Nothing screams “Welcome Family & Friends,” like a cozy and inviting guest bedroom. Nestled in our basement sits a room that up until a few weeks ago, was a pretty blank canvas. But upon spotting this gorgeous (and insanely soft) duvet from Bloomingdales, I was like…ok, let’s get this space Guest Worthy! With the help of the über talented, Mandy Skelton of H. Josephine, this luxurious bedding & shams, welcome Goodies from Bloomies such as a crazy cozy Robe & Towels, and beautfully unique accessories, throw pillows, rug, and chairs from H. Josephine, we were able to take this space from blah to B E A U T I F U L….not to mention inviting, serene, and peaceful. Which is exactly how I want my friends and family to feel when they stay at our crib. I always try to think of how I want to feel upon entering a hotel room–my eyes IMMEDIATELY go to the bed…which is why I really wanted to treat my guests to a very comfy night’s rest….this DUVET is buttery soft–like moreso than our bedding in the master. I R E A L L Y wanted to go with the LEMONS, but the wheels were already in motion for a neutral palette so mayyyybe I can convince Johnny we need to get cozy with the citrus in our bedroom! There’s a few details I always like to include for our guests which help elevate their stay……make them feel special, you know?? First…I always try to have a little Welcome Basket….it doesn’t need to be anything elaborate and can simply have a note, some aspirin, a few bottles of water, a face mask and maybe your guest’s fave snack…but it’s an easy and affordable way to say, “I’m glad you’re here!” If you want to kick things up a notch, PERSONALIZE some goodies….be it the ROBE, a MUG and local coffees or snacks, or some PJs…truly the opportunities are endless and it will be a wonderfully thoughtful surprise for your guest. Lastly, the devil is in the details…..think a print out of your WIFI password, the intinerary for their stay, and the weather for the duration, too! It’s the little things in this case and my guests love these fun gestures!! Alright, gang, I hope you enjoyed a little peek into our guest bedroom….I can’t thank Mandy from H.Josephine in Broad Ripple enough for helping curate such a lovely space for our guests….be sure to check out Bloomingdales HOME section to get your bedrooms race ready for your visitors!! Make it a great one, Gang!
