It can be a cozy corner in the fireplace, decorated pillows on the sofa, a table set with candles for dinner and also the famous flasher in different colors ”, suggests Renata Assarito.

Do it yourself

In addition, for those who like to bet on colors, maybe it's time to dare a little. Green and red are the reference colors for Christmas, so maybe this year it’s cool to bet on rose gold, for example ", suggests architect Camila Marinho.
