DESIGN GURU: TURN YOUR GUEST ROOM INTO A SANCTUARY

 

Turn Your Guest Room Into A Sanctuary 

The holidays are on. Before you deck the halls, take some time to dress up your guest room. We asked interior designer Leslie Cotter for some quick suggestions that will help you get cozy quickly.


She’s the design mastermind behind the wildly successful Norton Commons raffle house for the Norton Children’s Hospital. During the rest of the year, she’s creating sophisticated interiors from Louisville to Lexington and guest rooms are a favorite element. “They’re too often an afterthought filled with leftover decor that didn’t work elsewhere,” she says.  Here, her ideas, from the Raffle Home guest room, that will help create a welcoming retreat.


Splurge someplace

Resist the urge to furnish the extra room with castoffs. Here, a fabulous fixture makes the room seem special.


Let there be light

Combine bedside and overhead lighting for comfort and convenience.


Indulge them

Soft throws (one for everyone) are a thoughtful, practical luxury.


Go tonal

Sticking with a range of similar hues will evoke a sense of calm.
