Capturing that luxury hotel suite feeling

February 21, 2017
Capturing that luxury hotel suite feeling inside your own home is easy.

What's one of the best parts about going away on holiday? The resort suite, of course! There's something about that moment you enter your new home away from home. The room has a pared back style – it seems uncluttered and yet you've got everything you need at your fingertips. Having all the right amenities in the right room will immediately whisk away all your stresses and causes of anxiety. Sink into a comfy cosy bed with the ocean breeze coming through the balcony door, ruffling your sheets. Take a sip of spring water from the mini bar and it won't be long before you're rejuvenated inside and out.

If you're yearning to capture this moment and feel tempted to book that holiday or short getaway, just wait – you do have another option. You don't have to be away on vacation to experience some of this magic, you can create it in your own home by transforming your bedroom into a space of peace and tranquillity.

You need this space

These days, it is harder than ever to disconnect and slow down, and we're being run into the ground as a result. It is therefore more important than ever to have a place where you can escape to. Transforming your boudoir into your own personal paradise will give you a mini vacation each and every night. And there really is nothing better than that!

Making this oasis possible

Home sweet home will never be a more accurate saying than when you transform your space into a luxurious getaway – a room that looks like it belongs in a high-end spa resort, right under your very own roof.

If you already have an ensemble you can start by simply introducing a custom made bedhead – they're just what you need to create a stylish focal point and that boutique hotel look and feel. An upholstered bedhead like our Raffles, accompanied by some scatter cushions and a throw blanket, is just the start of prepping your personal paradise.

Making your sanctuary more functional helps create that feeling of having everything you need within an arm's reach.

For the nights when it's too hot for the throw, stow it away without any mess or fuss in one of our upholstered blanket boxes. Keep it at the foot of your bed, or perhaps under your windowsill for a snuggly daydreaming perch.

Our  York' Blanket Box, featured here with our Victoria bed in Chambray Oyster from Warwick Fabrics, is highly functional as a storage ottoman, a comfortable seat and attractive styling element.Our 'York' Blanket Box, featured here with our Victoria bed in Chambray Oyster from Warwick Fabrics, is highly functional as a storage ottoman, a comfortable seat and attractive styling element.

Having an ensuite or walk in robe or both, will make your sanctuary more functional and give you that feeling of having everything you need within an arm's reach. If these are still on your wish list, then think about other options to better utilise any unused space. In addition to a fashionable blanket box, a cosy armchair adds an air of sophistication and might be the perfect way to personalise your own suite.

After that, it's just a couple of finishing touches. A gorgeous vanity, bedside tables and lighting, mini greenhouses filled with colourful arrangements of succulents and your favourite pictures of friends and family. Even beverage stations are even making their way into bedrooms to help create a hotel vibe.

The finishing touches

Have you ever noticed how you feel more at ease when things match? It might be subconscious, but when a suite is decorated with a cohesive theme. You can ensure that your bedhead, blanket box and armchair all work together when you coordinate fabrics with us here at BedNest. Contact us today and let's make a start on getting you the bedroom of your dreams!
