How to Boutique Your Home
Published: 9 July 2010

"Inspired to bring hotel glamour to your home? Try these tips, collected from hotel designers and the founders of Mr & Mrs Smith.

Shop at markets such as Alfies ( and Retrouvius ( for quirky one-offs

Use mirrors, particularly outdoors, to add glamour and a sense of space

Book personal shoppers abroad: they take you to the best stores and can easily save you more than the hire cost

Create a focal point to draw the eye as you walk into a room, with secondary points of interest once you have entered. This could be a feature wall or bold use of colour

Hang ceramics, rather than paintings, to add texture to a room

Individualise your bedroom by covering one wall in a distinctive paper

Use pendants with dimmer switches as bedside lighting to create romance

For the ultimate comfort, supplement your bedside lamps with adjustable reading lights fixed to the headboard

Bathrooms visible from the bedroom are luxurious, but not always practical. Make yours semi-private with glass screens and trapped sheer fabric or frosting

Choose dark-coloured furniture, such as black lacquered shelving and cabinets, for an opulent look"
