hot-water carafe for early risers.
Just as in a B&B, guests in your home want
to feel self-sufficient and not burdensome.
Assuring a positive experience for them is
about the accoutrements, but ultimately it’s
really the welcoming attitude you extend, and
spending time together and enjoying one
another’s company that makes the difference.
“If you have consistency and passion about
hosting someone in your home, they will feel
special and that they are in a special place,”
says Cunningham. “We have repeat guests
who say they keep coming back because they
like the relaxed atmosphere, the comforts, the
nurturing—just the general warmth they feel
throughout the house. It’s a genuine refuge.
And we get that because we pay attention to
the details.” C

IN AN OLD Abbott and Costello movie
there was a scene in which Costello
pushed a hidden switch and walls and
furniture swirled to turn a bedroom
into a casino. That might not be your
need, but you may indeed want one of
your rooms to serve two purposes—
for instance, a home office that occasionally can double as a guest room.
One incredibly versatile item is
the Ravenna Pillow-Top Euro Lounger.
Various articulations make it a sofa,
a sofa with armrests, a lounger, a
split-back or a bed. It’s like five pieces
of furniture in one. The Ravenna
Lounger is upholstered in tufted Java
premium faux leather with contrast
tan baseball stitching, and is easy to
adapt to any of its uses. It requires
minimum care: dusting and an occasional wipe with a damp, soft cloth.
If the utility of the piece isn’t
enough for you, check out the value.
You can expect to pay twice as much,
or more, for similar pieces sold elsewhere. C
