There is no reason for us not to copy and paste our favourite hotel styling ideas in our own bedrooms, considering we spend a third of our lives sleeping.

A bedroom should be a beautiful and comfortable place that creates a relaxing atmosphere for us to get the best possible sleep. The bed, being the main focus of the bedroom, is very important in creating a peaceful and calming ambiance.

To achieve your perfect hotel-like bed style, every aspect of the bed and its surroundings should be carefully considered. This includes the bedding, the linen we sleep on, the colour scheme of the room, and obviously the bed itself. Here are Ashpinoke’s useful bedroom ideas on how to beautifully arrange a bed.

1. The Bed Itself

The bed and frame are undoubtedly crucial elements in creating the ideal bedroom. However, when it comes to achieving a luxurious sleeping space, the options are limitless. One particular statement piece that adds an extra touch of elegance and sophistication is the four-poster bed. The grandeur of a four-poster bed is unmatched, and it can transform a simple bedroom into a lavish retreat. The wooden posts that extend upward from each corner of the bed frame create a sense of intimacy and privacy, making it an ideal choice for those who value solitude. Alternatively, a bed with a bronze or brass finish can provide a more subtle but still glamorous touch to your bedroom. The metal finishing adds a touch of sheen and elegance, making it a perfect choice for those who wish to add a bit of sophistication to their sleeping space. If you're considering investing in a four-poster bed but are hesitant to make the leap, a bed with a bronze or brass finish can be a great alternative.

2. Ensure Your Bedding is Crisp and White.

I love those hotel “pillow menu’s”. This will involve some research on your part, but may well be worth it aesthetically, as well as helping you actually sleep better. For Bigger Beds, choose the larger pillows, which can be puffed up and accessorise with smaller, coloured pillows to create contrast.

For smaller beds, you can alternate colours, sizes or textures to create an enhances aesthetic closer to art than simply function.

4. Maximise Throws & Blankets

Throws & Blankets

An elegant throw can be a stylish and functional addition to your bedroom decor. Not only does it add a cosy and luxurious feel reminiscent of a hotel room, but it also serves a practical purpose of keeping your bed linens clean. Whether you're sitting on the bed or packing, a throw can protect your bedding from dirt and wear.

When selecting a throw, it's important to consider the textures and materials to create an inviting atmosphere that appeals to your senses. Linen, for example, can provide a light and airy feel, perfect for warmer months, while cotton and wool offer a cosier, more substantial texture for colder seasons. For the ultimate indulgence, consider a throw made from cashmere, which is soft, warm, and incredibly luxurious.

In addition to textures and materials, you may also want to consider the colour and pattern of your throw. A neutral colour like beige or grey can provide a versatile and timeless look that complements any bedroom decor, while a bold pattern or bright colour can add a pop of personality and visual interest.

Overall, a well-chosen throw can elevate the look and feel of your bedroom while also serving a practical purpose. So take your time and select a throw that not only looks beautiful, but also feels comfortable and functional for your lifestyle.

5. Layer Your Fabrics

Opting for high-quality, fresh linen creates an irresistibly inviting bed arrangement. Embrace the timeless allure of soft bed linens and crisp cottons, which offer both comfort and breathability, ensuring a cocooning sensation that never goes out of style.

Layer in a captivating array of colours, textures, and patterns. Play with the harmony or contrast between them. If your bedding is linen, consider adding a cotton quilt at the foot of the bed to introduce an extra layer of dimension, experiment with tone-on-tone bedding for captivating interplays of colour and texture.

Combine various patterns, such as florals and solids with stripes, in an assortment of sizes and scales. Strive for a harmonious amalgamation of sheets, quilts, duvets, covers, or coverlets that seamlessly integrate with the bedroom's colour scheme, curtains, rugs, and other decor elements. This cohesive approach will tie the entire room together, resulting in a confidently curated and visually stunning space.

6. Make a Statement with Your Headboard

Use your headboard to make a statement about yourself and your style. An art piece to distract from the bed, which is usually the centre of attention. Be aware of striking a good balance between drawing attention and being overwhelming. It shouldn’t ostentatiously fill the entire wall, so consider the proportions of the bedroom the bed itself, and the furniture surrounding it. Make sure it all works together.

The headboard is all about the choice of textiles and materials used. To make it stand out, it should have a distinctive shape. Consider combining a traditional shape with a contemporary fabric to create a modern aesthetic. A well-made feature headboard is not only luxurious, but also has longevity.

7. Create a Gilded Sanctuary

For the added feeling of luxury, consider how Gold can work on the bed and on your bedside table in the form of lamps, decorative bowls, mirrors or figurines for decor. Gold has the unique ability to exude both luxury and comfort, making it an excellent choice to elevate the ambiance of any space.

In this xxx Range, the design has incorporated gold through detailed metal patterning of xxx on sideboards, chests and cabinets. Gold accents add a touch of glamour and opulence to the bedroom, creating an elegant space. Although gold is a bold and attention-grabbing colour, it also complements and enhances other colours in the room.

8. Don’t Forget the Bedside Table

Styling your bed can be an art, and the bedside table is a key element to consider. Choosing a bedside table with the right proportions and storage capacity is essential. The width of the bedside table should complement the bed and be as wide as possible, if space permits.

Proper lighting is also important. Table lamps provide warm and ambient lighting for the start or end of the day. However, make sure not to overcrowd the space with an oversized lamp, and keep the intensity of the light low to avoid excessive brightness.

For couples, get matching bedside tables for double beds. Mirrored night stands can create a calming symmetry beside the bed and provide ample space to store personal belongings. Trust your taste and get creative to make a cosy and stylish bedroom setup.

9. Pick a Colour

Simplify your colour selection, but make it personal. Opt for earthy tones and soft neutrals for a soothing and serene ambiance, giving your space a luxurious hotel-quality touch. These classic and elegant shades surpass overly vibrant and bold colours. Begin with a foundational colour and gradually incorporate similar shades to create depth and harmony without any colour conflicts.
