It’s the last day of our staycation together. But don’t worry- we have a feeling your staycation style will have lasting effects. Take time for one last wind down in your own cozy bed & breakfast bedroom. Here’s a quick design guide to help you make that happen. We’ve got the beds! You bring the breakfast!
Textiles – Comfort is king here. Thick, shag rugs, textured throws and soft comforters will make you feel cozy and relaxed. Everything from the upholstery to the mattress must scream “relaxing” (or whisper “relaxing” – apparently screaming is frowned upon at B&B’s)
Furniture – Choose furniture pieces that remind you of a quaint cottage retreat or a B&B. The Cottage Retreat poster bed is the perfect excuse to snooze a little longer. Also, pieces with distressed finishes such as the Lille accent table shown above give your design a “collected” feel.
Botanicals – Fill your space with something naturally pretty. Sounds simple enough, right? Botanicals are often left out of design, but they shouldn’t be. Flowers are beautiful to look at and they automatically bring in the element of life. Hydrangeas are perfect for a B&B retreat – and they don’t even have to be real. Shhhh….your secret is safe with us. Go for faux flower power.
