In addition to room service and a stocked minibar, bed is our favorite pastime in a hotel. What can you not love with too many pillows and carefully selected sheet sets? If you want to feel like waking up in a hotel every morning, our expert designers have these tips for creating a hotel bed.
There really isn’t a maximum number of pillows you can put on your bed. Do you want an extra half dozen? Do it! If it gets tough, just toss your extra pillows on the floor. But air on the safe side: this is the only place in your home where there is more.

If you’re looking to style a hotel bed, consider a tufted headboard. And if you want to end the day reading or watching TV in bed on your Saturday, a tufted headboard is perfect for sitting in bed. Check out what we look like in the chic, personalized Upper East Side luxury condo.
Canopy bed frame
Or when If you want to give your bed a luxurious, regal feel, consider swapping out your current bed frame for a canopy. In this penthouse with a view of Central Park West we have set up a two-tone four-poster bed by Dune. This not only gives the bed a higher feeling, but also draws the view up and creates the illusion of higher ceilings.
Your bedroom should have a calming, calm, and relaxed atmosphere. So don’t disturb your sleep with bright colors or flashy patterns. More than any other room in the house, the bedroom is where neutral colors are used. But don’t stick with just one shade or material. Combine neutral colors for a sophisticated, layered look.

Less can be more
When styling a hotel bed, you should know that less is more, except when it comes to pillows. And if you want to give free rein to your minimalist streak, there is no better place than your bed. A white duvet, an accented pillow, and a wooden frame always look chic and classic. Check out what we looked like in this Montauk vacation home.
If you want to end the day with a book or a magazine, illuminate your bed. Place a small work light next to your bed and a larger light in the corner for a base layer.

Swap your sheets
When it comes to a hotel bed, keep at least two sets that you swap out seasonally. A lighter, more breathable set is perfect for the summer months, while a thicker, heat retentive set is best for the winter. Check out the summer linens we’ve added to this Upper East Side beach vacation.
