They have impeccable taste, a keen eye for design, and the uncanny ability to decorate a mean Christmas tree—and they’re our Design Council 2015!

Decorating a Christmas tree in Technicolor takes creativity, an eye for detail, and some out-of-the-box thinking. We handpicked designers from all over the blogosphere to be members of this year’s Design Council, and challenged them to decorate a Christmas tree in non-traditional holiday colors—with stunning results! These bloggers represent the Treetopian mantra of marching to the beat of a different drummer boy, and we are thrilled to have each of them in Treetopia’s Design Council 2015: Christmas in Technicolor.
