Find out how Pin­ter­est queen Zoe Pear­son decks the halls

Christ­mas at UK Pin­ter­est Lead Zoe Pear­son’s Lon­don home is a colour­ful a air. With teal tas­sel gar­lands, giant pa­per hon­ey­comb balls and a sparkly white tree dec­o­rated with robots, lla­mas and fish ga­lore, the flat she shares with hus­band Neil – “a risk man­ager by day and an ul­tra-marathoner by night” – is like all your favourite pins in one place.
