Home Living : December 15th 2009
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, December 15, 2009 The light show HOMELIVING Designing ways John Eussen Homewares and design specialist Christmas is well and truly upon us and the kids are already dragging out the lights from last year, insisting they be put up before the neighbours do theirs. The pain of testing lights and replacing light bulbs that never work a second time happens year after year. Do yourself a favour this year, spend a little extra on LED lights and you won't have the problem of one light goingand the rest following. The great thingabout LED is thatifone light blows it doesn't stop the others from working. This will end up being more cost-effective and eliminate throwing out lights each year. And with the latest LED most lengths can be joined so you need fewer outlets. Don't use broken ladders or try to place lights near overhead wires. If you insist on usinggutteringassupport use appropriate clips. Make sure the ladder extends and is steady. You don't want to spend Christmasinhospital. So spend the extra dollar and, as they say, less is more. Treat the decorating outside as you would inside. Be creative and, if you have a coastal cottage, use a beach theme. If it is heritage, go traditional. Think about colour, balance and theme and you'll surely win the street award this year. For genuine bargains and that extra string of lights that will make all the difference, don't underestimate last- minute shoppingas most Christmas accessories are marked down two to three days before the big day. Have a safe and happy Christmas. eusson.com.au 2073461i hln wk25 M.I.
