Make Room for Summer Guests

Start with a free 15 minute room editing consultation from Galla Studio

West Chester, PA, May 21, 2009 --( Memorial Day weekend marks the start of the summer season, a time often shared with family and friends. Are you prepared for guests?

Jean Gallagher, owner of Galla Studio, is making your job as a host easier. Until June 30, 2009, she is offering a free room editing consultation to those who want to create a special place for summer guests.

Ms. Gallagher is an expert at designing inviting interiors. Welcome your guests to a space of their own by starting with room editing. Strip down the contents of the guest room, leaving items that are functional and enjoyable. Choose pieces that do double duty—a nightstand that provides storage, a chair that pulls out into a bed, a bench that serves as seating or a luggage holder—and get rid of the clutter, out of season clothing, and unfinished projects that mess up many guest rooms.

“You may need something new to make your room function well, but you can make your guests feel at home without breaking the bank,” stated Gallagher. “Repurpose furniture and accessories you already own. Choose complementary colors to tie a mix of materials, styles, and textures together. And keep it simple. You’ll lighten your space visually and have less to dust, too.”

It’s not too late to create that special guest space.
