A former client, Regina Gust, is a “seasonal” interior designer. She is flown all over the country to decorate people’s homes for the holidays. (I can’t disclose how much she gets paid to do so, just know it might make you a little queasy.)
I have her blogging her arrangements and tips on tumblr so you can grab her concepts to use in your own home. Knowing Regina she’d love to bust into your house and help you, but as you can see, she’s a busy girl.
A few tips I’ve picked up thus far:
You don’t need a pop of color if you don’t want one. Let the green pine shine through.
A blue tint amongst warm colors is refreshing.
If you opt for a traditional palette, use lime green accents to give your arrangements some life.
Purple should not be discounted. It’s just as festive as red! (I’m glad a professional agrees with me on that one.)
Black and white combos were very trendy at the holiday market this year. I look forward to seeing how that plays out.
