Five Star Bedroom
Do you love the glitz and glamour of a 5 star hotel room? You can create the same effect in your own room at home. For the epitome of comfort and decadent luxury, follow these tips from the top hotel decorators.
Color Palette- If you truly want to reproduce the hotel room look, go with a monochromatic and sophisticated tone. Quiet, soothing color combinations like sage and pearl look classy and add the aura of calm to your getaway space.
Furnishings– Soften your space with a chaise. Add upholstered chairs, a puffy ottoman and a majestic padded headboard. Top it off with a place to sit and tie your shoes, maybe a cushioned bench at the end of the bed.
Bed - Purchase the best quality mattress you can afford. Along the same lines you’ll want to invest in 300-400 thread count sheets and pillowcases. Add lots of sleeping pillows as well as throw pillows -the fluffier the better, and don’t forget a comfy duvet or throw to snuggle up in while you indulge in your latest novel.
Lighting – Speaking of reading, consider lighting. How about an elegant chandelier, wall sconce, or attractive floor lamps. A gorgeous bedside lamp can also work as an accent piece when placed atop your nightstand.
Nightstands - If you have enough room, go for a matched pair - one on either side of your bed . In addition to props for you decorative lamps, nightstands serve as a place to set your drink and midnight snacks.
Mini Refrigerator – Did someone mention snacks? What better place to store them than in your mini fridge, this way you don’t have to trek all the way to the kitchen in search of Bonbons or your favorite beverage. (It’s O.K. to pamper yourself, this is your decadent hideaway remember?)
Hideaway Walls – Cover them with artwork. From family photos to the old masters – surround yourself with whatever makes you happy.
Now you’ve got the makings of a great getaway room, one that rivals an expensive stay at the Ritz. Come on in, put your feet up, and enjoy your stay.
