These Sparse Christmas Trees Will Make You Reconsider Your Full Ones

It's all about the gaps.

There are Charlie Brown Christmas trees and then there are gorgeously plump pines, but somewhere in the middle there are perfectly sparse and aesthetically clean options that are seriously taking over the Internet.

Typically, you never want to hear someone call your plant sparse. But designers are turning the tables this holiday season. Emily Henderson, for one, made the 7' Unlit Artificial Balsam Fir Christmas Tree from Target in her Portland house look effortlessly chic, using a combination of gorgeous black and white ornaments, a touch of red and gold.

Scientific experiments have proven (somewhere) that decorating for the holidays earlier results in happier people. Last year, my family was exhibit A because for SEVEN WEEKS, we had our decorations up and we were all just well…happier. So for those of you READY to bring in that extra holiday cheer early (can I see a raise of hands??) I give you our “Refined Traditional” Christmas from @targetstyle . While this look is a first for me, I don’t think it’s my last. It’s homey, stylish and VERY Christmas-y. WARNING: Looking at these photos will instantly improve your mood.

Similarly, Bri Moysa of Emerson Grey Designs took an IKEA FEJKA Artificial Christmas Tree and made it look much more expensive by adding in natural elements and simple ornaments.

So, if you don't have the space in your home to get a massive tree or you're just looking for a new trend that isn't this very extra rainbow tree movement, the sparse tree might just be your statement piece of Christmas 2018. It's certainly got a more rustic feel to it, but with the right ornaments and tree topper, you can make it your style. Just look how different the two above turned out.
