What makes a guest room memorable?
What does it take to have your guests leave your home saying
'Wow, that was so wonderful, I really enjoyed my stay'?
Am I being too hopeful to think I could conjure up that sort of reaction?
This started my quest for the perfect guest room.
I started thinking of my own experiences when staying
with family and friends and a few things came to mind.
A comfy bed and lots of pillows are my slice of heaven.
A stack of thick, soft towels
are a welcoming touch.
Fresh flowers and a few nibbles are nice after a long journey.
A comfy chair and a collection of reading
material for those moments when
you feel the hostess needs a break
and it is time to convene to your room
There may be a time when you would like to drop a line
or tidy up a few of your garments.
Any of these are a nice touch,
At the end of the day, after a bit of pampering in the guest bath...
It is always nice to have something nice to slip into
and then back to bed for a restful nights sleep
and in the morning....
Now the trick is for me to create all this in two small single bedrooms.
While not as luxurious as the bedrooms featured here
and I must say that four poster is looking heavenly,
I could create some of the comforts of home.
Am I missing anything?
What have been your favourite guest memories?
