MY HAPPY PLACE WITH COCOON BY SEALY + A GIVEAWAY

Tempur Sealy Mattress Prosecco & Plaid-15

PHOTOGRAPHY BY CRAIG MACKAY

Craig and I made a big move in January. We’ve been in our new place for about 2 and a half months and we’re still very much in the getting settled phase. One thing we hadn’t decided on yet was a new mattress. I find mattress shopping to be like going to the dentist, not enjoyable, so when we got the opportunity to try the new Cocoon by Sealy mattress I jumped at the chance.

Cocoon by Sealy is sold exclusively online at CocoonbySealy.com. It’s a new Tempur Sealy mattress brand that delivers a mattress-in-a-box right to your doorstep. We’ve always had Sealy mattresses so I was definitely intrigued by their new product. Even better, Cocoon by Sealy offers 100% Satisfaction guaranteed, 100 Night Trial, Free Shipping and a 10 year warranty. If you want to return it, there’s no fee, they’ll arrange to pick it up for you and donate it to a local agency.

The delivery process couldn’t have been easier. I knew when to expect it based on the tracking info I received, and the mattress was dropped off at our door. We’re still in the process of deciding where we want out master bedroom to be since we have two bedrooms in our new place. Bear with me since this room is basically empty. Making our bedroom our happy place had to start with finding the right mattress.

The unboxing process is super simple. Once you take the mattress out, you unroll it and within about 30 seconds the mattress takes shape. One thing I really liked was that there was no weird odor. I’ve order mattress toppers before and the smell was almost unbearable. This mattress was ready to be slept on!

 I couldn’t believe the quality and comfort of the mattress, I guess that’s what happens when you get a mattress from a company that’s been doing it for over 100 years. We decided to go with a softer King (you can choose from, Twin, Queen, King and California King). Did I mention they range in price from $549-$999, yes nothing over $1000! When deciding between softer or firmer it comes down to if you prefer to sleep “in” your bed (softer) or “on” your bed (firmer). As Craig and I both have back issues we both prefer a slightly softer feel.

We were both pleasantly surprised after the first night on our new mattress. We both woke up with less pain and had a more restful night sleep, less tossing and turning trying to get comfortable. It was soft, but not too soft. We’ve been sleeping on it for about a week now and haven’t looked back!  We are so excited to officially start making our bedroom our happy place. Stay tuned to see our finished bedroom makeover in a few weeks. I’m also so happy to be partnering with Cocoon by Sealy to give away a mattress to one lucky winner. You’ll be able to choose a soft or firm mattress in Twin, Queen or King. Enter below and good luck!

    It’s all about the atmosphere. I make my bedroom a happy place by adding my favorite scents and keeping the lighting relatively low. Sometimes I play soft music when I’m winding down for the day.

    Three of my four rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds share my bedroom – and bed. It’s always great to cuddle them and my Kyoko gets all playful and makes the funniest noises. The fourth one, my senior girl, Suki, sleeps on an orthopedic dog bed in my daughter’s room so she doesn’t get disturbed by the others.

    Make it my happy place with a special reading nook all for myself away from the family for some alone time. I also ensure that I have good lighting in there and try to have a fresh flower in a vase on my nightstand.

      BTW – I’ll be interested to hear how this mattress is for your back! My husband also has chronic back pain and it leads us to always put off buying a new mattress because we never know what will be good!

    i make my bed every morning with a heated blanket as the second layer and a big fluffy plush blanket on top. before i get in bed, i turn on the heated blanket and then it’s nice and cozy as i slide in. my current mattress is at least 7 years old, so it would be sooo nice to add a new one to make us even happier 🙂

    My bedroom is not currently my happy place, but its getting there! I just ripped up the old carpet last night (there is hardwood underneath!) and am getting ready to start painting the walls (Gray Wisp by Benjamin Moore). I know that once I get a fresh coat of paint on the walls, a cozy area rug, and hopefully a new Cocoon by Sealy mattress, my bedroom will be a much needed oasis.
