Creating a Guest Room That Feels Like a Hamptons Hideaway

A guest room is a place that should be welcoming, comfortable and cozy. You want to make your guests feel right at home, or even better, as if they’re in a retreat.

Your first goal when designing a Hamptons guest bedroom should be a space that feels clean and simple.

If you want your guests to relax, you don’t want to offer them a space that’s cluttered or has too many bright colours or patterns. Instead, opt for simple, neutral colour palettes with perhaps a small pop of colour in the form of throw pillows or a statement wall. You might create a statement wall using wallpaper with a classic pattern.

The bed is really the focal point of a guestroom, so layer pillows and fresh, crisp linens, adding texture and volume.

Choose a bedhead that’s beautifully upholstered, and you might also add double beds into a guestroom to maximise your use of the space.

Symmetry in furnishings, lighting and accessories can be visually pleasing in a guest room and functional at the same time.

To open up a room and ensure it feels bright and airy, add mirrors as accessories and bring the drapes to the ceiling to create the illusion they’re higher.

Layer rugs on the floor to continue the addition of texture, and add bedside tables for convenience and to hold tableside lamps. Tableside lamps create a more ambient source of lighting than harsh overhead light.

As far as accessories, keep them minimal and not too personal in a guest space. Adding a bench at the foot of the bed can provide additional storage space for your visitors. Before guests arrive, the addition of fresh flowers can add a bit of colour and help them feel welcome.
