Holiday Prep 101
To help you give your home a WOW factor before your holiday guests arrive, we’ll do a series of 3 blog posts with tips on how to whip your house into shape for the holidays. Our first suggestion:
*Start at the beginning. Take a good, hard look at your entry hall. This is the first indoor area your guests will see, so it’s got to be good, right? A few tips: Mirrors are always great in these spaces—they reflect light, make it brighter and seem larger. And--a mirror will allow you and your guests to check yourselves in the mirror on the way in or out.
A mirror in your entry hall will bring a sense of refreshment and calm to visitors, BUT--make sure the mirror does not directly face the door (that is considered bad Feng Shui).

*Think about scale. If your entry hall is small, you don’t want your guests to feel cramped. Make sure that your decor items are a good fit for the space.
*Clear out clutter. Don’t have an entry hall, but want to spruce up your hallways in general? Try this: clear out wall clutter. Hallways can be narrow spaces, and you want to avoid closing them in. And…it can be difficult to step back and admire artwork or photographs in a narrow hallway, so chances are that they’d “show” better elsewhere.
