3 Design Options for your Christmas Tree

Posted by Treetopia in Artificial Christmas Trees

The Christmas tree is the centerpiece of your holiday home, but deciding how to decorate it can be a challenge. Be inspired by these design ideas and give your Christmas tree the stylish and festive look you’ve always wanted.

1. Traditional Look

When it comes to Christmas tree decorating, traditional red-and-green is a classic look that will never go out of style. For a great back-to-basics look, start with a lush green Christmas tree with a full silhouette, such as the Treetopia Alexander Fir Christmas Tree. This tree is available pre-lit with clear lights, which spares you the trouble of having to install your own lights.

Decorate it with an eclectic mix of ornaments using a predominantly red-and-white color palette. Make sure to choose glass ball ornaments in solid colors, and use iconic holiday décor staples like Santa, candy canes, snowflakes, and stockings. Sprigs of winterberries, clip-on poinsettias, and red-and-gold ribbons add texture to your tree, making it look warmer and more inviting.

For a bit of sparkle, add silver and gold accents in the form of shiny figurines, trinkets, or nostalgic silver sleigh bells. Antique or heirloom ornaments look fantastic on a traditional tree, so start rummaging through your attic or storage closet for treasured pieces.

2. Modern Look

Decorating options are almost limitless if you want to give your tree a fresh, modern look. And nothing gives you more room for creativity than a pure white Christmas tree, such as the Treetopia Winter White Christmas Tree.

Metallic décor looks incredible against a white tree as it lends a sleek, stylish look to your contemporary home. Combine a variety of shining gold, silver, and platinum ornaments to create a grand vision of luxury. For a subtle yet equally glamorous metallic scheme, keep your design simple and select ornaments of complementary colors in shiny or lustrous finishes, such as these turquoise and bronze accents.

A monochromatic Christmas tree lets you indulge your passion for your favorite color.  Taking your cue from the predominant color of your home décor will give your space a seamless, harmonious look. Whether you love purple, pink, or green, simply focus on your chosen color and select ornaments in varying tones, textures, and sizes.

3. Thematic Look

A personalized decorating theme allows you to be as playful as you want to be. Simply take your favorite interest, hobby, sport, movie, or toy, and run with it. Traditional themes include a white winter wonderland, pretty angels, and shimmering stars.

Foodies may enjoy decorating with candy canes, popcorn garlands, baskets of chocolates, or perhaps, vintage silverware. Other unique themes make use of stuffed animals, fruits, and even the works of science fiction author, Jules Verne.

Choose the design option that best suits your personality, and you’ll see how much more fun and enjoyable decorating your Christmas tree can be.
