Decorating your Christmas tree each year brings many joys along with it-tradition, nostalgia, holiday cheer-but sometimes, year after year, it can start to feel a little drab. (How many times can Grandma retell that story about her favorite ornament?) So while Christmas isn’t complete without a picture-perfect pine, you can still shake things up and go bold with your decor. Sure, you may accumulate new ornaments, replace the falling-apart tinsel, or swap out your string lights, but often a major switch-up is just the ticket. And starting with a themed Christmas tree is always the best way to spark the creativity you’ll need to decorate the rest of your living room-also consider that a themed tree can help to unify your overall design vision. From statement-making gold to sleek Scandinavian, there are plenty of ideas to choose from, regardless of your style.
