Every year, we overlook the fact that festive colors red and green technically clash in order to welcome Christmas into our homes.
But this year there’s another option: Enter the black Christmas tree.
According to Treetopia, black is now the second most popular color for artificial Christmas trees in Washington, D.C., and in a number of states, including Arizona and Indiana.
The hashtag #blackchristmastree has also featured in more than 10,000 posts on Instagram, proving their widespread popularity.
Although not traditional, the black trees give a home a glamorous, Scandinavian-chic look when paired with white and silver baubles. Plus, who wouldn’t be happy to skip the extra vacuuming that a real tree requires?
For those who don’t like the look of black trees but are looking for a festive change, you could also look into a silver or white number, which give all sorts of winter forest vibes.
