A GOOD WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR BEDROOM DECOR

The bed is the focal point of your bedroom, so I always tell clients to choose bedding that speaks to their personality.  However, don’t forget about the mattress; it’s the foundation of the bed and investing in a quality mattress is essential to getting a good night’s sleep. There’s no better time to save on your sleep than during Mattress Firm’s Semiannual Sale. Through October 1st, you can save up to $400 on Mattress Firm’s top-rated mattresses like the Serta Alesbury Memory Foam Mattress and the Beautyrest Greenwood Firm Mattress. Me and my curves love the Alesbury because it offers pressure point relief to my back, hips and shoulders. Perfect for back and side sleepers. My kids love firm mattresses, which is why they like the Greenwood. With its dense inner coil and form layer technology it provides them with a great night’s sleep. Shop in store or online at MattressFirm.com to get the mattress of your dreams at a price you can love!
