Why you need a mattress topper

Normally when I stay away from home for the night I can never sleep, just being away from my own cosy bed is enough to make me fret all night. Recently I stayed at a London hotel and slept (like a log) in the most comfortable bed ever – and the secret? A feather mattress topper. I just sank into the bed and was so amazingly soft and sublime I fell asleep straight away. I will have to invest in one of these for myself, at the risk of making it even more difficult to leave my bed ever again!

Go for duck and feather down filling for the best luxury feel…

Creating a romantic, shabby chic bedroom

This look’s been around for a little while now and shows no sign of fading, with the new seasons at House of Fraser and Next picking up the trend. It’s a lovely way of creating a really soft feminine look for your bedroom. Based originally on vintage french furniture, and the faded grandeur of a french château, with the look epitomised by the classic painted bed with elaborate headboard.
