I’ve been doing a lot of mattress shopping recently. My husband and I are in desperate need of something new… our last one is 10 years old and a pillow top that is smushed and misshapen. To get to the middle of the bed feels like climbing Mt. Everest. Well in my search I decided to …

There are a huge range of styles of beds on the market from platform beds to ornate canopy beds, and it’s easy to be drawn to one type of bed for aesthetic reasons, but the quality of your sleep is of utmost importance. If you are looking to purchase a new bed and really love a particular style shown here today, remember that not all types of mattresses will work exclusively in all bed frames. As we explore five classic bed styles today, take note of the mattresses as well, especially if you are considering purchasing a new bed and mattress in the near future.

Spring it the time of year when so many of us get the nesting instinct to make our “nests” as comfy and beautiful as possible. There are many home improvement and DIY projects planned for spring summer around here, but my back is telling me that the bedroom may have to move up on the list! We purchased a new mattress in the fall, but it is just not working for me. If you have a great mattress to recommend, I would love to hear from you!
