I watched Netflix’s Holiday Home Makeover with Mr Christmas to do one of my favourite things this time of year; feast my eyes on other people’s Christmas decorations.
Starring Benjamin Bradley (Mr Christmas), and the decorated premises of four families, watching the four-episodes will likely show you a few new tips and tricks for decorating your home during the holiday season. However, when it comes to the final results, decoration-wise, I found myself less wowed than I expected to be.
In fairness, there’s no doubt that Christmas decor tastes can be very personal. Nevertheless, for me, I enjoyed the first and last episodes most because of the decor and the personalities involved. It’s during these episodes that the show about a decor expert helping four families decorate their homes came close to being the best it could have been. For the two middle episodes, I, unfortunately, could not stop the urge to fast forward to the finished decor instead of sitting the stories and steps it took to get there.
Perhaps season 2, assuming it’s coming will have a bigger production budget, more engaging stories and a touch more elaborate and awe-inspiring decor.
In the meantime, should you find yourself super curious, give Holiday Home Makeover with Mr Christmas a chance. At the very least, you’ll learn a few DIY decorating tips.
