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.

Homespun Holiday

    Don't stow your beautifully wrapped presents in a dark closet or heap them under the tree. Here, elegant gifts sit atop a white sofa table to complement a clean finished look in this white living room.

Classy Glass

    Raise a glass of good cheer! Fill stemware and a glass urn with silver ornaments and beads for a touch of sparkle and elegance.

Dressed for the Holidays

    An armoire dresses up for the holidays with a string of sparkling stars and a simple wreath. Unadorned swags of mixed garland festoon the doorway.

14/24
Magical Fresh Flowers

    Small touches can make a big difference. Paper whites and other forced bulbs, potted in unusual containers such as a birdbath from the garden, bring a breath of fresh air to winter rooms.

Simple Dining

    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.

16/24
Rustic Chandelier

    This old chandelier was found under a layer of dust in a box beneath a show vendor's table. The white light now adds sophistication to a casual dining area.

17/24
Snow White Bathroom

    A dramatic and sculptural pedestal sink looks charming in the master bathroom. A bit of fabric and mistletoe for the vintage mirror infuses the room with seasonal color.

18/24
Fresh White Tulips

    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.

19/24
Sweet Dreams

    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.

20/24
A Hint of Green

    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.

21/24
Fresh Florals in Glass Planter

    Potted cyclamen, dwarf arborvitae, and kalanchoe nestle in tinsel and clear marbles within a recycled glass vessel.

22/24
Trio of Amaryllis

    Breathtaking in their simplicity, the white amaryllis thrive in the soft-winter light of a windowsill. The high-necked containers support the flowers' stems.

23/24
Azaleas in a Row

    A column of "Honesty" Keepsake azaleas makes for a great display in the sunroom. These tree-form plants are easy to care for but won't tolerate frost.
