Make houseguests feel like VIPs

Company coming? We're here to help with suggestions to turn your spare bedroom into a cozy guest retreat. Preparing a stylish guest suite is a snap with inspiration from five-star hotels and these five tips:

warm and inviting: Create an environment that promotes sleep. Make the bed super-comfy by adding a thick duvet and lots of fluffy pillows. High-thread-count cotton sheets are also a must.

a place for reflection: Hang a small mirror in the guest room to provide a spot for touching up makeup or putting on jewelry. A long dressing mirror is also a nice addition.

bathing in luxury: Lay out his-and-hers bathrobes and place rolled bath towels at the foot of the bed in case guests would like to freshen up upon arrival.

Other suggestions:

feed body and mind: Stock the guest room with magazines and books and put together a snack tray or basket filled with light snacks and bottled water.

remember when: If your overnight guests are family or close friends, it's always a nice touch to display photos of time spent together in the past; everyone enjoys a trip down memory lane.
