Hol­i­day dec­o­rat­ing need not be over the top

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES - By Con­nie Oliver

SHOP­PING malls are dec­o­rated, wish lists are grow­ing and chil­dren are try­ing their hard­est to be at their best. The hol­i­day sea­son is draw­ing to a close and Home Hard­ware, through it’s Beauti-Tone Paint Di­vi­sion, has project ideas to help. “The hol­i­day sea­son is the per­fect time to throw un­der­stated to the wind and go all out,” says Bev Bell, cre­ative di­rec­tor, Beauti-Tone Paint and Home Prod­ucts Di­vi­sion, Home Hard­ware Stores Limited. “But all out does not (nec­es­sar­ily) mean go­ing full Gris­wold! In­stead, very eas­ily and in­ex­pen­sively you can cre­ate the kind of beau­ti­ful and wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment that lets those near­est and dear­est know how much you ap­pre­ci­ate them.”
