3 Stylish Christmas Tree Decoration Ideas


Unique ornaments and decorations to make your holiday centrepiece the talk of Christmas.

Frosted

If your home’s interior style is all Scandi-inspired raw wood and neutral tones, this snow-dusted fir-style tree strikes the perfect balance of simplicity and celebration. Transparent or semi-opaque decorations keep lines clean, while pearls, matte glitter and burnished-gold detailing add depth and texture.

Frosted Christmas Wreath

• Set aside a few decorations and use floristry wire to personalise your front-door wreath.
• Create cohesion with an accent colour from your decorations placed purposefully around the room – rose gold is on-trend and won’t compete with a neutral backdrop.

A lush, green tree bedazzled with red and gold is as quintessentially Christmas as Bing Crosby. But don’t stop there – deck your halls (and walls, mantel and entryway) with the festive colour scheme too. Play up the holiday cheer with a callback to childhood favourites: nods to the Nutcracker, snow globes in varying sizes and a rustic wreath topped with bright red berries.
