How to Achieve a Relaxing Bedroom

I've got some pretty fun information for you all today! We have partnered with Temper Sealy to try out their brand new mattress-in-a-box, the Cocoon by Sealy. We only partner with companies we believe in and endorse products we truly love! And on Thursday's post we'll be hosting a giveaway for one of these amazing mattresses! So don't miss out on that!

Since a comfortable mattress is essential to making your bedroom your happy place, I thought I'd also give some thoughts on additional steps that create a restful and relaxing bedroom. 

But first...let me show you how the Cocoon by Sealy mattress arrived. 

My husband and I were thoroughly confused when this showed up on our doorstep. How on earth is a mattress in that box!?

Oooohhh....that's how!  

I'm not sure I was supposed to let little feet run all over it, but the instructions didn't say NOT to do that so...

As soon as I opened the plastic, poof...that thin little pad turned into this beautiful soft mattress! Hubby got to try it out first. He gave me a grin and said, "yeah that's pretty comfortable". That surprised me since he had his doubts in the beginning. The nice thing is, they offer a 100 night trial and if you're not 100% satisfied, they'll come pick up the mattress (you don't have to put it back in the box!) and donate it to a local agency. That's pretty cool. 

We chose the "firm" mattress...hubby and I are believers in a good, firm mattress! 

It was so nice and light to carry up our stairway and around the corners to our bedroom. When my husband got into bed that night I couldn't believe it...I didn't feel a thing! That was such a strange sensation...or I guess non-sensation. We giggled quite a bit and the next day, hubby was raving about that mattress! 

We live a pretty stressful life right now....3 little kids still at home full-time, running 2 businesses out of our home and hubby still working a full-time job. It's so very important to indulge in every opportunity to relax. So having a clean bedroom is step one to get to that sweet point of calm and relaxation. 

Step two is having a beautiful environment. Fresh flowers always do the trick! But maybe you need to rearrange the bedroom so that your bed is your focal point as soon as you walk in the door. You don't even need a headboard...mattresses and bedding is enough to make a gorgeous centerpiece in your haven. 

Take away the clutter. Maybe this should be a whole step to itself but imagine going into a room with nothing in it but a bed full of fluffy pillows. I can't imagine anything more relaxing than that. 

But the final step would be to have a comfortable bed. Soft sheets, fluffy pillows, and a comfortable mattress! That's pretty much my recipe for a good night's rest. And this new Cocoon by Sealy mattress definitely nails it with comfort, and I hope you'll all enter to win one in the upcoming post.

  1. Vanessa, this totally motivates me to look at our bedroom differently. I love design and feel our room IS beautiful, but I'm craving simple lately! Thanks! ~Kim @ IrishmanAcres

  2. I NEED to know where those curtains are from! ❤️��

  3. The thing that always bogs me down when I read posts like this is, if you use a cocoon mattress--and it looks wonderful, don't get me wrong!--how do you dispose of your old one? If you buy a regular mattress and box spring, the stores here will remove the ones you're replacing when the new set is delivered.

  4. That mattress is so cool! Definitely makes delivery easy :)
    I'm all about creating a quiet sanctuary in our bedroom. You have done such a wonderful job making this room feel peaceful and relaxing!

  5. Yep, I definitely need to work on making my bedroom more relaxing, thanks for the inspiration!

  6. I LOVE your headboard! It's simply beautiful! would you mind sharing where you purchased it?

  7. I just stumbled upon your blog and really love your wooden headboard. Would you mind sharing where I could find it?
