Holiday Colors: Dreaming of a White Christmas
I'm pretty traditional when it comes to decorating my home for Christmas—crazy about green and red. But what if your home doesn't lend itself to using lots of red and green in your holiday decorating? Then it's time to start dreaming...of a white Christmas! Here's a little snowy inspiration to get you started:
This living room is a perfect example of where red and green decorating would perhaps not be the best choice. Instead, the mantel is beautifully draped in sheer organza, while frosty white Christmas trees complete the look.
The coffee table vignette pulls it all together with additional white trees and a lovely silver tea service.
Have fun with your snow-white Christmas theme. Spread the holiday cheer by putting together little vignettes in each room of your home.
White combined with silver is a combination that's timeless and elegant. This beautiful vignette would be right at home in a casual or formal setting. Add a string of white lights and let the magic begin.
We can't leave out the dining room while we're dreaming of a white Christmas. White china, white linens, crystal stemware and silver chargers are perfect for an elegant winter table setting.
Just looking at this table from a distance, you know it's going to be beautiful! The sparkle, the glitter...it all pulls you in and you want to see more. Let's take a look...
Gorgeous! Large silvered pine cones, white candles on silver stands and white narcissus—all atop a white table runner—create a centerpiece that speaks of winter celebrations. The blue-gray of the china is drawn out by the silvery-gray color of the pine cones.
Note the tiny little silver pine cones tucked into each crystal bowl. It's those little touches that take a table from beautiful to breathtaking!
