1) Decorate your Christmas tree with classic metallics: Create a snowy tree with traditional bright metallic hues of gold and silver for a classic and elegant look. Cover your tree in sparkly gold ornaments and shimmery silver balls along with a gold beaded garland to create a glamorous centrepiece. Illuminate it with fluorescent LED lights to add a warm, cheery glow to your space and top it off with a large golden bow in sheer metallic and drape the strands of the ribbon down the length of the tree.

2) Update your tree with a bold lavender colour scheme: Red and green don’t always have to take centre stage in your home come the holiday season. This year, try a rich lavender shade for a fun pop of colour to contrast the frosty white branches of your tree. Choose ornaments in different sizes and shades for a monochromatic look. The saturated lavender hues make a sultry statement for an ultra-feminine and modern flair.

3) Try knitted décor for a cozy touch: Who says knits are only to be worn? Now your favourite fashion staple can also double as a festive décor by incorporating a bit of knit into your design scheme. Wrap ball ornaments in a dove grey and sandy brown yarn to bring some rustic charm to your tree. Recycle those ugly Christmas sweaters and turn them into mini mittens and stocking ornaments with a thread and needle. Cut up your grandma’s old white crocheted coasters into the shape of a snowflake for a winter theme. These quirky knitted décor will bring a hint of coziness to your holidays.

4)  Adorn your tree with a photo garland: The holiday season is the perfect time to look back at the wonderful year you’ve had and what better way to celebrate the holidays than with a photo garland commemorating your favourite moments from throughout the year. Print out black and white snaps from those special occasions like your birthday party or those proud milestones you’ve achieved, like graduating university or landing a new job, to make your tree more personalized and unique. Wrap your tree in Christmas lights and hang the pictures on the cable with wooden clothespins. This simple décor idea will bring merriness to your home.
