Boutique hotels are one of the first places we look to for bedroom inspiration- packed with decorating details to refresh any room. With luxurious linens and a whole host of conveniences, it’s no wonder we sleep so well when on vacay. Check out some of our favorite hotel style bedrooms, and take away some tricks of the trade for your own sophisticated boudoir.
Areias do Seixo Hotel- Lisbon, Portugal
Our first stop on the map is the Seixo Hotel, in Lisbon. Just a short walk from the Praia da Mexilhoeira beach, this eco-friendly hotel with cement floors and pebble walls uses geothermal energy and solar power.
Our first choice? The Land Room. Talk about magical. The ethereal, fairy-like feel of this room gives us a fluttering heart, or is that the heart mobile hanging above the bed? With driftwood accents from the nearby beaches and a textured bed in shades of oatmeal, this charming abode screams cozy.
If you'd like to stick with nature, but add a little sophistication with a masculine feel, get inspired by the Tree Rooms. A tree-like canopy frame sits on top of a polished cement pedestal, creating a modern organic feel. And, well, you know how we feel about circular mirrors, so we had to stick in a photo of the earthy bathroom.
Table on Ten - Bloomville, NY Catskills
The Catskills- the getaway hub for NY creatives who need a little nature in lieu of the concrete jungle. And Table on Ten, a refurbished 1860's house on Route 10, provides just that- with mismatched furniture and antiques creating a rustic, relaxed retreat.
Owned by a carpenter and a chef, it's only natural that they would open a homey retreat that serves delicious meals. Enlisting the help of an Amsterdam based interior designer, the result is three primitive private bedrooms above the cafe. With handmade furnishings, simple organic bedding, beautiful natural light and a rustic copper bathtub- this room exudes the simplicity and charm of countryside living.
San Giorgio Hotel - Mykonos, Greece
Is your ideal morning routine waking up to picturesque white houses and sweeping views of the sea? Then the San Giorgio will do the trick, with its whitewashed buildings, poolside hammocks and striking rocky beach. Melding the carefree finesse of the '60s bohemian life with a down-to-earth “gypset” approach, how could you not feel relaxed?
Natural wood furnishings and wicker accents combined with tiled floors, turkish towels and embroidered bedding bring life's simple pleasures together with a cultural aesthetic. Seaside living with an ethnic twist- but definitely replicable here in Southern California.
Hotel Monteverdi - Tuscany, Italy
A renewed collection of three exquisitely restored rental villas and a 12 room boutique hotel in what was once a cobbled medieval village. Homespun elegance at it's best in this ideal Tuscan romance.
The bones of the room are classically Tuscan: stone walls, wood-beam ceilings and views from every window. But the highly styled and designed with gauzy drapes, recessed lighting, modern furnishings and natural light are all things that can be emulated in your own boudoir.
