Kim Kardashian's snow-covered trees
Searching for minimalist Christmas decoration ideas? Kim Kardashian's trees are a chic and elegant choice.
Why we love Kim Kardashian's snow-covered trees
When searching for Christmas tree ideas, your eyes might first be drawn to tinsel and ornaments — but for a more subtle look, you might want to consider not having anything at all. “Kim Kardashian’s trees prove that trees can look beautiful without being cluttered by heavy decorations,” says Emily Lambe, deputy editor of Real Homes. “The focus is instead on the natural leaves and contrasting green and white colors.” This is a sophisticated Christmas color scheme.
Emily is the deputy editor of Real Homes. She's always on the lookout for on-trend decor that's suitable for rentals. Christmas is one of her favorite times of year and she loves finding new ways to decorate for it.
You could achieve this look either by grabbing a tree that’s flocked or by using fake snow spray so you can decorate your own. “Buying a flocked tree will save you time and effort, but if you are just going for a snow-covered tree, buying fake snow spray and decorating with it could be a fun way to get the whole family involved in the process,” Emily explains.
Kim Kardashian has decorated her entire hallway with trees, and while you might not have space for this in your small home, you can still get the look with fewer trees. “You could place a few trees against a wall to create a winter wonderland-esque display,” she says. “This doesn’t just need to be in your hallway — you could do this in your living room or bedroom and still create a dreamy effect.”
This is an easy way to make your home festive and can even be budget-friendly. “If you just stick with one tree with a snow effect, you’ll save yourself so much money on your Christmas tree, as you won’t need to buy anything else for it,” Emily adds. “This will give you more budget to spend on other festive decor in the home or even on Christmas presents.” The holidays are known for being expensive, so finding any way to save dollars is useful.
