Can we make our own bedrooms as luxe as our favorite hotels?
As I write this post, I’m on a flight back to New York City from Milwaukee. I spent the last few days visiting the Fox Cities area as a guest of the Fox Cities, Wisconsin convention and visitors bureau.
It was a fun visit, complete with chocolate bar-making, cheese carving and wine tasting – just to name a few – but among my favorite aspects of just about any trip is the super-luxe (super big!) hotel bed.
This trip, I was hosted by the Best Western Premier Bridgwood in Neenah, Wisconsin, where my basic room offered a cloud-like king-sized bed with many pillows and a spa robe and chocolates upon my arrival each evening.
It’s the little things like that — no matter how exotic or quaint our destination – that deliver the attraction of travel. Especially for those of us who are forced to live in cramped apartments with small bedrooms, the simple luxuries we desire become rare commodities.
Except they don’t have to be. This week, I worked on a bit of research for CompletelyYou.com on how to take our own boring bedrooms and turn them into everything we love about our favorite hotels. It’s a bit feng shui, a bit creativity — and I’d love your tips as well! Check out my piece: Create Your Dream Bedroom, and please feel free to share your own input below!
Granted, we’ll never have a home bedroom with free high-speed Internet access, complimentary hot breakfast buffet and newspaper each morning (unless we move back in with our moms!), nor a huge outside hot tub — but a great mattress? A room free of clutter? Great lighting and soft, restorative music? Yes, that we can emulate. That we can do.
What’s your tips for making your own bedroom feel like a luxe escape?
