My name is Mercedes, and I'm the person behind L'Amour et la Musique - a YouTube channel, podcast, website and social media presence centered around eco-beauty, alternative health and wellness, and conscious living.
My interest in natural health began more than a decade ago, after a healing crisis led to a deeper investigation of many facets of my life. After earning my PhD in urban and environmental sociology in 2013, I started L'Amour et la Musique shortly after to help ease my life transition out of grad school and to share my longstanding creative passions with other like-minded beauty and wellness enthusiasts.
Now 7 years later I'm continuing to share my learnings and life pursuits online, and I know many people are interested in what investments they can make to lead a more low-tox lifestyle.
Given how much of our lives we spend sleeping, taking the time to research and invest in the best possible quality mattress is a worthwhile endeavor. We spent about 6 months researching mattresses and bedding, and found our way to The Clean Bedroom where we received the highest quality service and attention.
We've been so happy with our experience that I want to share some of my favorite products with you, and hope you find some new healthy favorites too.
This is the mattress we went with, after considering the Obasan 10" as well. Ultimately we decided we wanted the extra-soft top layer to avoid having to buy an extra topper, and we still had the ability to customize the multi-zoned comfort layers on each half of the bed. Truly could not be happier, this mattress is a dream!
Our runner up, and a great option for anything looking for something just a bit less plush than the 12"
With the growing concern about the effects of all the harmful pesticides, chemicals, and toxins found in average home bedding solutions, more and more consumers are looking for a healthier, safer alternative.

After investing in a clean mattress you'll want an easily washable mattress protector to safeguard your new bed.
For kids' beds or any families who co-sleep with little ones, a waterproof mattress protector is a great idea. The recycled polyurethane is breathable with no off-gassing, VOCs, or PVC.
The Obasan Banff Comforters come in 3 weights (light, medium, heavy) and are made with Argentinian organic wool. We absolutely love ours and how warm it has kept us during a very cold Chicago winter.
We have several different Obasan pillows on our bed and they are far and away the best pillows we've ever slept on. In fact trying the pillows first convinced us to explore Obasan's mattresses!
A versatile mattress that is amazing for kids, one side is medium and the other side is firm giving great support for growth and development.
Percale sheets are a great year-round sheet, staying cool and breathable. An excellent bedding staple!
Coyuchi makes some of my favorite bed linens, and I like to mix and match different textile types between sheets, shams, duvets and blankets.
Wool pillows are so good for side and stomach sleepers, or anyone who gets hot when they sleep.
Linen gives off such a cozy and inviting bedroom aesthetic.
