The Entryway Sets The Tone

What you see in the first five minutes of being somewhere sets a tone for how you feel. When you are entertaining, your entryway sets the tone for your gathering.  Make sure it feels warm and inviting when you enter your home. Here are some tips for success.  Remove clutter -no one wants to be greeted with your stacks of mail or a pile of shoes! Make sure there is proper lighting. Mirrors are a great way to increase the light in a space. Add a clear spot for guests coats- coat tree, bench, or closet space. Finally, festive decorations are a great touch to increase the warm welcome.

Ottomans- Perfect for the Holidays!

Ottomans are a very versatile piece of furniture- especially around the holidays! Use an ottoman for extra seating that can be easily moved where needed. Place a tray on an ottoman and it can be used as a coffee table.  Utilize the storage compartment of a storage ottoman to stow extra items out of the sight of guests. Place an ottoman in 

your entryway to sit on while tying shoes or to store guest's coats on when entertaining.  Lastly, use an ottoman to prop your feet up on and relax after a holiday gathering!

Large Art on a Budget

Large artwork is a great way to decorate a wall.  Artwork in a large size can often be expensive, though.  A great alternative is to group smaller pieces of artwork together.  Smaller artwork is typically less expensive to purchase.  You could also use several smaller pieces you already own. The key is to use artwork with a common element for the best results. This could be the color of frame, compatible themes or similar colors in the pieces.
