I am glad I warned it was going to be a busy week, because this is the first time I have been able to get on the computer all week and still don’t have much to share. We have been busy decorating client’s homes, gutting our design office for a redesign and sourcing special items for clients. Which means next week I will have a lot to share, but today I am a bit behind.
In the mean time has anyone else seen the tree on the cover of the December Martha Stewart? Amazing! See below for how to get the look:
Tricks to get the same look:
- Use different sized bulbs – C9, C6, and minis. This gives the different clusters of light.
- Wrap the major branches- go out then back down. This will help give the tree structure. After the major branches, do the smaller ones.
- Use lots of lights – think like 5,000 lights (yes that many). However covering one tree will make a great impact compared to a few strains across multiple trees. Those trees you admire in public spaces can have up to 10,000 lights on them.
- Use LEDs – they are more expensive up front, however cost lots less to run and will not pop the breaker each time you turn the lights on.
