We compiled a little list of our favourite functional bedroom things. Take a look. We think you might agree…

1. An Alarm Clock that Screams Style

When it comes to style nothing beats the elegant retro simplicity of Tivoli’s Model Three AM/FM Clock Radio with Blue Tooth. This sleek little number is the perfect blend of wake-up with design. Known for it’s room filling sound, Tivoli has created this design masterpiece that they haven’t changed the look of for nine years. The most recent change? They added blue tooth so now when your not listening to your favourite AM DJ, you can stream your own tunes through this eye pleasing sound box. We like this because the price (at $450 CAD) is a little steep for just a clock-radio.

2. The Perfect Lamps

Don’t be left in the dark. The Holtkötter wall or table lamps make great bedside lamps. Their perfection is in their features – their reach, adjustability and they are dimmable. They come in wall or table top placement and are really handsome too.

I am devoted to making people love living in their homes. I have done that with absolute joy for most of my life and as a career for the past 20 years or so... I am a homebody – I do not actively seek adventure but I have had adventures. I believe home is the most sacred and important place in the world. I say I grew up on a farm – but I doubt technically it would qualify as a farm. Five acres – one milk cow – one calf - we ate them when they grew up, lots of chickens and a few pigs – we ate them too… I was that kid who dragged rugs and furniture out to the orchard and set up outdoor rooms. It mixed my two favourite things – outside and comfortable furniture. My friends and I would sleep outside in my “rooms”. It was magical because my ceiling was full of stars. I have lived in small houses, big houses, basement suites, cottages, condos and apartments. I have built and I have renovated houses. For a short time in my young life I was without a home – this changed me. I have lived with pets, wanted and unwanted – rodents are unwanted… I have lived in a house richly full with the raising of my four children. I have had the tremendous joy of my children carrying my grandchildren into my home. I have had my home become an “empty nest” and my life shrunken and shattered with the loss of my beloved husband. Home and my people there have always been my comfort. It does not matter where home is, it only matters that you are in it and that you find comfort there and that is why I do what I do.
