Bedding of Dreams . . . Pardon the Pun!

Planning ahead for moving Sam into his own room (and a cot) we are decorating what is currently our spare room upstairs. Our master bedroom is on the ground floor while his nursery is upstairs so we feel is only right that we move up into the spare room to be closer to him when the time comes.

Better for Sam (and much handier for me saving me from traipsing upstairs on the dummy run).

We started our Self build in Feb 2010 but still have a lot of ‘blank canvas’ rooms and concrete floors shall we say!

We are in no huge rush to finish them as it is nice to do one room at a time, plus the purse strings would not allow it! (Maternity pay is no joke and childcare in the near future is not going to make that any easier!)
So next on the list is finishing off the spare room, getting round to finishing Sam’s nursery and getting our main bathroom done.

We were kindly gifted the most gorgeous bedding set by one of my favourite designers and stores; Foxford Woollen Mills. 

I am yet to visit their woollen mills in Mayo but have visited their N.Ireland store at the Linen Green in Dungannon several times. (And I’ve never left empty handed! 🙈)

I was able to choose a set and I decided to go a little out of my comfort zone and go for colour! I also thought it would help lift my bare spare room.

I also had previously up-cycled a dressing table come chest of drawers we had been given and had gone bold (well for me) with Annie Sloan colour Old Violet so thought this would tie in well.



I love a good old before and after!


The bedding is 100% Cotton and 100% the best sleep you will have* (if your child free that is!)

I have previously bought a grey and white stripe Foxford bedding set for the single bed in Sam’s room (which you may have seen in my insta stories) and it has washed really well.

In fact the quality is so good you get that feeling of clean bedsheets every time you get in! So while I was having a browse on their website (HERE) I also fell in love with their new collection and just had to get the Toile Print in silver for our current bedroom.


We have moved Sam’s Jane Babyside crib away from the bed now and put the side up just to (hopefully!) ease the transition slowly as he moves further away from us and eventually into his own room. Also we are heading away next weekend to a wedding in England so it’s good for him to get used to four sides as he will be in a travel cot at his Nana’s.

I can’t wait for bed tonight; usually I get the fear because I don’t know what kind of a night I am going to have with Sam but I don’t think it will take me long to get back over to sleep getting into these crisp sheets!

Their slogan ‘feels like nothing else in the world’ is so on point!

Have a peek over on their website especially while they have 60% off selected bedding. Perfect for a wedding gift if you have lots of weddings coming up over the summer! Better yet treat yourself! (They currently have Free Shipping on orders of over €125.00). Their throws are such an investment, quality and style like that will never date!
