Best Christmas trees
Scandi-style Christmas tree
Featuring gorgeous minimalist paper decorations, earth-toned ribbon and dainty wooden decorations, this Scandi-inspired Christmas tree by Shanie, @housenumber10, is beautifully festive yet cool and relaxed.
To recreate the look in your own home, take cues from Shanie and opt for a wicker Christmas tree skirt to hide any messy wires at the base of your tree. Stick to ornaments that boast neutral textures and fresh white detailing, before completing the look with some silver glittery floristry picks and a some rustic jute ribbons!
Red and silver Christmas tree
Sometimes you just can't beat a classic look, and if, for you, Christmas is all about tradition, then you're guaranteed to love Meg's incredible red, silver and gold Christmas tree as much as we do. Meg has used red feature baubles alongside sparkly silver ornaments to create a vintage-inspired look, and if you look closely, you'll notice that she's also added in a few purple accents to bring out the classic reds. If you decide to recreate the look at home, don't forget to include some cool white lights - you could even add some Christmas window lights for added festive cheer!
Green and gold Christmas tree
We absolutely adore the gorgeous green and gold baubles on Steph's classy Christmas tree, but we think the thing we love the most is the way she's styled the surrounding area. By adding a garland and some twinkling lights to her mantelpiece, Steph has transformed the corner of her living room into something truly magical. We also love the addition of the wooden sleigh - it's rustic and charming, not to mention perfect for displaying Christmas gifts!
Ombre Christmas tree
There's one word to describe Kirsty's ombre tree - wow! By arranging baubles, florals, dried grasses and pinecones in groups of red, cream, pink and neutral, Kirsty has created a contemporary yet timeless looking tree that is nothing short of show-stopping. If you decide to recreate the look but you're working on a tight budget, why not use chalk paint or spray paint to upcycle some of the ornaments you already own? You could even take it one step further and create customised shades by making your own chalk paint - it's much easier than you think, and your tree will look like nobody elses!
White and silver tree
When it's done right, one of our all-time favourite Christmas decor schemes is winter wonderland, so there's no surprise we fell in love as soon as we saw Charlotte's gorgeous white and silver tree. The glittery white baubles are understated enough to look sophisticated but festive, and we love how she's styled them next to pared-down foliage over the fireplace. If you wanted to recreate the look at home but don't have a fireplace, you could always hang a Christmas wreath instead of a garland!
Vintage-inspired Christmas tree
We love Sarah's tree because it has such an elegant, period feel to it - it's the perfect style to recreate if you're living in a listed home, or a Georgian, Edwardian, Victorian or even Art Deco property. As you can see, this sort of champagne gold colour scheme looks particularly striking against dark decor, but it would also look beautiful in somewhere like a white bedroom. If you decide to emulate Sarah's immaculate styling, don't forget to add brown paper packages tied up with string - a carefully placed faux fur rug will also add to the sense of cosiness!
