Make it Cozy
I love that fur throws make a comeback every year as the temperatures dip and the holidays approach. It doesn’t have to be real to be chic, and I’d love to cozy up on the couch under a soft faux-fur throw with a stack of holiday decorating magazines to read.
Make it Stylish
We have more drop-in visitors to the house throughout the holiday season, so it’s nice to have the house looking its best (even if we haven’t completely settled in and unpacked our millions of boxes of books yet). Little touches, like adding a crazy wire fruit bowl or a basket abstracted from squares go a long way, and both would look festive sitting out on the counter or at the center of the table. They could be part of the decorating too, if you fill them with ornaments and other pretty holiday baubles.
Make it Inviting
I’ve only recently started to like coffee, so now I love the idea of being able to make and serve up coffee shop drinks from home. What better to offer your guests with a slice of pie for dessert, right? (Just don’t ask us to bake said pie. Or oven’s temperature is very much a guessing game.)
It’s pretty appealing to stay in and make a nice drink for curling up with those aforementioned magazines under the cozy throw, too. And a little caramel pecan bark within reach wouldn’t hurt.
