One Room Challenge – Week 3

So here we are at week 3 in the ORC, I’m halfway there!!

Mattress update: We bought a bed last Friday!! I’m very relieved that we chose one.


It was really tough picking out a bed because whenever I make a purchase that requires me spending a lot of money, I have to do a lot of research. It seems like most people favour memory foam but Matt and I stayed with innerspring mattresses. If you are interested in more information check out the Better Sleep Council (sounds so proper!) or Good Housekeeping has a guide to help you. Finally, if you want to go crazy, check out Sleep Like The Dead… I read so many reviews across all the brands on this site and although it was very informative, I didn’t feel like I was getting anywhere. It doesn’t help that the companies change the names of the mattresses so some of the reviews could be based on discontinued models but are still part of the collection you could be looking at.  In the end, we went with the one that felt right for us, and was a decent price – we chose the Beautyrest Recharge Infinity Comfort-top. Done!:)

 Lighting Update

I still haven’t decided on table lamps. For the past year I have been looking out for lamps that I would like in our bedroom but I haven’t found anything. I thought I would find something at Home Sense but I usually see clear class bases and I would prefer something white. While looking online I found some options…

lamp options

Left – CB2 / Centre – West Elm / Right – Home Depot

I’m still looking and I think I will check out the antique shows near my house to see if I can find anything! Please let me know if you have any suggestions!
