The best boutique-style hotels are the epitome of sophistication and packed with decorating details designed to refresh and pamper you. If you want to create this elegant, cocoon-like feel at home, there are some tricks of the trade you need to learn. This bed is layered with plush pillows of various sizes, for example. Mix up the textures on your bed and go for the highest quality possible. Think 400-thread sheets in linen or Italian cotton and as many pillows as possible, at least four sleeping pillows or other large European pillows. The key: Keep the room’s look neutral and elegant a la Armani. A monochromic scheme is often used in hotel rooms to set a quiet, sophisticated tone. To create that at home, pick one primary color and one related coordinating color. And to create a cocoon-like effect, paint the ceiling same color as the walls or a 20 percent toned-down version of the wall shade.
