Spring Bedroom Makeover

UK bed and mattress manufacturer Silentnight is
marking March's National Bed Month by giving away an exclusive
consultation with Allyson Irvine, a leading interior designer and a
luxurious new bed from their exclusive Diamond range - worth a
combined total of £2,000.

The Spring Bedroom Makeover Challenge will engage with family,
lifestyle and design bloggers, who can enter by submitting an
article on the subject of how they'd like to give their bedroom a
'spring makeover'. Entrants are encouraged to be witty and
creative, talking about the things they love about their bedroom as
well as the things they'd like to change. Articles must be posted
on the entrant's personal blog and submitted to Silentnight via
or Twitter.

"National Bed Month runs throughout March and is there to remind
everyone about the importance of getting a better night's sleep and
the role your bedroom plays in achieving that," says Lisa Artis of
The Sleep Council. "A
quality night's sleep is key to maintaining our health and
wellbeing and after seven years, even a good quality bed, will have
been subjected to a lot of wear and tear - over 20,000 hours of it
- and won't be performing at anything like its best anymore. It's
all about optimising your perfect sleep environment."

The competition will be co-judged by acclaimed sleep therapist
Dr Nerina Ramlakhan - whose book 'Tired but Wired - The Essential
Toolkit for Overcoming Sleep Problems' was published in 2010. Dr
Ramlakhan has given several media interviews on the subject of
overcoming sleep problems, and is also Silentnight's official
'Sleep Expert'.

"Studies show that feeling safe and relaxed is one of the key
elements to healthy sleep, and the way a bedroom space is set out
can play an important role in this," explains Dr Ramlakhan. "As a
judge, I'm hoping to see some really interesting, creative entries
that reflect the many ways that people can shape a bedroom around
their own personalities."

The competition closes at midday on Thursday 4th April, with
Silentnight announcing the lucky winner shortly after. Full
