Christmas is full to the brim of hustle and bustle. Everyone is hurrying and rushing and shopping and scurrying hither and thither.
It can be exhausting.
And it makes me long for the simplicity of a white Christmas.
Whites and neutrals and creams with Christmas decorating are simple and elegant and timeless and a wonderful contrast to the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season.
Longing for simple? And elegant? And timeless?
Here's a little white inspiration just for you.
1. Choose a neutral color pallet of whites and creams and grays and introduce a few natural elements for texture and visual interest.
2. A cream and white table scape is the perfect backdrop for a holiday party. Add vintage white linens and sparkling silver to make your table shine.
3. Shop the house for whiteware and white accent pieces and combine with a little glitter for an inexpensive way to decorate a sideboard or Christmas table.
4. Reflect your unique table setting with an antique mirror to fill the room with holiday cheer. Silver chargers, white candles and a simple white tablecloth complete your holiday table.
Want the look?
Here are just a few suggestions to get you started.
Combine a few of these suggestions with some neutrals, a little texture and a steaming cup of hot cocoa with tiny marshmallows.....
.....and watch all the hustle and bustle melt away.
