You can go the subtle route with a flocked tree—one that looks like it’s covered in snow—decorated with all-white ornaments (and an unexpected black bauble or two).

No matter what kind of tree is underneath, cover it in an explosion of color. You can go with standard ornaments and baubles, or just cover it with anything and everything that strikes your fancy.



You don’t have to be a grinch to appreciate a moodier Christmas scheme. Draping purple or pink tinsel around the tree and keeping the surrounding decor in an array of plum, navy, and black is a simple way to get the look.


Orlando Soria, designer and host of HGTV’s Unspouse My House, festooned his massive faux evergreen with shiny gold orbs, glittery animals, and sparkling garlands. The result: old-school elegance.

Take inspiration from a pack of highlighters for your tree’s theme. We’ll bet all your guests will want to take a photo with your show-stopping Christmas tree.


Want to stick to clean, simple lines and minimalism? Channel your Nordic energies for light wood ornaments and avoiding overcrowding.

Really Red

In a combination that is totally simple and extremely striking, a fully red tree with a smattering of string lights will make a bold statement.


An ombre tree can go in a lot of different directions. Do you want a graphic black-to-white situation or shades of blue? The effect can be the color of the tree itself or happen with the ornament placement.


Still hesitant? Start small with a tabletop version and wrap the trunk in a cozy matching sheepskin à la designer Sarah Sherman Samuel.
