I’m so excited about today’s post because it’s allllll about Christmas Trees! I feel like I am now completely in Christmas mode now that we officially have one tree up and fully decorated! A few weeks ago I revealed our big master bedroom renovation project that includes our custom built-ins and fireplace. I couldn’t wait to get a Christmas tree up here this year to make it feel extra cozy! I wanted my Christmas tree to match the style of this room, so I went with a Rustic Modern Christmas Tree filled with black and gold ornaments with rustic touches.
Today’s post is also even more exciting because I’m partnering with several other bloggers who are all sharing their own personal style and incorporating it into a Christmas Tree design! If you are visiting from Persia Lou , welcome! Head to the bottom of the post to see the full list.
Rustic Modern Christmas Tree
Here is a glimpse into our bedroom all decorated for Christmas! Well, at least this corner is. I love how the tree blends so nicely with the builtins and the stacked logs.
My Christmas Style
When I get asked what my personal style is, I automatically say “Rustic Modern”. Over the years as my style has evolved I have come to realize that this describes my style so well. In every design I do, I always mix black, white and natural tones with clean modern lines, and a little bit of chic. To me, it’s all about finding the balance of classic and modern and a variety of textures. And this exactly how I chose to decorate this space in our bedroom!
Black and Gold Christmas Tree
Decorating Christmas trees is something I love to do each year and for the past few years I’ve actually put 2-3 up around our house! I consider them a challenge, I feel like it’s one element of design that I am still working on, learning about and growing into. After all, I only get to practice it once a year :)
This tree is all about adding layers and a variety to different elements to create a full yet chic tree. The tree itself had a subtle flocking to it which helped add texture from the start. The next two elements I added were faux fur garland and white flocked branches for more texture. Next up, ornaments! I used a mixture of black matte and black glossy balls, along with gold and cream knit yarns balls. I also incorporated a few gold modern stars and vintage pieces. I ended the tree by draping black satin ribbon cascading down.
Adding Rustic Elements
Those rustic elements are what really bring this look together. The neutral tartan blanket, antlers and fur basket filled with birch wood are all you need.
Sitting on this couch at night watching TV and watching those lights sparkle is one of the highlights of this season! Every little things really feels so magical with the lights twinkling.
Blanket Tree Skirt
For the tree skirt I actually used a throw blankets to drop around the bottom of the tree. Proof that you don’t need a fancy stand or the perfect circle skirt, just use something you have around the house :)
