Inspiring Designer Christmas Trees

Need some last minute decor ideas for your tree? Take a peek at some of our favorite designers' creations this year.
  1. This Tea Party Christmas Tree by Danny Seo Media Ventures is decorated with tea cups, strainers, tea bags, chopsticks and fortune cookies.

  2. Lifestyle expert Kelley Moore's frosted tree gets dressed up! A chartreuse tree skirt with a wide cuff of chartreuse sequins anchors a tree covered in faux snow.

  3. Quilter Denyse Schmidt decorates her silver tree with scrap fabric-covered ornaments.

  4. Deborah Lloyd, Creative Director at Kate Spade, sticks to trendy grays, blues and sparkly whites to create her magical Christmas tree

  5. Sandra Espinet uses lots of white and sparkle for this tree she designed for Dancing with the Stars TV host, Brooke Burke.

  6. Pick two colors and stick to those like Jen Bertrand (HGTV's Design Star 2008 winner) did when decorating her tree this year. For a festive touch, she added sparkly faux branches and wove ribbon throughout.

  7. Cecilie Starin, an interior designer in San Francisco, used an old French-inspired dollhouse as a tree stand for a playful touch.

  8. Gold snowflakes and jewel-toned ornaments decorate this tree by Jeanine Hays of modern housewares shop, AphroChic.

  9. You might expect a neatly organized tree from someone who works for The Container Store! White lights and pops of red keep Olescia Hanson’s nobel tree beautifully simple.

  10. Kristen Buckingham hails from sunny California, more notable for its laidback, carefree style -- but her tree is chic and traditional (complete with candy canes).

  11. Edna Hayes Needleman decorates her flocked tree with handmade ornaments from a family of Mexican artisans she’s worked with for years. Edna's holiday style is simple, nature-inspired decor with a Southwestern flair -- just like her lifestyle store, Salsa Trading Company.

  12. Interior designer Jack Poles of Georgia decorates his 8-foot tall Blue Spruce by anchoring it in an antique jar and topping it with lots of leopard print and leopard ornaments, crystal accents, gold birds with black tails, orange jeweled ornaments and a pheasant tree topper.
