A well-presented hotel room conjures feelings of relaxation, pampering and luxury, allowing you to feel completely at ease and comfortable in your surroundings. It is easy to bring hotel chic into your own home through the clever use of soft furnishings within the bedroom.
Bed runners, cushions and curtains – the hallmarks for a boutique look
Investing in high quality hotel-standard soft furnishings like bed runners, cushions and curtains will give your bedroom a luxurious, boutique feel, turning it it a place where you can get away from day-to-day stress by relaxing in comfort and style.

Give colour to your room
When choosing the right fabrics and soft furnishings for your bedroom, it is essential to consider whether you’d like to evoke a warm or cold colour scheme. Selecting shades that compliment this aesthetic accordingly is vital for ensuring a successful, vibrant colour scheme.
Fabrics that work with a warm colour scheme include reds, oranges and yellows – colours that are associated with fire, heat, sun and warm temperatures. For colder themes, choosing serene blues, purples and greens – reminiscent of water and sky – will help you achieve the hotel-look you desire.
Striking, contemporary patterns
When using fabrics to create your dream bedroom it is important to consider the pattern on the fabric. Geometric patterns are perfect for achieving a contemporary feel, especially if you are going for a minimalistic approach consisting of white and beige shades.
In contrast, floral patterns work well to create a more traditional hotel aesthetic. Patterned furnishings work particularly well when surrounded by minimalistic walls, so try disrupting the uniformity of a room with beautifully patterned curtains, cushions and bed runners.
Simplicity with colour
If you decide not to use patterns within your décor, a great alternative is to use a block colour scheme. If you have a feature wall or have used colour to accent various parts of the room, the right fabrics will help tie these colours into the rest of the room. A block colour bed runner for example, with matching cushions or pillowcases will highlight similar colours used around the room and on the walls.

Mix and match your furnishings
It is important to also match the curtains or blinds in the room to your decor. For smaller rooms, curtains or blinds with too busy a pattern may make the room feel smaller and more enclosed, so instead opt for block colour curtains or those with simple patterns.
For bigger rooms you could try matching the curtains with your soft furnishings. Matching cushions and curtains together is an idea that works particularly well.
Try complimenting your chosen colours and patterns with accessories placed around the room. A block colour lamp shade will look brilliant alongside a feature wall with coloured soft furnishings.
If you are working with patterns, look for matching accessories that will highlight patterns used within wallpapers and bed linen or furnishings.
By using these tips, you’ll have an array of options available to you when creating a boutique hotel tone in your own bedroom.
However, if you are starting your own B&B, it is worth first consulting with an expert in the field. They can help you select a specialist hotel linen and soft furnishings supplier to ensure the right effect is generated throughout your home.
