This Holiday trend is a crafty organic look mixed with some eccentric conversational pieces! I’ve broken up this trend into three main elements to help you create this look at home.

Industrial Elegance – Repurposed, traditional ornaments played up in unique and industrial toned.

Conversational Ornaments – Ordinary tree ornaments will be lost, while fun and whimsical characters will be the show stoppers on a tree. It’s all about conversation, so the crazier the better!

Colour Me Crazy – Green is so yesterday! Coloured feather trees are trendy and add interest to any space. The nice part of a coloured tree is that you don’t have to over decorate them; they are a work of art on their own.
