Bathroom decor: Hotel-inspired ensuite

By: Tamara Robbins Griffith

Hotel style” is a moniker we know well. Over the past two decades, the look, consisting of crisp white sheets, down duvets and soothing neutrals, has inspired bedroom decor. Now distinguished hotels around the globe are taking it one step further, extending that luxurious, serene look into the bathroom.

We were wowed by the spacious ensuite at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Hotel in London, England, designed by Richmond International. The bathroom features rich surfaces, intricate patterns and gilded accents. With a few luxe touches–some classic, others bold - it’s simple to get the look of this posh retreat in your own home.

Get the look

It’s easy to recreate the five-star hotel experience at home: pamper yourself with your favourite toiletries, freshly cut flowers and plush towels.

A patterned tiled floor adds interest to the bathroom; executed in contrasting Nero and Carrara marble, it has a timeless, classic appeal.

Using the same fabric for the window treatments and shower curtains gives the space a cohesive look. hotel-inspired-decor-toiletries.jpgBeautifully packaged toiletries
A collection of beautifully packaged toiletries gathered in a lacquered tray makes for a pretty presentation and eliminates countertop clutter.

Continue your colour scheme through to the bath accessories for the ultimate finishing touch. hotel-inspired-decor-mirror.jpgLarge gilded mirror
What a large gilded mirror does for the decor of a room, an extension mirror does for beauty prep, meaning you’ll never head out on the town without perfectly coiffed brows.

Mix metals! Gold tones play well with a few carefully placed chrome decor accents. hotel-inspired-decor-shower-curt.jpgSpa-worthy showerhead
Marble tile with dramatic veining and a Grohe rain showerhead take the shower from ordinary to spa-worthy. The detailed tub surround makes the bath seem more like a piece of furniture.

Fluffy his-and-hers robes displayed side by side are an ensuite essential. hotel-inspired-decor-notes.jpgAsian-inspired accessories
Distinctly Asian-inspired accessories, high-gloss black lacquered trays and bowls, delicate orchids, and a beautiful notecard with a fan motif add flair and personality to the space.

A gilded mirror offers a dash of regal glamour and brilliantly accents the black-and-white scheme.
