Brooklyn Summer Bed Linen

Spring is the perfect time to enjoy new beginnings. It gives the best avenue for you to participate in the rebirth of the Earth. It’s as if everything that has been happening for the past year is being cleansed, and the whole world is being given a fresh new start. New flowers blossom to reinvigorate nature’s colours, and the trees all grow a little greener. The environment tries to pick itself up from any issues in the past, and no matter how dark and dusty a place usually is, spring gives it that one little annual boost.

Invite spring into your home sweet home

Don’t leave spring outside where it can only be enjoyed far from home. Invite it into your own home, so that the freshness you can expect from outside would enter your house, too. Let the cleanliness reflect within your home so that you can enjoy your very own new beginning. Imitate the events outside your door and copy them within your walls to let yourself enjoy the spring brightness even within the coolness and comfort of your very own home.

Creating a blank slate to work with

Before buying any products, your first step would be to clear out your old linen. If you have any bedding and sheets that are close to falling apart, get rid of them and try to find new sheets. Look for sheets, bedding, pillowcases and throws that will represent the brightness of spring and the freshness of new beginnings. This is your opportunity to splurge on new things: if you want some new furnishings, buy them and enjoy their novelty.

The Fine Cotton Company’s top buys to make your home just like spring

Make sure that all of your buys are of light, airy colours. Don’t use really deep colours that may dampen the light feeling of spring. Put enough colour to make the room interesting but not too much to make it overwhelming.

Crisp white bed linen, colourful throws, plush new towels and a light bathrobe can be the first items to build into your new furnishings.

Spring is all about new days. You have every opportunity now to create a whole new room, to make something different from what you had last year. Take this chance to give your room a makeover from something old and reminiscent of last year to something exciting and ready for this year.

Find the perfect match for spring with our collection at The Fine Cotton Company.

Bedroom Colours: How Do You Sleep?

Room colour does influence your mood and set the tone for your living environment. Therefore it’s important to choose a bedroom décor that will help you relax and induce sleep.

Creativity

Orange expands your thinking. It reduces self-consciousness and allows you to express yourself with confidence. Use it in your home when you want to feel younger. It is the colour of laughter and celebration.

Order

Deep blue encourages efficiency. It will purify your thinking, so you can cut through the clutter and discover what is most important in your life. It helps you integrate the big picture with the little picture. Wear dark blue when you need to make a decision.

Calm

Blue gives a sense of peace. It dissolves tension and promotes tranquillity. Light blue especially brings ease into the home and harmony into relationships. Wearing or surrounding yourself with it helps calm aggressive tendencies and eliminates discord. Those with bedrooms this colour tend to get the best rest – nearly eight hours a night – and wake feeling happy and positive.

Energy

Bright red will fortify you. It is a stimulant. It promotes courage and fearlessness. Use this color when you want to increase self-confidence. But too much red can make you feel overly excited or agitated. A little goes a long way.

Concentration

Yellow increases your focus. It is known for enhancing intelligence and mental agility. It can help stimulate conversation and clarify thoughts. People sleeping in rooms decorated in calm colours, such as yellow, blue or green, received the best night’s sleep.

Health

Green is also the colour of healing. It represents nourishment and helps steady the body, balancing your equilibrium and encouraging stability. Use it to rejuvenate yourself, to promote physical and emotional well-being. Green and yellow are also winners, with those choosing these colours clocking up roughly seven hours and 40 minutes of sleep.

Sensuality

Deep red inspires passion. It helps awaken the libido. Use it to move you through inhibitions and emotional blocks that prevent you from expressing yourself. It will remind you to live life fully and to love your body. Try a deep red…ottoman, lampshade, accent chair.

Rest

Aqua inspires trust. This is the colour to use when you need to relax. Wear or surround yourself with it if you have difficulty sleeping, dreaming, or meditating.

Create a Cosy Bedroom This Winter

There’s nothing like feeling tucked up in the warm when it’s cold and wet outside and a few luxurious touches can quickly turn your bedroom into a warm, cosy sanctuary.

Now that the clocks have gone back and the nights are drawing in it’s the perfect time to give your bedroom a winter makeover.

Cosy seasonal interiors bring to mind images of roaring log fires and while not all of us are lucky enough to have a working fireplace in our bedrooms, there are other ways to achieve a similar effect.

Try placing candles around the room on all the surfaces, at different heights, and watch as the lights flicker and the room glows. Our porcelain tealight holders have wintry and festive cut-out shapes to send light around your room, or try the tangled ceramic holders with heart, star and butterfly shapes for year-round use.

A set of fresh white organic cotton sheets can make your bed look more inviting than ever – you’ll just have to try to resist until bedtime. A snug new snow goose luxury down 13.5 tog duvet combined with a luxury mattress enhancer will make sure your bed is warm and cosy, no matter how far the temperature plunges.

Once the bed linen is in place, add a touch of luxury with a throw or a blanket – and nothing is softer than our lambswool angora blankets, which come in a range of colours. Go for winter white if you want to continue the crisp, clean effect from the bedding, or pick a soft shade such as mink or pale latte to add a touch of colour with a high class finish.

For those extra cold nights – or just because it’s a little treat – why not get a fabulously soft lamb’s wool hot water bottle? Our range of colours includes dove grey and biscuit, which will coordinate perfectly with your lambswool angora blanket. Tuck the hot water bottle under your duvet a short while before you get into bed to warm the cotton through, or place it under your pyjamas or nightdress so you’re warm as soon as you get into bed.

No matter what the size or design of your bedroom, a few simple touches like these can help you to make it a real haven from the elements so you always have somewhere to rest and relax, ready to face whatever the winter throws at you.

Ten Tips for The Perfect Night’s Sleep

Ten Tips For the Perfect Sleep

Routine – a regular routine educates your body to sleep far better.  Try going to bed, sleeping and getting up at about the same time, every day – even weekends!

Exercise can make a bigger improvement to sleep than any other natural treatment – studies have shown that people who exercise regularly sleep better.

Relax your mind and body before going to bed – maybe have a warm (not too hot) bath, listen to some quiet music or a relaxation tape or do some yoga.  Studies show that combining pure essential oils with a calming routine works best for deep sleep.

Remove anything from your bedroom than can prevent or disrupt sleep.  Your brain needs to relax so don’t have mobile phones, computers or TV’s in your bedroom

Cut down on stimulants such as caffeine and try a milky drink or night time herbal tea instead.

Create a restful sleeping environment by keeping your bedroom for relaxation and sleep. Keep it at a comfortable temperature and it helps for the bedroom to be as quiet and dark as possible

Clear the clutter from your bedroom

Have a comfortable bed – if your bed is too small, too soft or hard, or the mattress is lumpy it may difficult to get deep, restful sleep. It could be worth investing in a new bed or a new mattress topper to add layers of comfort to your bed.

Choose your bedding carefully to ensure the right temperature – make sure you have the correct tog duvet for the time of year and organic cotton sheets. If you are too warm in bed it can lead to a disrupted night’s sleep.

While you sleep your body works hard to regulate your temperature so by using cool, breathable organic cotton bed linen which is effective in absorbing moisture and perspiration, it becomes much easier.

Change your bed linen regularly (at least once a week) – Any excess dust can irritate the airways which may disrupt sleep.

Spritz your pillow with lavender mist made from pure essential oils, close your eyes and drift off to sleep.

Sweet Dreams!
