You might remember I repainted my bedroom last month, but I wanted more. After visiting so many great hotels for my upcoming Copenhagen hotel guide, I wanted to make my bedroom feel like a luxury hotel.
There is just something about those luxurious boutique hotels that makes you sleep much better. It’s not only a nice bed that does the trick, it certainly also the crisp, freshly laundered sheets, the well-curated, clutter-free décor, and knowing that you don’t have to lift a finger to get your coffee or tea served in bed the next morning. I teamed up with Jotex, just to show you that it is, in fact, possible to recreate the same vibe in your own bedroom.
Obviously, the best part of a cozy, pristine hotel bedroom has got to be the big, comfy bed. So if you’d like to recreate the hotel feel at home, start with a mini bed makeover. Start with a set of new sheets, forget about the thread count, rather, touch and feel what feels good to you. There is something about an all-white bed if you ask me, and I found the organic white sheets to be just perfect.
The real showstopper and my favorite part of this makeover, the new headboard. I found this very Hotel Sanders like (and very on trend) wooden one to be just perfect – and needless to say, I am obsessed with the natural rotting weaving.
Picking the right paint color is important in every room in the house, but when you want to create a relaxing vibe in the bedroom, color is absolutely crucial. Choose a base color on the walls that can pull everything together, but also one that can go with almost anything. I like a darker bedroom, especially because I have a lot of windows, a white wall bedroom, just makes it seem super bright all night long.
Never underestimate the power of green plants (or fresh flowers). It a very simple way to make a bedroom feel instantly fancy, add a green plant or leave out fresh flowers on the nightstand. If you opt for flowers, stick with one type of fresh flowers, and one with a gentle scent: like a garden rose, peonies or hyacinth. And always avoid heavy pollen flowers, like lilies, that will make you sneeze and wheeze.
Finally, don’t forget the little luxury items. It isn’t just the bedding and decor that make a five-star hotel feel so lux, but also all of the carefully selected little details. For example, leave out a pile of new magazines and books, invest in a nice teapot and always start your day with serving tea or coffee in a nice cup, that just makes the day much better. Splurge on a high-quality scented candle or a fun candlestick holder to your side table for extra cozy vibes when you feel like reading in bed or just staying in bed a little longer on Sunday mornings. If you opt for art in your bedroom, go for a single piece and hang it in an unusual spot, which adds a bit of cool drama to the décor.
That’s it, all new items was found via Jotex, which has a an extremely large catalogue at relatively budget friendly prices.
