A lot of homeowners dream of having a hotel-like bedroom, and rightly so, what with stressful city-living. But don't just settle for a look that is relaxing—raise the bar by giving your sleeping space some drama. Here are some ideas: 

1. Choose a bed that vies for your attention. 

In this bedroom designed by interior designer John Vigilia, the bed serves as the pièce de résistance, thanks to its winged headboard. Get this bed at Home Matters, 4/L Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City. 

2. Create a canopy. 

Canopied beds aren't only for little girls. Feel like royalty by cocooning yourself in a canopied bed. It is also a great way of separating your sleeping spot from the rest of your space, especially if you live in a studio unit. 

3. Go for subdued hues. 

Ditch the bold color palette and opt for a more serene one. In this Chinoiserie-inspired bedroom, sage green, a bit of gray, and white all work together to create an elegant and timeless space for the condo unit owner. 

4. Add a luxurious feel by decking the bed with soft linen. 

Nothing can spell luxury more than bed linen so soft that you simply sink. Deck the bed with a mix of standard-size pillows, kidney and throw pillows, duvet cover, and a throw. Also, get a bed that leans more on the traditional style, like this bed from Mav Furniture's Playlist Collection. 

5. Furnish your room with a four-poster bed. 

Want instant glam? A four-poster bed is the answer. It doesn't have to look like it is centuries-old—you can go for a four-poster bed that has clean lines for a more up-to-date look. Consider having string curtains so you'll feel enveloped in a sanctuary as you sleep.
