Holiday decorating need not be over the top
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.”
