The Mal life holds a simple motto: “It’s not where you choose to stay, it’s how you choose to live” – and Malmaison Leeds is no exception to this. Hosting an abundance of lavish rooms complete with tasty treats from the lemon curd complimentary biscuits, to the enticingly fragrant bath surprises, who wouldn’t choose this way of life?
Sumptuous style however, doesn’t have to end the moment you depart the Malmasion – oh no, as you dear reader, can re-create the glamorous Malmaison lifestyle at home.
Malmaison is all about luxury, so when thinking of styling up your humble abode remember this: slinky style, plush fabrics, rich colourings and ‘ahh’ inducing comfort equal the essence of Mal life.
Malmaison dares you to be different, and what better way to do this than splashing out on a little creative interior design? You may even want to decorate a spare room in your home and treat it as your own little get away to keep the luxury element alive. Malmasion Leeds has a focus on rich, deep colours and opulence is rife as the rooms see colour blocking take place – right from the navy blue and taupe squared headboards through to the checkered black and white bathroom tiles. Why not add a splash of Mal appeal to your home by investing in something similar?
We all love the idea of a completely secret haven, and part of the appeal of staying in a hotel is the fact that there are many secret lives taking place behind each little bedroom door. Create your own decadent den by hanging floor to ceiling curtains in navy blue and taupe colour blocking around your home and shut out the world for a little while. Start the gossip and fuel the fire.
Another great way to emulate the Malmaison style is to accessorise – cushions are comfortable and ornamental at the same time, and the Mal uses a mixture of navy blue and plaid cushions to create an interesting mix of colour and textures. Try to look for cushion covers in soft wool fabrics for a treat on the senses.
Speaking about treating the senses, anybody who has been lucky enough to stay at the Malmaison will be quite familiar with their tantalising bath time indulgences. Malmaison have worked together with the wonderful Arran Aromatics to create a range of luxury toiletries to de-stress your overworked mind, relax your tired limbs and soothe you softly into your Mal experience. What’s even better is that you can re-create the Malmaison bathing routine by purchasing your very own little bottles of heaven from the Arran Aromatics website. If you really want to go all out on the Malmaison style, then a marbled black vanity unit is a must. Add large mirrors and a grandiose tub big enough for two et voilà! Malmaison bathroom perfection.
All that’s left to do now is check yourself in to your own little taster of Mal life…
