As the weather becomes cooler and the sun takes longer to rise in the morning it's tempting to stay in bed a little longer, so I thought it was fitting to devote this weeks profile to beautiful beds. For Georgie Leckey, an interior designer with a passion for textiles, it was a gap in the market which prompted her to design and create her own range of custom upholstered bedheads and launch Heatherly Design Bedheads in 2007. Available in various styles and fabrics, from timeless neutrals to striking bold prints, Georgie's luxurious range has grown to include fully upholstered beds, blanket boxes which mirror the design of the bedhead, coordinating valances, chairs and bedside tables. Just like goldilocks I'd love to dive into every one of these beds. You can checkout Georgie extensive design gallery here.
