Breaking with tradition and choosing a white Christmas tree idea over an evergreen is completely on-trend. We're seeing artificial options in colors from bright blue to hot pink. So why not shake things up and literally have a white Christmas no matter where you live? There are realistic styles or even fake flocked looks that you can adorn to complement your decor. Because why not express yourself with a unique take on the yuletide season?

Here are some wonderfully white Christmas tree ideas that put a new spin on celebrating the holidays at home.

1. Simply Chic

Keep things simple with your white Christmas tree — let it complement your home's neutral palette. Add some gold ornaments and accents, and keep your gift wrap in the same tones like Sarah Sherman Samuel did in this holiday setup.

2. Ombre but Unexpected

You can take a green artificial tree, and use spray paint to create an ombre effect like Angie from Little Inspiration did. Keep white as your predominant hue, then accent the bottom with a darker contrast color. Who knew a Christmas tree could be an awesome DIY project?

3. Branched Out

Even simple branches sprayed with white paint can create a super sophisticated white Christmas tree in your space. This look from Studio McGee coordinates perfectly with the modern farmhouse living room and adds a touch of nature in a surprisingly stylish way.

4. Coastal and Cool

A large white tree decorated with cool-toned ornaments can tie together a coastal living room but still feel really festive. We love the light and breezy look of this white pine by Making Home Base — it's anything but traditional.

5. Beyond Groovy

If your asthetic is specific, like midcentury or mod, a white Christmas tree like this one from Melodrama might just be what you need. Hang vintage ornaments from the '50s or '60s, and even add a cheeky tree skirt.

6. So Bold

If you've got high ceilings, or a grand foyer, emphasize the space with a floor-to-ceiling fir. It'll be an elegant addition to your holiday decor. And you don't have to trim your tree with more than a few colored ornaments to create a bold effect.

7. Beautifully Blended

For a smaller space, or for those of us who are more low key about Christmas decor, a petite white tree that blends in and adds a dash of dimension to your holiday look could be just what you need. This artificial option from Birch Lane has the right amount of sparkle. Plus, it will fit in any room.
