Gracious Spaces & Book Club

Featuring places where grace & civility abound....

Whether it is a living room, a medical reception area, a healing room, or a Fortune 500 foyer, Sunset & Magnolia will highlight what makes a truly hospitable space. This space could be your Facebook page, your Instagram, or in your local grocery store! We'll take a look at the commonalities truly hospitable spaces possess and ponder together how we can fill our world with more grace, more authenticity, and more civility. We'll highlight those out there doing Graciousness well, whether it be in interior design, hospitality, or in a business that just “gets it.” On a monthly basis, we will also feature a book related to grace & civility, with the hope of starting a serious discussion around how to create more Gracious Spaces.
