Temperatures are dropping in the Northern Hemisphere and we are embracing the best part of fall, gathering with friends and family. The brisk air naturally causes us to draw close to our loved ones, so it’s an ideal time to create a cozy mood in your space.
Whether you’re planning to host parties this season or preparing for relatives and friends to visit for the holidays, we have tips to help you and your guests embrace the abundance harvest season evokes:
1. Ambiance is Everything
As we know, hosting duties begin long before your guests arrive – setting the stage in your space with a seasonal, scented candle and swapping table lamps for overhead lighting engages your guests’ senses and calms any nerves right from the get-go. A glass of wine doesn’t hurt either ;)
2. Comfort is Queen
We know hygge’s moment has come (and perhaps already gone) but cozy never really goes out of fashion. The strategic use of warm fabrics and colors helps your guests leave their worries at the door and enjoy the comfort of a well-loved space.
3. Overnight Success
You want every guest to feel at home and also depart feeling calmer and more rested than when they arrived. Antique pieces with a history behind them bring a fantastical element into a guest bedroom – what could be a better recipe for sweet dreams?
As you’re planning your gatherings this season, the most important thing to keep in mind is this: when you feel at home, so do your guests. Your space can and should reflect your unique personality so allow that to shine through above all else!
