Sometimes less really is more — yes, even during such a festive holiday as Christmas. With this charming, simple vintage styling, you can easily blend a traditional look with a fresh and understated decorating approach.
Begin with a 7-foot Blue Spruce, then dot the tree with just a few embellishments. I used the red ornaments from the Noel Ornament Set. This creates a dramatic look which still allows the tree’s personality to shine through.
What made you decide to decorate this space with a simple vintage look?
This tree is the BH Blue Spruce, and so I really wanted to keep the decor simpler and let the foliage and twinkling lights be the decoration.
How did you go about choosing ornaments for this theme?
I decided on just pale blue and a couple of small red ornaments for the tree, to play on a traditional vintage Christmas color and look.
Is there a specific area you’re fond of in this room?
I love the bed area with the antique door headboard, and since it is a small guest bedroom, it is decorated fairly quietly.
Is there a trick you can share for decorating a vintage theme?
Don’t be afraid to let old and new pieces mingle. Bring that old door in as a headboard and use a modern brass lamp on the night stand. If everything in the room is vintage it can feel a little dated, so combine items to create a beautiful and balanced whole.
Is there anything special about this tree you’d like to discuss that you haven’t already?
I love the blue color on the foliage – it is gorgeous and a perfect backdrop for ornaments.
