When you think of Christmas, I’m sure you must think of red and green. I certainly do! But don’t let the idea of using different colors scare you off. Be adventurous, take your favorite color, and turn it into your Christmas theme this year. Everywhere I look Florence is filled with shades of purples and burgandy. The first and most important reason, which I’m sure any Italian and more specifically, any Florentine, would tell you, is because of their football (soccer) team, Fiorentina. People literally bleed purple over here and I am not exaggerating. I mean you can even see police on duty running down the streets in a panic into open bars and cafes that are playing the match on game day when screams and cheering are heard. Ok, well I won’t get carried away, back to my point. Bordeaux shades of deep reds and purples are everywhere you look in Tuscany from the wine, to sports, to Italian Leather. It’s a color that fits this area well and brings a certain type of richness to everything. So why not bring that richness to your home this year. Try something different and have a real Tuscan Christmas. Hanging grapes from your tree, although I don’t reccommend real ones, and wine ornaments will have all your friends talking. Get reinspired this Christmas and decorate however and with whatever you see fit.
