My NYC Bedroom, Part One: Cozy Quarters

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Leesa® kindly provided this mattress to me for review. All opinions are my own.

With my recent move I have been determined to invest wholeheartedly in my new space. Designing an apartment in New York City becomes a trade-off -- how do you hold back on spending too much for a rented space, while still making it the place you want to go home to? 

I've been especially focused on the space surrounding my bed because a good night's sleep makes all the difference. At least a third of our day is spent on sleep, and the quality of that time can determine how you spend the 16 hours following. Keeping that in mind, for this move I gave my bed a refresh with Leesa®, a mattress that ships free directly to your door with a design that ensures ultimate comfort.

To give a brief back story, my boyfriend had purchased his own Leesa® mattress months ago, and the both of us quickly become fans. Naturally when the opportunity arose to partner with them, I selected the same mattress and gave it two weeks of testing before writing this post. It is pretty safe to say I'll be keeping this mattress for years to come.

The Leesa® mattress arrives conveniently compressed in the box shown below and takes seconds to unfold completely. My parents were so entertained by this concept that they unpackaged the mattress with me, ha. At ten inches thick, its design is composed of three layers of premium foam all combined to keep you cool, cushioned, and supported.

As an added bonus of shopping with Leesa®, they allow for a 100-night sleep trial to help you determine whether this is the right mattress for you. They have both you and the overall community in mind, as one mattress is donated to a local homeless shelter for every ten sold. As a result you receive better sleep, and so does another in need.

I'm no interior designer, but I know that a comfortable space is a valuable one. The term home should bring about a sense of protection and warmth, whether it is your own house or just a temporary space like mine. I've paired my Leesa® mattress with throw pillows for a cozy resting corner, a DIY hanging night stand for a personal touch, and a reading lamp to make it the ultimate space for rejuvenation. I also believe that plants tie a room together, so you can bet I'll be adding even more with each new month.

This is just a slice of my newly designed bedroom, though in my opinion it is the most important corner. Stay tuned for a full tour of my room coming up soon -- but for now you'll find me cozied up on my Leesa® mattress getting comfortably re-energized for each new day.

Update: The Leesa Mattress is now available in over 88+ West Elm stores nationwide!
