TT: Best decorating advice you want to share with your readers?
When decorating a Christmas tree, vary your ornaments in size and texture to add interest. Also remember to add simple glass ornament deeper inside the tree to create depth.
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?
I think the bathroom can be a little tricky because of the lack of space. You can easily add holiday cheer with fragrant candles, adding mini wreaths to the walls and a garland over the mirror.
TT: What was your craziest/funniest/most unlikely source of inspiration for a holiday theme?
One year when I owned a children’s clothing shop I decorated my tree in vintage children’s toys and paper dolls. It was delightful to many children.
TT: How did you decide on the color combination for your tree?
I am loving the white, gold and silver color theme but decided to add that pop of red to give it that Scandinavian touch.
TT: Is there a specific part of your Technicolor tree you want to highlight?
I added the pretty DIY paper birds that I designed and made a few years ago as a sweet reminder of my mother.
TT: Best part of decorating your Treetopia Tree?
Opening the box and finding the gorgeous flocked tree. Once assembled it looked to real and was easy to add our colorful touches to.
