There are so many ways to embrace holiday style, but we'd be lying if we said we didn't hold a particularly soft spot for midcentury modern Christmas tree ideas. There's just something about the retro colors and patterns that feels uniquely nostalgic and perfect for this time of year.
Midcentury style can often be distinguished by wood surfaces, bold colors, geometric patterns, and clean lines. While that may not initially scream "season's greetings" to you, we promise that there are foolproof ways to bring the mid-mod look into your home for the holidays. Ahead, we're sharing seven ideas to inspire you to deck the halls in retro style.
1. Be bold with a colored tree.
2. Showcase a wooden tree on a tabletop.
