Would You Want a Nontraditional Christmas Tree?

One of London's grand, historical hotels, Claridge's, has commissioned Christian Dior creative director John Galliano to create a custom Christmas tree for its lobby, to debut Dec. 1. He'll create a papier-mâché tree dripping with with crystals, sparkling leaves, and orchids in a shimmering white and blue palette. "I hope to bring a twist to the traditional tree," he said. "I want to combine the festive with the innovative, the spirit of Dior with the beauty of Claridge's, and create something spectacular that will inspire the perfect start to the season!"

While the tree certainly sounds glamorous — it looks it from the sketch — and will no doubt make a statement in Claridge's luxurious lobby, I think I might be too traditional to forgo a classic red-and-green palette. Would you want a nontraditional Christmas tree?

I love non traditional trees if they are done well. My friend's husband is an art director for films and they have the most amazing trees every year, and mostly they are non traditional. One year it was a tree made of snowballs, the next it was a black a silver disco tree. Their one traditional tree was an old fashioned one with vintage decorations and train around the bottom of it. Of course they mounted it to the ceiling upside down, even the train was running around the track upside down. It was super fun.

I'm pretty sure my pink tree is considered nontraditional. ;-) But then again, I have 4 trees (2 green, 1 white and 1 pink). 2 of them are small, tabletop trees (the pink one and one of the green ones).

I would love to have a custom piece perhaps as home decor, but not as a Christmas tree...
