Bring the essence of a boutique hotel to your own living room by choosing luxurious fabrics and finishes. A velvet sofa is a great place to start and modern fabrics are more hardwearing and easy to clean than ever before. A rich colour palette, such as emerald greens and golds will elevate your living space.

The bedroom is likely the first thing you think of when thinking about boutique hotels. The key to styling your bedroom in this manner is making it feel special and storing away as many items as possible so you are left with a clean blank canvas.
Built in wardrobes are a great option – if not, keeping your clothes stored away in another room is probably the way to go with this look.
Invest in high quality bedding and cushions to make your bed feel extra special and keep things symmetrical if possible for a put together and uniform look.

Kitchens aren't the easiest space to incorporate this trend however there are definitely ways to successfully do so. If you're not planning on renovating your entire kitchen it's a good idea to focus on the moveable furniture as well as your choice of accessories.
If you have a breakfast bar or overhanging worktop, grab some boutique hotel-style stools, which will instantly luxe up your kitchen – brass and velvet are popular finishes. Small changes you can make are investing in new cutlery and glassware which feel a little more special and bespoke.
