With the winter festivities coming our way, that means that we’ll be having more and more friends and family at our places. Although this is something that we look forward to, with showcasing our design choices and having our loved ones try our new recipes, there’s a lot that goes into it. We believe that the success of a holiday gathering is in the details. To create a welcoming environment it’s all about the right music, rich inviting smells, and plenty of soft seating to provide the perfect spot for great conversation. But one space often goes overlooked- the guest bathroom. Our own guest experience tells us that a well set up bathroom with luxurious soaps and a soft towel at hand, makes us feel extra welcomed.

For shared meals or evening drinks, a simple candle, hand towel and high quality hand soap will do the trick. We recommend a scented candle or votive which will create a warm glow when the lights are off.

For guests that are staying overnight, have a stack of crisp white bath towels ready for them to use. If you want to go the extra mile, have a tray with new toothbrushes, hand cream and your favorite room spray. With these essentials, you’ll be giving your guests a positive experience that will make them feel more at ease and excited to join in on the festivities.

Here are a few of our favorite guest bathroom finds that we will be stocking up on for our holiday gatherings:
