The Nairobi weather has been on the chilly side the past few months. Especially where I live, I adopt the kujifunika gubi gubi side of life to get through the night. My bed is very important to me. I dress it with fresh sheets, pretty duvets and a few more pillows and cushions than I would want to admit; I plan on getting more by the way!
The cushions come in handy when I am sitting on the chair next to my bed; reading or typing. They offer good support for my back and neck. I also drop one on my feet for warmth.
If you get especially cold like me, I think it's a good idea to get a heater. I switch mine on for about ten minutes then close my bedroom door; that will help keep the room warm.
On colder nights I fold an extra blanket at about knee length on top of my duvet. This helps so that if it gets hot I can just reach and put the blanket on the chair and go back to sleep.
You can check out my Interior Decor board on Pinterest for more ideas on how to decorate your bed and make the room more cosy.
