How To Create A Cozy Guest Bedroom

Warmer months have finally arrived and with that always brings visitors. It can be stressful trying to make everything perfect in order to create a memorable time for your loved ones. A great place to start is with the guest bedroom. Creating a space where your guests can feel at home even miles away will not go unnoticed. We’ve chosen a project we did for a client as an example.

When starting out we knew we wanted a relaxing vibe, something for our friends and family to walk into after a long day of traveling and sigh out of relief. We decided on a white and pale blue color palette. The color light blue evokes a feeling of peace and serenity, exactly what we’re going for! Being careful to chooose only some pieces in the blue color scheme and the rest in white, an inherentely positive color which is associated with new beginnings, possibilty and goodness. Who doesn't love some fresh white linens? There's really nothing quite like it - think a freshly made hotel bed!

Featuring our new Casey King Bed, we explore with the way hard materials can take on softer, more organic inspirations to create something brand new. Slightly irregular swoops, curves and flourishes keep everything airy and light. The open framing offers a sense of calming motion and adds instant appeal to bedroom spaces.

On either side is the White 3-Drawer Nightstand which is ideal for this relaxed guest bedroom. Offering casual style and cottage flair, this nightstand features solid mahogany construction. 

To add a bit of elegance and a more modern look we chose the Atlantis Glass Table Lamp with a parchment white shade and silver plated brass accents.

With that same mindset we knew we wanted a statement chandelier piece to hang over the bed making the guests really feel like they're on vacation. You could say the White Blooms Chandelier is the crowning jewel of the room! Hundreds of delicate white blooms are strung together on the quatrefoil-shaped frame of the Vanessa basin chandelier, making for a beautiful decorative moment.

Seating in your guest bedroom is something a lot of people skimp out on but it really is a must have. The guest bedrom also happens to be the only private retreat space for visitors when they just want to just chill out so really the Wright Swivel Chair is a deal-breaker and ideal for relaxation. 

Whether they have to make a personal call, get some work done or relax and read a book, the Collins Chair is also a neccesity.

To tie it all together we went with the Diamond Hand-Knotted Wool Rug. Comfort is one of the most important elements when creaing an inviting guest room. There's nothing worse than guests getting out of bed to their feet hitting a hardwood floor. Opt for a deliciously plush rug to create an oasis of calm in your bedroom like our extra long shaggy hand-knotted wool rug.

As for finishing touches you can go above and beyond to make your guests feel at home. Create a welcome basket with toiletries they might have forgotten, I've had a friend do this for me and I haven't forgotten it, so thoughtful! Incorporating cozy throws, lots of fresh linens/towels ready upon their arrival and candles burning yummy scents will create a hotel-like vibe your guests will never want to leave. And last but not least fresh flowers are a must!
