There’s something magical about a white Christmas. Maybe it’s because I live in SoCal and the odds of having one are… well, zero. But, this year, I have been lusting after holiday decor that is primarily white. By that I’m not referring to the flocked trees we Californians are coerced into purchasing by opportunist lumberjacks at the local tree lot. Fun fact: flocked trees aren’t sold in other states because citizens of the snow need not see it in their living room all holiday season! So yes, for all you non-Californians, we are officially nuttier than fruitcake with our faux snow! I mean seriously, what the flock?
White goes with everything, obviously, which makes it an easy color choice. Christmas is always so traditionally red and green that for me, it’s a bit ho-hum and not enough ho-ho-ho. So in the spirit of white christmas style, here are some of my favorite living spaces from around the web that enliven the season in a new and inspiring way.
The whites are fresh, chic and dreamy, and the vintage vibe makes this room one cozy retreat. Simple yet elegant without being fussy.
Here is a similar white christmas dining scape that has rustic cottage style. This space has a very organic feel, using natural textures to bring the outside in while adding a subtle dose of metallic sparkle.
And this kitchen is slightly more elegant, yet still rustic and organic with that cozy cottage vibe with the beamed ceilings and natural cabinetry.
If your style is a bit more romantic and antique chic, then this tablescape is sure to delight! I love that they used ivy as garland and really let the grandeur of the space speak for itself. Beautiful!
Venturing into a completely different look is this modern farmhouse Christmas. It’s still mostly white with traditional brick fireplace, yet those pops of red make it look clean yet rich. The pillows feel a bit Scandianvian in design, and I love the large pom pom fringe. And ohhh, those white paper trees on the mantel, soooo purdy!
And speaking of Scandinavian, well, it wouldn’t be a white Christmas without these lovely contributions…
I love the use of sheepskin as chair covers here. It adds coziness to the otherwise minimalist vibe that is oh-so Nordic.
With a slightly more bohemian flair, this room adds a healthy dose of free spirited color against the white walls and flooring.
I love this twig tree! It nearly looks like driftwood, which would be a great addition to a coastal christmas home. This one is still bohemian with almost a modern cabin flair. Which brings me to….
Now this is an A-frame I could live in while soaking up all that winter white.
And finally, some transitional takes on Christmas for you, chock full of mid century influences… my fave!
How about these gold prism ornaments made out of pipe cleaners? Get the clever and easy DIY tutorial for them, here.
I’m loving the white, black and gold glam Emily Henderson recently posted for TargetStyle. And that magical touch of teal really livens up the space. Just enough glitz and glow and still feels like coming home for christmas.
….And may all your Christmases be white….
