‘Tis the season to celebrate over festive feasts with the ones you cherish the most.
Here’s how our founder, Laura Nezri, sparks the Christmas spirit when hosting for the holidays!

What are your top tips for a well-styled holiday table?

I usually go for a quick, laid back and effortless set up that brings authenticity to my decor! Hence, I add accessories I already have at hand, whether they are fresh flowers, dried eucalyptus leaves, our terracotta textured vases or scented candles. These unifying pieces complement each other and will harmonize beautifully in the space!

What’s the must-have to own when creating the perfect holiday table ?

Timeless tableware! I always start with a solid base: either with our Clay tablecloth or our Sand Washed Linen flat sheet that I often use as a tablecloth. I love the functional aspect to our flat sheets, as they give us the opportunity to repurpose them in a versatile and sustainable way!

What colours do you privilege on your holiday table setting?

I privilege minimal tones throughout all my table linens. This gives me the freedom to add pops of colours with some of my favorite decor accents, such as our terracotta vases. Thanks to the neutral palette of our home collections, any of our accessories will unpretentiously add character to your table.

How do you set the mood when hosting for the holidays?

Lighting, scents and music are all very important! I like to trigger all the senses. A good neutral base of fabrics really lets me add colours and textures with more freedom. It lets me create a table where people are sitting down to have an experience, not just a meal.
