Change your thinking about the spare bedroom in your home. It's not just storage space for winter clothing or extra furniture. For your guests, it's an escape. Strive to give your visitors a pleasurable break from reality.
Elements of Home
A bed is an obvious need for guests. Unfortunately, most homeowners offer little else. Lance and Margo Hayes provide more for visitors in their Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home. Among the inn-inspired ingredients: a pair of nightstands and reading lamps, a bureau, and simple decor.
Room To Relax
Whether they are family or friends, guests need to know they can retreat to the bedroom for peace and quiet without having to curl up on the bed. These hosts offer comfortable seating with an upholstered wing chair tucked in a corner. A side table to hold a beverage and books is a must.
