Christmas around the corner
WE’VE A little while to go before the big day in December, but for many of us, the idea of decorating for Christmas has been exciting since we took the tree down last year.
While much of the world curls up with blankets by the fire, the Aussie Christmas is unique in that we’re able to stuff our faces with prawns before waiting out our food comas on the beach. While we love the traditions involved in our beach cricket games after a feast, at home, there’s no denying the special feeling involved in decorating with traditional elements.
The thought of Christmas in the home evokes memories in more ways than one.
Think images of Christmas decorations like a beautifully decorated tree, a fruitful wreath, and Christmas crackers on the table. We also think of smells like cinnamon and pine, and the unmistakable sound of Michael Bublé’s greatest hits.
“The key to successful Christmas decorating is creating an atmosphere in your home,” says Mia Lake, interior design director at Vic Lake Architects. Katie Skelly realestate.com.au
Christmas is about so much more than decorations.
