Studio7 Boutique Hotel

After a lot of playing around and fiddling, I completed my first scene using studioseven of Mini*Aesthetics items from our miniature swap! I was excited to create a bedroom featuring the gorgeous and luxurious bedding she made by hand. As I tried to put things with it, I got the idea that it could be a luxury/boutique hotel room. The lighting and the aqua color made me think it could be somewhere tropical, perhaps? Either way, it would be a great relaxing getaway :)

This room is in one of the units of my cube shelves (Ikea Expedit) unit, with one side covered in tracing paper. The lighting sometimes cooperates, and sometimes it doesn't. This one came out pretty dark, but you can see the layout of the whole room.
I just happened to have a blue stationary box that fit perfectly as a bed for the duvet and pillows Alisa made. The headboard is a wood flooring sample with mirrors from the swap. I made a small desk from another wood sample and my acrylic coffee table turned on its side. Desk accessories and plant are also from Alisa. Chair is Reac, and the side table is made by me. Bed tray is from my Re-Ment and eraser collection.

 On the other side of the room I have the television/magnet that was another swap goodie, along with a cool pillbox cabinet she created using stainless steel contact paper and clear beads as knobs. I thought maybe it could be a cool hotel minibar/minifridge in this case. Inside there are tiny cork board squares on each door! The tv stand is from DHE minis, and the blue containers came in the swap as well as the bookbag, pillow, and upholstered bench/ottoman.

Again with the lighting issues! But here you can see this couple is enjoying the room (they were also part of the swap).  It was fun to put this together. All in all, I believe I counted 24 items from our swap in this scene! (And there are still plenty of  items that I didn't use). I still have another room in the works using more swap accessories, so stay tuned. It really is a gift that keeps on giving :)


  1. Very posh! I would so stay there! What a great idea on the pill box. I might have to steal that one ;-)

  2. I love boutique hotels. I can't wait to make my reservation. Posh indeed, well designed Margaret.

  3. 0_0 I am super envious of those blue containers!

    Another awesome room.

  4. Totally luxurious hotel room! Great use of Alisa's swap. Love how you put it all together!

  5. What did you use for the little trash bin under the desk?
