OH, CHRISTMAS TREE!
This is a case of “more IS more“! Many different leaves in color and texture and glitz! Beautiful!!!
*Metalic and sparkle can be mixed for a very rich look
*Decorating a tree from the inner branches out gives depth and interest to your overall design.
*Don’t ignore the base or the top of the tree. Have something interesting to look at so the eye travels the whole length of the tree.
*Using wide ribbon as garland adds softness and color.
*Repeat, repeat, repeat elements for a cohesive look.
*Sometimes less IS NOT more!
*Think outside the ornament box. Use greens, and picks of berries. Find interesting things to nestle in the tree.
*Get inspired, look for ideas to use as a springboard to create looks you love.
*Don’t overtink it. If you love it, then it’s right!
I will be sharing several more trees (and more decorating tips) from Winterthur along with my own tree that has been inspired by these beauties!
