Bright and White

Not all artificial trees need to flirt with kitsch. This all-white Christmas tree glows in an ethereal white halo.

Masculine Color Combo

An artificial white tree is a great canvas for your ornament collection. Here, designer Brian Patrick Flynn used his signature color: purple.

Pretty in Pink

Cheryl Burke got a similar set up in her holiday home but in some feminine shades of pink. The look is a little bit retro, a little bit sweet and a lot of fun.

Parchment and White

This tree designed by Brian Patrick Flynn is also a crisp shade of white, but this time it's complemented by the neutral parchment ornaments. Mod holiday minimalism at its finest!

Splashes of Pink

A small white tree with pink and turquoise ornaments would be a welcome addition in just about any teen girl's bedroom.

Double the Pretty

Q: What's better than one red tree at Fantasy of Trees? A: Two red trees.
