IMG_0383

As part of April’s DIY styling challenge, we’ve invited our good friend Janice  to share one of her master DIYs with us. Janice recently won our Bathroom challenge with her gorgeous DIY copper bath. Now she’s sharing her metallic-leafing tricks with the community. Over to you Janice!

Interview: Charlie Hunt of Soak&Sleep

Soak&Sleep - Girls bedlinen lifestyle

Since August on at{mine} is all about the wildness and general fabulousness of the kids rooms, we thought it would be the perfect time to take a step back to also think about some of the more practical aspects behind all of the wonderful contributions we’ve seen on #StyleAtMine.

The centre of every kids room is still the bed. And no matter if you are a colourful-prints or a monochrome-patterns person; when it comes to choosing the mattress, the pillow or the duvet, there are always so many questions that come to mind  – natural or synthetic? soft or firm? how many togs? what is a tog?!?

Thankfully one of our brilliant members is Soak&Sleep, an online retailer who makes (as its name might indicate!) bath and bed products. We caught up with founder Charlie Hunt to get some insider tips on choosing the right products, and talked about how they came to at{mine} and what they think of our community. Get the pen and paper ready, pronto!
