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.
Transitional/Eclectic: For homes that blend the warmth of traditional design with and the homeowner’s own style – there is lots of room for creativity. Choose from an array scents that are earthy such as scents with herbs, sea salt, eucalyptus, fruits or bordeaux.
Contemporary/Minimalist: For homes with open spaces, clean lines, light colors, simply designed furnishings & minimal décor. Choose clean scents such as citrus, cotton & linen.
French Country/Romantic/Floral: Homes filled with vintage and reclaimed furnishings, floral fabrics and layered décor. Turn to home fragrance with floral and sweet notes of rose, lavender, gardenia and vanilla.
