Mix trendy with classic for the holidays. Designer Lauren Lake combines white lights with a stylish metallic scheme. When stringing up the lights, start at the top so that you have easy access to the electrical outlet at the end of the wire. Pick a variety of ornaments with different shapes, sizes, and textures. For her tree, Lauren uses silver, gold and pearlescent baubles with sequined ornaments, teardrop shapes, glitter-covered pinecones, and striking gold stars. To make it even more interesting, try adding a floral element with fake white poinsettias and hydrangeas. A bright metallic bow at the top of the tree is a real showstopper, and a little bit of spray snow on the tips of the branches adds a fresh, frosty feel.
