Take the Shortcut to Luxury with Accessories
One of the easiest (and most affordable) ways to get the high-end, collected-over-time look of a boutique hotel is with the accessories you use. Choose items that bring in at least three textures in the room: one plush, one sleek and one natural, recommends Jay Jeffers, author of Collected Cool
and designer behind the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Lake Tahoe
. Cashmere throws—particularly in not-too-cutesy patterns like herringbone—and Lucite trays that catch the light are two of Jeffers' go-to additions.
