Hosting-Friendly Home Design

The holidays are right around the corner, and besides visions of sugarplums dancing through our heads, we’re thinking a lot about hosting lately. When it comes to celebrating Christmas and the New Year, most of us picture gathering at home with our nearest and dearest.

There’s a reason so many famous Christmas songs mention being home for the holidays. Who doesn’t want to be somewhere warm, familiar, and welcoming during this time of year? The weather outside does get mightly frightful in the Midwest; we need cozy places where we can retreat and recharge our batteries!

One of the reasons we love helping families build homes is because we get to design around their values. More and more these days, our clients’ create spaces made for hospitality. Hosting people with comfort and elegance is an art, and it’s become a significant trend in home design.

Want a better idea of the kind of spaces we’re talking about? Scroll below for a few of our favorite examples of client’s hosting-friendly homes. From rocking around the Christmas tree to silent nights, these spaces will have you ready to deck the halls with the people you love!
