Annie on Bringing Hotel Style Home

I travel A LOT!  And because my mission is to make every day as beautiful and life affirming as possible, I REALLY care about where I sleep. (Not to mention that I have been in the bedding business for over 20 years).  I spend real time researching (and staying in) hotels.

 

Here’s what I’ve found: a great hotel room envelopes you and answers all your personal needs and in the best cases, educates and entertains your aesthetic.

 

A great hotel room gives you that “aaah” feeling, so you can finally relax and give yourself permission to just…watch a great movie, read a much put-off book, to actually have a moment to be in the moment!

A great hotel room has a great bathroom—more “aaah”– so you feel like you’re at your favorite spa.

 

Some of my favorite hotels rooms are courtesy of Kit Kemp and her company Firmdale Hotels:

Key Elements to Happy Hotel Style:

 

1. A beautifully made bed with crisp white sheets, a lofty duvet and an assortment of sleeping pillows from soft to firm.

Hello Suzanne,

You know I don’t know who the artist is on that piece but we sell it so I certainly should! Here is the link to it on our site if you are interested in purchasing it. I love this piece and plan to use it in my Palm Springs bedroom.
