HOLIDAY DECORATING: WINTER WONDERLAND aka A WHITE CHRISTMAS...

It's that time of year to start thinking about the holiday season - at least for those of us who decorate homes and offices for the holidays.

One of my clients wants a Winter Wonderland using all white. Well, I love the challenge but I don't want the look to be sterile. So here are several important ideas I'll incorporate to achieve the look. They can be used whether the decorating style is traditional, contemporary or somewhere in between:

1. Use metallics especially silver. It adds dimension to white without adding obvious color... 




2. Use greenery, wherever possible, to add texture...




3. Use candles and/or lights to add sparkle and warmth...





4. If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace, go all out and pile it on (remember you want a winter wonderland). Use objects of different heights and groupings in odd numbers. It just looks better...



4. Don't forget to add decorations to your chandelier or light fixture...




5. And lastly, layer lots and lots and lots of ornamentation to your tree for a full, rich result. Here are some of my Christmas tree inspirations...




Wish me luck. In the meantime, happy trend spotting...

Peace and Blessings,
