Each year, the holiday season begins with decorating the home. From the first arrangement that greets guests to the garlands of greenery that cascade down mantels and stairwells, the décor throughout the house captures the essence of Christmas. But the greatest part of all is the time-honored tradition of trimming the tree. Trends today allow families to be more playful with color palettes and themes that let their personal style show.
Here are some of our favorite Christmas Tree Looks:
A bold color palette of red, white, and silver creates a merry ambiance. Set near the fireplace, your tree will glisten with snowflakes, pinecones, and other shiny baubles. Hang festive stockings along the mantel, and use candy-cane-hued paper with complementary solids and patterns to wrap your packages.
Visions of Sugarplums
Let bold colors and a touch of sparkle brighten up your tree. The addition of rich purples and blues to traditional red and green makes a beautiful, festive palette.
Light up the room with a tree glowing with white plus metallic shades of gold and silver. Carry the hues to the wrapped presents surrounding the base of the tree to complete the theme.
Tiny twinkling lights add sparkle to a tree filled with decorations and ribbon in lovely neutral shades. Use gift wrap in complementary urban tones, tied off with green ribbons to match the freshness of the tree.
