Create an instantly welcoming guest bedroom

The Holidays are coming and so are your guests!!!

Creating a welcoming guest bedroom is kind, not just during the holiday season.

Create a sensory experience. 

We experience the world through our senses. Use this to your advantage when designing a guest bedroom to create a meaningful and memorable experience for your guests. Create a beautiful visual impact with wallpaper, patterns, or a bold color palette. Play with textural patterns that beg to be touched, from velvets and satins to cashmere blankets and rugs. Set the ambiance while invigorating their sense of smell by burning a candle in a seasonal scent. And just like your favorite boutique hotel, leave your favorite chocolate in their room for a little something sweet at the end of the day.

Choose luxury linens. 

Choose simple but luxurious bedding for your guests. Choose high quality, high thread count sheets and duvet covers, and supply extra blankets and pillows should they need them. Comfort is key for a good night’s sleep.

Provide a place to rest. 

A place to sit gives your guest the opportunity to rest on another place than the bed. I love including a chair in a guest bedroom as it offers a place to read, make a phone call, or simply a place to rest privately. Just be sure to include a light.

Skip the clutter, clear drawers, and empty the closet. 

Pare down accessories to provide ample surface space for your guests to set their belongings. Remove personal photos and accessories so guests don’t feel like they are invading someone else’s room. Also plan to clear out drawers and empty the closet so your guests can utilize the space.

Provide the necessities. 

From toothpaste to shampoo, we often forget something at home when we travel. Stock your guest bathroom with the necessities they may have forgotten. And don’t forget to include extra towels.

The hostess with the mostest! I do love to have guests & entertain. My guest bedroom today has all of the necessary comforts of home plus some. I recently added a photo frame to my collection of items for my guests: in St. Louis my frame is either a St Louis Arch, Cardinals, theatre or whatever we may have planned for the week-end. I make certain to take a picture while my guests are here, send to my local photo lab @ Walgreens, CVS, etc & have a print made so we can add to the frame for them to take home as a memory from the visit! It is always a hit!
