We asked designer and gifted host Thom Filicia for the best ways to outfit a guest room with a warm welcome.
Provide bedding options. “Put a light-weight cotton coverlet, a down duvet, and a wool or cashmere throw on the bed so guests have choices.”
Ditch the luggage stand. “Think of what a hotel offers, but then execute it in a less commercial way: Use an ottoman or bench for suitcases, which will make the room feel less like a hotel.”
