Over the years, Christmas tree styles have definitely evolved—even if classic pine, fir, and spruce varieties have always stayed relevant. Just think back to the shiny tinsel trees from the mid-century modern era or to the white Christmas tree craze of the ’90s. Well, this year, the world of holiday decor just might be coming full circle on one of those trends. I’ve been noticing lots of snowy white trees popping up in stores and in the homes of some super stylish people. 

Is this white out a flash in the pan or a legit trend with potential staying power that makes investing in one of these styles worth considering? Hard to say. I don’t think bright white branches are going to ever replace a fresh Douglas Fir, but if you like doing something different with your holiday decor, take a look at these chic frosted options, and you decide what might work for you in your home.

1. White and bright

The best thing about white Christmas trees is their ability to make colorful baubles pop. This Georgia home shows how a rainbow assortment of ornaments looks even more vivid on a white tree. If you’re after a sweet, sugarplum fairy look, then a white tree might be up your alley for this reason.

2. White decorations

You may love the idea of a winter white theme but not be thrilled at the idea of a white tree. In this case, a green tree adorned with snowy ornaments is a perfect solution. This apartment in Vienna is the perfect example of adding white in a more refined, restrained sense.

3. Light and airy

This gorgeous Dutch home opted for a whimsical silvery white Christmas tree. It blends flawlessly into the surrounding walls while still standing out, thanks to the assortment of colorful ornaments on its boughs. Again, if you’re looking to let your collection of ornaments take center stage, a white tree is a good way to do that.

4. Red, white, and green

If you’re a lover of traditional Christmas colors but want to spice things up a bit, copy one of the trees in this Texas-based home. Decked out in red and green trimmings, this tree is reminiscent of snow-coated branches in the North Pole and has a retro sensibility to boot.

5. Modern and stylish

This impeccably styled Dallas home shows how white tree decorations can give off a cozy Scandinavian vibe. Whether it’s wooden ornaments painted white or sparkly snowflakes, you can adopt a white color palette for any tree.

6. Rainbow bright

Maximalists will appreciate matching their trees to their more is more decorating philosophy. This beautiful rainbow tree from Jennifer Perkins’ Austin home is a great choice for lovers of color. White certainly is a great neutral base for whatever shades you want to throw at it.

7. Unconventional tree

Holiday rebels will fawn over this Christmas tree-inspired idea. Hang a large white branch over a space—in this case, a gorgeous bedroom—and add a few unique ornaments to its branches. It’s a dreamy decorating move that’s a bit out of the ordinary but still festive. If you don’t have an overhead lighting fixture, this is a great solution for filling blank space above a headboard.

8. Silver twist

If you prefer a little dazzle in your decor, sometimes ornaments just don’t cut it. Instead, try a silver-infused tree or a white tree with glitter or metallic flecks. This gorgeous sparkler is a great idea for those who prefer pizzazz to matte, minimal looks.
