Hosting Tips For Summer

29 Nov, 2022

Create an Inviting Home

The time of year is fast approaching where we welcome guests into our homes for the festive and summer seasons. We’re planning ahead, thinking about who we’ll be hosting and getting organised to ensure our visitors will feel comfortable and happy in our home. Transform your spare bedroom into a sanctuary for guests where they can rest and nap post-Christmas lunch and enjoy sleep ins following long evenings of socialising. From simple gestures like fresh flowers and a fragrant candle, to hotel quality bedding, there are plenty of ways to make your guests feel at home.
Read on to discover our tips ready for a summer of hosting.


Start Afresh

Prepare your home ready for entertaining and hosting friends and family this summer. Deep clean and declutter your guest bedroom and bathroom to offer beautifully calm spaces for them to enjoy. Make space for your guests to store their toiletries, hang their clothes and stack their holiday reading. Before they arrive, add thoughtful details to the guest bedroom of fresh flowers, a beautiful candle or diffuser, bottles of sparkling mineral water and a soft throw to wrap up in for alfresco evenings.

The Guest Bathroom

Create a truly luxurious experience for your guests by offering them soft, plush towels to enjoy during their stay. Our convenient towel bundles include everything you need for an easy bathroom refresh, perfect for summer visitors and beyond. Style your guest bathroom to impress with a fragrant candle or diffuser and for that ‘hotel at home’ feel, hang a comfy, plush robe behind the door to use after bathing.


The Guest Bed – Base Layers

Refresh the base layers on your guest bedroom bed with beautiful essentials ready for the busy hosting season. From bed skirts, mattress protectors and fresh sheets to duvet inners and pillows, discover pieces to make sleeping at your place blissfully dreamy. For a sustainable and approachable summer upgrade, try our organic cotton mattress topper and duvet inner – the perfect weight for the warmer weather (and perfect as extra layers in winter). With a bed this comfy, your guests may never want to leave!

Top Tip – air your duvet and pillow inners in warm doses of sunshine to reduce moisture and add lofty lightness.


The Guest Bed – Summer Style

Complete your guest bed with beautiful bed linen and stylish finishing touches. Keep it simple and calm with a soft, neutral palette or embrace a sense of whimsy and fun with pattern and colour. Choose a plain or patterned duvet cover with sheets or opt for a lighter cotton quilt with sheets for the warmer nights of summer. Add extra coordinating pillows and cushions for guests to lean against while reading or relaxing in bed and a knitted throw or soft blanket to pull up for afternoon siestas.


A Linen Cupboard Legacy

Our bed linen collections are crafted from the finest natural and sustainable fabrics, which if cared for correctly, will last you for years to come. Upgrading your bedding for guests will result in a linen cupboard of essentials you’ll turn to again and again, for many summers of hosting to come.
