A Green Guest Room Christmas Tree
Hello friends, and happy holidays! Today I am sharing A Green Guest Room Christmas Tree, perfect for any guest suite.
Today I am so lucky to be a part of the 5th Annual Christmas Tree Blog Hop featuring some of the prettiest Christmas trees around! I am sharing A Green Guest Room Christmas Tree as my entry in this amazing festival of trees, hosted by my friend Michelle James at Our Crafty Mom. If you are visiting from my friend Donna over at Modern on Monticello welcome we are so glad to have you!
Without further ado I introduce you to my green guest room Christmas tree. If you have already seen my Christmas Holiday Home Tour, last week, you may already be familiar with how I designed all of my trees this year. This is of a dozen in my home this year.The overall house inspiration theme came from childhood Christmas toys, meaning the color pallet chosen and design concepts were loosely based upon a childhood Christmas toy either myself or my husband received during our youth.
Since this tree housed a lot of greens, browns and natural tones with the pheasant feathers, it was loosely based upon Ron’s childhood G.I. Joe toys for the color story, but the overall decor theme clearly had a lot of my influence with all the holiday sparkles.Traditionally most folks avoid putting green ornaments onto a tree, whether it be live or fake, mainly because the trees are green and they feel that the decorations get lost on the trees. The trick is to layer in a selection of green tone decorations, and use varying tones and shades of green, like an ombre’ effect. On this tree I have used a deep olive velveteen, along with a glittery green apple set of ornaments. You can also pair complementary colors like a tawny bronze or deep chocolate browns to add in some depth and character. I also added in a few light champagne gold tones with the glitter feathers, holly berry picks and beaded garland. This is what I think delivers that camo effect from a distance when you look at the tree as seen below, it reminds me a bit of a ghost Ghillie Suit for hiding in the bushes.I also pulled those same champagne tones to the simple burlap pine trees by way of some small ornaments. This just adds to the continuity of the space and gives a continuous flow of the design. This is always important when designing a space, to have carry through of a concept. You can see the same ornaments add to a card chain draped across the wall mirror in the same room. This year we featured a set of beautiful hand painted Christmas cards done by a family member each year, and will be hoping to add a new one this year.
