Rooms to Love: White Cottage Christmas
Do you feel like keeping all the familiar traditions of the holiday but making a change to keep this special time fresh and exciting? Well, red and green called and they can’t make it this year. Explore white, a great choice for holiday decorating, especially if you find yourself somewhere without a snowy forecast.
White, if done right, will warm the heart rather than bring on a chill. The living room above with its rustic light wood walls comes quietly alive amidst the mix of soft neutrals. Using subtle variations of tint as well as a profusion of different textures is the key to making things cozy. Ornaments in ivory, linen and snow white mixed together will create subtle depth and interest. Mix white textiles with abandon: pair beaded and brocade stockings, silky tree skirts, cable knit throws and lacy pillows — you can go for a bit of gold fringe if you want to indulge. Even white paper China balls that have little affiliation with the holidays fall in line with the color scheme and add to the festive mix.
