I love a hotel that doesn't play it too safe when it comes to decor, but getting the design just right can be a tricky thing. When I travel, I want a space that feels relaxing but also has a point of view. Most importantly, I want a space that inspires me!
Lately, I've noticed that the most dramatic decor in hotel rooms is coming from one place: the bed. Yes, statement beds are back, and in such a good way that I had to share a few current favorites with you!
The first two hotels follow one simple formula: woven textures + statement wallpaper = a recipe for success.
I'll just tell you right now that out of all four of these hotels, the Hotel Doisy is my personal favorite. Why? It uses two of my most favorite textile patterns, and my favorite color scheme: pink, tan, black and white. I'll probably be dedicating a whole other post to this hotel in the near future, but for now, let's talk about the BEDS.
You know I love me some woven texture, and these headboards are killing it with their unique shape and stripe details! While there's definitely a tropical vibe, it doesn't go too far or too literal, keeping things extra chic.
Next up, the lovely and inventive Hotel Panache. What I love about this place is that every room is unique, but the bed frame stays the same. The wallpaper gets switched up in each bedroom, giving them all a different vibe. Also, love those corner mirrors and the old-fashioned phones!
If statement woven or cane beds are your jam, then here are a few we suggest for your next bedroom makeover...
1. woven bed with stripe detail from serena & lily | 2. black cane bed from cb2 | 3. classic rattan from serena & lily | 4. seagrass and black wood from williams-sonoma home | 5. rattan headboard bed from cb2 | 6. simple cane bed from pier1
First off, if you are looking for a bed more akin to the maximalist style at the Hotel Panache, look no further than the Caterina Bed from Anthropologie, which I didn't include in this roundup because (honesty hour) I couldn't photoshop the background out of it. (Sidenote: Anthropologie, you kill me with your lack of straightforward product shots).
Secondly, if you are in the market for a bed in this style, you have to have to check out the last bed from Pier1. It is on sale and a major steal. So much so that I want to get it for our guest room, but my husband has banned me from doing any more room makeovers beyond the ones we already have on our plate.
Now, on to the next trend! Rounded headboards. And yes, I'm a fan!
Sexiest hotel award goes to the Hotel Grands Boulevards where the color palette is giving me heart palpitations and the draped beds are a genius ode to history. Basically you can feel like a modern Marie Antoinette while basking in the richness of velvet headboards and mood lighting. Also, the rest of the decor in the hotel is just gorgeous.
We might be headed to Paris this fall, and if we go this hotel would likely be at the top of our list! If not, well, I may just have to borrow this look and go for some jewel-toned linen drapes around our bed.
Last but not least, we have the pared-down charm and quirk of the Hotel Bienvenue. But their beds are worth noting for a few trend-setting qualities: their beautiful curves and the asymmetrical style. If you really wanted to get the look yourself, you could purchase a headboard one size larger than your bed, and offset the frame. I kinda dig it.
This super fresh take on French Deco style is probably one of the more realistic in a way. It doesn't seem as extravagant to copy! And speaking of copying... here are our favorites for this style:
1. white and brass bed by cb2 | 2. scalloped channel velvet bed on One Kings Lane | 3. beige rounded corners bed on lulu & georgia | 4. curved blue velvet bed by anthropologie | 5. tufted white velvet bed by cb2 | 6. bold blue bed by consort design
When it comes to the curved headboard camp, I'm of the 'go big or go home' mindset, so I'm really digging that channeled pale aqua bed with scalloped style. It feels like a mermaid bed! Oh to be 15 again. I'd totally go all theme room on that thing.
Which is your favorite??
