Revealed: Six houseplants to boost your mood this winter

A new report by Wren Kitchens reveals the best houseplants to boost your mood this winter
Indoor plants can reduce 87% of toxins in the air, reduce blood pressure and make you feel calmer

It’s a well-known fact that spending time in nature is good for your wellbeing, so what better way to boost your mood than to bring nature inside. With search volumes for “house plants delivered” increasing by 400%, and “buy houseplants online” by 200% since lockdown, Wren Kitchens have revealed the best houseplants to have in your home to help boost your mood:

Aloe vera
The gel from aloe vera can help to soothe acne, burns and dry skin, helping you both physically and mentally. To allow your aloe vera plant to thrive, place it in bright but indirect sunlight, and let it dry in between watering.

Lavender
Place your lavender plant in the bedroom, and the scent will help to reduce your stress levels, enabling you to sleep better. To let it grow, water it regularly and leave it in a place that gets a lot of light.

Snake plant
Had issues in the past with keeping plants alive? Try a snake plant – they need minimal care, but can really help to improve your wellbeing as they add moisture to the air and release oxygen. They’re particularly ideal for people who suffer from allergies – and interestingly, they were the most Googled plant in lockdown!

Peace lily
Peace lilies are great houseplants to have. Not only do they soak up mould spores in the air; they also absorb their water before releasing it back into their environment – so place your peace lily in a dry room.

Monstera plant
You’ve likely seen the Monstera (also referred to as a Swiss cheese plant) clogging up your Insta feed, but they can actually boost your mood. They purify the air, making your home healthier – plus, you can grow new plants from their cuttings.

English ivy
Like peace lilies, English ivy absorbs mould in the air, helping to purify your home; and it also has properties that help you to stop being restless, meaning you can enjoy a better night’s sleep.

THE FRENCH BEDROOM COMPANY CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE 2020

With the evenings getting progressively darker, weather getting colder and selection boxes filling the supermarkets, it can only mean the one thing, Christmas is coming! And with that it’s the time for everyone to dust off their favourite embarrassing jumpers, indulge in a hot chocolate (or mulled wine) and enjoy that quality family time, which is so important in the current climate, the only stress being what to buy your loved ones to show how much you care.

Luxury home and interior Specialists at The French Bedroom Company have selected their favourite picks based on popularity and new in trends to help guide your gift giving this Christmas. The items range from luxury candles to ruffled cushions to home decorations, for all types of budgets, be it a yearly present for a friend or a larger gift to show appreciation for a sibling.

California Springs Tufted White Cushion – £40

The pattern of the California Springs Tufted White Cushion almost resembles a snowflake pattern, giving it a wintery feel. It is adorned with soft chenille that will appeal to any retro-lover at heart. Designed in Australia the California Springs Cushion is 100% cotton and washes beautifully, becoming softer with each wash and giving a more comfortable feel.

Abstract Face Cotton Rug – £75

This chenille rug with an abstract Picasso-esque line drawing will turn floors into a work of art. The black drawing is created from woven tufts, rather than simply being printed onto the rug, and the neutral background ensures it won’t detract from other treasures in the room. Choosing to place it amongst strong colours like black or against neutral and natural tones will give a more artisan and bohemian aesthetic.

Oli Ruffle Pink Linen Cushion – £40

These adorable cushions make a lovely addition to a sofa or armchair with their delicate ruffled edge. They will also bring a touch of romance to a bedroom and coordinate perfectly with French furniture around the home. The Oli Ruffle Cushions layer and style perfectly with pure linen bed sheets which have maintained popularity through 2020 and into next year.

Casafina Luxury Sandalwood Candle – £24

For men who appreciate a rich decadent smell, this gently masculine fragrance will enhance a home with notes of sandalwood and patchouli. The silver candle is presented in a gift box printed with a map of London and sealed with a black grosgrain ribbon, making it the ideal gift for the smart and dapper men in your life.

Melinoe Greek Goddess Bookends – £55

Split into half, pure black and gentle white, these bookends will make a beautiful statement in a home. They are a stylish and thoroughly modern interpretation of Melinoe, the Greek goddess of ghosts who wandered the earth each night with a train of ghosts. These bookends couple well with classical or antique books to emulate the style, or with more modern books to suit the contemporary black and white colours. The ideal gift for those who love art history or Greek mythology.

Blooms at Midnight Bed Linen Set – From £30

Bring the outside in while keeping the cold out with these bold and beautiful midnight blooms for the midnight hour. This eye-catching botanical bed linen is adorned with a large-scale painterly print of beautiful blooms. Winter florals will always add visual warmth and texture to your bedroom, and they go flawlessly with the addition of these rich, painterly botanicals. The overall colour palette combines jewel tones of opulent green, blue and dark coral reds for a deep and romantic vibe with the deep green reverse, making this ideal for that vibrant person in your life.

Portrait of Chimpspeare Printed Canvas – £225

An eccentric creation by Ant Fox, this portrait is exclusively available at The French Bedroom Company. Executed in the distinctive style of the Dutch Golden Age of painting, this piece toys with the ‘Infinite Monkey Theorem’ and that a monkey with a typewriter will almost certainly reproduce the complete works of William Shakespeare if given enough time. Chimpspeare proves this correct and becomes the Monkey Shakespeare writing his masterpieces. The frame is skilfully printed onto the canvas, meaning this wall art is ready to be hung and adored. Gift this to someone who likes powerful art in their home and would like to have this as a talking point.

Festoon French Urn – £99

Classic and classy, and true pared-back French elegance, this gorgeous French urn ticks all the design boxes. This is an exceptionally versatile antique-style French urn for all times of year. Style it with a festoon of cascading fresh blooms, use as a wine cooler for an outdoor summer party, or make it a lavish and over-the-top Grecian style fruit bowl dripping with deep red grapes and summer fruits. The only certainty is this will be the talking point of conversation.

Cherish Soft Pink Faux Fur Throw – £95

Made from the softest faux fur, this is the ideal winter companion to keep you feeling warm and toasty. This throw is a beautiful shade of pale rose pink, with white-tipped super-soft faux fur. The reverse faux suede provides a great solution so that it won’t slide onto the floor. Best placed on a sofa or bed, pair with cushions on top of a white French bed for a quintessentially romantic look or against natural wood ranges for a classic styling.

Hubert Hippo Gold Table Lamp – £75

Glorious, curious and quirky, this side lamp draws in the attention of the whole room, a standout product that makes everyone smile. Made from cast poly-resin, this hippo has wonderful detail on his toes, teeth and tail. He has felt protector pads under his feet, and a gold fabric cord flex and gold switch. Light shines out of his mouth between his teeth – of course, where else?! The name Hubert means bright, shining intellect so provide more wisdom to a home this Christmas with Hubert the intellectual hippo.

own popular Artisan coffee shops in East Sheen, Ealing, Putney and Stamford Brook, London. They perfectly blend a relaxed Aussie charm in each
shop with a commitment and passion for teaching people how to brew
speciality coffee of the highest quality.
They care deeply about the sustainability of their coffee and even use
beans grown in the same place where they started their journey together
in Uganda. Since then, Edwin and Magda have obsessed over carefully se-
lecting speciality-grade beans and perfecting the science behind making
delicious coffee.
Their success has also motivated them to roast their own coffee, which
led to the birth of the Curious Roo coffee roastery in Chiswick, London. A
small but mighty roastery, they now distribute varieties such as their superb Barn Door Blend to major cafes nationwide.
The Artisan Coffee School uses Curious Roo coffee for each of its training
courses so that participants may perfect their coffee-making skills with
the best beans in the business.

HOT WATER TAP SALES SURGE AS BRITS DRINK

EXTRA 111,972,000 CUPS OF TEA A DAY IN

LOCKDOWN


Making a brew has long been a British remedy for keeping calm and carrying on in times of crisis and that’s exactly what the nation did during the spring lockdown, enjoying an extra two cups of tea a day on average*, leading to a marked increase in sales of Abode steaming hot water taps.

Google searches of hot taps have increased by 25% this year, while Abode Pronteau sales were up by 13% in July and August, compared to the same period last year.

This is a trend that Abode predicts will continue to grow, despite daily routines being re-established post-lockdown, as more people continue to work from home.

“Lots of consumers have been investing in their homes since the beginning of the pandemic, and hot water taps are something of a must-have for the kitchen,” comments Leanne Adamson, Marketing Manager for Abode.

“This is an appliance that has lots of benefits, not only in terms of enabling tea and coffee to be served at the perfect temperature without having to wait for the kettle to boil, but also being relatively easy to fit retrospectively and freeing up worktop space for an uncluttered finish.

“Technological advancements mean that the latest additions to our Pronteau range, such as the Prothia 3IN1 steaming hot water tap, are now more cost effective than ever, with a sleek, slim-line design and choice of finishes that make this a really valuable addition to the kitchen.”

The Best Heating Options for Your Home

There’s nothing quite like the cosy comfort of a woodburner, multifuel, gas or electric stove to come home to after a long day. As well as heating living rooms, dining areas, kitchens and open-plan spaces, a freestanding stove will add a statement centrepiece that acts as an anchor to your interior design scheme. This winter, whether you’re planning a heating upgrade or you’re new to shopping for a stove, the experts at ACR Stoves can help. Vicky Naylor, General Manager at ACR Stoves, answers your most common questions.

Pictured above: Larchdale Woodburner Stove £1775.00

Q) What are the benefits of electric, gas, woodburning and multifuel stoves?
A) Electric models are ideal for those who don’t have access to gas and want an easy, clean option that can be turned on and off at the flick of a switch. You can also enjoy its flame effect without the ambient heat, which makes it a great feature all year round, and it’s so cheap to run. Gas stoves meanwhile come in modern and classic styles and don’t require a chimney so they can be installed virtually anywhere so long as a balanced flue can be fitted. Their temperature control makes them easy to operate and you can have remote control or smart models that allow you to set timers and temperature from your smartphone or tablet.
For those who prefer the look and feel of a solid fuel stove, we also have a fantastic range of woodburning and multifuel stoves in classic and contemporary designs. There are stoves with large viewing windows so you can enjoy a great view of the flickering flames and warm glow inside, and all our stoves are EcoDesign Ready.

Q) What does EcoDesign Ready mean?
A) This European-wide initiative comes into effect in 2022 and is designed to lower stove emissions, making using a woodburner or multifuel stove better for our environment. All solid fuel stoves from ACR Stoves are now EcoDesign Ready, so you can buy your new model safe in the knowledge that it will comply with 2022’s standards.

Q) So what is the best fuel to use in a woodburner or multifuel stove?
A) From February 2021, the government will ban the sale of pre-packaged bituminous house coal and wet wood, as these are the most polluting fuels. It’s part of the Clean Air Strategy and is aimed to encourage us to switch to cleaner low sulphur smokeless fuels and seasoned, dried wood instead. Seasoned, dry logs will always be the best fuel to burn as they are a sustainable, low carbon choice which is renewable in our lifetime.

Q) What should I look for in terms of heat output?
A) A stove’s heat output is measured in kilowatts (kW) and in order to calculate how many kW your room requires, work out the volume of the space in cubic metres (width x height x length) then divide by 14. This will give you an approximate idea of the required output but the number of doors, windows, level of insulation will all make a difference, so it is best to ask your supplier or installer to confirm this for you when carrying out their survey.

Q) Do all stoves need a chimney?
A) It certainly makes installation easier if there is a chimney in place but it is not always essential. You will need a flue though (unless you are choosing an electric model that doesn’t need one) and this allows you to opt for a freestanding stove or a model with side glasses to give views of the flames inside from every angle. Twin-wall flue pipes can be fitted through the roof or a wall and they can be left exposed or boxed in. A flue is needed in order to remove any harmful gases. If you’re in any doubt about where the best position is for your new stove, our experts at ACR Stoves can help.

Q) What are some of the features to look for when choosing a new stove?
A) Some of the qualities that we include within our woodburning and multifuel range are solid construction, airwash system, cleanburn technology, lined firebox, adjustable log guard and easy to use controls. An airwash system is essential, as combustion can produce deposits that build up on the interior of the stove, causing the glass door panel to become dirty, spoiling your view of the flames inside. Our airwash system sweeps away these deposits to leave a clear, uninterrupted view. Cleanburn technology basically means more heat for you and fewer harmful emissions to the environment while a lined firebox helps retain heat for longer.
ACR Stoves has over 30 years’ experience in designing highly efficient and stylish traditional and modern woodburning and multifuel stoves, as well as offering a wide selection of gas and electric designs. Designed in Britain and created for the modern home, all stoves meet the latest and future environmental standards. Built for a lifetime of use, they come with a 10 year warranty and include stunning features such as large ceramic glass door panels, luxurious finishes and our cleanburn technology and lined fireboxes for maximum efficiency without the mess.

Flight Fillow turns any sweater or hoodie into a travel or traditional pillow, giving you all of the benefits without any of the hassle. It fits in your pocket, is easy to wash and adjusts to your own comfort. We have been featured in Business Insider, MSN, WGN, and would love to work with you, too!

Flight Fillow is perfect post pandemic since it is machine washable giving you the ability to have a clean slate each trip. Additionally, when you are not using it, Flight Fillow fits in your pocket or your backpack so you don’t have to worry about it touching the airport floor, seats, or anything gross when you are not using it (and then touching your face after, yuck)!

Flight Fillow solves these common problems because it is easy to pack and wash, making it perfect for many different types of travel. You simply roll up your hoodie or jacket and put it into the Flight Fillow to use as a neck pillow. Alternatively, you can tuck in the arms of the sweater/hoodie to use Flight Fillow as a traditional pillow. All of these features make Flight Fillow the perfect option for anyone that goes backpacking, camping or does any form of traveling!

See Your Strength was started by a (now-single) mother of four, after her own battle with depression. Once Amber Murray realized how you talk to *yourself* matters – she did something about it!

Products for possible inclusion:

1. See Your Strength creates tools for mental health, primarily mirror decals, with the goal of improving hope, self-compassion, and encouragement.

They come in sets, with categories like Happy You’re Here, Resiliency, Positive Mindset, and more. Messages include, “The world needs you… GO SHINE!” And, “Take care how you talk to yourself. You are listening.”

2. Grateful For You kit: this is made up of a small spiral-bound booklet, a sheet of reusable inspirational stickers, 3 mirror decals, and a mailing envelope!

The book prompts you to fill out things you love, like, or admire about someone, and then – the best part! – you mail it to them. Oh, and those mirror decals – they have these messages: “You make the world beautiful,” “I love you,” and “I believe in you.”

This kit is BRAND-NEW and will be released THIS MONTH.

The backstory:

We’ve seen the headlines about what’s being called the “second wave” of COVID-19. The mental wellness challenges. The substance abuse issues. It’s possible these mental health issues could lead to overdoses, suicide ideation, or even an increase of deaths by suicide.

With a mental health system already under immense pressure before COVID, the health and economic repercussions of this virus have sent us reeling. It doesn’t matter how old you are, how rich or poor you are, where you are in your career or personal life – it can strike anyone, any family, at any time. And much of the time, the struggle with mental health is silent.

Amber Murray, the founder of See Your Strength, had her epiphany six years ago. She is a physical and sexual abuse survivor and was struggling in her marriage to a man who was deployed. As a mom of four, she was suicidal. In her darkest moment, she looked in the bathroom mirror and found herself writing on it – right across her face – with a bar of soap.

“Step into your life,” she wrote. That was the moment everything shifted.

She wrote messages on the mirror for years and learned the power of self-compassion with a shift in the language she uses with herself daily.

When, in 2017, it dawned on her that this simple, critical skill wasn’t being taught in schools, her business of love, See Your Strength, came to life.

Now, there are more than 700 schools – spread across every single state – which have SYS mirror decals displayed. There are also several departments in universities and colleges throughout the country, mental health programs, Native American Tribes, a number of Utah businesses (she’s based in St. George, UT), and now, even Hill Air Force Base.
