We don’t get to travel as much as we’d like. I would love to live out of a suitcase, and be holed up in a hotel room for most part of the year. If you are not fortunate enough to be in a profession that allows this, I suggest you bring the hotel to home.
Transform your boudoir by making it a self-sufficient cocoon of calmness, sophistication and handy amenities. Here’s what you will need to do in order to make luxury a daily lifestyle.
1) The Bed
Invest in bedsheets, duvet cover sets and big fluffy cushions – all in white. They are always pure cotton, typically Egyptian to make them breathable and relaxing.
2) The walls
Keep the walls monochromatic to set a quiet, sophisticated tone. Pick one primary colour and one complementary. Let the chief shade be neutral for a palliative effect.
3) Reading/work desk
A study is an indispensable in hotel rooms which includes a table, chair and lamp set aside in a corner.
4) Sofa or accented chair
Creating seating space, a mini living room, inside your bedroom. A settee, small couch or lounge chairs along with a small table that can hold coffee and cookies can be inserted into the space.
5) Bedside table
Nightstands, matching or otherwise are strategically placed on either side of the bed for convenience. You need a place to put down your drink or bottle of water, lip balm and mobile.
6) Warm lights
You’ll need bedside reading lamps, some wall sconces and a chair-side lamp or two in the seating area. Add different levels of dimness for a dramatic and layered effect.
7) The Amenities
A mini fridge for chocolates and sodas and a tea-maker will add the final touch to your hotel-like bedroom.
