The feeling of walking into a fancy hotel brings a sense of excitement in just about anyone. Whether the scent of lobby flower arrangements or the crisp, clean sheets, there’s nothing quite like the first step into a pleasant guest stay.
Unfortunately, you can’t permanently stay in a hotel; you eventually have to go home to your room. But what if there was a way to make your house feel as luxurious as that five-star suite? Well, you’re in luck! Here are some design tips to elicit the same joy as a vacation home.
Invest in High-Quality Bedding
Your bed is the focal point of your primary bedroom, so don’t skimp on the bedding you place on it. One of the best elements about a hotel is the soft, cozy sheets and plush comforter — and you can create the same experience in your own home.
Start by choosing the right type of fabric. Play with quilted textiles, linen, velvet, cotton, and more to achieve your desired high-end look. Just make sure it’s super comfortable! Hotels often use chic linens and cotton to keep you warm throughout the night while delivering a light and breezy design.
Use a Neutral Palette
While this isn’t always the case, many suites use neutral tones and subtle pops of color in their rooms. This invites a sense of calm that bright, colorful areas can’t consistently deliver. Use shades like beige, gray, off-white, and brown, or choose muted hues like greens and blues to welcome a dynamic palette that’s relaxed but never boring.
If you want to add a splash of color, keeping to the theme of opulent design, hang up a beautiful piece of art. This sophisticated decor choice can add dimension to a fabulous space and make the room feel less empty.
Make Your Bathroom Embody a Spa
Creating a spa-like bathroom environment is a great way to make your home feel like a relaxing escape. You don’t have to leave the house to enjoy all the amenities your newly renovated suite offers. Introduce crystal or stone hand soap dispensers, candles, bath salts, plants, lush towels, a large mirror with great lighting, and any other items you look forward to using at your favorite spa or hotel room. Always have that just-cleaned look by decluttering the room using chic storage underneath your vanity or in a closet.
Opt for Fancy Light Fixtures
Hotel rooms don’t often have a ton of decor, but they always have the best lighting. High-end side lamps and floor lamps can bring a warm touch to your room and invite an ambient aesthetic to your entire home. Every area needs the best type of lighting, so ignite each area with a lamp style of your choice: marble stands with white shades for the bedroom, black hanging basket lights in the kitchen, a crystal chandelier above the seating area, any elegant, modern fixture will do.
