I’m dreaming of a white Christmas...


How is everyone? I have missed you all terribly! My Connecticut visit was a blast and it is  so breathtakingly beautiful there at this time of year! However, while it was great to visit with family, I am thrilled to be back in my own home and bed, and also to have baby Z back on his regular sleeping schedule.  I also can’t wait to see what you’ve all been up to.


Have you all started to decorate for Christmas yet? I’m sure a number of you have your Christmas trees up already. I love a colourful Christmas tree and colourful Christmas décor, but I can’t help being drawn to the crispness and simplicity of a white Christmas like the one depicted in these photographs.




These soothing Christmas inspiration pictures are from the portfolio of  the talented photographer, Sandra Aslaken. Do you like your Christmas décor to be extravagant or do you apply a bit of restraint? Personally, I have to have some type of drama which usually translates into colourSmile. Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner? Happy Tuesday everyone! XX

  2. These interiors are gorgeous! Great inspiration. We just painted our living room white and are having a new sofa delivered today. I'm giddy like a little girl (modern doesn't have to be serious, right?)

  6. I LOVE white...would do the entire house in white if I could! (not practical with 5 children and 2 dogs). Thanks for the inspiration!

    I also used color for decorating, mostly silver and red! xoxo

  11. So glad you had a lovely time and it's awesome to see you back! I love crisp whiteness to no end - if I weren't so worried about getting it dirty in 2 seconds, I'd go for it!

    Hope you have a terrific Tuesday & week ahead!

  13. These rooms are beautiful but all white rooms in NH would be to cold feeling since we get buried in snow. Glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday, good to have you back!

  14. Gorgeous collection of photos. I love the idea of a white Christmas and am dying for a white tree this year. I usually do bold colour but am thinking about something different this year-we shall see. I haven't done a thing yet an am hoping to get moving this weekend- feeling very behind!

  16. really beautiful pics. "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know
    Where the treetops glisten and children listen
    to hear sleigh bells in the snow..." :-)

  17. These are beautiful! I've always loved white lights and white, glittery trees. Being Jewish, I've never decorated for Christmas, but this is exactly the look I would go for. Of course, there's something to be said for going totally over the top, too.

  18. Happy Tuesday to you too! I love a colorful Christmas. I see photos though, like the ones you've shown, and I like the idea of a clean, crisp holiday. Silvers, whites, maybe some light blues. But then reality comes swinging in (on a string of lights, mind you) and drapes my home in rainbow colors! It's the way my mom always decorated when I was a kid and it just screams "happy!" :)

  19. I like it all and have done it all. Lately I've only been bringing out some of my decorations but this year I might get a bit more frilly.

  20. Yes Girl! A white Christmas theme ROCKS!!!
    :)
    I too love a colorful Christmas, so I feel kind of split, but as I wrote earlier today. Next year I´m going for the white stuff only:)!
    Lovely post, think I´ll add them to my 2011-Christmas album!

  25. I am so down with a white Christmas, but honestly we are having a hot pink Christmas here at the Deer residence, hot pink stockings, hot pink ornaments, and then some tinsel and pears thrown in the mix (it works!). Glad you had a great trip, New England is so beautiful this time of year! XX!
