If you didn't catch last night's Income Property on HGTV, you missed out on some great bedroom makeovers! We were proud to supply the bedding for all three bedrooms. Check out the video of the reveal below!
Here’s to the lazy ones. The nappers. The snorers. The sleepy heads.
The explorers in search of the cold side of the pillow. The ones who sleep in every morning. They’re not fond of getting up. And they have no respect for a flat duvet.
You can call them, text them, bang on their door or shake them. About the only thing you can’t do is ruin their sleep.
Why? Because they sleep in our sheets. They slow down the pace of the day. And while some may see them as the lazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are bold enough to sleep a little more, are the ones who do.

Q: How Do I Select the Right pillow?
A: One of the key components of a great sleep is the pillow, but it can be challenging to find one you like! More often than not, some trial and error is required, so keep the following in mind.
It can take a couple months to 'break in' a new pillow. It's not going to feel exactly like the beloved one you've been sleeping on for the last 3 years right away! If you find that it's slightly too firm at first, try unzipping your pillow protector during your 'breaking in' stage. Unfortunately, if you've gone with something too soft, you'll have to head back to the drawing board and try something a little firmer. The good news is, you're one step closer to finding your perfect pillow.
There's a lot to consider when selecting a pillow, so we try to describe ours as clearly as possible to help:
SUPER SOFT SUPPORT: A good choice for stomach sleepers. Look for a pure white goose down pillow. We recommend the Heirloom Pillow.
MEDIUM TO SOFT SUPPORT: Preferred by back sleepers. Choose a pure white goose down pillow with more fill. We recommend the Au Lit Medium pillow.
FIRM TO MEDIUM SUPPORT: Ideal for side sleepers. Choose a pure white goose down pillow with even more fill. We recommend the Au Lit Firm.
EXTRA FIRM SUPPORT: Ideal for side sleepers. Look for a blend of feather and down. We recommend the Summit pillow which is 80% feather surrounded by 20% of down.
Friendly Reminder: Our Pillow and Duvets are 20% off until November 30th.
It's windy here in Toronto and all we can think about is our new, cozy, super soft flannel.
A great example of Charcoal Flannel is Thom Browne's simple use of it in his Manhattan apartment. We wouldn't recommend this look for your master but it would be perfect for a boys room!

Don't get us wrong, we love our diamonds but at the end of the day, it's just you and your pillow. It's there when you go to bed, it's there when you get up and all it asks for in return is the occasional fluff.
No one understands the importance of a perfect pillow relationship more than our staff. The bond to their pillow is so strong they took the time to pose with their favourite.

Zoey and the Mt. Tremblant
Speaking of Zoey... We'd like to take this time to bid her farewell :(. She's packing her bags and heading back to her homeland in the UK! Our loss is their gain. We'll miss you Zoey! Bon Voyage!
Here at Au Lit we take pride in educating our customers on every aspect of our products. With that in mind, the global demand for goose down has skyrocketed due in large part to the growing popularity of down-filled ski jackets. As such, the limited supply of white goose down has caused prices to spike dramatically, with more increases on the horizon.
"An increase in the price of down filling is forcing apparel and bedding makers to re-engineer their goods, search for alternatives or warn retailers they'll have to pass along the higher costs…" — The Wall Street Journal
We are working with our partners to give you the best prices we can without ever sacrificing genuine quality. We understand this price increase is substantial, but we want you to know that we will not cut corners on the quality of our filling. Rest assured, you are always investing in a quality sleep experience with Au Lit's down products.
