A warm welcome for overnight guests can be as simple as a fresh snip of foliage or flowers (ideally something perfumed and nostalgic, such as gardenias or jasmine) and a favourite book or magazine by the bed for night-time reading - along with that guestroom essential, a good bedside lamp!
I love both planned and impromptu sleepovers, and believe thoughtful touches can leave a lovely and lasting impression on guests. For inspiration, think back to a favourite holiday or hotel room you’ve stayed in and allow yourself plenty of time to make your guestroom superhost-ready.
