Keep furniture chic in a hotel-style bedroom. Opt for high-gloss bedside cabinets and wardrobes. Go for industrial-style lighting for a contemporary theme, with bare light bulbs hanging in clusters above the bed.
We had to rub our eyes to check we weren't dreaming when we first saw these new designer-look beds from Argos' new Heart of House collection. With its deeply buttoned headboard and tufted fabric upholstery, we'd expected the Filby bedstead (above) to have price tag of £600-plus, but we were astonished to find it costs from just £199.99 for a double or £229.99 for a king size. Argos, with these beds, you're really spoiling us!
Take inspiration from boutique Edinburgh hotels and decorate your bedroom in a masculine, Scottish style for a smart look. Be bold go for a tartan patterned carpet in chic black and white. It's stylish but will also hide dirt and fluff so it's practical, too. Very has a tartan rug that would work well if you aren't feeling that brave.
Sometimes the simplest design tricks are the most effective. Spelling out an uplifting, energising or soothing word or phrase can bring a whole new feel to a room. Paint letters in a contrasting colour to the walls to ensure they stand out.
Create a sleek urban hotel-style bedroom with tartan-checked flooring in black and white. Team this modern look with a black wooden framed bed and square-shaped lampshades. Paint walls an icy blue for a super-stylish finish.
Hang industrial lighting for the final finishing touch to this contemporary scheme. Look for bare light bulbs, and hang them in a cluster for a statement focal point. This look is all about luxurious textures so choose heavy velvet curtains, silk cushions and soft chenille rugs for a sumptuous boudoir that's a restful retreat.
