Shades of Snow- Decorating in White for Winter

White can be a fantastic color for capturing the clean, fresh feeling of winter. As you re-decorate this winter, keep in mind that the color white is an excellent option for creating a sparkling wonderland indoors to mimic the outdoors.

Shiny Silver

Focus on reflective surfaces: mirrors and shimmery silver to bring the sparkling quality of freshly fallen snow to the feeling of your home.

Swirling White

Capiz shell comes from a marine mollusk.  Once used as window panes in the Philippines, this semi-translucent material allows light to glow delicately.

Soft As Snow

A soft shawl that doubles as a throw blanket is the perfect finishing touch. Wrap yourself in warmth while the weather outside is cold.

Bright White

Snow sometimes seems to glow. A white mood lamp will bring the sensation of winter’s sun with brilliant white light.

Remember, this winter white is the way to brighten with light. Materials like shell, glass and steel help to reflect the gift of shimmering snow. Winter is nature’s way of wiping the slate clean. A blanket of glittering white covers all the land.  Trees lose their leaves, animals go into hiding. Time seems to reset itself, and we humans hide inside as well, retreating to the shelter of a home fresh as snow.
