It’s summer time. Everyone wants to get away for a vacation or a fun trip of some sort. Luckily, I was able to go on a trip this summer (next week- yaaay!) but I don’t always get to every summer. Sometimes it’s money, sometimes it’s work getting in the way, but some years I just can’t make it. If you can’t get away this year, then why not bring the hotel luxury into your own home? Everyone deserves their own slice of paradise!
1 | Invest in quality bedding. This includes sheets, pillows, and a down comforter.
2 | Add in the little details: towels, bathrobes, candles, and a good book!
3 | Take some quality you time. Unplug from the rest of the world, and treat yourself to a relaxing escape.
Invest In Quality Bedding
Whenever I stay in a nice hotel I absolutely love diving into that big bed for the first time and inhaling the fresh smell of luxury linens. It’s quite nice having a pile of pillows to sleep on and a deliciously crisp duvet to envelop yourself in. The first step to creating your own hotel paradise at home is to invest in quality bedding.
While hotel style bedding can get pretty expensive, there are many affordable alternatives that will achieve the same crisp look. Whatever your budget may be, remember to live a little. Invest in a nicer set than you might think you need. The point here is to add some luxury into your day to day living space!

Add In the Details
After you get the bedroom all set up, turn your focus onto the bathroom. Now although I am sure that we would all love to have a pristine white marble bathroom with a freestanding tub, it doesn’t always work out that way. Creating a luxury suite at home is just as much a combination of conscious mental relaxation and imagination as it is interior design. Your bathroom doesn’t need to look perfect to make it feel like a luxurious escape.
Put away the clutter, add some fresh flowers and other decorative accents like jars of bath salts and scrubs as space will allow, and enjoy your bathroom!
Spend Some You Time
Draw a warm bubble bath and shut out the world for a few minutes (or an hour or two). After your bath, pop a bottle of champagne and drink it in bed with a book or watching your favorite show. This is all about escape. Do whatever makes you the happiest! For more fun ideas on how to pamper yourself and spend some time alone, check out this post. Whether your escape into your luxurious suite lasts a few minutes or an entire weekend, the time that you take for yourself is well deserved.
