Dear readers... I will let you in on a little secret. I always frequent home fairs, because I have the strong urge to hoard kitchen and bath towels, place mats, pillow covers and beddings. I simply cannot resist whenever I see see that 50% off sign! Good thing, these things have no expiry dates. I can just store them, and use them anytime I want. The smell of new and freshly washed beddings is so enticing... makes me want to stay in bed the entire day :)

We spend most of our time in the bedroom and for most people, bedroom becomes a sanctuary of thoughts, thereby, making it appealing and conducive to the eye can be very useful. The perfect bedroom should help cheer you up as well as get you the right outlook.


I was recently invited to SM Home Fair. And because I love to have a sound sleep at night, I headed automatically to Akemi. All the SM Home Fairs that I have attended, I have always visited the Akemi booth and to look for the latest in beddings. 

1. I have always loved and admired the pastel and neutral colors of Akemi. Not too bold, not too colorful. It always contribute to a very pleasing sleep experience.

2. As far as fabric is concerned, Akemi tops my list. They have the technology, Akemi Tencel which is an amazing eco-friendly fabric. Its completely natural for it is made with wood pulp celluose from sustainable tree. The result, fabrics are a soft as silk, strong as polyester, cool a linen, warm as wool and more absorbent than cotton. Who wouldn't love the touch of that fabric on your skin. Pure heaven!

3. Akemi always continues to innovate their products. Because they just want to bring the best to their consumer. A new technology that they have introduced is Cloud Plush. It is the technology of adding the ultimate in softness, comfort and breathability. The warmth and fluffiness that embellish each product delivers a soft, cushiony cloud-like sensation. So if you are a mom like me... you would want your family to experience this feeling of luxurious comfort.

4. Value for money. I would gladly shell out a few thousand pesos, for one set of Akemi queen size bedding. Why? I have a few Akemi pieces at home and I swear, it last for a long time. If survives weekly washing. And even after a few years, it has retained its softness.


Just how often should you wash your beddings? Research says, once a week is the most ideal. Not washing your beddings regularly can contribute to health problems such as allergies and asthma. Dead skin cells that you shed every night can attract dust mites.

If you can regularly wash your bed sheets and linens, preferably at 60C to kill the bacteria. If you don't have washing machine with hot water, drying the beddings in direct sunlight can also help. Run a hot iron over pillowcases to kill any leftover bacteria.
