6 Ways to Spruce Up Your Bedroom For Spring

With March nearly upon us we’ve been looking at ways we can get our home ready for Spring. One room that is often neglected is the main bedroom. Whilst other rooms are more public, the fact that this is probably not used much during the day, and is the least visited room when people come round, can mean it gets overlooked. But when you remember that we spend about one third of our lives asleep, it’s clear that our bedrooms also need a bit of thought and attention. So, here are 6 simple ways to spruce up your bedroom for spring and breathe new life into this important space in your home.

1.Capture the essence of Spring

Bring Nature indoors and give your bedroom an instant refresh. Forage for broken blossom branches, or pick some daffodils or snowdrops from the garden. Pots of white muscari look sweet on a nightstand, and pussy willow stems add some simple elegance.

What Was 2017 Like For You?

At this time of year our thoughts inevitably turn to the year that is ending. We think back to the events – good and bad – that stand out, and also remember the quieter moments that make up the everyday. This year has seen some troubling political developments and horrific events across the world, but there has also been much to be thankful for. On a smaller scale, we thought we would give you a round up of Linenbeauty’s 2017, and some ideas on how to make 2018 a great year.

So what happened at Linenbeauty in 2017?

A Simple Path launch

This year saw the launch of our new interview series, A Simple Path, in which we speak to creatives, entrepreneurs and social media influencers about what makes them tick. We are honoured to have featured some fantastic guests and learned so much about what inspires them, what slow living means to them, and how we can all strive to make our world a better place. If you missed any of the interviews, go here, here, or here for a taste of our slow living journey.

Slow Living Guide

Inspired by these interviews, and by the issues around authenticity and social media bubbles, we collected together the wisdom we have gleaned over the course of 2017 and created our own guide to slow living. In it we address ideas like: what is slow living, how realistic is it to try to live a simple life and how can we balance the practical requirements of everyday life with a need for something fulfilling and nurturing? If you haven’t read it already, you can find it here.

How to Keep Kids Happy on a Long Journey

With many of us heading off on vacations this month, we have a special secret to share with you. When planning for a two-day drive across Europe in an over-packed car with four children (aged 5-12) we devised a simple yet sanity-saving way to keep the kids happy on the long journey. And because we know how difficult travelling with kids can be, we thought we’d share it with you here.

Introducing: ‘The Bag Of Fun‘! (And you need to say this as if you are introducing a celebrity on Strictly Come Dancing or America’s Got Talent)

I live in rural Carmarthenshire, having returned to Wales in 2010 after a career in London, hoping to slow down and simplify life. For the most part I run a holiday let company called The Welsh House specialising in slow living escapism in unique Welsh cottages.
