Our show homes are designed to transport you to a world where you can relax and envisage escaping to your very own sumptuous sanctuary. In this article we bring you some ideas for how to create a hotel style bedroom in your own home.
How to design a bedroom like a hotel room
Our in-house interior design team are experts when it comes to elegant bedroom ideas.
At our Foxbridge Manor development, we have opted for a boutique-style bedroom with a hotel style bed and a soothing colour scheme to create a place to unwind.
Our head interior designer Alysha Alli says: “We’ve opted for a deeply-padded geometric headboard in a soft taupe velvet to provide a central feature.
“A fitted sheet in a darker tone of taupe lies in contrast to the crisp white duvet cover and pillow cases – a trademark of hotel style bedrooms. It’s a great idea to weave a feature tone throughout your soft furnishings so we’ve used this taupe tone again in the luxurious geometric waffle throw and bespoke accent textured print cushions.
“A feature wallpaper is another way hotel designers bring depth and texture to their bedrooms and we’ve used a textured, shimmering wall covering to create a contrast to the crisp neutral cottons. We’ve also selected fitted wardrobes from Hammonds’ Croft Painted range in white (a My Redrow option) and, continuing the luxurious bedroom ideas, added complementary bedsides and dressing table also in painted white.
“Large and decorative marble lamps sit on top of the bedside tables, also styled with a textural white ceramic vase with eucalyptus and candles – successfully representing a hotel look.
“The dressing table is accompanied by an upholstered statement ‘bubble’ fawn velvet drum stool, while the carpet is from Cormar’s Sensations range in Ammonite, again with shimmering tones to complement the geometric pattern in the floor to ceiling curtains. We’ve completed this glamourous look with an opulent yet classic glass light pendant chandelier fitting.”
Contemporary design ideas for bedrooms
In the Oxford Lifestyle show home at our Midsummer Meadows development, Alysha has created a dynamic and contemporary design in the main bedroom. Warm and relaxing, it’s washed with warm greys and earthy taupes and brought to life with elements of teal and dusky pink.
Alysha says: “A feature wall with textured grey / metallic shimmer wallpaper provides a backdrop for a super king 6ft bed – always a key element in boutique hotel bedrooms. A stunning layered triple headboard blends stone hues with a deep inky green velvet. The bed itself boasts quality crisp white cotton linen with piping around the pillowcases and a quilted herringbone throw in teal to mirror the shade of the striking headboard. Adding extra comfort are the sumptuous accent cushions at the front of the bed in textured light grey tones, warm fawn and darker charcoal velvets.
"This room benefits from a walk-in dressing room, for which we’ve selected shaker style Orion wardrobes from Symphony in Matt Platinum, with bedsides and a dressing table to match – all available via My Redrow. Oversized and on trend, bedside lamps are very hotel-esque, so we’ve chosen bobble lamps with clean white shades and shadowy grey ceramic bases. We’ve also added a pink fringed velvet padded stool beneath the dressing table and an oversized skinny frame circular mirror.
“The window is framed with wall-to-wall indulgent grey woven curtains, while a velvet dove grey occasional chair sits in the bay alongside a beautiful, brushed-brass drum-style table. An ornate spherical orb brass pendant light fitting completes the space, while the room is carpeted in the luscious pile of Cormar’s Sensations range in Light Taupe.”
Go bold with your luxury bedroom designs
The main bedroom of the Leamington Lifestyle at our Swanland Heights development resembles those found in the very best of boutique hotels.
Alysha explains: “We started with a statement headboard, deeply upholstered in a neutral stone fabric and framed with a wenge border, positioned against a muted grey metallic wallpaper.
“The hotel trademark of crisp white bedlinen is complemented with a herringbone patterned throw in rich royal cobalt and a soft navy velvet cushions with a deeper navy pipe detail; a tone we’ve also picked up in the navy weave curtains.
“Again, we’ve combined textures to give the room depth. Pops of colour feature in the contrasting ochre bed linen and the smaller patterned cushion, with a touch of metallic, in the centre of the bed. This finishing touch lifts the bed’s dressing to that which you would expect to find in a high-end hotel.
“Bedsides and a matching chest from the Orion range in Platinum have been selected from My Redrow as upgrade choices, while the walk-in wardrobe is fitted beautifully with rails and shelving in Dawn Grey Walnut.
“We’ve also added two black glass oversized bedside lamps and a dramatic feature pendant light-fitting with a skinny black metal framed glass and exposed bulbs.
“All three of our featured bedrooms ooze hotel elegance and we hope they inspire our customers as to the design of their own bedrooms or guest rooms at home.”
