Bring a boutique hotel feel into your home
Gone are the days of identikit houses; eclectic is the latest trend and putting some personality into your home is the hottest look right now.
The only problem is it's hard to know how much of “you” to inject into your decorating without making your home look a bit of a mess. You need to create a balance between individual taste and universal style and the best way to do that is to look at places where the two are regularly merged successfully.
Boutique hotels have the look everyone should be after, both accommodating and individual, they showcase original style without being intimidating. You too can recreate this stylish look in your own home if you just follow these simple steps:
- Keep walls neutral. While you might want to decorate your home in your favourite colours, keeping things a little subtle means the look remains chic over time and you can add individual touches and flair without the look being overwhelming.
- Go for quality furnishings that make a statement. Choose a classic sofa in an inviting finish like these fabric sofas by CSL, in a timeless colour that will last a lifetime. Then add some cushions in bold brights or pretty patterns for an on-trend twist. You can also experiment with curtains and go for eye-grabbing patterns and shades for a perfect pop of colour.
- Quality is the key when you're looking for bedding and towels. Spend a little extra for a luxurious feel. Bedding can be uniform or mix and match as long as it's tonal or convincingly stylish. When it comes to towels ditch the old beach favourites and anything that's getting a little past its best. Invest in a matching set of towels to give your bathroom a polished look.
- Awesome accessories make a great statement. Visit junk shops and car-boot sales to search for curios and reasonably priced kitsch and memorabilia that will give your home that boutique hotel feel. Whether its stuffed animals or old street signs, the addition of a few far-out accessories will make the ultimate style statement.
So follow these tips, keep the core of your home chic and timeless and dress it up with fabulous furnishings and tremendous trinkets to get that polished holiday feel every day.
