f there’s one classic end of year decoration that invites the Christmas spirit into the home and brings a bit of nature and warmth to the coldness of December, it has to be the Christmas tree. Associated with festivities and gifts, the tree draws everyone’s attention and thus calls for some special care. Without stopping the kids from adding their personal touches, introduce a theme such as revisiting the classic Christmas by using colours that reflect the traditional ones of Christmastime, using graphic and contemporary forms. Find the golden garland and the red bauble a little kitsch? Not if they’re used as small touches that are well balanced and tempered by the sleek silhouettes of natural elements such as animals, mountains, snowflakes… The overall effect is warm and festive without being visual overpowering.
