One last look at our Christmas…
I normally have a lot of white around the house:
The French-style dining chairs painted white in the dining room (because I got tired of them being brown and because my friend Kathy hasthe most gorgeous home all white and shabby! and I want to capture that here!), the 1980’s/1990’s coffee table that I finally decided to turn white, and the slipcovers just made for the living room and the matelasse slipcover on the easy chair
bought off the former homeowner of this house that is now upstairs in our bedroom.
To me, there isn’t enough white ~
I like white!
To me, it’s very calming, very soothing
after a tough day at work.
It de-stresses me.
My kids aren’t overly fond of white furniture for some reason (I have no idea why!)
and we do have a lot of darker furniture pieces; I am a purist for some.
My late 40’s/early 1950’s Drexel desk
is one piece I am not intending to paint.
One never knows!
Every piece of furniture that is more of a natural pine or darker stained piece
has white glass rings on them due to some cold beverage being set on them without benefit of a coaster…
The painting may continue!
I haven’t gone a full
White Christmas yet…
two years ago my daughter
and I put up only the white
We filled it with only silver and white
ornaments and it was stunning!
|A favorite ornament found a couple of years ago at Michael’s. Love, love, love birds and have hung many different bird ornaments from our chandelier, on the trees ~ sometimes all year! From the chandelier, I mean.
Here is a recent post where I made these bleached Christmas trees if you’d like to make some of your own.
White is ethereal…
it is everything that is
it refreshes the soul,
it promotes healing…
I am finding as I get older I am looking for more white objects from china to curtains,
“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”
― Coco Chanel, Chanel
to candles and tables,
picture frames, baskets,
and of course,
all kinds of decorations!

White is right
