As the temperature drops and the holiday spirit fills the air, we welcome the Christmas season in many distinct ways. From buying the best gifts to cooking the perfect cookie and watching Hallmark movies, or filling stockings on the mantel and decking out our front porch, every space and everyone can profit from the full merry treatment. No matter what your tradition, there’s nothing like cheerful holiday decor to really get you into the mood. And, for most of us that starts with decorating the Christmas tree.
Whatever your holiday style is there are plenty of ways to bring your tree to life and craft a look your family will love. You don’t need to go overboard this year when decorating. There are so many different ways you can transform your tree. A simple color combination such as red and green can do the trick and come out looking stunning. Just take a look at this Houston home for holiday trimming inspiration to help you figure out what you can do with your own décor.
The Christmas tree is nestled into the curvature of the staircase making it the focal point once someone enters this home. This traditional tree is beautifully decked out in red, green and white. Striking glass and jeweled ornaments, in different sizes, are tucked in the tree to create depth.
Placed in the tree are Mark Roberts fairies which invite the onlooker to come closer and admire the details. The gorgeous red ribbon flows vertically on the tree adding texture and the illusion of height.
Magnificent sprigs of berries top the tree resulting in a sensational effect.
The tree skirt really brings this Christmas theme together. It is a vivid red with beautiful red jewels. Once placed, the red hues in the tree really pop.
Sometimes the most noticeable part of the home is overlooked when decorating, take the banister for example. We and our guests see them every other day but rarely pay attention to them. A grand staircase is the main event in this expansive foyer and immediately greets visitors. Seasonal greens trace the curled banister and cascade around the newel post, which is topped with berries as well as decorative green and red glass balls. The glass balls pop against this pine garland and are complemented by the red-and-green plaid ribbon. The lavish red ribbon from the tree is echoed in the banister garland tying the two together.
I am curious what you are doing with your own tree this year. Leave me a comment and let me know what colors you have chosen for your own holiday décor. Also, if you have a banister do you decorate it for the holiday season?
