4 Tips for Creating the Ultimate Guest Retreat

When you're hosting out-of-town guests — whether they be family or friends — it's important to make them feel at home. One of the best ways to do that is by decking out your guest room with comforting touches that will help your guests settle in and relax.

If your guest room could use a bit of a refresh, stop by the Dallas Design District to create a warm and welcoming space for your house guests.


No matter how big or small the space is, some comfy bedding will make any guest room a dream for your visitors. Be sure to invest in soft sheets, fluffy pillows and extra blankets in case your guests run cold. For luxury linens, make sure you check out Peacock Alley. And get your fill of pillows in all shapes and sizes at The Pillow Bar.


Consider adding extra lighting options to your guest room beyond just the overhead light. It can be hard for guests to make their way back to bed in the dark in an unfamiliar room. A lamp on the nightstand should do the trick. You might even add a dimmer switch to the room to give your guests the option of the level of brightness in the room.

Wow your guests with the unique lighting options found at Uncommon Lighting. And don’t forget about the windows! Install curtains to block out any light from the street or an early morning sun.


So much can happen when you're packing for a trip. Things get forgotten or don’t fit easily fit into a bag, particularly when it comes to toiletries. Make life easier for your guests by providing some of the little things that often get left behind. Delicious-smelling soaps and lotions, extra towels, floss and extra toothbrushes are small touches that will leave a big impression on your guests. Check out the DDD’s Billy Jealousy for your guest’s bathroom needs. They have everything from full-size to travel-size products.


Now that you've got the guest room basics covered, it’s time for a little fun. Show off your design flair with fun accents and accessories. Add some artwork, a beautiful glass vase with fresh flowers, or extra seating like a bench or small chair to finish off the room. Get inspired for your perfect guest room with a stop by the showroom at Holland & Sherry.

The shops and showrooms at the Dallas Design District have everything you need to create a cozy retreat for your overnight guests. They’ll love it so much, they won’t want to leave!
