Entertain in Style

Taking a cue from Diwali, the peak holiday during the Indian festival season, we feel inspired to deck out our homes for the upcoming holidays.

Taking a cue from Diwali, the peak holiday during the Indian festival season, we feel inspired to deck out our homes for the upcoming holidays. The festive season is a time to celebrate at home with friends and family, there is an unspoken expectation of hosting in an open house manner where formal invitations give way to spontaneous drop-ins of friends of friends. Traditionally this is also a time for giving homes a seasonal update of d?cor and interiors. We spoke to the India based brand Good Earth about their favorite festive embellishments and we added in a few of our own for a full out global look.

 

 


LIGHT

Lanterns

The most decorative way to add candlelight.

 

Votives

Add glittering light to table settings and make a great hostess gift.

    

Candle Bases

Great way to cluster candles at different heights on tabletops.

 

Candles

The most evocative and subtle way to uplift the spirit of a space is with candles made with essential oils.

 


 

 

D?COR

Cushions and Poufs

The easiest way to transform a space is with new cushions, silk and velvet in jewel tones and lively prints. Poufs can be used for extra seating and give a relaxed vibe to any gathering.

 

Runners

Instantly dress up any table or console and make a wonderful gift.

 

Thaals

Large decorative metal trays that can hold votives and flowers.

 

Textiles

Layer up leather couches and seating with decadent blankets and textiles. This is an easy place to add vibrant color and pattern to your entire space.

 

Linens
The softest peshtemal towels and linens add a luxurious touch to any bathroom. For guests staying a few days, stock your bath with lavish cashmere bathrobes and Turkish soaps infused with olive oil.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ENTERTAINING

Tea Service

India?s chai culture is legendary and a new tea service for the season is an easy way to prepare for guests at anytime of day. Mint tea in Morocco is a way of life and a ceremony that unites friends, family and even business partners. Beautiful and bright tea glasses add a festive global touch to any gathering.

 

Dinner Service

A table setting of fine bone china tableware with gold or platinum accents is the surest way to make a festive statement for the hostess who likes to entertain in style.  We love to add texture to the table with hand woven baskets.

 

Silver

Silverware used with a formal dinner service instantly raises the style quotient to luxury.

 

Playing Cards

Lighthearted gambling is a tradition at the heart of this social season and a stylish set is the most perfect gift for the season.
