More mattresses and foundations (the ‘updated’ box spring) are typically sold in the winter months during the year. We are cocooning through the cold months, sheltering our bodies from pain and fatigue. As we age, our bodies go through changes that affect our sleep patterns – especially pressure points! During our REM sleep cycle, pain may interrupt that restorative sleep. If our bodies are not cradled properly with pocketed coil support and support zones, we may wake up cranky and feel exhausted – despite having a full night’s rest!
It’s that time of year when Pantone releases their annual “Color of the Year.” This is essentially a color forecast for the upcoming year and affects many industry decisions around the world.

It can be difficult to pull off correctly, and can be smashing if done properly. It is easy to love, but tough to achieve.
The annual announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year was eagerly anticipated by designers and decorators. It has been dubbed Ultra Violet. It is a provocative and thoughtful purple shade that heralds from our past and points towards the future. We may think about the striking violet color of Elizabeth Taylor's eyes or the Purple Rain created by Prince, or the purple jumpsuit and cape worn by Elvis when he met President Nixon, but its history is much older than that.
