Christmas is coming, which means it’ll soon be time to crack out the tree and deck the halls. “In contemporary and neutral spaces, pair an accent color with silver to add a splash of glamour and sophistication,” Fiona advises. “If your home has more of a country feel, embrace and enhance the rustic charm by choosing one of the best real Christmas trees in a traditional Nordic style, with natural wooden ornaments using red as the dominant color."

Christmas tree color trends this season include all shades of blue, but particularly midnight or navy, mixed in with flashes of gold. Frances Clements, Christmas buyer at Homebase (opens in new tab) says while these are classic colors, mixing them together will give your tree a modern edge.

“Think Art Deco meets boutique style with a palette of midnight blues, duck eggs, and flashes of luxe gold,” she says. “Adorn your tree with a selection of glittering baubles and sparkling mesh stars to set the scene for a Christmas party any modern-day Gatsby would be proud of.” (opens in new tab) Wilko Sequinned Gold Tree Topper View at Wilko (opens in new tab) RRP: $4.10 / £3.50 | This tree topper is a stylish alternative to a star and is perfect for any Art Deco look.

The matt gold and shiny embellishments give it a luxe feel and will add a touch of opulence to any Christmas tree.

A serene look, Sophie advises if keeping to all white decorations that you mix textures and shapes to create a little more festive interest. “You can buy flock in a can and spray away or just spritz your tree with water and dust it with flour to get the same effect,” Sophie suggests.

(opens in new tab) The White Company Faux Fur Bauble View at The The White Company (opens in new tab) RRP: $4 / £3 | This fun alternative to more traditional baubles is a great way to add interest to an all-white color theme. Made from recycled polyester, add clusters of this fluffy number to your tree for a soft and wintery feel. If you fancy something a little softer, pastel pinks, blues and lilacs are set to be incredibly popular this year.

“Pastel decorations are really on-trend right now,” says Charlotte Coleman of Wiltshire Wonderland (opens in new tab). This one has realistic needles and the soft blush pink will look great decorated with white and metallic baubles.

(opens in new tab) Gisela Graham Macaron Christmas Tree Decoration View at Amazon (opens in new tab) RRP: $7.61 / £6.49 | If you want to ensure your Christmas tree is a real sweet treat, you'll need these macaron baubles by Gisela Graham. Mixing metallics work well when you throw in plenty of different textures too,” explains interior designer Caroline Wood-Robertson (opens in new tab). Caroline advises choosing glittery and shiny baubles when planning how to decorate a Christmas tree this year, plus feathers or ribbons with a metallic finish to add the glam factor.

These statement decorations will look great mixed with more simpler metallic baubles for a tree that oozes glamour.

(opens in new tab) Amazon Luxury Christmas Tree Baubles View at Amazon (opens in new tab) RRP: $30.98 / £26.94 | Continuing the theme of easy Christmas decorating, this set of baubles comes with you all need to create a themed look. Layer them up for an ombre look or mix and match with a contrasting colour — such as pink — for a bright, modern theme.

“After the past few years, it’s obvious why a rainbow bright scheme has jumped to the forefront of themes," says Sophie. "Adding playful energy to your best Christmas decorations and making the festive season extra merry, it’s hard not to smile when you see this trend.”

If you want to go all out, buy an alternative Christmas tree in bright pink or purple – this is disco with a capital D! "Think a curated chaos of traditional shining red and gold baubles and brightly colored garlands… all trimmed with vibrant multi-colored string lights," says Jess.

Choose retro or kitsch decorations to give your tree an extra layer of fun. Sophie says that this trend is also great if you’re looking to be more sustainable, using decorations passed down through your family or buying vintage.

Featuring Santa flying over a rainbow on his sleigh, mix this decoration with other brightly colored retro trinkets for a truly kitsch tree. These pine cone lights have more than a retro touch about them and are guaranteed to bring a bright festive glow to your home.

The great thing about following the all-natural Christmas tree trend is that it will probably fit in with your home décor better than traditional shades of red and green.

“If you’re looking for a more natural style, or perhaps something a little more sustainable, then pinecones with ribbon, wooden beads, or papier-mâché baubles all work well together,” says Caroline. “Try weaving a wooden bead garland in the place of tinsel for a more pared-back look - Scandi is all about taking inspiration from nature, making wood the perfect material for your decorations,” advises Jessica.
