Entertaining has always been one of the exciting parts of homeownership; we light candles, set tables, and prepare food and cocktails in the hopes of creating a special gathering that our guests will remember. This is the challenge of every host and a challenge that is met with great joy for those who truly love to entertain.
Of course, a large part of a sophisticated gathering is the décor of the environment in which guests are gathering. Homeowners, therefore, put a lot of attention into their home décor – not only to make themselves and their families as comfortable as possible, but also to create an environment that is warm and welcoming to guests.
To this end, a family room or living room – where guests are likely to congregate – will often receive the most attention from homeowners; outfitting the room with furniture, wall art, and a host of accessories that most reflect their personality and style.
Grandfather clocks were once a special item to have in a home; mostly because the handcraftsmanship associated with creating a grandfather clock resulted in high prices that most average homeowners couldn’t afford. Today, while most of us are able to afford the grandfather clock of our choosing, they are still considered special items to have in a home; those pieces that will likely become family heirlooms that are passed from generation to generation.
But for now, grandfather clocks are able to create an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere that will allow family and friends to gather comfortably.
