Simple Living | Creating a spare room for guests, with Eve premium mattress…


Over the New Year’s/festive period we had friends and family staying with us, not at the same time I might add. So to accommodate them, we decided to make over Charlie’s loft bedroom so it became a lovely place for guests to sleep whilst they were with us.
