Our Bedroom The Victorian House

Better Sleep (and a Giveaway!)

This post is sponsored by Sleep Number®.

I’m a more patient mom with enough sleep. A more creative designer, a better partner, a better everything. For me, getting enough rest means not pushing myself to stay up and do one more thing because if I can just get myself into bed at a reasonable time, I can usually fall asleep pretty easily. If you’re someone that has a harder time of it though (like my better half), Sleep Number has some great tips for better sleep.

Sleep Number Mattress

We’re loving our new mattress, and I’m pretty into checking the SleepIQ feedback that the bed provides. I knew from talking to Brandon that he doesn’t sleep as soundly as I do, but look at the difference in our data. And this is a big improvement for him! He used to get even less rest before.

Sleep Number SleepIQ data

Those numbers are from a few weeks ago, and it’s cool to see in the app how they’ve improved and changed over time. Brandon’s paying attention to his patterns and implementing some helpful sleep solutions, using that information to find better sleep.

I was thinking about it and I realized that we’re opposites with other furniture too. I love our teal couch in the living room because it’s deep and the cushions are so soft. He prefers much more firm seating, like our beige armchairs or the black and white sofa in the library. Having a mattress that adjusts on each side has been really great for us! I keep my side at 40 and he’s most comfortable at 65 — a big difference. It’s a fantastic bed for couples, and they can tailor the right solution for you in store.

    Rockaway, NJ! Our mattress is 10 years old and both my husband and I sleep horribly and wake up sore and tired. This mattress would solve so many of our issues.

    Bellevue, WA. I am a light sleeper and usually wake up tired. I’m sure it has nothing to do with having 2 young kids but I’m sure having a newer (current one is ~12 years old) and adjustable mattress would be helpful.

    Meridian Mall is our closest location.

    My husband and I are newlyweds after finding each other after failed marriages on match.com! We have so much in common and so many things are compatable…..with the exception of our sleep! I’m warm, he’s cold. I toss and then to settle, which keeps him up as our 20+ year mattress (from my first marriage! Esch!) practically bounces with each breath! What a lovely possibility to win such a prize.

    The closest store to me is on Polaris Pkwy in Columbus, OH. We’ve had our current mattress since before we were married and in September we celebrate 16 years of marriage. We know we need a new mattress, but we always manage to put off buying one because the kids need a new bed/braces/sports equipment/camp or the dishwasher/refrigerator breaks. There’s always a reason. A sleep number bed would be amazing! Thank you for the opportunity!

    I have seen the sleep number store in my local mall near Harrisburg, PA (Capital City Mall) and have always wanted to try it out. I feel like I can’t get comfortable so it takes me awhile to fall asleep. Then, I toss & turn and wake up with aching hips, feet and sometimes, a sore back. My husband and I can never agree on the temperature (he’s always hot, I’m always cold) so it sounds like a sleep number mattress would solve all of these issues!
