We are approaching that time when we need to consider the possibility of hosting for a few nights and inevitably this will involve some overnight guests. Although the festive season may get us in the spirit for giving it is always a hard task clearing out the guest room and trying to make the mattress propped up on stilts look presentable for your favourite mother-in-law. Amongst the rubble and boxes however is an invaluable asset, space!
Yes space! Your guest suite shouldn’t be something to bring a sigh when you have left the door open and glanced inside, it should be a trophy, a space to be proud of. Maybe hosting the family "get-together"s wouldn’t be so daunting as well.
Revamp, with a lamp
Lighting is essential; it can create a completely different atmosphere and, for the most part, the trouble with an unloved room is the atmosphere. The wallpaper isn’t modern and the carpet has seen better days but this can be fine-tuned by better lighting and won’t involve tearing the whole place apart!
Horse Head Lamp With Ivory Shade
In keeping with upping the wow factor in your smaller bedroom, a beige lampshade works perfectly with a silver base. This is neutral and works beautifully with whatever existing design you have as well as offering a bit of flash! Our horse head lamp possesses a similarly neutral ivory shade and offers a more contemporary appeal whilst our nickel lamp with a beige shade is a classic and gives this classy aesthetic that is sure to bring a bit of life into your guest suite.
Medium Nickel Decorative Lamp
Your Main Frame
Onto the main event now, which is undoubtedly the bed, we can’t go too far into furnishing a spare room or we run the risk of overcrowding, so the best thing is to keep it simple. A fresh lamp, a new bed with some warming linens should do the trick but if you really want to hit a home run we would recommend a bedside table just to bring the look together.
Upholstered Grey French Single Bed
Single or at most double beds are a must for your spare room, anything bigger and you may have trouble getting your guests to leave! A mini wonder from one of our own ranges is the upholstered French grey single bed which boasts a class and style perfect for settling into a different bedroom. It makes you feel homely and beautifully compliments our favourite guest lamps.
Let’s get those spare rooms into fighting condition and make people wonder why they’re going spare in the first place. By the time the morning has come around there will be a few sad faces having to leave your marvellous guest boudoir and you can stand proud over your exquisite creation.
