A Rustic Tree with a Modern Twist

Which Balsam Hill tree did you decorate and what feature did you like most about it?

I decorated the Bellevue Spruce tree, and what I loved the most about this tree besides its real life appearance was its width. Living in a small house, every corner is much appreciated, and this tree didn’t take up much space but still was able to make a big impact.

What ornaments did you use to adorn the tree? Did you have any particular favorites?

I used the French Country Ornament set and my favorite finish was the foil one.

Where do you get your decorating inspiration from?

I usually get my inspiration from Pinterest and magazines. But also nature, and I always try to incorporate these elements in my tree decor.

Do you have special techniques when decorating a tree?

I try to keep it simple and minimal because I love admiring the real life look of the tree. I don’t like to stuff it up with unnecessary accessories because I believe it might take away from the beauty of the tree.

How would you describe your finished look?

My finished look was a balance of natural decor enhanced by the shiny surfaces of the ornaments that gave my tree a contemporary approach.
