Last week we started talking about adding a luxury feel to your home. (See the blog: How To Make Your Home Feel Like A Luxury Hotel: Part 1). Today, as we continue, we, once again take our cues from high-end hotels when it comes to adding that luxe feel. A few easy steps and your home can have the same feeling as The Four Seasons. Read on for some lovely suggestions…
“I’m a man of simple tastes, I’m always satisfied with the best.“Oscar Wilde
Most luxury hotels place fresh-cut flowers in their lobbies and other common areas and replace them before they suggest a wilt. Fresh flowers give a feeling of elegance, of specialness. You can add fresh flowers to the console in your front hall, your dining room or kitchen table, the chest of drawers in your bedroom or guest room. Buy a large bunch and spread them out; it only take a little touch to add hotel-level luxe.
Add A Signature Scent
No matter which Ritz property you visit throughout the world they all smell the same. They are permeated by the smell of Asprey’s Purple Water. The shampoo, the conditioner, the soap is all Purple Water and many of the properties have scent systems that perfume the air with it, as well. You can copy this idea by placing plug-in air fresheners or battery-power scent dispensers in key areas throughout your home. For more on the topic of signature scent, check out my previous blog: Simple Secrets For Creating a Signature Scent For Your Home.
Add Little Luxuries
Who doesn’t like that cozy robe that hangs on the bathroom door on in the closet of four star hotels? Getting out of their luxurious shower and wrapping yourself in that lovely, absorbent cotton is a little slice of heaven. You can have this luxe feel too by adding a robe and even slippers to your guest space. While your at it, pull together a basket of all those small-sized products you bring home from hotels, so that your guests will have little treats as well.
A Final Thought…
Life is short. Why not make your home as warm and welcoming as possible? You spend a lot of time there… and you deserve it. As always… stay safe out there my friends… and have fun!
Now For A Little Music Before We Go…
