This year’s flu season hit hard and left many of us confined to our bedrooms with boxes of tissues and multiple rounds of antibiotics. There’s nothing worse than being sick, and if where you’re spending the majority of your time—i.e. your bedroom—isn’t doing anything to help you feel better, perhaps it’s time for a change.

While I can’t guarantee beautiful surroundings make for a speedier recovery, it certainly can’t hurt. Below are a few ideas for spending your sick days in style.

If you believe that your boudoir deserves the same royal treatment you do, then this over-the-top aesthetic is for you:
