Essential "Ingredients" for a Luxurious Guest Room

My French Style Guest Room renvoation series continues, so here is a check list of must have items for a luxurious Guest room that I will endeavour to include in the space planning for my French style guest room.

  • Most important - somewhere to put a suitcase.
  • Rug or carpet as you step out of bed.
  • Quality Queen Size Bed
  • Bedside Cabinets
  • Bedside Lamps that you can read under.
  • A wardrobe to encourage guests not to live out of a suitcase on the floor.
  • Chair for some quiet space or putting your shoes on.
  • Mirror
  • Desk / Dresser for somewhere to put their nick nacks.
  • Adequate Lighting
  • Accessories such as an alarm clock & I pod dock. Placing a hair dryer in the guest room can help ease congestion in the bathroom when guests visit.
  • Quality Linen & towels.
  • Books to read
Monica Pedersen designed this guest room for the 2011
Lake Forest Showcase House in Illinois.

Great bedding is a must for styling and there is something about sleeping in freshly washed crisp sheets so I offer clients the choice of embroidered cotton satteen, pure linen or silk sheets for their bedrooms.

Flaxfield Linen is avalable through Journey Home.
