Be My Guest: A Warm Welcome For Summer House Guests

(Via Ooh La Frou Frou)

No matter where you call home in the Summer - the big city, on a lake, near the ocean, or in the country - chances are your friends and family will find you. Make your guests feel at home (or even better than at home) with a little bit of simple preparation.  Just think about what makes you comfy in a hotel. Chances are, your guests will like the same.  When it comes to hospitality, it truly is the "little things" that count.

Designers Guild Ltd.

Astor Moss - Designer's Guild
A soft look for a contemporary home.  Shades of citrus mixed with white is refreshing for the warmer months.

India Hicks Bedding
You may know the name from reading about royalty.  India was a bridesmaid for Princess Di.  Her Father was one of the world's most renowned designers.  The girl has some style, and it might be called "Island Style." Her bedding is simple but refined. Pictured above is the English Garden pattern.  See the entire collection at 

Laguna Seagrass Baskets
What to do with bath towels, beach towels or sundries? Display them in the guest room in an organized fashion with a pleasing presentation. There will be no confusion as to which towels to use. This is a set of 3 with a real beachy feel.

Jacaranda Living Waffle Weave Bathrobe
Robes take up sacred space in the suitcase. I always try to have at least one fresh robe in the guest closet.  After all, what's good enough for Ritz Carlton guests is perfect for my own special company. This one is priced very reasonably.
One Kings Lane

Serena And Lily Catalina Bedding
If you live seaside or want to make your guests feel like they do, this is a delightful coordinated set, without being matchy matchy.

Super Loft Feather Bed
Have you actually laid on your guest bed? If not, it is time to do so. Would you want to sleep in that bed?  If not, a feather bed may be what you need. They are especially helpful on a sofa bed.  I have trouble sleeping without one. These are fabulous!

Aya Blu Soap Set
A fresh bar of soap is not only courteous, it is a necessity.  Stock up on guest soaps when you see them on sale. Tuck them away in your own lingerie drawers, for an instant pick me up. These long-lasting, moisturizing soaps are quad-milled for a supremely rich and creamy lather. They ship for free and are now on sale. for less than $15
Soft Surroundings

Gobi Towels And Sheeting
Not so basic but just simply stylish. These sheets and towels are the perfect pairing for a lovely guest experience.  If the guest room has its' own bath en suite, all the more perfect.  Find them both at

Ellen Luggage Rack
A handy essential that makes life so much easier for your guest.

Borasilicate Glass Carafe and Glass
Like a fine hotel, I like to have water ready for my guests at bedtime. It is a thoughtful gesture that is appreciated by all. This set comes with a cup, as well.
Burke Decor

Charlottenberg - Dramatic Bedlinen
I just want to get in this bed. How welcoming! Designer's Guild does it again with fine linen and a pretty palette.

Arteriors Gold Snail Container
A flowering plant or fresh flowers will always be welcomed in a guest room. Loving this chic cachepot at

Granada Monogram Embossed 
Guest Towel
I love the idea of paper guest towels.  First of all, there is no laundry to do.  The monogram is always classic and classy.  Your guests will appreciate not having to soil your linens, as well. This is a set of 100 which will last at least a season.

Sparkling Embers Diffuser Set
With the scent of rare botanics, this is one of the most stylish diffuser containers I have ever seen. DL and Co. only creates fabulous fragrances, and they are one of my favorites. The only problem is that with a room that smells this lovely, your guest may never want to leave.
