Sleep Sanctuary 101

Sleep Sanctuary 101

I started a Facebook Live Challenge for myself this week. I am doing 30 days of Facebook Live Streams! I only do my own challenges so please don't tag me to "Post Your Pet For 7 Days Challenge" - it's not gonna' happen. I took the summer off to spend with my kids and thought that doing a daily Facebook Live Stream would be fun to get back in the swing of things and it totally has been! I've been getting a lot of great feedback and questions! Here are some of the questions I got this week about bedrooms...

What are 3 things you need in your bedroom to promote peaceful sleep?

  1. A quality mattress is numero uno! It may seem Captain Obvious but nothing beats a good quality mattress.

  2. Quality natural fiber sheets. Quality sheets get better with each washing. Low quality sheets will pill and scratch after just a few washings.

  3. Window coverings that control light filtration (and temperature). If you are sensitive to light, use a window covering with a black out liner.

What are the best plants for the bedroom?

  1. The maiden hair fern is the diva of all house plants and has a strong feminine energy.

  2. String of Pearls is a gorgeous delicate succulent and also very feminine.

  3. Asparagus Fern and Donkey Tail are both great for bedrooms and have a strong masculine energy to them. It's all about the yin and yang.

What are your go-to places to buy sheets?

  1. The Company Store

  2. Pine Cone Hill

  3. Pottery Barn

  4. Garnet Hill

  5. LL Bean

Pillow Talk

What about pillows?

A bad pillow will keep you tossing and turning all night so I say invest in a good pillow that matches your sleep pattern. Here are just a few to choose from.

  1. I'm a stomach sleeper so I suggest: Primaloft Deluxe Pillow (

  2. Side sleepers: Beyond Down Side Sleeper Pillow (

  3. Back sleepers: Sealy Posturepedic Posture Fit Back Sleeper Pillow (

  4. Allergies: Both of my kids have allergies so I also use a hypoallergenic pillow protector: Luna Premium Hypoallergenic Bed Bug Proof Zippered Waterproof Pillow Protector (
