In my world, nothing beats the feeling of staying in a crisp, clean hotel room. You can get this feeling at home too, by using tapestry, different shades of the same nuance (for example grey), matching bed tables and lamps and a wall-to-wall carpet. Round it off with a chandelier and fresh flowers.
