Boutique hotels sprung up as an alternate to the cookie-cutter hotel chains of years past, offering its guests originality, innovation and luxurious comfort. So it comes as no surprise that the signature design of a boutique hotel guest room has become a source of inspiration. From vintage modern to streamlined art deco, travelers can recreate professionally designed, extraordinary bedroom spaces by following predominant decor elements that are consistently echoed in most high-styled boutique hotel rooms.
High Headboard: The bed is definitely the center-piece of the room which means the headboard must be immediately noticed. Whether it’s a stand-along bed with high headboard like the Patrick leather bed or a paneled headboard bed like Saturno platform bed by Mobenia, headboard dimensions are essential.
Bench at the foot of the bed: The bench is meant to offer a convenient place to put on shoes or socks, and is really extension of the bed in color, material or style. Very often bedroom manufacturers will offer a matching bench as an add-on to the bed like the case with Bonaldo’s Squaring alto bed and Squaring bench.
Sitting Area: Separate sitting area is present in most large-scale master bedrooms, however it is rarely decorated or used to its full aptitude. Using scaled furniture, congruent decor and space defining components like lighting and a rug will help identified the sitting area as a separate but linked space.
Pendants instead of sconces: Very common in boutique hotels to see pendant light fixtures that hang unexpectedly low over bedside tables instead of the more typical sconces and bedside table lamps. For a sophisticated, modern aesthetic, suspend a striking light fixture like the Topez pendnant by Cattelan Italia that hangs impressively next to the Adam leather bed.
Color scheme: in boutique hotels, the color scheme is often based on tonal harmony rather than on flashy pops of color. Symmetry and balance are the most vital when it comes to color so neutral hues are often most common. For added depth, insert subtle drama through textures that will contribute to the bedroom’s dimensional appeal.
