With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to think about
decking the halls with boughs of holly. Or more likely setting up a
Christmas tree in your spacious Metricon open-plan living area. If you haven’t chosen your tree yet, don’t panic — there’s still plenty of time. But which type of tree to choose? The quick answer: it all depends on the look of your home.
Opt for a plump green pine tree in a nod to European tradition. You
can’t go wrong with this timeless classic. Decorations of all colours
look fabulous against its green backdrop – the choices are endless.
There are plenty of pine trees readily available including the real-deal
(sold by many community groups on the side of the road these days) or a
low-maintenance artificial substitute depending on how often you (or
Santa’s helper) want to vacuum and whether the delicious smell of fresh
pine is synonymous with Christmas.
