Recently, I moved to my house (Ichihara city) from Funabashi city in July and I'm no longer to live in appartement.
Until apart from there, the appartement was decorated by a lot of pictures of Europe.
The most of favourite picture is Parga in Greece.
The reason why I chose, I have ever seen to the beach such as Okinawa, Fiji, New Zealand and so on,
but Greece is especially beautiful that bring about the different of blue tone, being along with colourful roofs...Even though I have never been to here, I imaged that will never forget it once I visit there.
By means of another coordination, I put some souvenirs on the desk. for instance, Seashell strap, Fiji soap, and travelled brochures.
if I have a chance to go to Europe, I want to visit to the Netherlands.
because, It's a good security, beautiful flowers, and enjoy around the cities by bicycle.
I'm going to be plan from now!
Therefore, My room is getting a lots ideas that looks like a life of Europe!
Comfortable mattresses, both flat and thick pillows, cotton quilts, extra sheets and blankets.
local artwork, desert decor as we are in Arizona, kids room has a camping theme and pug dog sheets and decor.
Great question. I have two pillows/per person on every bed, one firm and one soft. I try to do the bed in layers with soft sheets and a combination of a coverlet and a light or heavy comforter depending on the seasons. I don't go for generic. We use the apartment for ourselves and family so we think of it as "sharing" our family guest house rather than an investment property. So I used our own furniture or shopped estate sales for interesting pieces that fit a 1920's apartment on the National Historic register.
I look for soft rugs on the hardwood floors so it's comfortable for bare feet. I try to keep the colors neutral and soft. I keep lights at the bedside. And I try to find soothing framed pictures to have on the walls.
I do have alarm clocks but realized so many people just use their phones I often find them unplugged.
We get a lot of comments from guests about how much it feels like coming "home" at the end of the day. (I inspire to get my own house that uncluttered) :-).
I tried to upload a photo but the system is giving errors today 🙂
For us the most important thing is how our guests feel.
We want our guests to feel comfortable, invited, and safe.
For comfort we try to keep a palette that is neutral with a touch of color so that they aren’t over stimulated. We also have extra blankets and pillows.
To convey invitation we make sure the sheets are crisp, the room is spotless, and there is no clutter.
For safety we make sure the windows are covered.
I think it helps if you imagine yourself as the guest and think of what you would want or need - then provide that.
Below we have included some of examples from our homes.
Hi I have a simply theme and I don’t go high end on everything. I am not in a tourist area. I have a functional, comfortable, home type theme. I can’t afford the high end bedding, etc. my reviews are all very good. Always clean and comfortable.
I agree with @Miriam619
You don’t always have to go high end. High end does not = positive experience.
I LOVE cozy bedding!!! Don’t get me wrong. It’s just sometimes that’s not wise or possible.
For example one of our homes hosts large families going to Disney. They aren’t always the most careful guests and we have a high volume of children under 10.
Just by making sure you have quality items and meeting the needs of the guests is good. You can exceed their expectations with how you treat them and how you make them feel during their stay.
Great tips by way @Phil-and-Lacy0, and I love Key Largo! I was there in 2010 on a road trip down to Key West🙂
Where do you usually purchase bedding, furniture, and other items from? @Phil-and-Lacy0
Key Largo is home. What I like is you can’t see anything from the our only road. Everything is hidden.
We usually purchase from HomeGoods. That’s our favorite. We can usually find quality items at a fraction of the cost. Ikea does a great job as well.
I agree Home goods and Big Lots Have been good sources for interesting decor and bedding blankets & table settings. If in California Ross & DeDes are good places to find discounted kitchen wear and decor.
the bedspreads are easy to wash and they don’t tear up the washer. Also it keeps them cleaner and they are reversible
The studio was kept like the previous owner designed it . I’m going to paste my listings if you want to see them as well as the one in Buras

@Quincy what determines which threads are top of the Top category? It seems odd that this one is given no one has responded
Great question @Mike-And-Jane0! This is usually determined on how many thumbs up a topic gets.
Of course, it also depends if a member is willing to share their insights on a specific topic. Some might just read the topic and give it a thumbs up, and some choose to leave a reply behind 🙂
