Wishing for a White Christmas

No, not that kind of white Christmas...there is no snow here in Washington, DC and none in the forecast, so this holiday season I'm craving a different type of white Christmas. There is something so refreshingly clean and simple about white holiday decorations. When we're bombarded by over the top, often tacky, holiday decorations at every turn of the corner, an all white Christmas seems to hit the right festive, sophisticated note.

Porchlight Interiors, a beautiful blog from Australia posted this white hydrangea wreath that I would love to have hanging on my front door. If only I had summer temperatures to go along with it!

Maybe feathers would be a better option for me in the frigid temperatures of the northeast.

I think that my white obsession started this year with Lee Kleinhelter's modern white Christmas tree featured in Cottage Living a few months back. I know for some, it's not Christmas without a great smelling evergreen in your living room, but I fell in love as soon as I saw this. Imagine the limitless decorating options you would have year after year. A white tree is basically a blank slate unto which you can impart a new holiday scheme each year.

And for those of you who want more than just white decorations, Country Living featured this British Columbia home of Cheryl Krecsy, where white was the obvious choice.
