Hey, friends! How’s it going? A big welcome to those of you stopping by from Heather’s at Setting for Four!
I’m excited to be joining the 3rd annual My Home Style Blog Hop: Christmas Tree Edition, hosted by my friend Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living! I’m teaming up with a ton of super talented bloggers to share how our Christmas trees reflect our home’s style. I’ve shared my Christmas living room with you last week but today we’re taking an up close look at the tree.
Like I mentioned in my living room tour, I am really gravitating toward simple decor this year. I don’t know if it’s because of the madness of the move but right now I am just digging stress free, minimal decor. I even carried that over into the actual tree. I opted for faux this year because, well, it’s stress free. We have a faux one already but it is way too huge for the small apartment living room that we are currently working with.
If I’m being completely honest, this is the second or third place I’ve moved the tree to since I put it up a few weeks ago. In my defense, I’m still getting used to this apartment’s layout. Plus I like to change things up quite often and am always tweaking decor and furniture placement.
I found this beauty on Wayfair and I am in love with it! It’s sparse, which is the look I was going for, but it’s not too sparse to where it looks like I got ripped off, lol. I would say that the style of my tree is Cozy, Neutral, Scandi-inspired.
I was browsing Pinterest for Scandinavian-inspired Christmas decor and I kept seeing a theme of sparse looking trees with candles adorning the branches. I fell in love instantly!
A lot of the trees were in a basket of some kind, which I thought was really pretty and interesting. The base looked a little bare so I decided to warm it up with a faux fur rug. I love the cozy texture it adds!
The gold bells add a little needed bling.
Originally I had planned to stop here but after living with it for a few days I felt like the tree still needed something.
I added this pretty wood bead garland from the Hearth & Hand line at Target. I like that it’s neutral while adding another element of texture. It could probably use another strand but unfortunately they are all sold out, so I’m working with what I’ve got.
What do you think of my Cozy, Neutral, Scandi-inspired tree? Do you like minimal, neutral decor or do you go for the classic Christmas colors?
