A boutique hotel décor can be easily achieved by adding some distinct and individualistic design touches to your home. Exclusivity and uniqueness define boutique home décor with every piece thoughtfully picked and assembled. Read on to discover creative elements that can be used to make your home spacious and welcoming, just like a boutique hotel.

Layer your lighting

If your ceiling is high enough, opt for a dropped chandelier. For lower ceilings, there are plenty of stunning light fittings that will add the wow factor. A top tip is to add at least three layers of lighting per room. Overhead pendant lights can create drama, or provide reflective shimmer. Add decorative wall lights and table lamps to adjust the mood of the space, according to the time of day and weather.

Luxurious upholstery

In bedrooms, carpets feel far more relaxing than tiles or wooden boards. Stick to more traditional carpets or large rugs, a long-piled rug can bring a subtle softness to a space. Throws, cozy rugs, and textured cushions paired with crisp white sheets are a foolproof combination for a serviced apartment or boutique homestay look.

Personal touches

Boutique hotels are all about bespoke interiors, so add some extra personality with the help of curated art pieces placed on ivory walls, and bespoke headboards with quirky fabrics and prints. Sprinkle some extra magic with elements of brass and marble. The cool, clean surface of the marble works perfectly with brass finishes giving a feel of modern luxury. Invest in a vintage bar cart and some good-quality glassware and crockery. Add a pop of colour with plants or a few well-placed vases that bring an instant feeling of well-being and lift the spirits. A stack of stylish books is another chic way to fill any empty shelf space. Placing a water body like a water fountain or an urn with some fresh flowers and floating candles at the entrance can transform any drab area into a cozy and elegant space.

Scents & Sensibilities

Another easy way to create warm, welcoming boutique interiors is with your favorite scents. Whether you invest in a diffuser and fill it with delicious oils, or prefer scented candlelight, a heavenly aroma is essential. Some thick white monogrammed bath towels along with some good quality toiletries to your bath routine will teleport you to your favorite boutique hotel.
