Does the gathering room provide sociable seating areas?
Is the gathering room spacious and functional?
Does the gathering room have a defined entrance?
Glad you are here today. Always enjoy the visit. Wishing all a Merry Christmas...
Can't you tell, I get so excited this time of the year? It's another reason to spend time with family and friends.
I am also excited to share what works for me during the holiday!
entertaining can be very stressful
on the other hand,
it is an enjoyable occasion as quality time is spent together.
with the WOW Factor
I just want to "WOW" each guest with a festive and welcoming entryway,
the foyer serves as a pass through,
an easy access to the living area, which is crucial at this point.
So happy when my guest mingle, navigating freely around the room
because of the layout
(the heaviest piece of furnishings anchored along the longest wall),
not against the wall,
small- scale furniture mixed with big furnishings creating a balance for the room
less is more
I love the joyful noise
as conversations are engaged simply because of proper furnishing placement.
(sofa and small chairs facing each other creating a 1-on -1 conversation or a group conversation).
ample seating (an ottoman can serving double duty: seating, and a place to rest your glass.
How do I know my home is guest-friendly?
...the guest definitely
not rushed to leave....
Thanks for stopping by the Houz.
