Winter White Dreams

There is nothing better then enjoying and being home for Christmas. I love this book for it's inspiration and gorgeous photos. Each year I read it again and always see something new and beautiful.
Hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving. Can you believe Christmas is just a few short weeks away? Time this year has flown by. I bet you are decorating your homes. Over the next few weeks, I will share my home and decor for Christmas.
For nearly a year now, I have been working on my living room redo adding cottage creams, white and neutral color for a calm relaxing sitting room. The fireplace and mantel are the main feature and the rock is white so getting back to a lighter look was my focus.

Earlier, my dear hubby and I painted the walls a darker neutral with chocolate curl under the chair rail, but after living with it for some time, it just was not working, so repainting was in order.

This time I used Heirloom Lace and the softness and color is just plain yummy!! It was fun to decorate this room for Christmas.

 I have a tiny white tree here in this room, but my main tree is in the dining room window which is in the front of the house. I will share those pics on another post. Till then, here is a bit of the redesign over the past year and the decorations for Christmas.
I found this dear Santa at a thrift shop. He was in real need of some TLC so home he came and after a redesign and freshen up, he stands with new life on the hearth.
Another gorgeous Santa on my very vintage side hutch was created by my dear friend Marie from Creations from Marie Antoinette and Edie Marie's Attic. This pretty white Santa is dressed in white and pulling a gorgeous swan holding lots of holiday treasures. Behind are white glittery trees. He is so handsome and right at home. Marie is a very talented doll designer. Stop by and say hello.
My beloved piano got a makeover too and painted white. This treasure has been in my life since I was a little girl. Recently, I found a book of Christmas music from 1945 and just loved the arrangements. This great find looks wonderful and ready to play all through the season. I am sure it will be a source for some great sheet music creations too.
Joining today Blissful Whites Wednesday.
Thank you for stopping by. Your visits and comments are always welcome.

Wishing you winter dreams and love for the season.

Merry Christmas with Blessings,
Celestina Marie
