One decorating challenge that I frequently encounter from my clients is how to handle a long rectangular shaped room. To help those of you out with this decorating dilemma, I want to offer a few tips on how to break up a long narrow room into zones or functions. Let’s review an example.
As we step into December, it’s time to decorate the outside of our homes for the upcoming holiday. When I was young, we had a family tradition that my mother created, who was fun, and an out-of-the-box decorator. Each Christmas there was a life-sized Santa on a candy cane painted ladder crawling in the window of our second story home. On the roof, there was an elf hanging over the ledge (yes, my father would go up on the roof to hang) with spotlights. It was the highlight of our outdoor decor, and I remember people driving and walking by to take a look. I would encourage you to have fun with your outdoor holiday decorating, and do the unexpected! Do something unique that your family would enjoy and create a new tradition that everyone will remember!
