Tips For Setting Up a Welcoming Guest Room


When setting up your guest room, it’s helpful to consider what you’d appreciate if you were a visitor in someone’s home. For me, that includes a calm, neutral space with thoughtful touches, including the following:

  • A beautifully made bed, complete with crisply ironed sheets, a silk pillowcase, a variety of pillows, a lightweight cotton blanket, along with a heavier duvet and cover
  • A tray and water in a Mark Thomas Double Bend Carafe — a lovely, understated crystal piece — from Kneen & Co 
  • A toiletry basket with toothpaste and a toothbrush, shampoo and conditioner, soap or shower gel, and body lotion — in your guest’s favorite brands and scents
  • Matouk white bath towels
  • An assortment of current magazines
  • A stack of previously read books your guests can read while they’re visiting or take with them 

We hope these ideas inspire you to furnish your guest room with luxury basics and a few personal touches that will make your company feel right at home.
