Life In A Luxury Hotel

Life In A Luxury Hotel

I recently took a small vacation to Naples Florida with my husband back in January of this year. We stayed at the wonderful Ritz-Carlton Resort.
As soon you enter the lobby you could tell why this is a five-star resort

The interiors were pure luxury. The design of the hotel was not your typical Florida hotel design. They didn’t use what you would expect of pastel beach colors. The only flamingo pink I could found was in the gift shop.
The design of the hotel was more of my style of new traditional chic. Formal furniture that has clean lines, with comfort in mind, the use of luxury fabrics, and beautiful lighting. Always a little sparkle.
Want to be inspired to have luxury hotel interiors? Here is way to incorporate in your home.

Keep it simple don’t over clutter the room with furnishing and accessories.

As a designer, I recommend to achieve the new traditional style that the furniture is a classic silhouette with new details.

For seating furniture, it’s about comfort and clean lines.

I will tell you that lighting is always importing. I love to add a little sparkle. With finishes and details for example, crystals in chandeliers, metal finishes, and glass bases or shades. The sparkle makes the room sings.

When it comes to window treatments new traditional style is not heavy drapery and eliminate swag valence. Keep it simple.

I love how they built a valence around the window treatment, so you cannot see the hardware.
This was one of the only Florida details that I could find in the resort with stationary shutters.

In the bath can we say marble. The marble has a glossy finish that adds a little sparkle. A glam mirror with backlighting will make anybody look gorgeous. If you have room to add a water closet for privacy, how luxurious is that?

Let’s talk about the bed, I think the biggest trend I’ve been seeing for the past five years is beautiful oversize upholster headboards. Wouldn’t you love to have breakfast in bed delivered to you this bed?

Luxury living doesn’t have to be an expensive hotel vacation. You can also have that five-star hotel design in your home.

I must thank the staff at the Ritz-Carlton Naples Florida resort. The staff at the resort was so friendly, polite, professional, and always had a smile. They treated us like we were the most important guest that was staying at the hotel.
Special thanks to Danielle Travis the public relations manager at the resort for allowing me access to fresh room for my photos.

Romance In The Bedroom

Day of love is just around the corner and I can give some ideas on how to have a romantic bedroom decor in your love nest. These simple steps will add a romantic setting.

Lighting is one of the most important aspects with a soft glow that makes it soothing and romantic. Don’t use harsh lighting from an overhead lighting fixture. Try a table lamp or even a chandelier these are the perfect ambiance lighting.

The soft color palette in blues, creams, pastels, grays, and for a fun dramatic style why not all black room. Avoid strong, bold colors like red, orange, and chartreuse green. Even though red is always connected to love, it’s too strong for a romantic bedroom.

The center of the bedroom is the bed. A cozy bed is a wonderful way to start with. Here’s are a few bed styles that say, love, upholstered headboard, poster bed with a canopy with sheer fabric, and sleigh bed give you a feeling of being embraced with headboard and foot board. These beds will speak the language of love.

What makes the bed even a more special love nest is the bedding. Envelope yourself in a beautiful comforter in a soft fabric. When it comes to the bedding its all about the layers that make a pretty bed. Just don’t through a comforter on the bed but add pillows as part of the layers. Try using pillows of different fabrics, laces, tassels, and some inspirational quotes on the pillows of love.

To add romance to a room with another layer is adding wallpaper/wall covering. Wallpaper can be so romantic with color and patterns. Wall covering is when using fabric to cover the walls and it can shut out the outside world as a sound bare when use padding between the wall and fabric. Wall covering gives a sense of serenity.

Window treatments are just as important to the finished room if you use soft fabric for shades or long panels. They have a function to control the lighting in the room and sound. Besides having a function, they can also be romantic just like the pillows with their fabrics, laces, and trim.

The bedroom is the first place you start your day and it’s the last place you end your day. So why not make a bedroom give add serenity and love to a romantic setting. If you are married or in a relationship want to draw someone in your life make the bedroom your place for love.  Set the mood with these simple and easy tips.
