Talk us through your bedroom style… Simple but modern. I have lots of statement pieces and plants. The colour scheme is white, grey, black and crushed velvet.

What’s your bedtime routine/ ritual? Have a hot bubble bath with essential oils, moisturise once out of the bath and put on fresh, clean pyjamas. Once in bed, light a candle and wind down with music or something on Netflix. 

What’s the last thing you do before you go to sleep? Check social media and then set an alarm for the morning.

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? Open my curtains and make my bed.

Night owl or early riser? Definitely a night owl!

Top tip for a good nights sleep? Hot bath and warm drink before bed, read a book and stay off your phone.

What’s your go-to bedtime look? Hair up in a pineapple and a cleansed and moisturised face with comfy pyjamas.

Name: Felicity / @felicityhayward

Age: 30

Location: London

Sleeping position: On my side, cuddling pillows.

Talk us through your bedroom style… It’s very Art Deco! I love mustards, salmons and pink with gold and matte grey. I’m all about rich textures.

What’s your bedtime routine/ ritual? I have these essential oils from my friend which I add to my salt lamp it’s a blend of lemongrass, sweet orange and lavender to calm myself before I sleep. And I always have my crystals with me: smokey quartz, amethyst, rose quartz and tigers eye.

What’s the last thing you do before you go to sleep? Send a barrage of text messages to people I love.

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? I’m afraid it’s checking my phone, a routine I want to get out of.

Are you a dreamer? If yes, what’s your most memorable dream? Yes, nearly every night. My most memorable dream was I was an ice cream lady and moved to the California desert to sell pastel coloured ice creams to cowboys out of a gold van. I actually think this could become a reality one day!

Night owl or early riser? Absolute night owl.

Top tip for a good nights sleep? Leave your phone in another room charging - not that I ever do, I must check mine a dozen times before I sleep. But it’s not good for your mind.

What’s your go-to bedtime look? I sleep naked a lot of the time with a honey milk face mask.

Name: Kavita

Age: 26

Location: London

Sleeping position: On my left side, curled up.

Talk us through your bedroom style… I absolutely love plants - there’s an array of them in my room! My decor is fairly minimal, so for me, a statement duvet is one of my favourites to be the focal part of the room!

What’s your bedtime routine/ ritual? I usually workout in the evenings, so I get home around 8pm. Then I’ll have a bath and wind down with a book in bed around 9:30pm, cup of tea in hand, whilst my partner plays the PS4!

What’s the last thing you do before you go to sleep? Check I've set my alarm and that my phone is plugged in!

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? Check my phone to see if I can snooze, or if I really have to wake up! They browse Instagram for ten minutes before trying to get up. 

Are you a dreamer? If yes, what’s your most memorable dream? YES, I dream constantly! I had one recently where I went on a trip with two of my blog friends, then I told her my sister was being mean to me and bullying me and she didn’t believe me. Not sure what it means - but my sister definitely doesn’t bully me!

Night owl or early riser? Night owl mostly, early riser when I need to be!

Top tip for a good nights sleep? I love lavender - I have pillow sprays and moisturisers to make me sleepy. And NO CAFFEINE AFTER 6PM!

What’s your go-to bedtime look? I sleep in a big t shirt with my hair down - although sometimes I forget and it’s in a bun and I wake up with a very difficult hair situation the next day!

Name: Matt

Age: 30

Location: London

Sleeping position: Lying on my front

Talk us through your bedroom style/decor… I try to keep my bedroom a calm space, so it’s reasonably minimal with everything in place and lots of neutral tones. Lighting is key, so I have a couple of lamps to ensure there’s some ambient light.

What’s your bedtime routine/ ritual? My actual ‘bedtime’ can drastically differ from day to day depending on my schedule as I rehearse a couple nights a week. The most ritualistic element to my bedtime is ensuring I’ve washed my face, brushed my teeth and probably had some soothing music on in the background.

What’s the last thing you do before you go to sleep? Put my phone on charge.

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? Reach for a glass of water, swiftly followed by making a cup of Yorkshire tea.

What’s your most memorable dream? I don’t often remember my dreams, but very recently I had one where I was driving through the mountains, trying desperately not to drive off the edge. I’m sure this might mean something or perhaps I ate something funny before I went to bed

Night owl or early riser? Early riser!

Top tip for a good sleep? Limit your screen time an hour before bed, reading always works for me too.

What’s your go-to bedtime look? Boxers and fresh sheets.

I couldn’t go to bed without…. Knowing the door is locked.

Get the look…

Stay tuned for part two!
