Metro Man & Metro Home

By Kim Taylor

November kicks off the holiday season, and whether you’re expecting guests or not, upgrading a few home essentials can do much to revitalize your surroundings. Here are some amazing items we recommend for sailing through the holidays and into the New Year with panache:

You need your beauty sleep, and you’ll want guests to be comfortable, too. Enter Novosbed. I defy you to find a more comfortable mattress than the ones at http://www.Novosbed.com. They’ll spoil you and your guests for any other mattresses, ever, period. They’re so incredibly comfortable that they seem to conform to your every move due to soft, cooling gel memory foam layers that come in various sizes and soft, medium and firm versions. If you must spend more time in bed during the cold weather season, let it be time well spent. Novosbed offers an array of plush mattresses that can be delivered free of charge to your door (and straight to your bedroom), and your old mattress can be carted off with the delivery too. Try the mattress for 60 to 120 nights, and if you’re not satisfied, receive a full refund, no questions asked. Plus Novosbed warrants the mattress for 25 years. How great is that? The quality of your sleep affects your entire next day, so wake up ready to move mountains — but be forwarned: you probably won’t want to get out of bed.

Sure Fit refreshes nearly everything with a tremendously wide and stylish array of sofa and chair covers, pillows, pet protectors, and porch furniture coverings. As you’ll see at http://www.Surefit.com, you can cover dining chairs at holiday parties, Thanksgiving dinner and winter weddings in elegant styles, and redecorate sofas and arm chairs in any practically any color or pattern imaginable. Sure Fit also offers pillows to match your new coverings (we’re partial to the all cotton ones), as well as porch furniture coverings for warm-weather getaway homes. If there’s something you want covered, head to Surefit.com, pick your favorite pattern, have it delivered, and then toast yourself for being so clever.

Recast the scenery in your bedroom or guest room with a new comforter and you’ll feel as though you have a clean slate for winter lounging. The affordable, all-cotton and down comforters at http://www.QVC.com are sure to keep you toasty and comfortable on many a romantic winter’s eve, and they look phenomenal too. Choose a reversible one – like the Northern Lights Tonal Damask Down Comforter – for doubled decorating options. Have it delivered and savor those sweet dreams.

Belt your heart out to your favorite songs with Shower Tunes, the shower curtain with built-in waterproof speakers and a waterproof device pocket for watching shows, listening to music or talking on the phone. Kick back in your bubble-filled bathtub and watch something on Netflix, or shower to You Tube favorites – whatever you please. Find it at http://www.shower-tunes.com, and keep it in mind for unique holiday gifts. This is an invention whose time has definitely come.

Sin In Linen is an outstanding source for unique shower curtains, offering black & white striped Big Tent versions, as well as patterns featuring skulls, The Misfits, Bettie Page, a carousel pinup, a Day of the Dead graphic, a circus side show, sailor, geisha moon, mermaid, pirate ship and much more. This is a delightfully super funky purveyor of curtains, linens and other distinctive home products. Shop the offerings at http://www.sininlinen.com, and pick up some gifts for creative friends and relatives.

From the bedroom to the bathroom to the living room, you’ll be ready for anything this season, so start planning your epic soirees.
