushions or blankets is you can get a colour to help tie in the bedding and curtains to help bring that pop of colour into the room.

I cant wait to share with you what our bedroom will look like when it is finished, I keep dreaming of getting into bed with fresh new bedding which will make the bed more comfortable, we also need to get new pillows and a duvet. Finally having curtains so that our room will be dark of a night, this will make a huge difference and help our sleep the most and also to keep more warmth in over the winter, not only do we need curtains but so do the kids rooms, these will also ensure they get a good nights sleep and to keep the light out so they hopefully sleep in a bit too!? We can hope. I also cant wait to add a few touches to the room to make it more personal and cosy for us both. I will share another post soon of a before tour of our room and then another when our room is complete!
