In light of Christmas, we put together our own remix on the classic holiday poem, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. This is a must-read for those who love decorating!
‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (DecoratorsBest remix)
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In beautiful patterns and textures, like mohair.
The guests were nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of metallic wallpaper danced in their heads.
Mama in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
had just settled down in our canopy bed at last.
When down in the den there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
Down, down the stairs I flew like a flash,
Pausing to admire the greenery, tied with pink sash.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but
Alessandra Branca, bedecked in her signature red & black gear!
And then, in a twinkling, I heard in the den,
The sound of Alessandra directing skilled workmen.
She spoke not a word, but went straight to her work,
And covered the room with bright patterns, adding much-needed perk.
Before I knew it,
She had transformed the space anew.
And she said as she left,
“Merry Christmas! Enjoy the new room!”
