Some of you may not be able to take *that vacation you’ve been longing for this summer, but you can always go with Plan B — going on a faux vacation in your very own bedroom. I know it’s not like the real thing, but creating the right ambiance will make you feel just as relaxed as if you were at a modern, stylish and cozy hotel. Follow our easy tips to get the look:

Get Rid of the Ceiling Lighting
One of the main reasons your bedroom feels uninviting is the wrong type of lighting. Trade in the ceiling light for something more soothing like wall sconces. If that’s not enough light for you, pair them with table lamps or a floor lamp.

Bedroom Wall Sconces

Invest in a Good Headboard
A bold headboard can completely change the look of your bedroom. Don’t be afraid to splurge a little — it’s well worth it!

Go With Floor-to-Ceiling
Natural light is a great way to create a relaxing atmosphere, but bare windows can leave your bedroom feeling a little stale. Choose floor-to-ceiling window treatments, which add the illusion of height and bring a touch of luxury.
