10 Ways to Give Your Home Boutique Hotel Vibes

how-get-boutique-hotel-styleThe great thing about staying in a hotel is that you don’t have to clean up after yourself. Is there anything better than coming back from a day of sightseeing to find your room spotless and welcoming? Yes, there is something better — and that is the white fluffy robe that you get to drape around yourself as you watch TV. And then there’s the room service; hello, cheeseburger on demand!

On second thought, there are a million great things about staying in a chic hotel!

The Perfect Coffee Table

2017-06-14_13-35-31Designer and Southern style expert Phoebe Howard solves one of our most pressing decorating dilemmas, offering her foolproof formula for arranging a coffee table.

The Coffee Table Decor Formula: Using these elements, you can apply Phoebe’s chic and simple method to any space or tabletop.

  1. Something Tall
    Hurricane vases or candlesticks are great because when you light candles, they add sparkle and make everything festive.
  2. One Oddball Object
    Choose something that’s sculptural and quirky to express your personality. Some ideas: a piece of coral, a glass orb, or a small ginger jar.
  3. Something Fresh
    A nice pot of ivy, a fern, or some fresh-cut flowers add life and easy-to-change color to the room.
  4. A Stack of Books
    Use a few large, pretty art books to make a stack, and top it off with something decorative.
