How to Give a Bedroom Boutique-Hotel Vibes, According to Designer Clara Jung
For the 2022 REAL SIMPLE Home, we're making over a house in Florida's Rosemary Beach community, a scenic community that boasts beautiful beaches. Each room in the house, from the living room to the porch to the kitchen, will get revamped by a different designer. Interior designer Clara Jung will be taking over the primary suite. Her plan: infuse the room with boutique-hotel charm, while nodding to the natural landscape of Northwest Florida.
About the Designer
Clara Jung started her career in corporate law before launching her firm, Banner Day Interiors, in 2014. The Berkeley, Calif.–based designer favors a slightly mismatched aesthetic. She rounds out a few new pieces with vintage finds and art, so a room looks like it's been decorated over time—not overnight.
The Goal: A Bedroom With the Feel of a Boutique Hotel
Clara loves rooms that are packed with vibrant colors, fun prints, and layers of textiles and textures. She always starts the process by choosing inspirational images, then she builds from there. For the primary suite, she's designing around a mural that reminds her of trees in the Florida Panhandle. Check out some of her inspiration, which you can shop to give your own bedroom boutique-hotel vibes.
