Moms Deserve the Best: Inspiration from Courtney Ren

Moms Deserve the Best: Inspiration from Courtney Ren

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we sat down with our in-house Partnerships Marketing Manager and social media influencer, Courtney Ren to learn more about her life as a mother. In this interview, Courtney shares what it means to create a home, some key tips on balancing her role as a mom with her role at work, and how Double Stitch bedding has played an important part in creating a comfortable, cozy, and nurturing environment for her and her family. 

Double Stitch: How has being a mom influenced your perspective on bedding and home comfort?

Courtney: Being a mom helped me realize how important home is. The home is where we all gather as a family and spend the most time together. The look and feel of the home is key to maintaining ultimate comfort and I believe that investing in quality home textiles is a great start in building the comfort of the home.

Double Stitch: How do you balance being a mom with your responsibilities at work? 

Courtney: To be able to juggle being a mom while working full-time, I need all the sleep I can get. Improving my sleep quality is crucial and this starts with adding high-quality bedding to my routine. The Organic Cotton Collection has been such a dream to sleep on and has improved my sleep for sure––the brushed cotton is so soft, I look forward to going to bed and end up snoozing several times in the morning.

Double Stitch: How do you usually style your bedroom? 

Courtney: I love styling my bedroom in mostly neutral tones with a pop of color. My bed is currently topped with the Matelassé Wave Coverlet Set in Lilac Bloom & Bright White. It not only gives my bedroom a subtle pop of pink, but also some texture and dimension from the cotton gauze material and unique wave design!

Double Stitch: How do you prioritize self-care while managing your family and work commitments?

Courtney: As a full-time working mom, self-care should be a top priority. If I feel good, then I can be in a positive headspace to be the best mom I can be. With that said, I love pampering myself––a cozy evening in with a long skincare routine does the trick for me. I incorporate the Mulberry Silk Gift Set into my skin and sleep routine and love cozying up with the Linen Cotton Throw Blanket while catching up on social media at the end of the day.

Double Stitch: How do you plan to celebrate Mother's Day this year, both personally and within our team?

Courtney: We're celebrating Mother's Day this year with a family photoshoot! Photoshoots are a great way to capture a moment in time and one day, I'm going to look back and appreciate these photographs that not only shows me in my new mom era, but also reminds me of how small my children were.

Our team is curating a Mother's Day Gift Guide to show that moms deserve the best. We have gifts for all of the mother figures in your life––the minimalist mom, the working mom, the homebody mom, and the mom who has everything. We hope this helps you find the perfect, cozy gift that will last a lifetime.
