The 2022 holiday season is in full swing! And one of the things we most look forward to is hosting overnight guests: out of town family, friends, and loved ones who come to stay for the holidays. Festive dinners, long afternoon walks, and cozy nights playing board games by the fire? Yes, please!
But for some of us, these beloved traditions have been put on hold for the past couple of years. And while we can’t wait to make some new memories, our homes may need a little attention before welcoming guests this holiday. The Fine Linen and Bath design team is here with some quick and easy suggestions for sprucing up your space so that you can offer your guests the most comfortable visit ever.
- Accessorize for beauty and function. Great bathroom accessories are as useful as they are beautiful. And you’ll never go wrong with pieces from the new marble bath accessory collection from SFERRA, the luxury Italian linen manufacturer. Choose from Pietra, tastefully accented with metal details in a simple form and design, or Velina, which features rounded edges and natural marbled veins in a soft Dove palette that channels tranquility and refinement.

- Make sure your towels are fresh and well-stocked. The spa-like luxury of the Abyss Super Pile towel in white is always a hit with guests; you can learn more about why Super Pile is so special here. Add to the spa-like vibe and five-star feel by hanging a heavy white robe on the bathroom door for your guests to use. We love the plush velour feel of the SFERRA Fairfield Robe, made of 100% Cotton with a shawl collar and two patch pockets. Another staff favorite is the Peacock Alley Jubilee Textured Bathrobe, in heavy weight 100 percent cotton terry with a ruched border on collar and cuff. Pro tip: Heritage Park All-Purpose Laundry Detergent is perfect for cleaning your luxury towels and cotton bath robes. Plant-based, pH-neutral, and effective while preserving the natural beauty of cotton fiber.

Comforters and pillows feature clouds of premium white down, covered in silky soft, high-thread count ticking and finished with meticulous tailoring.

Scandia Home Pillows and Comforters
- Style the nightstand with something pretty and practical: a classic or whimsical fabric tissue box cover from Matouk. Choose from a variety of patterns, including styles from the Matouk Schumacher fabric collection. (These are also the perfect hostess gift for when you’re the guest).

- Create a welcoming corner in the bedroom with a stylish throw on a comfy chair. This gives your guests a place to retreat and regroup when they need a little solo time. We love the SFERRA Terzo throw, made in Portugal of 100% yarn-dyed cotton with twisted fringe. For a warmer feel, choose the Alashan Cashmere throw; 100 percent cashmere.
