Today is my debut as a LampsPlus blogger! The topic is seasonal—”14 Guest Room Essentials“—in anticipation of holiday house guests. (Not that I have to deal with this, as we go to Connecticut most Thanksgivings.) I do, however, love the idea of creating the perfect space for guests. In my younger (misguided) years, I thought having a B&B in Vermont would be fun. Yikes. Instead I try to make our guest rooms on the Cape light, airy, and all around perfect. I suppose one could run into the problem of visitors overstaying their welcome, but since I don’t tend to cook and dance any jigs for them, I haven’t had this issue. : )
Anyway, addition to perusing the pretty guest room worthy offerings below, click over to Lamps Plus’ blog Style Illuminated for a look. In addition to a product roundup, I featured interiors designed by Palmer Weiss, Nicole Hollis, Maria Lladro, and others.
One last thing . . . I just want to mention that I’m in super good company. My co-bloggers include Anne Sage of The City Sage, KariAnn Wood of Thistlewood Farm, Erin Hiemstra of Apartment 34, designer Rob Levine, Allison Rosenberg of Deco on the Road, Meg Biriam, and my editor, the lovely Lesley Myrick.
