Spring Home Makeover with Sleepys
When we moved into our house ten years ago, I was on a decorating spree. I made sure everyone in the house had a place of their own that they loved… but neglected our bedroom. I had thrown up the curtains and wall décor from the old house and when our bed spread wore out I purchased the cheapest one in green I could get.
When Amy and I started planning our Spring Home Makeover, I instantly thought of the kids rooms. I am the type of person that always puts my family first. It finally sunk in that maybe it was time for me to think of myself (and my husband)… so I contacted Sleepys in hopes that they could help turn this bedroom into a new nest for us for our 24th wedding anniversary.
Sleepys was more than gracious in their response. Not only were they going to help with the comforter set, but they wanted to start at the top and work down. The first item they mentioned was their Serenity gel pillow set.
Sleep well with the comfy Serenity Gel Pillow 2 Pack. These hypoallergenic pillows offers excellent support for stomach, back, and side sleepers.
The Serenity Gel Pillow 2 Pack is filled with hypoallergenic micro gel polyester fibers for a soft and luxurious down-like sensation. Quilted and gusseted for additional loft and support, this pillow is suitable for all sleeping positions.
As you can see, these pillows are nice and thick. The cover fabric is 100% combed cotton sateen in 300 thread count with a 4” gusset and satin piping all around. We have been using these pillows for a few months now and I am happy to say they are still on our bed in a prominent position. These pillows form well to your head while still giving the support your neck needs. They also “goosh” well. I like to take the end of my pillow and fold it under to support the end more when I am laying on my side. The ends still have the same loft they did when they arrived even when I “goosh” it every night.
The next item Sleepys sent is also meant to help us have a better nights sleep. We were sent a set of 1000 thread count sheets made by Lancaster.
To be honest, I have never slept on any thread count higher than 300. I really did not realize there was such a huge difference in sheets.
These sheets feature:
When I pulled the sheets out to wash them and put them on the bed I could not believe how thick they were compared to my old set. They made the old ones feel like paper in comparison. Because of the quality I was worried that there might be special washing instructions. I was happy to see that they were machine wash cold/gentle cycle and tumble dry low. The sheets washed up well and were just as soft when they came out of the drier.
I have always had issues with the pockets on sheets sets popping off the corners when we slept. Making the bed I noticed that these pockets had more than enough room and after a month of using them I am happy to say they stayed on the mattress fabulously.
Slipping into bed that night I instantly realized why higher thread count sheets were a luxury. They were super soft and I instantly relaxed. No more scratchy feeling or that bally pilling that happens on the cheap sheets. I’ve washed these several times and they are the same now as the day I opened the package.
The last item Sleepys sent to make over our bedroom was the Prescott Comforter Super Pack.
This was the item I was most excited about because it was the most noticeable item in the makeover. I had all my fingers crossed that the photo was accurate on the website because the description mentioned sparkling gold which made me start to wonder if maybe it was the slick satin type of material that I was trying to avoid because of my cats (not declawed and they would have ruined it).
Enjoy the comfort and durability of the Prescott Comforter Super Pack. This comforter set in gold with flowers is perfect for any bedroom in your home.
This sparkling gold comforter features large chrysanthemum flowers in bronze and light beige colors. Extra thick cording and quality double stitching enhance durability.
I was over the moon excited when I pulled the pieces from the bag. This style was the complete opposite of anything I have ever picked for our bedroom. I am usually the pink/purple ultra girly floral with lace kind of girl. This time around I decided to try to pick a more rich and inviting color that was neither feminine nor masculine. I think the Prescott was a nice mix of the two!
It was hard to photograph the set because my room tends to be dark, but you can see in the photo above the flash picked up the gold tones nicely. The mix of the earth tones and gold as the accent gives the room a rich and warm feeling that I am thrilled with.
The king set comes with everything you need to achieve the look above. It includes 11 pieces: comforter, bed skirt, 2 standard shams, tri pillow pack, 3 Euro covers and 3 sham covers. I filled the smaller shams with pillows, but the larger three were perfectly square and needed a different fill. I decided to go the least expensive route and I purchased a box of poly fill. Stuffing them was easy and I tacked the back in 3 spots to keep the fill in. Call me cheap, but it worked and looks nice!
I have never owned a bedding set this nice before and I am beyond thrilled with the look, feel and quality of the fabric and the loft in the comforter. Although making the bed with a huge pile of pillows has taken a little getting used to, I love the look and the welcoming feel they bring to my bedroom.
My bedroom makeover was a huge success thanks to Sleepys, the mattress professionals. Yes! They carry much more than mattresses and all of the items sent for our makeover were exceptional quality. If you are in the market for bedding, I would recommend stopping by their site before purchasing. They carry just about everything you need to make over your bedroom… you might be surprised by what you find!
