CHRISTMAS tree exhibitor Arthur Muller’s love for the festive season is evident in his home.

The SARS employee has opened his home every year for the past 15 years during the festive season to show his Christmas tree decorating prowess. This year is no different and Muller is donating the proceeds of the R15 entry fee to animal organisation Save-A-Pet.

Muller says his favourite room is his lounge which attracts visitors from all over Nelson Mandela Bay in the run-up to the big day.

“Our favourite room in our home this time of the year is our lounge-dining room. When you walk into our front door, you are greeted by a Christmas theme.

“There are seven stylish decorated Christmas trees [themed] from Chanel, Victorian, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, winter wonderland, Christmas cloud, copper ivy and pearls, berries as well as three garlands to greet you,” Muller said.

My style in five words: Modern classical style and to be comfortable is always a winner for me.

On my wish- list: Happiness, health and prosperity for all.

Best colour: Cream, it blends very easy with other colours.

Pet decor peeve: Brass ornaments, plastic flowers on display and wallpaper.

My indulgence: Christmas trees over the festive session.

Favourite character (either fictional or historic): Queen Elizabeth 2 and Nelson Mandela.
