Achieve a timeless look with a Christmas tree decorated with red and gold ornaments, plaid ribbons, and fairy twinkle lights. Instead of a tree topper star try and use red berry stems in combination with gold Christmas stems to get a more modern feel.

Try and place the Christmas tree over by the window instead of by the fireplace especially if you have a cozy cabin, like Kristin from @whitearrowshome has. It is a lovely placement because you can see it from the outside, and also enjoy it from the inside especially at night with the lights reflecting on the glass.
