Guest Room Gorgeous
One of my most favorite things in life is hosting good friends and family in my home. This is especially so when it’s friends from out of town. I’ve discovered a few ‘tricks of the trade’ in regards to creating the perfect guest room ambiance.
To start, I like to fill the frames in the guest room of photos of myself with my visitors. Since the sun rises at a disrespectful hour in the summers in Calgary, I included an eye mask for lazy mornings. Lip chap is a necessity as most of my visitors go from grape to raisin the moment they land. A small jewelry box on the bedside table allows guests to store their jewels, and a water carafe allows for thirsty travelers to quench their thirst without having leaving their room. I plan on cooking a brunch one morning this week, so I whipped up a little menu to give my company some direction on what I have prepared for their visit. The best part of all this preparation is hearing friends say they feel like my home is their home.
