Make the most of what you have. Remember how your parents tried to find the biggest and fullest Christmas tree and they brought it home and squeezed it through the door, barely managing to make it stand straight? Well you don’t need a huge Christmas tree to invite the holiday spirit into your home.{found on styleathome}.

The tree should fit the room. So if the room has a low ceiling and there’s not a lot of space to spare, a small Christmas tree would look cute and perfect. You can decorate it with large ornaments to play with proportions.

We can all learn a thing or two from Scandinavian interior design. Those elements can be adapted when decorating the Christmas tree. First of all, simplicity is key. Forget about all the sparkly colors and ornaments and try to incorporate white and natural materials.{found on femina}.

Play with textures as well and adapt the ornaments and the design to the room the tree is in. a bedroom, for example, needs a christmas tree that looks appealing through its simplicity and warmth but without using bold colors.

Instead of a green Christmas tree, you can try something different altogether. A white tree would surely look interesting. Decorate the tree with white and silver ornaments. You can display presents wrapped in colored paper underneath the tree and they can be the focal point.{found on craftberrybush}.

If the room’s décor is minimalist and monochrome featuring white as the main hue, then it would be interesting for the Christmas tree to feature a bold color such as red. It would really pop and since red is such a powerful color, there’s no need for ornaments.

Or what about blue as the main color for the Christmas tree? It pairs well with green and if it’s also the accent color for the room’s décor then you’ll have a cohesive design throughout.{found on lonny}.

One way to make a traditional Christmas tree stand out is by wrapping colored ribbon around it. Pick a color that isn’t necessarily Christmas-related such as pink, blue or purple.{found on lonny}.
