Have you ever walked into a hotel room and instantly felt at home? The goal on most interior designers’ minds when decorating for a hotel is to make every guest feel like they are in a home away from home. The decor is often elegant and comfortable, but there are thousands of hotels out there with varying designs to fit everyone’s taste. That’s why hotels are a great source of inspiration when decorating or staging your own home. Most hotels will let you take photos of the lobby and restaurant(s) and tour the hotel without being registered, and sometimes they will even let you preview a room.
To start off this series of posts on inspiring hotel decor, I’m going to show you some of my favorite examples of beautiful hotel suites…

Is your mind already churning with great ideas? If you’re decorating a home for yourself, hotels can offer great ideas for color schemes and decor. If you’re staging, there are little touches that hotels have like a fresh towel hanging over the tub or a coffee pot and cups situated on a tray near the bed. These touches bring warmth to a space and make anyone walking into it feel like they are someplace special.
