How to style your bedroom like a luxury resort

Your bedroom should always be a place of relaxation and soothing energy, and what's more zen than a luxury resort? Check out our stylist Drew's ten quick tips for making your bedroom into the haven you deserve, then read on for more ideas on how to style your bedroom like a tropical retreat.

1. Start with a statement bedhead

Give the room instant wow factor with a visually interesting bedhead, preferably in rattan for that island-time feel. A linen slipcover bedhead also creates a relaxed, softer look if that's more your style.

2. Layer the bed with linen

Keep your bed linen fresh to the touch and super-soft with quality linen sheets, pillowcases and quilt cover. It'll not only make slipping into bed feel like a dream, but will also wear with grace, giving you that beautifully draped look every day.

3. Mix cushion colours for comforting contrast

Neutral colours such as oatmeal, light grey or a subtle sage contrast well to keep the room feeling fresh without being a complete whiteout. The subtle colour shift allows the eyes to rest and makes you feel at ease. For a little extra fun, add in a cushion with an understated pattern or palm frond motif in light colours.


4. Add hints of dark colours to keep it modern

Keep it current with the addition of black or deep green elements with the bedside tablerug patterns or in scattered decor. This will elevate the look and keep the space from looking dated or kitsch.

5. Don't forget the classic tropical frond

Dried fauna makes for easy bedside styling that needs zero maintenance, making it both classy and convenient, and will also pair beautifully with any rattan elements. You can also opt for a live or faux plant to add a touch more greenery, allowing the room to breathe and feel light.

6. Perch a fancy water vessel on the nightstand

Go ahead and treat yourself to a gorgeous glass water bottle that'll have you feeling like the epitome of health when you need a drink in the middle of the night. You can also opt for a sculptural jug or carafe with clean lines paired with a gorgeous highball glass.


7. Mix ceramic and glass vases and ornaments

Keep your decor simple and minimalist, with a mixture of glass and neutral-coloured ceramics for a classy touch.

8. Include texture underfoot

Pick a rug with a luscious pile that'll have you wanting to run your feet over it again and again, so hopping out of bed in the morning feels like a breeze. If that's not for you, a natural fibre rug will make the space look coastal and will stand the test of time. 

9. Bring in organic timber 

Organic timber will enhance the laid-back feel of the room, giving you that effortlessly styled look. A simple wooden accent stool or side table, decorative ladder shelf or picture frames will inject instant calm.

10. Finish it off with resort-ready reading

There's nothing like losing yourself in a good book on holiday, so keep a stack ready and make time for a long, relaxing read in your new resort-style bedroom.
