Guest bedroom styling ideas for a warm welcome this Christmas
The festive season is upon us, and it's time to prepare your home to welcome guests for Christmas. The guest bedroom is an area that's sometimes overlooked, but a few thoughtful touches can truly make overnight visitors feel comfortable, welcome and ready for a good night's sleep.
Today, we'll explore how to transform your guest bedroom into a warm and inviting Christmas retreat with some quick and easy styling ideas.
Embrace warmth with wool blankets
Nothing says comfort like a high-quality wool blanket, and it's a versatile addition to your guest bedroom. Everyone prefers a different temperature when they sleep and layered bedding made from natural materials allows guests to get things just right. Fold a wool blanket over the bed or drape it over a chair for a pop of colour and instant warmth. Our British-made wool blankets are not only a stylish accessory but also a practical one, ensuring your guests stay snug during the chilly Christmas nights.
Deck the walls with festive prints
Infuse the spirit of Christmas into your guest bedroom by adding some festive wall art. Opt for classic Christmas motifs like holly, mistletoe, or even a charming Christmas tree print. These subtle touches can bring a festive vibe to the room without overwhelming the décor. If you're preparing the room last minute, simply tuck a sprig of fresh holly on top of your existing pictures for a quick festive touch.
How can I make my guest room extra special?
Coordinated colour palette
When it comes to Christmas styling, stick to a coordinated colour palette. Traditional Christmas colours include deep reds, forest greens, and rich golds. Incorporate these hues into your guest bedroom through pillows, throws, or small decorative items. The warm, inviting colours will make your guests feel right at home.
Soft lighting for ambiance
Create a cosy and intimate atmosphere with soft, warm lighting. Swap out bright overhead lights for table lamps or fairy lights. A soft, gentle glow will make your guest bedroom feel like a haven of tranquillity during the Christmas season allowing guests to escape the hustle and bustle if they wish.

Thoughtful touches for a hotel-like experience
Don't forget the little extras that can make your guests' stay more comfortable. Offer a small flask of hot chocolate (or maybe even a glass of brandy) for a nightcap by the bedside and a few festive biscuits is a thoughtful gesture that adds to the Christmas spirit.
Festive bedding and cushions
Give your guest bed a festive makeover with winter themed bedding or a Christmassy cushion or two. Checked patterns and minimal winter motifs, such as snowflakes or evergreen foliage prints, are a subtle nod to the season.
