Hurrah for duvet days! This March, we’re celebrating National Bed Month – a time to assess your bed and make sure yours is doing everything possible to encourage a good night’s kip. And while you’re there, we reason that you might as well give your entire bedroom a makeover, ready to enjoy the (hopefully) warm summer nights.
