Tip 1: Create symmetry on the bed

Ensuring you have decorative cushions symmetrically placed on the bed will help to create that hotel look. We love to layer up our Twilight 65cm cushions propped up against our pillows, with our Twilight 50x50cm cushions placed in front. To complete the look add the bedspread to match.

Tip 2: White linen is key

To really get that hotel look we suggest investing in high quality white bed linen such as the Mayfair Collection. Crafted in 400 thread count 100% cotton sateen, it’ll give you a luxurious and clean look, whilst having versatility to match any interior theme making it a classic.

Tip 3: Plump up pillows and duvets

One of the key ways to ensure your bed looks like it belongs in a luxury hotel is by ensuring you plump up your pillows and duvet when you are making the bed. This will also ensure that your duvet and pillows look smooth after a nights sleep. Most luxury hotels will use goose down or duck down duvets and pillows due to their high quality, however, you can get the same effect with our synthetic feels like down range.

Tip 4: Dress the bed in muted tones

We lead such hectic lives, our bedrooms are often places we want to feel luxurious and tranquil – this is often the case in hotel rooms too. Pick muted and sophisticated colour tones to layer the bed with cushions and throws. Our Manhattan range for example is perfect for creating sophisticated opulent hotel chic.

Tip 5: Don’t shy away from flat sheets

Traditionally flat sheets were used to separate you from your duvet cover, however it is more commonplace that they are used decoratively or in the summer months. Flat sheets are often an easy way to refresh the look of your bedlinen especially when they have a decorative or contrasting cuff, for example using our Venice flat sheets will give a clean contrast to finish off your bedroom.
