How To Create A Hotel-Style Bedroom At Home
Carolyn Mitchell director of interior design at Hypnos, the luxury British bed maker, offers some advice on creating a hotel-style bedroom in your own home:
“Checking into a hotel and getting away from it all is something we all enjoy, but that’s not always possible. We all live busy lives, and we’re therefore increasingly relying on our bedrooms to present us with a sanctuary away from the stresses of everyday life. So, it comes as no surprise that the trend for hotel-style interiors is as popular as ever as we aim to replicate that feeling of being in a luxurious hotel room in our own home.
“The reason this style is so popular is because we are craving that sense of glamour, and total indulgence that comes with staying at a boutique or luxury hotel. To bring this philosophy into your own home, colour and texture are key, as is the colour palette of your room. For example, warm neutral shades of caramel and cream which are used alongside natural and earthy accessories help to create a paired back country-luxe hotel style.
“The look of your bedroom is personal, whether you take inspiration from a rich opulent hotel, or an understated country retreat, both can create a sense of escape and that feeling of luxury.
“The bed, as you would expect, is vital in recreating the hotel-style in your bedroom and to develop that sense of escape, the bed should act as the focal point of the room. You can create a sumptuous look with a statement bed cover, plenty of plush cushions, and throws, along with a striking headboard.
“Adding a stylish designer headboard is a fantastic way to recreate the luxury boutique feel in your own bedroom. A headboard can completely transform the look and feel of a room – as well as the bed itself. In fact, the right headboard can elevate the hotel-style of a bedroom, so finding one that fits your interior style is crucial in pulling this style together.
“Think tall, winged headboards for a maximalist style or deeply buttoned headboards for a modern take on a traditional style. An intricately piped headboard in a geometric design, can offer a contemporary take on hotel luxe style, or upholstered headboards with a striking or detailed patterned fabric can help to create an individual look for your bedroom. At Hypnos, we offer a range of headboards that can be tailored to your interior décor, so you can create a look that fits into your ideal hotel-style.
“What’s more, providing guests with the best sleep experience is at the heart of any hotel, and, as we spend a third of our lives asleep, getting a good night’s rest should very much be on the agenda in your own home too. That feeling of snuggling into bed after a long day is key to creating the hotel experience, so it’s important you invest in a good, comfortable mattress with supportive pillows and a cosy duvet. For the ultimate in comfort consider a bed with a built-in mattress topper, such as those in our Pillow Top collection. Here at Hypnos, we have a range of sustainably designed mattresses made with responsibly sourced fillings that are guaranteed to help you drift off and achieve a comfortable night’s sleep – just as if you were in a hotel.”
