Anne Thull Quoted in the December Issue of Nob Hill Gazette

Anne Thull is quoted in the December issue of the Nob Hill Gazette?s holiday decorating article titled? ?Designers, Hosts, Share Decking Do?s? by Erika Mailman.

Excerpt from the article:

?Due to the continued upheaval of our economic downturn, I believe everyone craves peace and tranquility in their lives,? says Anne Thull of Anne Thull Fine Art Designs. ?Most people have a natural tendency to seek out nature to rejuvenate their souls when difficulties occur. I believe this year?s decorating trends will highlight nature?s color palette, combined with personal specialty or keepsake objects. Each family will use its favorite holiday colors, but with a touch of grey, which creates a softer, soothing tone.?

Thull recommends displaying keepsake objects surrounded by candlelight or soft white miniature lights, to personalize the traditional pinecones, berries, and leaves in centerpieces, garlands, and wreaths. ?This will tell a more intimate ?story? when viewed on the mantle or dining table.?

She envisions using subdued decorations with an element of surprise this year. ?Add a hint of nature?s bright colors, such as straw yellow, orange berries, and bright green leaves.? Small touches make for exceptional decorations, creating a festive yet warm and inviting feeling in your home.
