Home Decorating with Blue

Is Your Home Ready for Guests?

As we head into December, you may have guests arriving and parties to host. To help you create the best experience possible for your visitors I have detailed some ways to freshen up a room and get your guest room ready.

Create a fresh entertainment area!

Why not do a quick change up in your entertainment area and add a pop of unexpected color! Pops of color can add interest, excitement, and ground color schemes in a room.

Is your guest room ready?

My suggestion is to walk into your guest room and try to view it from the eye of the visitor. Is it fresh smelling? Is there a place to put luggage, a place to plug in electronics for recharging, and a place to sit?

If you want to create a fresh look quickly without spending a fortune:

  1. Add a soft and cozy throw to the foot of the bed and a fun textured fur pillow.
  2. If your guest room does not have bedside tables or lamps, be creative and walk around your house and see if there is a table or lamp that can be used! Even if it is only temporary! Make sure to add appropriately sized lamps. When sitting in bed, the bottom of the lampshade should be at the top of your ear. Make sure lampshades and light bulbs match. I love using white or cream shades as they diffuse the best light in the room.
  3. If you find a great table or lamp base and it is the wrong color SPRAY PAINT them! Rustoleum Primer & Paint Spray paint is fabulous at resurrecting items and adding an unexpected pop of color to a room.
