Take a Bough

Maximalist, minimalist, demure or dazzling, one of these trees will top your best-dressed list. 

 

Classic

For the purist, this natural beauty is adorned simply to keep the festive focus on the lush evergreen form. A bevy of red balls brings to mind berries on holly and employs the most traditional holiday palette – red and green – in unapologetic homage to Christmases past. The ornaments’ matte finish keeps the look natural, and their varied sizes add interest. The dark wall is a demure backdrop; its tone matched by the deep green tree. The blue container echoes the wall, and – like the identically wrapped gifts – is accented with red ribbon.

 

Modern

A pale Scandinavian-inspired palette and modern style inspired the choice of this sparse white twig tree. Neutral tones and simplicity of form dominate in this scene; so the small minimalist tree adorned with a few choice silver and gold ornaments and a star cushion are enough to give the place an air of serene celebration.

 

Luminous

Already aglow, this flocked look-at-me tree is high- lighted further by its primo placement under an arc of twinkly lights that accentuates the room’s exquisite architectural arch. The wall-mounted star is impactful, and it’s a motif that’s repeated at the base of the tree and on the mantel. More twinkly lights are woven among presents wrapped in the room’s palette of silver-grey and shades of blue for added glow. (Tip: Opt for battery-operated candles for safety.)

 

Romantic

Embrace your inner maximalist with a romantically decked tree that would make the Whos down in Whoville beam with joy. Frothy and feminine embellishments in a plethora of shapes and sizes are layered onto this generously decorated tree, but all in shades of blue, snow white and silver to achieve a harmonious whole. How to trim a maximalist tree? Place balls along the length of the branches, from near the trunk to the tips, to create voluptuous volume. Then stand aside and get ready to be wowed – there’s no better time of the year to go big!

 

Artful

Slender, sculptural and decorated with discreet ornaments, this fir tree doesn’t overwhelm the room and blends perfectly with its contemporary urban look. Black snowflake ornaments and tiny LED lights whisper “festive,” as does the sunburst “star” on the table. An orderly collection of elegantly wrapped gifts are tied tightly to the room’s grey palette, but otherwise, the holiday decor is minimized to match the room’s everyday curated appeal.

 

Wild

There’s a bit of a wild child aesthetic at the heart of this tree that looks as at home in this snow-white space as it would in the woods. Placed
in a high pot to elevate it, the tree helps to draw attention to the room’s towering ceiling. Instead of playing it safe with white decorations to match the room, coloured ornaments pop for a spirited holiday vibe.
