Let your imagination and creativity flow, rise to the challenge and prepare for a great night of sleep.
1. HOW TO MAKE THE BED SO IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL
Take your time choosing and tending the bed in your bedroom with smooth, comfortable sheets. Our Housekeepers spread the sheets out pulling the upper hem to the top edge of the mattress leaving 20 inches of flat sheet untucked at the top of the bed while smoothing any creases. Then fold the exposed top of the sheet down over the topper, and tuck the sides in snugly. Finish your bed-styling with pillows and sweet dreams!
2. FIND YOUR PRIVATE CORNER IN YOUR BEDROOM
Our bedrooms are like little sanctuaries where we retreat to relax, read, reflect, and rest – Try to find or create private space for this in your bedroom.
3. CREATE YOUR BESPOKE TURNDOWN SERVICE
Make it your hallmark before a good night sleep. A nightly delight like chocolates on your pillow, a good book, a carafe of water by the bedside table, a fresh pair of fluffy sleepers are all an opportunity to indulge in your favorite hotel-inspired bedtime touches.
4. YOUR SEASONAL SCENTS
Lighting scented candles in the evening and before going to bed is a fine habit and the perfect anticipation of the fresh aromas of spring flowers , fruits and herbs such as jasmine, rose, citrus, lavender. Choose your favorite Spring aromas if you are in the Northern Hemisphere or cosy Autumnal ones if you are in Southern latitudes and enjoy a blissful night sleep.
5. USE YOUR CUSHIONS TO SET THE STYLE AND MOOD OF YOUR ROOM
Change your bedroom cushions with the seasons and experiment with color palettes, textures and designs – be as playful or as subdued as you like!
6. DECORATE YOUR SPACE
We are partial to Art and Design as one can attest in all our guest-rooms, but whether minimalist interiors or a decorated bedroom suit your mood and aesthetic sensibilities it’s important you surround yourself with things that make you happy, feel comfortable with and inspire you.
7. STYLE YOUR BEDSIDE TABLE
Proportions, the right choice of objects and practicality are all worth considering when dressing your bedside table. Space allowing, room for a carafe of water, the alarm clock, your favorite night time read, a little tray for your jewelry are some of our must-haves by the bed.
8. SHOWCASE YOUR ART PIECES
Whether heirlooms pieces, prints, paintings or artisanal works acquired in your travels, why not experimenting re-arranging placement of these objects curating a selection to display in your bedroom? Our preference at Derby Hotels Collection is to decorate the space above headboards with eclectic paintings.
