5 Design Secrets from The World’s Best Hotels

Nowadays travelers tend to explore more home-away-from-home hotels. Hotel’s interiors are now adjusting and moving away from the more conventional and business style public spaces to interiors that are evocative of warm delightful living rooms with a luxury and cultured feel. The Hotel lobby is the first thing that you notice when you visit a Hotel, is the first impact that you have and it can be great or bad. Is very important for the Hotels to concentrate in their entryways and get inspired with magnificent lobby décor ideas.

Today we’ll share with you 5 design secrets from the world’s best hotels.

Take the Shortcut to Luxury with Accessories

One of the simple (and most affordable) ways to get the high-end, collected-over-time look of a boutique hotel is with the accessories you use. Choose items that bring in at least three textures in the room: one plush, one sleek and one natural. Cashmere throws—particularly in not-too-cutesy patterns like herringbone—and Lucite trays that catch the light are two of Jeffers’ go-to additions.

Go for the Most Drama in the Smallest Spaces

If all-white bathrooms read more “bland” than “spa-like” to you, steal this decorating idea from the model bathroom in the Solaris Residences in Vail, Colorado: Cover the walls in a low-contrast, nature-inspired wallpaper. Vertical patterns, like the Lee Jofa tree wallpaper the Solaris uses, emphasize the walls’ height, making the ceilings look taller, explains designer Susan Moon. As long as the colors are all in similar, muted shades—think pale gray and blue, not sunshine-yellow and burnt orange—the room won’t look busy and jarring.


Add a Different Kind of Mirror

We’ve all heard that the bigger the mirror, the more spacious a room feels, but modern hotels are going beyond hanging them on the walls.  To make the room appear even bigger, choose side tables that are leggier. The more space you can see under and around the table, the less space it seems to take up.


Pick Lighting That Doubles as Art

Many people worry about choosing the perfect painting to hang on the walls, which is why some hotels skip it altogether and hang a bold chandelier in the lobby. These lights do double-duty, brightening the room while catching your attention. If you’re looking for an overhead light, try a rock crystal style over the classic chandelier or uber-trendy star pendant.



Upgrade Your Lampshades 

hotelPart of the feel-good experience at a hotel is making sure you look good, too. At Congress Hall in Cape May, New Jersey, the lampshades in the bedroom are lined in pink silk to cast a soft, warm light. “It makes your skin glow when you’re in bed,” says Colleen Bashaw, the resort’s interior designer. She recommends painting the inside of an ivory paper lampshade a pale pink, like Benjamin Moore’s Ballet Slippers.
