Placing a lovely wreath adorned with large ornaments on your mantel creates a striking statement of joy and splendor.

Christmas Tree Decorating Trends: How to Choose a Color Scheme for the Holidays

Decorating for the holidays can be a challenge because of the myriad of options available. But it doesn’t always have to be the case when you organize your ideas based on a color palette. In this post, Tree Classics gives you seven smart tips on how to come up with the perfect color scheme for your Christmas tree.

1. Use Your Favorite Colors

Color choices are highly subjective, and when it comes to decorating your Christmas tree, you need to do what feels right for you. That said, don’t be intimidated by using ornaments in an unconventional palette. Whatever your favorite colors are, they can be the perfect choice for your tree.

Look for a pairing that works. Even the most unusual combinations can yield great results – like this violet and brown color scheme on a white tree.

2. Complement the Existing Colors in your House

A good rule of thumb in decorating a tree is to choose colors that match or contrast nicely with your décor. Focus on what you have in your home and select complementary colors that bring out the seasonal feeling.

If your walls are neutral, your space can work with a lot of different colors. In fact, decorations would be a good way to add visual interest and contrast. Opt for gold, silver, and bronze if you already have a busy room décor. These metallic tones will stand out without conflicting with all the other colors and patterns.

 

3. Check out Interior Design Magazines

Holiday magazines both printed and online offer a lot of ideas and inspiration for home design projects. Browse through the different Christmas tree features from professional designers and choose which one matches your personality and home style.

4. Select a Color according to a Holiday Theme

Choosing a color scheme is a lot easier when you have a holiday theme, as this already presents a harmonious palette. For instance, a winter wonderland décor brings to mind white and silver with a hint of blue and purple with the use of clear lights. Vintage Christmas calls for saturated hues. Reverse Christmas celebrates fun summer colors.

 

5. Stick to Classic Christmas Colors: Red and Green

Stay true to tradition by choosing the red and green color scheme. Nothing can be more Christmassy than combining poinsettias and bows in shades of red with emerald green baubles on a pine tree. If you want to spice it up, try adding white, silver, or gold to the mix.

6. Let your Christmas Ornaments Inspire You

Select Christmas ornaments on which you can base your color scheme. If you have a special holiday decoration from your childhood home, you can make this as your focal point and draw your Christmas colors from its design. Remember, your inspiration can be anything from a favorite tree topper or a pretty ribbon.

 

7. Go for a Festive Rainbow Theme

Still haven’t narrowed down your color choices? Why not use a rainbow theme! Aside from providing a vibrant, festive atmosphere, this scheme allows you to combine the different ornaments you’ve collected from Christmas seasons past. Layer colors for a chromatic Christmas display and bring the hues into your room décor to create a unified look.

More than achieving a visually pleasing décor, your holiday tree should be an expression of how you and your family feel about Christmas. In the end, the perfect color scheme is the one that warms your heart. Have fun decorating!

Different Types of Christmas Trees: Full, Narrow, Slim and Flatback Trees

Tree Classics features four of the most common Christmas tree shapes to help you in choosing an artificial Christmas tree that is right for you!

Artificial Christmas trees today take on a variety of shapes or profiles in order to meet the needs of every household. With these beautifully crafted trees, different homes – no matter how big or small the space, no matter the style – are imparted with the spirit of Christmas through the heartwarming presence of these evergreens.

The Full Tree

Full trees are the most popular of all because they resemble real Christmas trees pretty closely. Featuring lush foliage and a broad profile, full trees are perfect for cheering up the mood in your home with their regal charm and abundance.

 

How to Decorate a Full Christmas Tree

The commanding presence of a full Christmas tree invites you to give it an adorable embellishment, simply because it is something that the whole family will enjoy looking at throughout the holidays. Full trees can be decorated with almost anything – from tinsel garlands and shiny baubles to ribbons and knitted stocking ornaments. Different combinations and placements of holiday trimmings give the tree a unique appeal.

The Narrow Tree

Narrow Christmas trees are perfect for spreading holiday warmth and cheer in smaller homes and apartments. These fairly traditional full-height yet slender trees also work well as a secondary holiday centerpiece that you can have in your dining room, kitchen, or guest room.

 

How to Decorate a Narrow Christmas Tree

Lending an air of elegance, narrow Christmas trees look even sleeker when decorated with restraint. To add visual interest without being overpowering, combine baubles, icicles, and trimmings in a monochromatic color scheme.

On the other hand, if you want your tree to appear fuller, consider featuring different textures that create volume and depth. Large baubles and bows, mixed with pinecones and poinsettias, can give a sense of breadth and create the feeling of abundance as a full tree would.

The Slim Tree

For homes that have minimal space, beautiful and verdant slim trees are the ideal way to usher in the holiday season. With lean silhouettes, these trees can fit in even in the tightest spaces, giving your entryways, foyers, and corners an instant dose of Christmas cheer.

How to Decorate a Slim Christmas Tree

The old adage ‘less is more’ is a good rule to follow when it comes to slim Christmas trees. Skinny trees command attention due to their delicate profile, and it’s best to showcase this feature by keeping the ornaments minimal.

Skinny trees give the illusion of height, which is why they work well in small rooms. Emphasize this admirable attribute by using ribbons that cascade from the top to bottom. Hang the smaller ornaments on the upper part of the tree and the bigger ones at the lower section to create a sense of balance.

The Flatback Tree

Flatback trees radiate the holiday ambiance of a traditional Christmas tree but takes up only half the floor space. Great for studios and small apartments, these trees feature a space-saving design that allows them to rest comfortably against the wall while providing a lush full-tree effect from the front.

 

How to Decorate a Flatback or Half Christmas Tree

Because a flatback tree poses as a full-bodied tree, it is spruced up much like a lush evergreen, except that you get to skip the back corner. Depending on your room’s décor, you can choose a festive red-and-green theme or go beyond the traditional Christmas colors.

A neutral scheme using natural elements, such as pinecones and other woodsy ornaments, is a great way to infuse a feeling of coziness and warmth in your holiday celebrations. Add a joyful spirit by placing neatly wrapped presents under the tree.

With the wide selection available on the market, choosing an artificial Christmas tree can be difficult. We hope this Tree Classics feature has helped you in buying a Christmas tree that’s perfect for your holiday home.
