Good morning Lacquered Lifers! Mr. B and I are heading into a few weeks of houseguests, and so I have “getting the guest room ready” on my mind. There is a list of things that I check off that I think are essential to making a guest feel comfortable that are a bit above the obvious clean sheets, clean towels, and advil. I put books on the bedside tables that are easy to pick up and read a few pages of and put down, especially books with facts about your town or city. I leave cocktail napkins on the bedside tables, so that guests can feel comfortable putting their water down anywhere, as well as a carafe which I fill with ice water every evening. Don’t forget the small dish for jewelry or cufflinks, and a notepad for writing down that flight confirmation number for when your guests are rebooking their flights to stay longer. It is these little things that make a guest feel right at home, and why your friends will keep coming to visit. Below are some of my favorite guest room must haves.
