The most exciting part of the season is pulling out the Christmas decorations and bringing the holiday spirit into your home. We all have sentimental pieces that we bring out year after year, but it can be fun to mix things up and try something new every now and then. As you decorate your tree this year, consider the following ideas:

1. Modern Metallics

Incorporating metallics into your Christmas tree is a great way to make a big statement. The shiny material will reflect your string lights to create a magical ambiance right in your living room. Metallic ornaments, tinsel, and tree toppers will add just the right amount of sparkle to any color scheme. 

Tip: Use metallic materials when wrapping your gifts for the ultimate picture-perfect look.

2. Neutrals and Naturals

Use a neutral color palette and natural elements throughout your tree to create something simple yet beautiful. If you're stuck for ideas, look to nature for inspiration. Decorate your tree with pinecones, wooden ornaments, or even fresh florals. Even if the rest of your home is filled with color, you can add contrast with your tree décor.

3. Whimsical White

Looking for an alternative to the traditional green Christmas tree? Instead, try a white tree. This is the ideal blank canvas for creating a one-of-a-kind Christmas look. Brighten up your living space by decorating your snow-covered pine with colorful décor. Your white tree will look great no matter what colors or themes you choose.
