Capitalize on Cushions

Mix up the textures on your bed and go for the highest quality possible. Think 400-thread sheets in linen or Italian cotton. Go for as many pillows as possible, at least four, or large European pillows.

Monochromatic Tone

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. For a cocoon-like effect, paint the ceiling the same color as the walls or a 20 percent toned-down version of the wall shade.

Reading Room

The best hotel rooms invite you to immediately plop down and relax. They do that with functional, comfy and stylish furnishings. An easy to emulate look is the padded headboard, perfect for propping up to read or watch TV. But what good is it if you have no place for your drink? Nightstands, matching or otherwise, are a must for either side of the bed. A bench at the foot of the bed is also a nice touch, anchoring the bed and providing a place to sit to put on shoes.
