Sparkling decorations and vintage furniture fill a home with simple, white holiday delight.
Abundant seasonal decorations greet visitors to this 1940s shingled home. Wreaths and garlands are placed symmetrically in keeping with the home's architecture and garden.
Decorating doesn't get much easier than this. Set candles in various glass holders on a clear-glass table to illuminate any room.
In the dining room, touches of silver and gold are elegant sparks against the white table linens.
For added sparkle, wrap chandelier cords and chains with ribbons and swatches of fabric. Crystal beaded covers fit over most chandelier light bulbs.
This casual dining area contains a late-1700s wall-hung cabinet showcasing a collection of white ironstone, which echoes the lines of the curvy Queen Anne chairs. The rustic farm table keeps the space down to earth.
White tulips are a fresh and easy way to decorate any room, especially when decorating with white. Forced to bloom at holiday time, they assume an air of luxury.
The master bedroom has a peaceful and dreamy feel. The bed is layered with white linen and satin. To highlight the cape dormer, floor-to-ceiling panels work like romantic portieres. The footboard makes a clever home for a holiday wreath.
In a white room, subtle accessories can have a big visual punch. Here, a simple wreath adorned with ribbon subtly adds color against the snow-white linens.
Potted cyclamen, dwarf arborvitae, and kalanchoe nestle in tinsel and clear marbles within a recycled glass vessel.
Breathtaking in their simplicity, the white amaryllis thrive in the soft-winter light of a windowsill. The high-necked containers support the flowers' stems.
