Bring a hotel vibe to your bedroom

* Collaborative post

Something most of us can agree on is that there really isn't anything better than a night in a luxury hotel. It is one of those occasions where you just seem to have the best night's sleep ever (without a sneaky toddler appearing in the middle of the night to join you), and returning to your own lowly bedroom afterward can often be pretty disappointing. But what if you could bring that luxury hotel vibe to your own home so that you can revel in it 24/7? Here are a few tips to help you do just that.


Match up your colour scheme

What do nearly all hotels have in common? Well, a colour scheme, of course. That's not to say that every hotel has the SAME colour scheme - but you rarely see a hotel room that uses more than three colors in its palette at any given time. Too many different colours in one room can make the place look overly busy, and the style gets lost among all the shades, so this is something to bear in mind when designing your master bedroom.

Pick three primary colours to use in your room and make sure they compliment each other. You can either go with varying shades of the same color (such as a pale turquoise, a bold teal, and a deep sea green) or you could pick different colours entirely, providing they don't clash. Visit your local DIY store and pick up some paint swatches and some catalogs, as they will be able to give you a clearer idea of what colours match each other. Then, you can pick your walls, bedding, curtains and decor accordingly.


Cloud-like bedding

It's no coincidence that you sleep amazingly whenever you visit a hotel. Hotels put a lot of time and money into finding only the very best bedding, so if you want to sleep like a baby every night, it can be worth taking a leaf out of their books! Companies such as Richard Haworth produce high-quality bed linens that easily bring the hotel feel to your bed. If your mattress isn't up to par, pop a cushioning mattress protector underneath it before you lay on your bedding - it will make it much softer and more comfortable for you. Finally, top with some squashy pillows and decorative cushions - pillow chocolate optional!


Luxury curtains and rugs

No hotel style room is complete without a fabulous pair of curtains and a fluffy rug. If you want your bedroom to emulate an expensive suite, think carefully about the quality of the materials you use. Think, flimsy curtains not only won't shield you from the morning sun - they will also look cheap. Opt for a thicker, heavier material for your curtains, and make sure you can tie them back during the daytime, so they frame the window nicely. On a similar note, don't do things by halves with your rugs - a fluffy imitation sheepskin is a perfect thing for you to put your feet on when you get out of bed in the morning.
