Good Questions: Creative Christmas Light Tips?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I love the look and sparkle of christmas lights and I have managed to find strings in several interesting non-holiday colors.

My question is this.....how do I use them around my house in a sophisticated way (if that's possible)? I need help coming up with something creative but I don't want to end up with a living room that looks like a dorm room.

Thanks! Meredith

Dear Meredith,

We find that when you hang xmas lights out in plain sight and in decorative curve and shapes, they smack of xmas. However, if you use them as a light source and either hide them along door frames, at the wall/ceiling line, or just inside of a closet they cast a lovely light and don't smack of reindeer at all.

Anyone else?
