At French Bedroom, we love a luxurious bed. It is so often the focal point of the bedroom, the first port of call for a breathtaking boudoir. If you’ve recently returned from a blissful summer retreat and are yearning for that plush hotel style at home, you’re in the right place. It’s easier than you think to make a bed look luxurious.
The FB stylists are here to share their secrets on how to make your bed look truly luxurious and get that prestigious hotel feel for your bedroom.
Dress Your French Bed in Luxury Bedding
If it is the hotel aesthetic you are aiming for, these rooms all have one thing in common – a perfectly made bed, dressed in luxury bedding brands. For the height of refinement, we recommend going all-white. Choose designer bedding in quality materials, such as 100% cotton or linen. Our Absolute 1000 Collection White Cotton Bed Linen has a thread count of 1000 threads per square inch, guaranteeing a soft and luxurious feel against your skin, as well as a visually stunning aesthetic.
Another way to make your bedroom feel luxurious has to do with establishing a morning routine. Get into the habit of making your bed every morning. Not only is it a tip that sleep experts espouse, but it will also have a positive impact on your mental health. We all see things through a more positive lens when we are well-rested mentally and physically. Start today and see the difference it makes!
Get Comfy With Cushions
Here at French Bedroom, we love to adorn beds with elegant cushions to achieve a truly sumptuous and striking bedroom look. To make your bed look luxurious, layer your cushions according to size. Prop your pillows against the headboard and overlay with a generous number of decorative cushions, in decreasing height order.
Pro tip: If you don’t have the space for oodles of cushions, or you simply prefer a different aesthetic, you can still achieve a luxurious look by overfilling a couple of throw pillows. There’s nothing like plush, plumped cushions to emulate the most prestigious of hotels.
Declutter Your Bedside
We’re all guilty of an untidy bedside from time to time. Books or magazines we have started and then forgotten, pairs of glasses we can never find, jewellery shed in haste at the end of a long day. One thing we know luxury is not synonymous with, is clutter. Take some time to re-organise your bedside and keep just the essentials visible, with lesser used items tucked away in a drawer. You are then free to accessorise with discernment – a timeless bedside table lamp or delicate artwork are prime pieces to consider for a luxurious bedroom.
Learn To Layer
No luxurious bed is complete without a throw or a blanket to finish the look. Blankets and bedspreads can set the tone for your bedroom and be the base of the overall room design and feel. A luxury throw will add the finishing touch to your French bed; opt for a soft quilted bedspread for the cooler months and an ultra-decadent silk blanket in the summer. Layer on top of the duvet or sheet, either spread across the whole bed, or styled at the end of the bed for a relaxed yet refined look.
Add Some Art
Bedrooms are often overlooked for artwork; it is a private space, and so we are more inclined to display photographs or pieces of sentimental value. However, a considered piece or two of wall art can elevate the status of a room instantly. Experiment with statement artwork over the headboard, or incorporate subtle pieces into the room’s aesthetic. Our Tender Hands Wall Art displays the simple yet impactful gesture of holding hands, and can be hung in any room. The statement linework, captured in a black frame, means this print will go beautifully against any background.
Invest In A Quality French Bed
We believe that the starting point for a luxurious bedroom is always that luxurious French bed. It's the main focal point; the masterpiece; that first stamp of luxury for your breathtaking bedroom. Simply put, a top-quality French-style bed is a prerequisite for any boudoir. All our luxury beds and bed frames are handmade to the highest quality for the utmost luxury, style, and comfort. Whether you favour elegant upholstered beds or rustic rattan beds, you deserve the bed of your dreams.
