Reaching your wellness goals in 2017 definitely starts with a good night’s sleep!

This resonates with Alex & Corban Walls (of The Block fame) who have created a ‘Sleep Haven’ in their North Shore home.  Sleep is important to both of them, especially since welcoming baby Austen.

Devoted to design, interiors and fashion, Alex & Corban have created a comfortable and relaxing space to wind down each night.  They have a beautiful home environment, full of love and comfort.

We sat down with Alex at their sunny home to find out what went into creating their cosy sleep haven and to get her thoughts on their new Sealy Posturepedic Exquisite bed.



What does a sleep haven mean to you and what was your inspiration for this space?

A sleep haven to me is a place where your body and mind can relax and unwind. There’s so much going on in our everyday lives that I like to keep this space minimalist, with light colours, comfortable textures, linen blankets and carefully selected furniture.  I would say that our style is clean and modern.  The simple and relaxed feel creates a space that is restorative and calming.


What in your room makes you happy? What are some of your favourite pieces?

Our new bed!  I sit and work on it, take time to read and play with Austen on it, and take much needed naps, especially after our broken sleep at night with a young child!



How important is having a good night sleep to you? How does it affect you day-to-day?

It didn’t take us long as a couple and new parents to realise the importance of sleep. We end up being cranky and struggling to concentrate the next day if we’ve had a bad night’s sleep. And especially with our wee man, the sleep that I do get has become incredibly precious to me, so the thought of a comfortable new bed to look forward to each night is very exciting.


What was your first impression of the Sealy Posturepedic Exquisite bed?

We tried the Sealy online bed selector and then headed to store to try out the recommended bed.  
It’s the first time in my life I’ve thought, “this bed is truly comfortable.”


What are your mornings like?

Every morning we relax in bed together as a family and discuss our plans for the day, while soaking up all of Austen’s cuddles and smiles! This is our favourite time of the day.


What’s your favourite quote or motto you live by?

“Have a laugh” – this motto reminds me not to take myself too seriously. I’m human and will make mistakes, I have character flaws and will enviably do and say silly things. Instead of being worried about what people think, I try and just laugh at myself.
