Bed makeover with Leesa - Bedroom makeover part one

The highlight of my day is getting into bed of an evening so when Leesa mattresses contacted me asking if I would like to review one of their mattresses of course I jumped at the chance!

Our old mattress was just a standard middle of the road mattress that we purchased when we moved into our new house back in January. We didn’t put much thought into buying it and kind of just went for a mid-price range thinking that it would be fine. As soon as we switched out this mattresses for our new Leesa king I noticed a difference in comfort even after just one night sleep!! It even made our 9 month old puppy stop for a few seconds to rest !!

The mattress 
The Leesa mattress is made up of three foam layers that adjust to your body for optimum support and comfort, the top layer contains cooling foam that allows air to circulate. Leesa are so confident in the comfort of their mattresses they allow you to try for 100 days before deciding if would like to keep or refund in full! What is also lovely about the brand is for every ten mattresses they sell they donate one to charities supporting the homeless as well as those seeking refuge from domestic abuse and human trafficking.


The Leesa arrives in a box! I was so shocked when it arrived and a king sized mattress was inside! This is super handy especially if you live in a flat or house with restricted access.

The makeover
As we are working our way around the house renovating each room the delivery of the Leesa came at the perfect time for our main bedroom makeover! With the comfort and luxury the Leesa mattress provides I wanted to create a hotel kind of feel with the rest of the room but on a budget of course!


I wanted the main focus of the room to be the bed and surrounding the bed creating a look of luxury. The bed frame was a super affordable basic wooden frame that I knew we could transform pretty easily. I wanted to create quite a dramatic headboard to sit against the rich navy blue paint I had chosen for a statement wall behind the bed – I searched Pinterest for inspiration and came up with the idea of a chevron type oversized wooden headboard which luckily my partner is a joiner so I set him to work! We stained the wood a dark brown to match in with the old beams within the room. We also upcycled some old bedside tables that George made for our bedroom in our last house by painting them in the same rich navy colour attaching them to the wall to give the appearance that they are floating. Dressed with cushions in the same colour ,  adding a pop of colour with the cute bee cushion. We found these super quirky flamingo lights removed the shades and added a large globe type bulb to add some personality and warmth to the bedside.


I am now in search of a throw for the end of the bed to add extra warmth and colour., then I can start dressing the room with prints and fabrics! 

I love the overall look of the bed and thanks to Leesa I think I will struggle to get up in the morning!

I am excited to share the rest of the room with you in another post! It will be full of DIYS!
