I am absolutely thrilled today to host my very first Guest Poster, Marie Huang from Progression by Design. She has an incredible sense of style in which I hope rubs off on me. Maybe I’m just dreaming, but she could have a thing or two for black and white.
For those of you scratching your head wondering why some new faces are appearing on my blog, they’re here to offer up a bit of variety. You know, in case you get sick of my terrible only-I-get-my-own-jokes kinda thing, oh and maybe the thought of keeping my readers (Hi Dad, Hi Cortney!!). Or maybe this formula has something to do with it.
Enough blabbing, here we goo….

Whenever I come home from a long day I, like many, love lounging in my bedroom. There's just something so cozy about curling up with a book or catching up on your favorite show under your duvet cover. It's important to me that my room is somewhere that I actually enjoy being in. It needs to be comfortable, functional, and pretty!
I've always loved the feeling of cushy hotel bedding. The giant stacks of pillows, the soft smooth sheets... So I figured, why not bring that feeling of hotel luxury into my own bedroom? There's no need for a trip when you can get away in your own bedroom!
The first step to creating your own luxury suite is to invest in a nice hotel style duvet cover and sheet set. These sets can range from very expensive, to moderate and affordable. Typically the higher prices indicate a higher thread count in the sheets. It is completely unnecessary to financially over extend yourself and purchase $500 sheets. However, splurging a little on nicer sheets than you might typically buy will add to the overall feeling of luxury you're trying to create in your space. Another bonus regarding hotel bedding is the enormous flexibility it lends with the design of the rest of your room. The crisp white sheets pair deliciously with bright pillows, pieces of colored furniture, or colored walls!
This may seem like an obvious thing to some, but don't cheap out on your pillows. By purchasing higher quality pillows initially, they won't wear as fast and need replacing. I mean come on, who doesn't just love diving into large fluffy pillows and snuggling under soft sheets? I sure do! Nice pillows can make all the difference between an average bed and a luxury suite quality bed.
While comfy bedding and pillows are important, so are the little details. Don't forget to add a soft white robe, fresh flowers, and your favorite candle! Adding small touches to your room and bathroom will really make it feel like your living in the lap of luxury. Consider adding a basket of warm rolled towels or a jar of your favorite soaps and bath salts at the end of your tub!

All that's left is figuring out room service. Don't you just love the sleek lines and spa-like atmosphere the elegant ensemble creates? How would you create your own luxury suite?
