My Home Style Christmas Tree with DIY Boho Christmas Ornaments
This is our first Christmas in a new house. We always seem to move houses close to the holidays but nevertheless, I’m more than ready for the challenge of decorating our home and the holidays.
Since we’ve acquired a few heirlooms like my grandmother’s large portrait and some other rather traditional and large statement pieces, I’ve been working on tying them seamlessly into our global pieces from living overseas but not letting our style get too formal or traditional.
My latest purchase that has helped with this is black and white curtains for our main living areas. They also frame our baby grand piano and tree perfectly. So without further ado, here is my modern, eclectic, and elegant Christmas tree.
Isn’t she pretty? I decided to put a modern twist on red and green ornaments by choosing copper/pinkish and turquoise ornamental balls in different sizes to go with some of our eclectic ornaments.
The fur ornaments my husband picked out when we were in Japan because they look like Tribbles (Star Trek anyone? )and I shared them last year. I also included my DIY mini plant hanging ornaments. My daughter still loves helping me decorate but my thirteen-year-old was nowhere to be found. lol To keep the kids happy and focused on the ornaments I chose for the trees, I let them each decorate a mini tree however their heart pleases them.
I’ve tried different tree toppers over the years but I spotted this gold angel at Cost Market (link below) and I was smitten. I love the global accent it adds! I also kept a large thrifted basket I found in Japan under the piano to tie in the global eclectic vibe.
On the left side of the piano is a bookcase we picked up in Japan that holds some of our treasures. It’s fun to mix these global finds with more traditional pieces. I think there is just enough quirky to keep our space from being too stuffy.
A couple of new elements I added to our tree this year were colorful tassels including a DIY tassel ornament that I will share later on, black ribbon ties, and a few clip-on white poinsettias.
I hope you enjoyed the tree tour! Now as promised, if you want to recreate the look or just use some of the elements, here is a shopping guide.
