Next To My Bed: LEIN's Meredith Stoecklein

Welcome to our latest installment of Next to My Bed, a feature on Hill House Home's 40 Winks Blog that takes an up close and personal look at what some of our friends keep next to their bed.

Meredith Stoecklein, Founder & Designer of LEIN

If you're on the hunt for a truly unique wedding dress option, you've most likely come across LEIN, the hand-crafted bespoke and ready-to-wear brand founded and designed by  Parsons School of Design grad Meredith Stoecklein. After working amongst the likes of Zac Posen and Narciso Rodriguez,  Stoecklein worked directly with the seamstresses at Chanel's couturier (!), where she truly learned her detailed craft. Now, she's known for her new approach of wedding wear.
What side of the bed do you sleep on?
Middle sleeper for the middle child I am!

What can you not sleep without?
Pajamas, I love a matching set. [One of] my go-to's is The Gaia Pajama Set. It's the perfect long-sleeve and shorts combo.

What is currently next to your bed?
A set of mid-century antique burl wood side tables. I brought them to Greenwich Village with me when I moved here from LA. 

What do you keep on your side table and/or floor next to your bed?
A glass carafe. I'm so bad about drinking enough water and this is my reminder. I always have some type of greenery next to my bed. Right now, I'm into a single black calla lily. I also love Coqui Coqui's room diffuser in the Tabaco scent. 

What is the strangest thing that's next to your bed?
A lip sleeping mask by LANEIGE. It's dreamy and I wake up with super soft lips.

What would you not be able to sleep without being next to your bed?
I'm embarrassed to admit, my phone. Sometimes you'll find a cookbook. I love testing new recipes for dinner on my back porch. I'm obsessed with Alison Roman. She can do no wrong.

What is your nighttime routine in 5 steps or less?
3. Roll with my new obsession, REFA carat face roller. It's a game-changer!
5. I'm big on moisturizing and recently fell in love with Clarins Baume Corps Super Hydrant. It's the perfect silkiness to slip into bed with.
