Bring chic into the bedroom with one of the hottest interior’s trends for AW13, hotel luxe.

Fusing together elegance and comfort, this look is a must-have for any interior junkie.

Combine pink tones in your bedding with rich greys for a sumptuous look in the boudoir.

Choose a bed with a statement headboard, nothing too brash, but just enough to make it the focal point of your room, and design around it.

Barker and Stonehouse has a beautiful Vienna bedframe which will suit this look perfectly. Its button detailing and padded finish, allows it to stand out and make a statement while also being incredibly stylish.

Dress the bed in enticing lilac toned cushions or perky pink throws with a hint of sequin to add that je-ne-sais-quoi.

Keep the wall colour fairly neutral, cream or mink paint will work great in this environment. Why not try Farrow and Ball paint in Dimity? This allows you to be more playful with your accessories and won’t detract away from the bed, or make the room look too busy.

Add French-esque storage furniture to help build on this look. After all, the French know how to do elegance! Barker and Stonehouse’s Claudette wardrobe is perfect for this trend.

Remember, simple lines on your furniture will suit this look the most. The Abilene one drawer unit from Barker and Stonehouse is a prime example of this. The curved lines allow for the womanly element to be present in this look.


When choosing your accessories pick something that harks back to an earlier era. Anything from old maps or detailed vintage prints with a chunky frame work well on walls.

Lighting is also key – make sure it isn’t too harsh as it can hamper the sultry feel to this trend. Add a copper and brass element to the room – a colour which is huge in interiors and fashion this season – with the Ball copper table light from Barker and Stonehouse.

The copper will complement the dark bed frame and neutral walls perfectly by adding a much-needed metallic pop of colour.

Finally, build up the room by adding sumptuous armchairs or a rug at the base of the bed. Keep these to the same colour palette as the rest of the room to either match the bed or the accessories.

For that extra five star feel, add tea lights on your windowsill and candelabras on the bedside table. Candles are a great addition to any room, especially when you’re creating a sultry look.
