Best of 09: The best change I made to the place I live

New Bedroom Curtains

This picture might seem familiar – I posted it a couple of weeks ago to show you some little improvements around our apartment. Last time, I was raving about our new curtains and how much they tie the bedroom together. I am still thrilled about them.

However, let the tiny white arrow direct your attention to the very best change I made to our apartment this year: our new (Tempurpedic memory foam) bed.

We had been sleeping on an Ikea sofa bed for the last 18 months and even though I personally can pretty much sleep on anything without a problem, J was complaining about back pain and restless sleep. We needed to invest into a good bed, a real bed; and I think we deserved it, too.
A good comfortable bed should be the most important investment when you move into a new place. There is nothing more important than a good night’s sleep and I am glad I finally shelled out the money for this. It’s been high time.

I might want to add: Even though I didn’t (think that I) sleep miserably on the sofa bed, I definitely sleep like a baby on the foam mattress. OMG! It’s like sleeping on clouds.

What was the best change to your place  this year?

  1. I agree on the mattress. It was our best investment this year too. We just love it! I sit on the couch and watch TV and my back hurts after an hour or so. Well, I go to bed and everything is gone. Yeah Foam!

  2. Yes, I slept over at a friends house on one of these matresses and it indeed is heavenly! Unfortunately I just now can’t justify the investment as we have a pretty nice bed as it is. But Tempurpedic rocks! And its Swedish!

  6. We moved into our place in January so I’d say the whole damn thing is the best thing! We’d done so much in year it’s hard to narrow it down to just one thing!

  9. Well, I just moved in with my sis last month so everything there is new to me! I love my bed too — it’s not all tempurpedic, but we do have a foam mattress pad that I swear is three feet thick. SO COMFY!

    I love my location too — 10 montiues from everywhere and in a really nice neighborhood, I’ve never lived in a neighborhood and love getting to walk around and see hosues and churches and stuff.

  10. I can see the picture, and have hunted everywhere for the tiny white arrow and can’t find it…it’s like an I Spy game!! Fun!!

    I agree – a bed is most important and a great investment. They last for decades, right??

    I just bought a new house this year. And then I spent way too much money trying to furnish it nicely. I think my favorite pieces are my oversized chair and ottomon – the first brand new piece of furniture I’ve ever bought just for me!!! I also really love my patio table and chairs.

    I also love your comforter and sheets! Great colors.

  11. What’s funny is I was looking at the pic before I started reading the post, and I was like, “Ooh! That bed looks so comfy!” :-) God bless Memory Foam!
