Welcome Home: A Cozy Minimalist Guide to Decorating and Hosting All Year Round
Welcome Home aims to provide tips for hosting and decorating in what the author terms a cozy minimalist style. The best thing about it is the fact that she doesn’t encourage you to run out and buy more stuff. She thinks shopping your own home for things you already have will help you create a cozy inviting place to live and host friends and family.
I’m happy that this book made me realize that decorating or creating a cozy home doesn’t have to be difficult, complicated, or costly. With the tips within, you should be able to incorporate seasonal changes that make a space more cozy and enjoyable without adding loads of trinkets or store-bought items. The author suggests hosting a gathering that guests will remember by focusing on the mood, the food, and the people. Her signature plan is to provide two foods from scratch and one special drink, presented in a fun and entertaining way for guests.
Overall, this was a book I enjoyed. It was well written and had some lovely photos as well as a beautiful cover. But I did find it a tad repetitious. Luckily the author provides a lot of personal stories and suggestions from her own experiences.
