How to get a good night’s sleep in the Summer
When the nights are almost as warm as the long hazy days of summer, getting a good night’s sleep can prove tricky. Most of us toss and turn through a heatwave - here are some of our top tips for ensuring that elusive super slumber.
1 . Keep your bedroom dark if possible - it sounds logical but regulating the temperature of your room makes a big difference. Our range of dim- out and black out linings and fabrics can really help keep the heat of the sun out.
2. Bedlinen – your choice of bedlinen is critical – choose natural breathable fibres and fabrics that allow your skin to breathe whilst also providing a cool crisp surface. Here is our pick of our bestselling Biella bed linen > , Astor bed linen > and our organic Loweswater linen >
3. Try a cold water bottle! Yes, just as they are a source of comfort in the winter – they work brilliantly in the summer too. Fill one up with with cool iced water and move it around your pillow and mattress before you go to bed.
4. Scent your room with a cool, clear fragrance. WE love the Designers Guild 'waterfall' candle & diffuser > ‘ - the dewy fresh scent of crisp cool water flowing over lichen and moss. And with subtle woody notes of iris and patchouli, rose, sparkling grapefruit and ambergris - it’s crisp and comforting.
