Black is the New Festive: Black Christmas Trees Steal the Spotlight

It is that time of the year when you dust off those old boxes filled with decorations, head into the attic to pull out all your string light fixtures and do everything you can to stay ahead of the decorating curve. It might seem hectic at times. It could feel even crazy as you head out to shop for friends and family. Yet, we love the Holiday season and all the joy that it brings.

Finding Beauty in Black

As we alluded to earlier, black is not color that many think of instantly when it comes to gorgeous Christmas decorations. But it is not a color to be ignored anymore and the black Christmas tree is a hot trend that initially gained momentum last year. Adding a black Christmas tree to a home with neutral backdrop or one with while walls makes plenty of aesthetic sense. The tree not only makes a bigger visual impact here, but you can add glitter to it with gold decorations that fit in perfectly. The black Christmas tree also fits in with a variety of styles ranging from minimal and contemporary to Scandinavian, rustic or even Victorian.

Decorating your Black Christmas Tree

You might want to call it the ‘goth tree’, but there is no denying that the black Christmas tree is a popular choice and is only second to green when it comes to consumer choice. That should already give you a fair idea of how many ‘black Christmas trees’ you will see as you visit homes of friends and family this season. Decorating the black Christmas tree though is far less complicated and ‘unusual’ as the glittering gold ornaments that you have collected over the years fit in perfectly with this look. Multi-colored string lights also feel much more captivating when used against this backdrop while a bit of white with the ‘ombre look’ makes the tree feel a whole lot snowier!
