The Perfect Guest Room

You might have noticed that it has been a little quiet of late here on Butterfly Lane.  We are ridiculously busy putting the final touches on our online boutique that will be launching very very soon!  But I must admit I have been feeling lots of guilt about neglecting our little blog and I have missed it very much indeed.  Therefore, I thought I would say a quick hello and write a small blog...

The work continues at Beech House and we were lucky enough to have a house full of family last weekend to really crack on with the ever growing list of 'things to do' on the renovation project.  However, due to the lack of furniture at the moment, it was air mattresses all round and it got me thinking about creating the perfect guest rooms for our guests in the future.  

Relaxing and Country Style Bedroom
I really want my home decor to flow easily from room to room so I will be, of course, focusing on a neutral base for these rooms.  Guest rooms have to be relaxing and simple, with everything that your visitors require.  

Feminine and French Inspired Curtains

Dramatic Head Board

Chic Greys and Taupes

Elegant Suite
I want the chicness and sophistication of a boutique hotel but with the homeliness of a country retreat. 

Boutique Hotel Chic
Accessories wise, I love the idea of a small vase of water and two water glasses on the bedside table, towels perched at the end of the bed...but not as far as chocolates on the pillows!  Because, remember, you do want your guests to eventually leave, so don't make them too comfortable in their stylish surroundings!  

Now I must get back to creating the website...can't wait for you all to see it!
