How to Create a 5 Star Hotel Bed in the Comfort of Home

Last updated on September 5th, 2023 at 11:27 am

From the 2-night work trip to a 2-week vacation, one thing we all look forward to is climbing into our hotel bed. What is the secret sauce that makes them soooo dreamy? We have researched for you (it’s a hard life). With the help of expert Louise, founder of Studio Gabrielle, who curates exquisite beds, we’ve put together five steps for creating a hotel-style bed in the unrivalled comfort of home.

1. The bedding

Smooth, crisp and fresh as a Summer daisy, the bedding is the first thing that lures you in. Louise points out how hotels pay exquisite attention to detail, creating that inviting, relaxing atmosphere, though we often don’t do this at home. Well, why not? Choosing beautiful bedding is the first place to start. The key is to choose high-quality, breathable fabrics like bamboo, linen or cotton. If you like slipping under silky, soft sheets (and really, who doesn’t), our 100% bamboo bedding makes a great choice. Highly breathable, bamboo regulates temperature for cool summer nights (who needs aircon) while insulating you for that cosy ‘don’t want to get out of bed’ feeling in winter. We offer a range of colours to suit every dreamer. Stuck on a choice? Louise advises wearing white, which never goes out of style and gives a clean, pure look year-round.

2. The base

Experience a 5-star hotel retreat in your bedroom with Studio Gabrielle’s La Grâce Bed. Its captivating curves beckon you on an emotional journey to deep slumber while tranquillity fills your space. Available in UK and European sizes, fully upholstered in exclusive house fabrics, with statement ball feet and an ingenious inset base system, this bed blends style and comfort effortlessly.

The timeless sophistication embodied in this bed brings the opulent aura of luxury hotels to your home. Carefully curated details inspired by the moon’s dance and ocean rhythms create an ambiance of grandeur. Studio Gabrielle’s dedication to quality craftsmanship and impeccable design ensures your space becomes a haven of relaxation and elegance.

This isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s about transforming your space into a luxurious retreat while embracing sustainability. The La Grâce Bed bridges refined taste and eco-conscious living, making it the perfect centrepiece for your personal 5-star experience.

3. The Pillows

Hotel pillows are the ultimate treat; plump, fresh and plentiful; they often come in different shapes and sizes to create the perfect comfort level. Though at home, two is enough to do the trick when you know what to pick. If you like firm support, a memory foam pillow is ideal. The advanced technology adapts to your sleeping position, optimising neck and spine alignment. Choose a breathable fabric like bamboo for that fresh side of the pillow feeling. If you enjoy a bit more squidge, the Hybrid Bamboo Pillow provides the best of both. The mix of charcoal-infused memory foam, O2 Micro-pods™ and soft, breathable bamboo cloud cover gives just the right balance of cool, cushiony comfort for a seriously good slumber.

4. The Mattress

When it comes to the most amazing night’s sleep, the mattress is king,” says Louise. Hotels normally get it just right, providing a surface that is a dreamy combo of softness, support and breathability that makes you want to take the bed home. While that might not be an option, you can have your own. A Hybrid Mattress gives you that five-star feeling, blending two of the most popular mattress fills. Advanced third-generation foam supports your sleeping position, while pocket spring technology relieves essential pressure points, providing bespoke comfort and isolating movement if you share a bed. Though with a bed this comfy, you might not want to!

5. The Duvet

What makes the perfect duvet? “It has to be light, fluffy and deliciously soft”, says Louise, who loves snuggling in for duvet days and luxurious lie-ins. A hotel duvet always feels like it’s been made just for you; our Bamboo Cloud Duvet has. Using our signature breathable bamboo and innovative Nano-Microfibre™ we’ve created the softest, fluffiest duvet that will have you drifting off on cloud 9. “Bamboo is a great choice for sleep. I have fallen in love with it for how gentle and soft it feels on my skin” says Louise, who is getting sleepy with all this talk of hotels and bedtime. Perhaps it’s a good time to wrap things up…

So there you have it, the five essentials for a five-star sleep at home. You might not quite want to cancel your next holiday, though at least you know you will have a gorgeously comfortable bed to look forward to when you get back.
