Anne trims the tree with mirrored garlands and ornaments that play off the contemporary cool of the living area's graphic fabrics. She attaches balls to an oversize boxwood wreath and places shimmering reindeer—the kids glued glitter onto forms—on the coffee table. The striking color scheme reflects Anne's fearless sensibilities. "I'm a color person," she says, "but for anyone who's afraid of bold hues, try bright accessories such as lamps or pillows first."
