It’s nearly the most wonderful time of the year. And with all that hot cocoa, pumpkin spice and holiday cheer comes something else… guests. What better time than now to whip your guest bedroom into shape? And what better sale is there to do it with than Serena & Lily’s Friends & Family sale?

Serena & Lily believes living well begins at home. There’s a reason they’re known for their luxurious bedding and refined, but relaxed coastal style. It’s welcoming, for both you and your guests. Refresh your space by shopping the Serena & Lily’s Friend and Family sale, where everything is 20% off from October 2-14. (Some exclusions apply.)

Keep these simple tips in mind to create a space your guests will want to come back to again and again. (Assuming you’re into guests year round.)

1. Create a warm welcome with minimalist decor.

Keep guest room decor simple, clean and inviting. Think of what makes your favorite hotel special. It’s likely clutter free, with lots of little luxuries thrown in.



2. Make a comfortable & well-dressed bed.

Invest in a really good mattress and clean, high quality bedding. We like to start with a white comforter and change out the linens and pillows seasonally. Don’t forget to add in a throw at the end of the bed. It adds style, plus it comes in handy for colder nights. We even store a few extra blankets, just in case, in a hamper nearby.



3. Provide fresh linens.

You never know when a guest may need an extra set of bed or bath linens. Accidents happen! Make both available. If you’re lucky, you may even get a guest who insists on using the extra bedding to make the bed when they leave.




Here are a few of our favorite pairings for a well-dressed bed. Not the hosting type? That’s okay. You can shop these linen pairings for your own bed. We won’t tell:


Clean & Crisp 1 | 2 | 3| 4 | 5 Soft & Natural 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5
Modern Prep 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5
