Coordinated-schmoordinated

There are two theories of Christmas Tree trimming.  The coordinated tree and the not-so-coordinated tree.  The former of which there are thousands of inspirational photos to look at on various design blogs, in magazines and at your local design stores.  But I have a sneaky suspicion that most people who trim a tree go the latter route.  The problem is, the traditionally non-coordinating-decorated tree seems to be the ugly-step-sister when it comes to holiday decor; looking for inspiration pictures for this post took forever because most people apparently don't want to take gorgeous, design-y pictures of their anything-but-coordinated Christmas tree.  While there are plenty of gorgeous pictures like this one from Coastal Living:
