Image 1: You can never have too many ornaments! This tree designed by Ashley Gilbreth and captured by Laurey Glenn is whimsical yet traditional and sets the stage for the turquoise wrapped presents cuddled up under the tree. | Image 2: The Colony Hotel displays Christmas decor with a Palm Beach twist and it’s nothing short of what you’d expect from this luxury Palm Beach resort. | Image 3: Playful Christmas tree with large colorful ornaments topped with an untraditional gold star figure.

It’s all about blue and white in this southern living room. The limestone fireplace is draped with Fraser fir and magnolia leaves that play off of the luscious, large Christmas tree with a variety of ornaments, lights and ribbon. Design by Kevin Bearhill and image by Rett Peek.

Make it fun! Yellow is the name of the game with untraditionally yellow lemons serving as the color inspiration for this colorful, happy Christmas tree. The tree embraces many colors but is completed with a large yellow bow topper and surrounded by Christmas wreaths lined with, you guest it, lemons. It’s a cheerful and truly Southern approach to Christmas decor. Images by Hector Sanchez.

Another example of adding whimsical fun to a traditional room. The tinsels and bright pops of color give this Charleston, SC living room personality and spunk while still staying grounded in antiques pieces and traditional decor. Notice this tree doesn’t have a topper yet still shines! Design by Grace Frederick Design and captured by Sarah Alsati.

And don’t forget to add small 2 – 3 foot trees throughout the home – in a nursery, kid’s bedroom, playroom and anywhere you’ll enjoy it! Make the ornaments soft and non-fragile for a worry-free way to engage your kids or grandkids in the holiday fun. Image from Mintwood Home.
