It might be tempting to stuff as much as possible into your space, but you really don't need more than the bare necessities to achieve prime office/guest room functionality. Chances are, your guests aren't going to need a giant armoire to store a few days' worth of belongings, just as you don't really need to display every award or work-related memento you've ever received.
