Shades of Sleep is known for its sumptuous bedding and stylish sleepwear but here is a secret.   We also have amazing jewellery from Joanna Bisley a local Calgarian who loves creating beautiful jewellery from Swarovski crystal.  Her latest design features a key designed by Yoko Ono who collaborated with Swarovski Crystal on the new Key to the Forest Collection.  The keys symbolize her hopes and dreams for our planet.  She says about her design; ” Imagine a key that unlocks the door to the forest with is secrets, to the sky with it’s peacefulness, to the universe and its infinity, to a future with the promise of a better life”.

Key to the Forest Collection

What do Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France, and Shades of Sleep have in common?


Francois Rance created the fragrance “Josephine” within the strict guidelines of his pupil Napoleon Bonaparte as a dedication to Josephine, the love of his life. Since Josephine was drawn to exotic rose oils, only the finest May Rose was used in this joyful spring floral bouquet.

In 1859 Francois also created a fragrance (“Eugenie”) from the most refined and delicate essences for Eugenie de Montijo, the wife of Napoleon III.

Shades of Sleep nestled in Inglewood is honored to now carry these fragrances from Rance together with several of their triple milled soaps and when paired with towels from the Abyss collection, promises a most luxurious bathing experience.
