For a little extra inspiration, the Domino editors' favorite Instagrammers takeover our feed each weekend. It's safe to say tips and covetable images are aplenty. Here's what you need to know about the most recent feature!

Houston-based Ashley Rose is the Internet's ultimate DIY-er. Our proof? Her blog, Sugar & Cloth, was just named the Best DIY Blog in the (first-ever!) 2017 Domino Design Blog Awards thanks to her eye-catching and easy-to-achieve ideas. And if you've ever visited Rose's award-winning blog, you'd know that along with her love of sweets, she has quite the penchant for vibrant palettes. She told Domino in a recent interview that her style can be described as "colorful, modern, and playful"—and her Instagram page shows that her holiday decor is no different. 

So in the spirit of bringing a bit of bright color into your home this season, it's time to get inspired by @sugarandcloth's takeover. Keep reading for three ways to bring colorful, non-traditional Christmas trees into your space.


A Colorful Tree Collection
Instead of making one large traditional tree the focal point of your holiday, try creating a forest of fun colored, mini trees. All you have to do is pick a color palette (these are some of Rose's favorite colors!) and find an empty wall in your home. We're pulling for making a colorful statement in the entryway. From there, you can choose to dress your tree up with lights and a few ornaments, or let the bright hues stand alone.


Add Small Accessories
If you live in a small space, chances are, you're not able to go big with your holiday decor. Opt instead to add tiny pastel pines on your console, like you see here. Another option? Dress up the plant life you already have! Rose put her expert creativity to use by wrapping cute pom-pom trim around her cactus. When you live in a warmer climate like Texas, this is a cute way to accessorize your home inside and out.


DIY Party Pine 
In a truly unique take on the traditional Christmas tree, Rose advises you to round up all the party supplies you can find and create this tree-like formation that's nothing short of playful. Learn how to recreate this fun idea on Sugar & Cloth.
