Is it over yet?
People keep telling me how lovely our house renovations are looking (on social media)… But all I want to do is yell, “You’ve only seen the living room! The other 90% of the house are a total mess!”
Of course, I don’t do that – because 1) I’m not a total psycho, and 2) I sincerely appreciate anyone and everyone who takes the time to follow along with our renovations.
But the thought still remains…
I’m trying incredibly hard to remain optimistic, but let’s be honest. After 18 months of non-stop renovations, I’m ready to see it all finished and move on to bigger and better things (stay tuned!).
One room you haven’t seen yet, though, is our master bedroom.
So far, we’ve purchased a dresser and nightstands for the space – super exciting, let me tell you. But I am burnt out and not quire ready to dedicate the necessary time to a room of such importance. So it’s no surprise that I’ve put off decorating.
Then Safavieh reached out to me about sharing my experience with their Dream mattress collection. I thought, “Why not?” If I’ve learned anything during the One Room Challenge earlier this year, nothing is more motivating than the prospect of unveiling your bedroom to the world by way of the Internet.
Everyone knows that a good night’s sleep starts with the mattress. Even though ours was only four years old, it was too far on the firm side for my liking. As a light sleeper, I woke up with every twist, turn and grunt from the husband – and let’s just say he takes his time finding a comfortable sleeping position.
So, how is the Safavieh Dream collection different from the plethora of other mattress-in-a-box options on the market?
Well, let me count the ways.
For starters, the Safavieh Dream mattress is not a typical memory foam mattress like the others. Even thought the mattress arrives rolled up in a box, it’s designed with individual pocket-coils to fully support your body and relieve pressure points while you sleep.
Firm, however, doesn’t equate to uncomfortable. The “Serenity” mattress from the Safavieh Dream collection comes with a box top pad made of memory foam. It provides ample support whether you’re a back-, stomach-, or side-sleeper, but better yet: the memory foam in the top pad eliminates motion disturbance, meaning that when your husband is tossing and turning into the night, you’re blissfully unaware.
That alone was a huge, huge selling point for me.
The shopping experience on SafaviehMattress.com is a total breeze, too. Simply select from the 6-, 8-, 10-, or 11.5-inch mattress, choose your size (twin, full, queen, king) and in just a few days the mattress arrives to your doorstep in a vacuum-sealed bag, rolled up tightly in a box.
Another major plus: the Safavieh Dream collection works with any bed frame. You can layer it over an existing box spring like we did. It’s also perfect on its own atop platform beds. And, of course, slatted bed frames are another great choice for a Dream mattress, as it provides enough support, as well as allows the mattress to “breathe.”
To give you an idea of just how quickly you can put the mattress to use once it arrives, we’ve filmed a short video where I share my unboxing experience. The process was incredibly quick; once you cut open the sealed bag, the mattress uncoils in a matter of seconds!
Tune in next week as I continue working with Safavieh on another major update in the master bedroom! Any guesses as to what it may be?
Until then, hope you all have a Merry Christmas, and please take some time to sign off from social media and enjoy time with your loved ones!
