We love this… Summer holidays are a special time. For an extended period, things seem to be on the move constantly. It could be you biking around in Amsterdam, perhaps catching up with an old friend – or making new ones; or friends from all over the world may be stopping by your town. What better place for them to crash than at yours so you can top up on quality time together? Get that guest room ready so that you can invite those old friends over to stay the night.

Bedlinen in a cool print will add some fun to bedtime for your guest and maybe set the scene for some interesting dreams. In any case, a good night’s sleep is always welcome and for that you need some nice, fresh linens. H&M Home bed linen, £24.99

Decorating a room in an interesting and personal way is all about the details. Broste Copenhagen houses plenty of beautiful and quirky accessories for your home, such as the fun golden bugs and pear bowl and some gorgeous vases. They will certainly provide the icing on top and elevate whichever room you choose to put them in. Broste Copenhagen gold top Emily vase, pack of two, £20; gold London container, £43; golden bugs, pack of three, £78; pear bowl, £26; flower candlestick, £26; tall Lines vase, £20; green Curves box, £7

In case your guest is staying longer than a weekend, or just does not want to live out of a suitcase, a cabinet is a necessary item in your guest room. When the room is vacant, use the cabinet to store linens or towels and whatnot. A2 Designers Collect cabinet, £1,104

Escaping work tasks can sometimes prove difficult, even on vacation, so a little desk set-up will help a friend in need of a quiet place to catch up on a few emails or finish up a bit of work while out of town. This half desk does not take up a great deal of space and is easy to squeeze in. Skagerak Georg stool, £169; Georg mirror, £106; Georg table, £382

We all have different habits for when we like to jump under the covers, which means that your guest may have a little extra time to kill at night to read a book or just chill a bit while you crash out for the night. This cute lamp is a coffee or bedside table must-have. Bloomingville lamp, £175
