How can I create a relaxation area within another room?

An exotic getaway is always a treat, so why not create a special haven for yourself right within your own home? Look for an underused area like a dormer, a nook under the stairs, a bump out or even a corner of a room and focus on creating a luxurious area where you can relax and read a good book.

Luxurious fabrics and opulent color combine to create a resplendent hideaway from the world. Golden brown walls and a soft, butter yellow ceiling impart a cocooning warmth that beckons relaxation. Soft lighting, achieved through the imaginative use of a hanging crystal chandelier, pagoda table lamp, and fabric screen to control the amount of natural light entering the space, sets the mood.


Sumptuous fabrics with luxe details such as hand-knotted fringe and embroidered beading can be affordable luxuries for small spaces. A dramatic patterned rug paired with fabric accents in shimmering melon and chartreuse silk complete this niche's lavish look.
