When decorating our homes, we always have our sense of sight and touch in mind.  We create a room that is visually beautiful, and fill it with a variety of textures in our furnishings, accessories and textiles.

One other important element to considering when designing your home is your home’s scent.  A beautiful room layered with the right home fragrance will create a welcoming environment for all who enter.  Your home’s fragrance will also leave a lasting impression as our sense of smell has a strong link to our memory.

Scent can also set the mood for a special event.  Depending on the scent you choose, it has the power to relax, energize and uplift the mood of family and guests.

When choosing a home fragrance, whether using candles or a fragrance diffuser, natural is best.  Choose candles made of soy or beeswax with all-natural cotton wicks.

To find your home’s signature scent, let your home’s style & décor by your guide:

Farmhouse Chic:  Typically are homes featuring natural woods, light colors, organic & vinatge accents – look to scents that are herbal & green such as grasses, herbs and woods.

Modern Rustic & Industrial:  Think open floor plan, natural architectural elements, stone, wood, modern & eclectic furnishings.  Consider woody fragrances with notes of sandalwood, amber, bamboo or balsam.
