Christmas Decorating With Sparkling White

Sparkling decorations and vintage furniture fill a home with simple, white holiday delight.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Holiday Home

      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.

    • Twinkling Light

      The Christmas tree is aglow in white lights to add sparkle to the short days of winter. Simply decorated Christmas trees can look spectacular if they're well-lit.

    • Light the Night

      Decorating doesn't get much easier than this. Set candles in various glass holders on a clear-glass table to illuminate any room.

    • Easy Mantel Ideas

      The mantel offers a key decorating opportunity but it doesn't need to be elaborate or expensive. Store-bought garland or faux flowers dress up any mantel. Add berries, pinecones, or ribbon to give it an inspired look.

    • Holiday Reflections

      A lucky flea-market find, the ornate mirror in the living room fits perfectly into a corner reflecting the bright lights from the Christmas tree.

    • Set for the Holidays

      In the dining room, touches of silver and gold are elegant sparks against the white table linens.

    • Christmas Centerpiece

      This easy centerpiece is certain to be the center of attention. Fill a glass bowl with your favorite gold and silver ornaments. Dress it up with beads and greenery for a special holiday look.

    • Pretty Plates

      In the dining room, a fusion of green comes from depression plates that are layered onto new white lattice chargers.

    • Light Bright

      For added sparkle, wrap chandelier cords and chains with ribbons and swatches of fabric. Crystal beaded covers fit over most chandelier light bulbs.

      Classic Holiday Kitchen

      A limestone-topped custom island provides a country contrast to the marble countertops used elsewhere in the kitchen. The cabinets have doors that resemble the home's divided light windows. A year-round topiary is dressed for the holidays with a 5-second bow that is mirrored on the adjacent wreath.
