The Gorgeous Neutral Farmhouse Christmas Tree

I am obsessed with this farmhouse-themed Christmas tree. By using neutral colors and rustic ornaments made from wood and metal, you can easily achieve this look. Adding in extra greenery will add the perfect touch of Joanna Gaines to your Christmas tree. Then, you can wrap real or fake presents in a natural brown wrapping paper to complete the rustic look.

The Most Unique Non-Tree Christmas Tree Ever

Say you don’t want a Christmas tree this year. Well, here is an awesome option for you if you want to get a little creative. Just get some old crates, and stack them up to create a tree shape, then fill the crates with festive things and lights. I think this is unique, plus you can reuse this for storage by rearranging the shape of the crates after the holidays.

Products you Can Put inside of the Crates (or anywhere in your house for Christmas)

The Space-Saving Christmas Tree

If your struggling trying to find a place to put a Christmas tree in your home, this could be a perfect option for you. You can easily create a Christmas tree above your fireplace or on any open wall. All you need to do is purchase garland to make the tree shape on your wall. Then, you can just dangle your ornaments on the tree as if it were the real deal.

Do you have a cork collection? I sure do. This is such a cute decoration to put on a mantle, table, or even use as your centerpiece. You could either stack the corks up (if you have enough) to create the Christmas tree shape, or you could have a tree shape and just glue the corks to that.

This is probably the most creative Christmas tree I’ve ever seen. I truly am not sure how long it took them to accomplish this look, but props to whoever took the time. If you want, you should definitely try to re-create this, otherwise I just thought you’d enjoy looking at it.

Create a Unique Christmas Tree Base

If you already have your showstopping Christmas tree planned out, you should consider adding a cute miniature tree with a unique base somewhere throughout your home. I love the gold painted wagon as the base, but you could find or use anything as the base.

On-Trend Matte Black Fixtures

On-Trend Matte Black Fixtures

Adding on-trend matte black fixtures to your home will create a beautiful contrast and element of design that none of your friends and family will have, unless they read this blog as well. You can add black matte fixtures to any room in your home.

If you want to add black matte cabinet hardware, but you don’t want to replace your stainless steel sink and faucet, that’s totally fine. Matte black fixtures are so bold that they don’t clash with other finishes in the room, yet they can stand alone and not look misplaced.

A cool aspect about the matte black trend is that although it’s trendy, there are many different ways to go about adding matte black finishes, so don’t worry, your home will still be unique.

One of the easiest ways to incorporate on-trend matte black fixtures into your home is by updating your cabinet hardware. Most people overlook their cabinet hardware, but trust me when I say a little update like this will go a long way. You can choose from many different shapes and sizes of matte black cabinet hardware.

Matte black cabinet hardware looks great on any color cabinetry. It has the most contrast on a white cabinet or light grey.

If you’re loving the whole matte black look, you might want to take things to a whole new level. You could essentially have an entire matte black kitchen. I love the use of matte black titles for a backsplash. You can get backsplash titles in any shape or design. I would only suggest doing this if you have a large enough kitchen, otherwise you will make it feel smaller.

Balance your matte black backsplash with gold fixtures. I suggest a gold kitchen faucet, or gold cabinet hardware. It adds a beautiful contrast next to the black tones.

On the flip side, a matte black faucet is perfect for a lighter toned kitchen. A newer trend has also been to add a matte black farmhouse sink along with the faucet.

Who doesn’t love a white bathroom? The white bathroom trend has been going on for a while now. I think adding bold matte black finishes to a white or lighter toned bathroom is a huge showstopper.

You can add matte black fixtures to your bathroom in a few different ways:

1. Matte Black Bathroom Faucet

2. Matte Black Soap Dispenser or Toothbrush Holder

3. Matte Black Shower Trim (only worth it if you have a clear shower door)

4. Matte Black Towel Ring, Towel Bar, and TP Holder

5. Matte Black Hardware

Here is a beautiful example of matte black cup pulls on a white vanity. Look at that bold contrast. I’m obsessed.

Update your Fireplace to Matte Black

There are so many white, stone, or brick fireplaces out there. Here’s your chance to make your living room very unique. Update your existing fireplace by adding a matte black tile surround or tiled pattern.

If you want to save money, you can simply use a matte black paint to paint over your existing brick fireplace. It’s crazy how modern this will make your room feel, and it is super easy to do. Make sure you buy high temperature paint.
