Seasonal Style Guide: Trimming Your Tree & Decking the Halls

Thanksgiving has come and gone and that means it’s officially time to put up your Christmas tree (or trees because one isn’t enough)! What’s trendy this year in holiday decor? Read on to see three style ideas for trimming the tree and decking the halls:









The Upside Down Tree   I’m still on the fence about this one. A few years ago I had the pleasure of staying at The Liberty Hotel in Boston during the Christmas season. The lobby took my breath away with the display of upside down trees suspended from the ceiling. While it fit the boutique vibe of the hotel, I’m still not convinced this is a great look for your home. If you want to give this hot new trend a whirl, it is best done in a large space such as the family room or grand entryway. Love the whimsical look? You can get your very own upside down tree from Target.

White Christmas   Super saturated colorways have been all the rage this year. From shimmery millennial pink in the spring to rich wine purple in the fall, we’ve had color overload. So it’s no wonder people are ditching color altogether and going for super chic white on white decor. Check out the White House’s stunning display from white branches in white vases lining one of the hallways to a room full of flocked trees with twinkling white lights. It’s like stepping into Narnia. You can create your own winter wonderland by starting with this flocked tree from Wayfair and adding on some white ornaments from JC Penney. Welcome guests with a white and silver wreath and line your fireplace or stair banister with icy berry garland  to complete the look.

Be Basic   With the chaos of the holidays, it’s nice to have a calm place to relax after a long day. Going overboard with holiday decorations is fun, but you can be just as festive with basic decor and create a serene spot at the same time. Farmhouse Chic is popular and it translates beautifully into Christmas decorations. A mantle decorated with burlap stockings, live leaf garland, and a rustic star wreath creates a wonderfully simple, yet stunning holiday display. Understated doesn’t have to be boring and can help to counteract the chaos that comes with the holidays.
