TT: What is your decorating mantra?
Jade: Life is simple and so should be your style.
TT: Best decorating advice you want to share with your readers?
Jade: Do YOU! It’s ok to get inspiration from someone else’s style but always stay true to the things that make you feel peaceful and happy.
TT: What room or specific area of the home do you find most challenging to decorate for the holidays? Any tips on styling this specific area?
Jade: Honestly none! I always bring the holiday spirit to each and every room, some more than others for sure! I believe there should be one designated room that has your main tree and decor in but it’s easy to add a few miniature trees in other rooms in your home. Try it- it feels GREAT!
TT: What are the first and last steps when decorating a Christmas tree in Technicolor?
Jade: I think when decorating any tree the first thing you should do is fill the negative spaces. Filling them helps out a lot when you start adding ornaments and goodies on the tree. Plus it makes it look fuller and we all need a full tree! The last step is sitting down on a chair in front of your tree toasting to it’s beauty!
TT: Decorating advice for your readers who want to decorate in Technicolor for the holidays?
Jade: You know deep down what colors make you happy and feel good inside… Find the tree that makes you feel warm and fuzzy then worry about the decorations later. You would be surprised how much a colorful tree can change the whole ambiance in your home!
TT: What other holiday would your Technicolor tree be perfect for? For sure
Jade: Valentine’s day! I actually think I will keep it up and put clear all disco ornaments on it around the first of the year. Since I live in Louisiana I might just might add some Mardi Gras ornaments to it, hehe!
