These Charlie Brown Christmas trees are your perfect holiday addition

The Charlie Brown Christmas tree is having a big comeback this year

If you’re a fan of Charlie Brown, you’ve likely seen (more than once) A Charlie Brown Christmas. In it, Charlie gets mocked for finding a real tree for his centerpiece because of its short, puny, crooked branches and needles that seemed to fall off without much effort.

Who knew all these years later that the Charlie Brown Christmas tree would become so popular with people of all ages? There’s something to be said about the nostalgia this tree brings, and we’re seeing it used as the main tree in the living room and in other rooms of the home, like the dining room, bedroom, and kids’ rooms.

Here are some Christmas tree ideas that will have you rushing out to get your very own piece of the Peanuts’ beloved character.

Where to find a Charlie Brown tree?

There are many online retailers that are selling adorable Charlie Brown trees this year. If you don’t want to chop down a real tree, there are pre-lit and unlit versions at just about every price point. We adore this one from Grandin Road for its sparse, linear branches and 6-foot height, which would look perfect in a living room.

We also love this pre-lit version from Kings of Christmas because you can order them in different heights. If you want a tabletop version for a kid’s room or dining room, check out this one from Pottery Barn. It comes in brown or white, and at just 3 feet tall, you could find a spot for it just about anywhere.

How to decorate a Charlie Brown tree?

When it comes to decorating, less is more. You can choose ornaments in similar hues, like these gold bulbs pictured above. Find various sizes and textures, but stick to one or two colors. You could also do a themed tree, especially if it’s placed in a kid’s room. We love this 12 Days of Christmas ornament set from West Elm, which would be ideal for a smaller tree.

If ornaments aren’t your thing, you could also choose a felted garland to drape loosely over the branches to give it just the right amount of Charlie Brown flair. The key is to let the tree’s size and shape shine and keep the distractions to a minimum.

For those who want a more minimalist feel or need a new idea when it comes to updating their holiday game, Charlie Brown Christmas trees are the perfect understated way to deck your halls this year. With all the other Christmas decorations likely adorning your home, having a tree that keeps things simple is refreshing. You may find you never want to go back to a big, full tree again.

When you're thinking about designing a room, the last thing you're considering is the plates on your light switches. Most homes have standard plastic white or off-white plate covers. But light switch plates don't have to be boring. In fact, choosing the right ones that match your decor can give your space a more refined and polished look. There are so many colors and styles available today that add design and functionality to your home and any space within. Here are a few options to inspire you.

Metallic light switch plates
If you want a bit of luxury in your home, metallic switch plates are the way to go. You can match them with other hardware, such as kitchen cabinet pulls or drawer pulls in a bathroom, to get a cohesive look. We love these from Rejuvenation. They come in several colors, but we're partial to warm brass. You can purchase them with single, duplex, and triple push buttons, so you order all the sizes you need at one time.

If you’re a renter and want to make your space feel more "you," you may be encountering a significant challenge: the color greige. Many rentals often have bland greige interiors. While this gray-beige color and similar muted tones can appeal to renters looking for a clean and modern space, it doesn’t make for an aesthetic or cozy backdrop. And as a renter, you might not be able to just paint over the greige wall color. So today, we’re giving you some solutions to make your greige rental more aligned with your personal aesthetic.

Use rugs for added color and texture
If you’re a renter working with greige walls and floors, rugs are going to be your best friend. Rugs come in all sorts of colors and patterns, making them versatile items to add to your space. And the best part is that it’s a rental-friendly solution that doesn’t require any nails or permanent paint to use.
