white christmas trees

16th December 2013

I love Christmas trees. Going and picking the perfect one out from a tree farm, the yummy smell, and the warm glow once it’s all decorated. I have, however, started to develop a little soft spot for white trees. Obviously they aren’t the real deal, but I like their light and bright look.

These ones that stick to a metallic colour scheme are gorgeous.

And mixing in one colour with the metallics is a nice look too. I’m pretty smitten with this gold + aqua combo.White-Christmas-Tree-7

And then for a bit of a retro, kitschy look, go for a a rainbow of colours. Against the white background of the tree, they really stick out as being bright and cheery. white-christmas-tree-colourful-5a

So fun, right? How do you feel about white Christmas trees? Would you ever get one? I would stick to a real tree for our living room (you just can’t beat a real tree), and then a white one elsewhere in the house. So fun!

    I’m usually a tree traditionalist but those white trees are soooo pretty!

    I have fallen completely in love with white trees over the past three years. I almost love them more than green ones!

    I have to agree there is just something about white trees. That first photo with the gold ornaments is so beautiful! I also have the French cottage photo pinned to my Christmas board too!
