What do you love most about hotel rooms? Aside from the relaxing atmosphere, we're sure that you also can't get enough of the cozy beds! It makes you want to sleep all day and just relax. Since you can't live in a hotel, you can try to replicate the same look in your own home! The key is layering. Let these steps guide you:

1. Don't just cover the bed with a comforter. Fold the comforter down until all pillows are exposed.

2. Place a folded blanket across the bottom half of the bed and add a throw on top of it.

3. Arrange your pillows by leaning them against each other or laying them flat and stacked by twos.

4. Finish the look with one or two throw pillows to match your beddings.

RL Tip: You can still have a headboard even in a small bedroom! You can have it customized so that it wouldn't overwhelm your space. You can also create your own cushioned headboard! Click here to learn how.
