“We’ve forgotten how good it is to have unhurried, uncurated experiences in the company of others, in real time, with real conversation. These pages are a reminder that all entertaining requires is a bit of thoughtfulness in order to make our homes the kind of intimate and comfy spaces that people love to gather in, and how rich our lives become when we take the time to regularly open our doors.”

This was one of the many quotes that I underlined and starred in Julie Pointer Adams book Wabi-Sabi Welcome, and it’s managed to stick with me, permeating my approach to cooking, decorating, and inviting friends into my home in recent weeks. Like Julie herself, the book is both inspiring and humble, a celebration of beauty and imperfection, and more than anything, it reminded me that entertaining can be one of life’s deepest joys when we embrace it as an opportunity to share our true selves and connect with others. As she created the book, Julie travelled the globe illuminating the lessons from other cultures (in Denmark, California, France, Italy, and Japan) that serve as inspiration for our own journeys in discovering the good life, and today I couldn’t be more excited to share our interview in which Julie shared her personal approach to hosting at home. Read on for her well-lived secrets, the beautiful images she captured at a Denmark friend’s outdoor dinner party, and all the inspiration you need to throw open the doors, invite a few friends over, and just enjoy the moment.
