Ten ways to design a boutique hotel-worthy bed room
I love to bring Southern Europe and its distinctive architecture, art, and design into the bedroom. Details of ornate carvings, colorful tiles, wrought iron accents, and plush textiles create a warm and inviting atmosphere in the bedroom.
One of the best things about the Southern European design is that it is associated with a relaxed and laid-back lifestyle, which can appeal to those looking to create a calming and peaceful environment in their bedroom.
Here are ten ways to get started to bring in some of the influences from boutique hotels around the region.
1. Use earthy tones
Southern European countries are known for their warm and earthy color palettes. Consider incorporating shades of terracotta, ochre, and burnt sienna into the room.
2. Add texture:
Incorporate texture into the room using natural materials such as wood, stone, and woven textiles.
3. Use rustic elements
Add a rustic touch to the bedroom by incorporating features such as exposed brick, reclaimed wood, or distressed metal.
4. Incorporate Mediterranean tiles
Southern European countries are known for their beautiful tile work. Consider adding colorful Mediterranean tiles to the bathroom or as an accent wall in the bedroom.
5. Use wrought iron accents
Wrought iron accents are a staple of Southern European design. Consider incorporating this material into light fixtures, mirrors, and other decorative elements.
6. Bring in natural light
Southern Europe is known for its sunny climate, so make sure to bring in as much natural light as possible. Use sheer curtains or none to maximize the light entering the room.
7. Add greenery
Southern European countries are known for their beautiful gardens and lush greenery. Add potted plants or a vertical garden to bring a touch of the outdoors inside.
8. Incorporate vintage pieces
Vintage pieces add character and charm to a room. Consider incorporating antique furniture or decorative elements to give the room a unique feel.
9. Use patterned textiles
Southern European countries are known for their beautiful materials. Consider incorporating patterned fabrics such as a kilim rug or a vibrant bedspread into the room.
10. Use a canopy bed
Canopy beds are popular in Southern European design. Incorporate a canopy bed into the room to add a touch of elegance and romance.
