Want it Wednesday

Our guest suite in the basement is almost ready for some visitors (well it still needs a floor...and trim, window treatment and closet finishings, but you get the idea).  I am not allowed to share photos yet, I will convince Dave to do a guest post at some point to show the work done on the basement.    In the meantime, I am checking out some nice things we can decorate with.

I will probably try to get some things at Homesense, but I'll be looking for things like this:

Something simple for the side of the bed.  Maybe some colour or maybe something neutral.

They probably won't sell these types of pillows at Homesense, but I'll see what I can find:

(Jane is our subway station)

I like the colourful duvet covers and quilts but I think a neutral design will be more long lasting. Anthropologie has beautiful things to look at for inspiration. 

To make a welcoming guest room, I want to make sure I have provided the following:

Space in the closet and dresser for guests to unpack. 

Lots of towels, an extra blanket and pillows.  This will save them from having to ask for them.

The wifi password. 

Magazines or books to browse through.

Extra toiletries, like lotion, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, etc. in case they forgot anything.  I'll also pick up an extra hair dryer for the guest bathroom.

Tray with water glasses, snacks, gum, and subway tokens.

We don't have a TV in our guest room, which is always nice, but since most people have an ipad now, then it should be fine.


  1. Can't wait to see the final product! Great list!

  2. I like all your ideas for the guest suite. I look forward to seeing your final creation. Just a thought, if you can not find the pillow design you want you can create your own at Shutterfly, using your own photos, as well.
