Every year, we overlook the fact festive colours 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 colour for artificial Christmas trees in a number of US states, including Arizona, Indiana, and Washington DC (where, surprisingly, Melania’s blood red Christmas trees don’t seem to have caught on).

The hashtag #blackchristmastree has also featured in 10,460 posts on Instagram, proving their widespread popularity.

Although not traditional, we have to admit the black trees give home a glamorous, Scandi-chic look when paired with white and silver baubles. Plus, who wouldn’t be happy to skip the extra hoovering that using a real pine tree requires?

For those who don’t like the look of black trees but fancy a change, you could also look into a silver or white number, which gives us all sorts of winter forest vibes.
