Be My Guest

With a summer full of long weekends ahead your guest bedroom may be busier than normal. Make your guests feel welcome with these cute and simple guest bedroom ideas.

1. Add flowers

Pop a jug of fresh flowers in the room for a sweet floral smell. Fresh flowers always look pretty good too. My favourite are white roses, sunflowers or peonies.

Pop your guest towels in the tumble for a plush and soft feel. Roll them up and place on the bed or fold over a rail or ladder (as seen in the pic below)

3. Reflection

Make sure there is a mirror in the guest bedroom, it could be a cluster of small ones or a larger freestanding mirror. Every guest needs a mirror.

A really cute idea is to have a draw full of essentials, the things you tend to forget when you go away for the weekend.


5. Take a seat

If you have the space and a spare chair, pop it in the guest bedroom. A chair like this from Delcor below not only looks really good, it’s useful to either sit on or pop your clothes on (everyone puts their clothes on a chair!)

6. Layers

Depending on the time of the year your guest might want some extra layers on the bed. During the summer months it might not be necessary to have a huge thick duvet. Providing different bedding options is always a really nice idea. If it’s a hot summer night a thin sheet would probably suffice.

7. Lights

If you have a bedside table pop a light on there to save your guest having to get out of bed to switch the light on and off. If you don’t have a table use the windowsill or a stack of books by the side of the bed.table8. Sweet scents 

Scented candles are great for adding a gorgeous scent, they also create a warm and cosy feel to a guest bedroom. Jo Malone, The White Company and Jelly Bean all have great options.Candle

9. Tick tock

Add an alarm clock to the bedside table so your guest knows what time it is. Try not to get a clock with an loud tick and tock – there is nothing worse!

10. Have a read

Leave a stack of books or magazines, everyone loves a good read!
