How to Bring Simplicity into Your Bedroom

white cotton pajamas

After you come home from a long day at work, you probably want to just kick back and put your feet up. Creating a peaceful space in your home can actually allow you to do just that while clearing your mind of the hustle and bustle. This simple space is an easy way to make everything around you stop for a little while.

Many people choose to create their peaceful, quiet space within the walls of their bedroom because it’s the easiest place to feel relaxed and energized for the days ahead. There are some great things you can do to bring peace and simplicity into your bedroom, too.

First, probably the most important thing you can do is get rid of all the clutter in your space. It’s understandable that things add up over time and it’s common to just throw everything into the corner of your bedroom, but it’s not really great for your mind. Having that much clutter in one room can make it really hard to sleep at night. Take the time to go through all of the junk that has accumulated in your room and organize it. Throw out the things you no longer need, go through your closet and get rid of the clothes you haven’t worn in five years, and make this space look as empty as possible.

Creating a white color palette is another way to bring some serenity into the space. Now, this doesn’t just mean changing your bedding and painting the walls. It also includes what you’re going to be wearing to bed. White cotton pajamas, white nighties, and white cotton nightgowns are all perfect options. White cotton pajamas are breathable, soft, and luxurious. you can find white cotton pajamas in any type such as ladies nightgowns or Victorian style nightgowns. You’ll be able to sleep peacefully at night knowing that you’re wearing something that will keep you cool enough at night but also warm you up during the colder months. And if you buy percale, which is any cotton woven with a 200 thread count or more, it is more durable than a cotton satin of the same thread count. It’s also less likely to pill than cotton satin fabric because it has a denser weave.

Finally, making your bedroom a space that is reserved specifically for relaxing and sleeping is an easy way to bring some simplicity to your life. Ditch the TV, the stereo, and the electronic devices. Those things do not belong in your bedroom or any space that will be used for peace.

If you lead a busy life it’s so important to have a place where you can feel calm and relaxed. Making your bedroom that place can allow you to come home after a long day, take off your shoes, and get a good night’s sleep.

Why Choosing a Nightgown Is the Best Option for Your Sleep

nightgown

There’s nothing better than hopping into bed after a long day at work. It’s the time of your day where you get to relax and unwind.

During this time, you should be able to feel really comfortable, and that isn’t just a determining factor of how cozy your bed is. What you wear to sleep is extremely important, too. While many people choose pajama sets, old t-shirts, or nothing at all, modern nightgowns are a great choice for a few different reasons.

They’re Long-lasting
The best nightgowns are made from the finest cotton, which not only means that they’re good if you have allergies, but they will also last for many years to come. All of the times you throw your nightgown into the wash won’t impact the quality of your white cotton nightgown. You can sleep in the white nightie for a long time without having to worry about ruining them. It’ll definitely be the Victorian style nightgown that you can wear time and time again.

You’ll Sleep in Style
Not only are white cotton nighties great due to their longevity, they’re also very fashionable. Choose from classic Victorian inspired nightgowns with touches of embroidery and lace, or from modern, simple styles all in pure cotton. They’re extremely feminine, yet also offer a retro appeal. You can choose the length of the sleeve depending on your comfort level. You’ll have a choice of no sleeves, capped sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, or full sleeves. Hem lengths range from short to knee and ankle length. All of these options are extremely fashion forward. They’re also great for young women and teenagers. Also breast-feeding young mothers love the button-front styles – practical, pretty and natural.

They’re Comfortable
Above anything else, it’s important that you are comfortable in what you’re wearing to bed when you go to sleep. If you’re in something that’s too stiff or too tight, you’re probably not going to sleep very well that night. If you’re in something that’s so thick and heavy, you’re probably going to wake up in the middle of the night sweaty and uncomfortable. Since the nightgowns are made from a pure cotton material, they’re very breathable, flexible, and comfortable. They’re warm enough to wear in the winter, yet cool enough to wear in the summer.

It’s important for a person to get seven to nine hours of sleep per night in order for them to function properly. Without the right outfit, your sleep will be disrupted. The next time you head to bed, make sure you’re putting on your nightgown to ensure a night full of peaceful and comfortable sleep.

Why Cotton Is Still the Number One Fabric Choice

white cotton nightiesCotton has been the favored fabric choice for pretty much everything for a very long time. Cotton is still preferred by a huge number of people around the world.

In terms of style choices, 44% of Americans report that they have an overall “traditional” home, while 22% say they have a modern style, 13% say their home is eclectic, 10% call their style “country”, and 2% of Americans say their home has a global theme.

What does this mean for cotton? Cotton is a staple in the traditional home style. There is really not a more traditional fabric out there. But why do people still love cotton after all these years? Here’s why, according to LiveStrong.

Moisture Control
Cotton fabric is known for being breathable. Livestrong tells us that cotton “transmits moisture away from the body and is absorbent and removes liquid from the skin, like a towel.” This makes it the perfect material for apparel like white cotton nighties (or other ladies nightgowns) as well as sheets and other bedding. Sleeping in cotton is incredibly comfortable when it keeps you dry all night long.

Insulation
In the summertime, cotton actually protects skin from the heat. It also keeps us warm in the winter. How are these both possible? Cotton provides thermal insulation that allows the fabric to hold itself away from the skin and encourage more air flow. Sleepwear, like Victorian pajamas, is made out of cotton for this very reason.

Hypoallergenic
Cotton rarely causes allergic reactions on the skin from contact, unlike many other fabrics. Wearing cotton is usually recommended for people with skin allergies. This makes cotton a great material to use for things like boudoir pillow cases because it is so gentle on the skin.

Durability
According to LiveStrong, “cotton has a high tensile strength, making it strong, durable and less likely to rip or tear. It is 30 percent stronger when wet, withstanding many washings in hot water.” If you want your towels to last for years, make sure they are made of cotton.

Cotton is comfortable, practical, and lasts a long time. It is the perfect fabric to use when making items like white cotton nighties or pillowcases for your guests. No wonder it has been the number one choice of fabric for all of these years.

A Restful Place: Key Elements Of The Perfect Bed

As you strive to create a timeless bedroom where you feel right at home, it’s essential to get your bed in order. The bed is the center of the room, and it should be adorned as such. When you create the perfect bed, your bedroom becomes much more comfortable and inviting. While the ideal bed is unique to each person, there are some elements that you can add to form the baseline of perfection. As you design the resting place of your dreams, consider the following elements.

Sheets With A High Thread Count

Sheets need to be soft and comfortable. Thread count is the most important determinate of a sheet’s comfort. Thread count is basically the number of threads woven into one square inch of fabric, both horizontally (weft) and vertically (warp). Sheets with higher thread count will have more weft threads. High thread count sheets are certainly worth the investment.

Decorative Pillows

By selecting a beautiful array of decorative pillows, you can add charming touches to even the simplest beds. A variety of boudoir pillow covers can allow you to match your pillows to your decor as you see fit. When you set these pillows up each morning, your bedroom will look more complete.

Soft Blankets

A bed should be a comfortable nest of softness, and this all starts with finding the right blankets. With a full comforter and some decorative throw blankets and coverlets, you can make your bed much more snuggle-worthy.

A Pretty Nightstand

It’s not just what’s on your bed that makes a difference; the objects next to your bed also matter. Place a linen tissue box cover, a candle, some flowers, and other small elements on your nightstand to make it feel like your own.

Cozy New Year’s Resolutions For Better Sleep

Tossing and turning through the night? While seven to nine hours of sleep is the general recommendation, it can be difficult to get this much shuteye. And when you wake feeling unrested, you likely drag through your day. Well, 2018 is your year to make a change. By committing to getting more sleep, you can make small changes that will make a big difference. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Upgrade your pajamas
Your stuffy old pajamas may make you more uncomfortable than you realize. Upgrade to a white nightshirt or a Victorian style nightgown in a cotton fabric. This will help your skin breathe more comfortably and will make you feel more luxurious as you unwind.

Spray some lavender
Fill a spray bottle with lavender essential oil and spritz it onto your pillow each night. Just the scent of this flower has been found to calm tension and ease you into sleep.

Make your room more comfortable
Do your cluttered room and outdated decor make you anxious? Add some boudoir pillow cases, linen tissue box covers, and other delicate decor to make you more comfortable in this space. You will then be more inclined to feel restful.

Stick to a nighttime routine
Find a nighttime routine that works for you and commit to it. This may include reading, light stretching, a bubble bath, or any other technique to get you relaxed. Set a time each night to start winding down. After a bit, it will become a habit.

Ask your partner to take these steps with you
Committing to better sleep can be difficult when you and your partner are on completely different sleep schedules. Talk to your partner about syncing up so you can both get into bed at around the same time. This will also help keep you both accountable to your routine.

By making an effort to get better sleep, you can also become a better version of yourself. When you feel rested, you will walk through your day more awake, cheerful, and ready for anything that comes your way. From a white nightshirt to a bottle of lavender oil, you may need to try various techniques until you find a combination that works for you. Then you can finally crawl into bed and look forward to true rest.
