Natural Greenery Spruces Up This West Coast Family Home

For homeowners Tara Morris and Jeff Arason, Christmas decorating isn’t about glitz and glitter — it’s greenery that has captured their holiday spirits. Keeping their festive look natural, simple and pared back is always the goal, and that’s true for their overall design style, too. Dressed for the holidays by designer Ami McKay of Pure Design Inc., the two-storey Craftsman-style home in New Westminster, 30 minutes southeast of Vancouver, is bursting with fresh greenery. Fashioning evergreen nosegays, garlands and wreaths comes naturally to Ami — she was a florist for eight years. “I love to introduce surprising festive touches,” she says.
