How To Get A Boutique Hotel Look At Home
From cosy beds to amazing designer bathrooms, boutique hotels are a great place (with all the right wow factors) to find inspiration. To get you started, here’s our take on these three beautiful and gush-worthy hotels in Singapore.
This quaint hotel will absolutely charm you! Go with unexpected furniture to quirk up your room – like these purple barber chairs. Pair these with equally unique finishings – for example, studio lights and other furniture and decor in technocolours.
MONO ROOM – POP ART
Just because you’re after the minimalist look doesn’t mean that you can’t get creative. For a minimalist approach with an artsy feel, go with white-on-white as a canvas but include fun and colourful accents to turn things around for an unexpected and graphic effect.
MONO ROOM - ORIGAMI
These rooms are really all about the clean whites that will open up any room. Go with all-white linens and upholstery, and use coloured lighting to cast the glow of your choice. The linear bands of light here create a truly architectural appeal that looks understated and effortless.
Or if you're sporting enough - go monochromatic with one colour and stick with it. Colour can have a tremendous effect psychologically, so pick a colour that evokes your desired mood. A daring and bold move, but one that will definitely be attention grabbing and bring you lots of oohs and aahs.
Use your wildest imagination so that no two rooms look alike. Recreate a scene of your favourite fairytale, or pick an out-of-this-world theme, say outer space. Get creative – anything goes for a whimsical loft! Just remember to stay within theme so you don’t lose focus.
New Majestic Hotel
Talk about a quirky hotel! We're absolutely loving New Majestic Hotel's whimsy – here, warm red lanterns help create a classy Oriental charm that also sends us a pang of nostalgia. Add a contemporary flair with your furniture so your home retains an updated and current look.
Another element that truly stands out is the wall art. If you’re artistic, go ahead and create your own mural. And when your wall is this bold, you’d want to keep the rest of your interior pretty simple, muted and decluttered so that your art takes centre stage.
Or go with a totally muted theme that is easy on the eyes. Such a room can be not only extremely elegant but also very relaxing and peaceful - just what a bedroom should be. Don’t underestimate how doing less can actually create more impact.
Want a showpiece bathroom? Standalone bathtubs are great ideas for a designer look and feel. If you have the space, go with two so that you and your partner can enjoy a relaxing soak together. For an even more intimate setting, opt for an open concept bathroom.
Despite its vintage colonial shophouse façade, Hotel 1929 greets you with a surprisingly contemporary designer atmosphere when you step inside. Here are some interior ideas worth stealing:
Update your bedroom with sleek and slender wooden bed frames that are compact. With a lean bed frame, you'll be able to make your room that much more spacious. Another idea this space lends us - cover your bathroom with interesting multi-coloured mosaic tiles to add a little pop and some character.
This room keeps it light and breezy with big windows and glass doors allow an abundance of natural light in so your room has a fresh and invigorating atmosphere for you to rest and recoup. Plus, lots of seating is a must with a delightful balcony area that you’ll love hanging out in, whether day or night.
If you have a patio, clean angular lines and amazing ambient lighting will bring your outdoor space a long way, giving it a chic and stylish appeal. Tip: Commonly overlooked, remember to consider how your lighting will lend to the overall ambience.
