Metro Home: Is It Time To Rethink Your Bedroom?

Let’s begin with the most important piece of furniture in the bedroom. The bed. While some interior designers and misguided customers pick paint colors, matchy-matchy dressers, armoire and end tables, perhaps window treatments, etc., the first and utmost important thing in every bedroom is the bed.

Sensational Slumber

I chose the Helix bed this year because it is 100% US-made, hand-assembled and custom-built in their facilities throughout the country. Their expert team of engineers, designers, and craftsmen are focused on one thing — quality. The result is an expertly designed and meticulously assembled Helix Mattress that is made tailored to your needs. I simply say it makes my bedroom feel like I am staying at a 5-Star hotel with the highest level of hospitality. This bed also won points for their 100 Night Sleep Trial. It begins on the day that your Helix is delivered and you’ll have 100 nights to decide if this is the bed/mattress for you. It’s well worth a try before you settle on another brand.



Outstanding Bed. Affordable Pricing. Bamboo Sheets?

The Nolah Mattress is 100% temperature neutral. What this means is that it doesn’t contain chemicals. It offers a cooler sleep than any of the memory foam brands (with or without a cooling gel).

Now you can order a luxury mattress online (their website is below) and receive a mattress for 1/3 of the retail price and try it risk-free for 120 nights in the comfort of your home. I also recommend that you check out their selection of bases and bedding. The bases are made with North American spruce pine lumber.

Nolah sheets are 100% viscose from bamboo. Yes, you read correctly — bamboo. This simply means that they are made from extracting cellulose from wood pulp. The outcome is they are 300 count sateen weave that is super soft, breathable, lightweight, and very cool. These bright, white sets remind me of some of the best rests I’ve ever experienced in a 5-star hotel or resort. They are not only soft and comfortable but also durable. I never add bleach or put them in the dryer and they maintain their high quality like the first day that I received them. Shop online at their website below.



Many of us suffer from insomnia. Yours truly included. I have always suffered from this even as a child. I am, as they say, “A very light sleeper.” My body can be completely exhausted and spent while my brain refuses to shut off. I’ve tried sleeping pills, melatonin, warm milk, etc. Nothing works. It’s so frustrating to have to be in complete darkness and silence in order for me to experience R. E. M. I’ve recently tried Lord Jones Hemp-Derived CBD Gumdrops. They are considered a dietary supplement and contain 20mg CBD per piece. The flavors are passion fruit & raspberry. I did my research prior to testing one and I recommend you do the same before taking it. The ingredients will help you to relax so you can rest. I took a little bite and waited an hour, then ate the entire gumdrop. I was fine and I did sleep okay, however, I think I consumed too much for my system because I felt a little woozy for the following 48 hours. It was similar to the way I would feel after taking melatonin gummies. I recommend that you talk to your doctor first and start off slowly with just a nibble. Everybody is different and this just might be your salvation for well-needed slumber.
