Home interiors is one of my up and coming passions now I’m getting a little older, and in my opinion my taste is developing greatly (like a fine wine).
Spending a large majority of my time travelling from luxury hotel to boutique hotel I’ve become somewhat of an expert. Especially, when it comes to the little touches that make a bedroom a relaxing haven. And that’s what it’s sole purpose is, right?
Regardless of the decor, which of course, is extremely important, one of the most important factors in a bedroom is the bed linen.
For me, I feel unsettled if the linen isn’t brilliant white. Highly coloured and patterned bed linen sends me into almost a fear. I don’t get a good night sleep in a patterned bed set.
The devil is in the details
You’re looking to create a luxury hotel-style bedroom you should always opt for white linen. I do, however, think that small piping details (or a waffle) do add a certain je ne sais quoi!
When deciding on bed linen have a look at the thread count. Thread count refers to the number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. Generally, the higher the thread count, the softer the sheet. And the more likely it will wear well-or even soften-over time. Good sheets range anywhere from 200 to 800, although you’ll occasionally see numbers over 1,000.
The Lyndon Company produces high-quality bed linen made from 100% cotton giving a warm snug sleep in the winter and cool comfortable night in the summer.
This The Lyndon Company Montpellier design is an impressive 220 Thread Count Sateen cotton duvet cover set with bourdon stitching detail to give it that 5-star hotel finish.
You also want to ensure that you buy bed linen as a set and keep the sets together and most importantly wash them together so they stay the same white. It never does any harm when washing to add a whitener to keep those covers brilliant white.
In my opinion, you can never have too many cushions accessorising your bed. A mixture of square and rectangular scatter cushions are a great way to create a luxury hotel look. By using rich fabrics such as velvet and again waffle, alongside cushions with a substantial filling, you’re heading to creating sheer opulence in your own bedroom.
Finish off your look with a throw, from faux fur or knitted to thick padded, choose a throw in a neutral or accentuating colour to really complete the luxury bed look. Have some fun with the positioning of your throws or use two, with different textures to create a totally different look.
