When it comes to having guests in the house, I always try to make them feel at home. I find that a few touches can be really thoughtful and welcoming, just what your friend needs when they visit. I have a few tips and tricks to share that work well plus they give a personal touch!
:: Think outside the "box" | The Jewelry Box in ash by Menu ( can be found at Room21.no ) can serve as more than just an organizer for jewelry , here I fill it with cotton pads, a travel size hand cream, some cotton swabs, anything that my guest would want to have in the bathroom for their day-night routine care. The box is very versatile since its lid also has a mirror in one side that can conveniently be propped up, while when it closes the top part can be used for a space to lay your watch or rings before sleep, so they can be easily found next day in the morning.
:: Use your travel sized goodies | Something else I always do, is leave travel sized essentials from my favorite brands for my guests to use. This way they get to try my most loved products without having to have an extra full size, plus I can always refill them easily and take them with me when I travel!
:: Mini soaps trick | I always get one of the small soaps when I visit hotels from the bathroom. I love bringing them back and using them, they remind me of the time I spend while on holidays , the smell just brings me back. With my traveling however they tend to accumulate so, I find that filling a jar or a vase with mini soaps (check last photo) not only is useful but it looks quite nice as well! Plus all the hotels tend to have great brands, my vase is filled with Diptyque, Aesop, Penhaligon's etc Whats not to love when it comes to having such variety?
