While Christmas might be known as the time to deck the halls with boughs of holly, you don't need to go the traditional route to make your home feel jolly. In fact, quite a few people are leaning away from that classic holiday look to have their decor really make a statement. One iconic item that's getting a makeover? The Christmas tree.

Forgoing the freshly cut tree has already been quite trendy. After all, it's definitely a more eco-friendly way to go. However not everyone is going with an evergreen-hued tree. Folks looking for a bold look are actually choosing black trees to decorate their space. While some might find it gothic, this style can look super sleek and modern paired with metallic ornaments.

The popular online home retailer Wayfair can confirm that black trees are on the rise. "In 2018 year to date, there have been more than 3,900 Wayfair site searches as compared to 2,300 for the same time period in 2017 (Jan 1 through Nov 26), which represents a 70% lift year over year," shares the company. "And since the start of this November, there have been nearly 2,000 searches alone!"

So if you are looking to change up your decor this holiday season, try painting it black with this bold look. Would you choose a black Christmas tree? Let us know in the comments below!
