The holiday season will be here before you know it, and with it some of the best opportunities to welcome guests into your home. Of course, entertaining is never easy, which is why we’re dedicating this edition of Linen Club to help you get your home ready for guests again.
Let’s get started.
SETTING THE SCENE
Setting the table is one thing, but creating a welcoming ambience for guests is just as important.
Sometimes all you need to create the perfect space is an extra splash of colour, which is why artificial flowers, like these from Rogue are perfect. Not only do they inject a fresh, seasonal feel they also brighten up your home with authentic colours that will have even your most eagle-eyed guest fooled.
The key to creating unforgettable dining experiences isn’t just in your food choices, but also in your dinnerware selection.
Good dinnerware should complement your food and dial up the overall feel of the occasion. So, if you are looking for something timeless with a festive feel, this 16-piece dinner set from Soren is perfect for smaller get-togethers. The gold speckles bring personality, while the classic white colouring helps you pair it with just about any cutlery set (as seen here with the Smith+Nobel Arte Cutlery in Gold).
KEEP EVERYONE COMFY
Don’t be deceived by its plush look, velvet is surprisingly cool when spun from natural fibres, making it the perfect cushion companion as seen in these Catania Velvet Piping Cushions. Just as comfortable on the couch as they are on the bed, these are the perfect choice for an extra touch of softness – pair with the Acacia Quilt Cover Set for the perfect guest bedroom.
However, if you really want to bring a touch of luxury into your guest bedroom, look no further than these hotel quality Egyptian cotton bed sheets – anyone that sleeps on them will be singing your praises!
Of course, entertaining isn’t just about the dinner table or the lounge room – good hosts know the importance of comfort extends far further. And, in saying this – there is nothing comfier than velvet. Tracing its origins back to the ancient souks of Baghdad, few fabrics are as versatile as velvet. Prized for its soft look and feel, velvet in all its forms is a sure-fire way to bring a touch of luxury into your home.
That wraps another addition of Linen Club.
