Woodland in White Sitting Room

Woodland in White with pops of red,
is this years decorations on my tree.

This is our sitting room in the center of the house
and I blended white with snow critters for my take on a white woodland theme.
The glittery and white snow critters accent alongside
 glass, white, silver and gold ornaments with angel keepsakes and pops of red. 
Owls, bunnies, hedgehogs, birds, squirrels and deer
hang beside crocheted snowflakes and clear lights.
This daytime shot shows the ornaments a little better. 
I placed the tree beside the piano this year and enjoying it here.
Topped with simple greens, pine cones and wood deer with
a vintage John W. Schaum  Christmas Album piano book.

The deer are tucked into the greens over looking back into the room
with glowing lights that come on each evening.
The mantel is a simple white, silver and gold woodland style theme
with evergreen and pine cones.
Nestled in the greens are tiny lights and on each end I added an assortment of
trees in different styles. 


Trees in white, gold and silver on each end of the mantel.




Gold and glittery deer stand in the center under the wreath
with pops of red berries and clustered red ornaments.


Three glass candles finish the mantel and glow each evening
tucked in the evergreens and pine cones.
To the hearth I added a wire basket filled with glittery antlers and old wood spindles.

The other side of the hearth is a collection of larger snowy bird houses
in white, green and again that pop of red.

This makes for a cozy place to sit by the glow
of the candle lights.

This little vignette is high up near the ceiling
and I added a snow glittered wood tree, jar filled with rose buds
and candles on timers that come on the same time each evening for 6 hours.

The rest of the pics are from around the room in little spots here an there.

I love this white and mercury glass Santa, a gift from a dear friend several years ago.


Gold snowflake pillow with a red throw just waiting to curl up with on a cold evening.



Vintage WWII ornaments fill this glass cloche on a vintage cake stand and
surrounded by a ring of evergreen, pine cones and berries.


More vintage ornaments with a tree topper and bells still filled with their original angel hair.
The hearts in sliver and gold I created with pipe cleaners along with the silver sugar spoon ornament.


White pitchers filled with greens.

Let it Snow!
Vintage style muslin stockings with vintage lace hand created by my grandmother and made by me
several years ago, hang on the piano back.



My inspirational painting topped with magnolia leaves.



All is calm, window sill display.

Spreading the JOY of the season!


Thank you for stopping by my sitting room tour.
Wishing you a wonderful December Day!


See you next time.
Blessing Be Yours!

Your home is so pretty! Everything is very romantic looking. ♥

I think I remember you might be in the San Antonio area? I live near Dallas. It has been incredibly warm...don't you think? Wondering if it's going to feel like Christmas this year or not. The AC hasn't had much of a break so far. :)

It all looks so pretty Celeste and I love your beautiful windows!!

Ginny said...

Love the woodland theme! My theme is the same every year! LOL! Colored lights on the tree, and the same ornaments! However, when it is my turn to host Christmas Eve dinner, my table is always different. I admire your individuality and creative spirit. Everything Always looks amazing!

Shelia said...

Hi Celeste! Oh, my goodness! How more beautiful can your home get? What a lovely place and your window is gorgeous. I love the arches. Now your decorating is so beautiful! Love the arrangement on you piano and your mantel is so pretty. I need some little reindeer! That little 'Merry Christmas' pillow is just darling! Oh, if I could only come for a visit - it would be enchanting.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

NanaDiana said...

Celeste, I am so jealous-this is so beautiful. It is all just gorgeous, Celeste. I am so far behind this year that I am not decorated. I have usually had things done for two or three weeks by now. Now, I am not sure how much I am going to do at all. So, I will peruse your pictures again and live vicariously for a bit. It is all just gorgeous!!!! xo Diana

Marcia Pilar said...

All beautiful, Celeste. So much love in every detail. I especially love your gorgeous windows, so dramatic. The piano reminds me of mine of over 40 years, which I left behind when we moved. I used to decorate it just like a mantel for the holidays.
This magic season is flying by so quickly, but I'm very intentionally savoring every delicious morsel. Every single day is a joyous occasion. I'd sit in your gorgeous room and dream away for hours. Enjoy it all, my friend, and thank you for having us.
xoxo

Oh Celestina... Everything is absolutely, positively gorgeous!
Your home is filled with the love of your heart, that is very evident.
Again, you have inspired me to use my decorations in different ways and get out of the box. :-) I am blessed with many beautiful Christmas items, some from my precious mother who LOVED to decorate, and I tend to do the same thing every year with just a little twist. Its time to expand again!
It is always a joy to visit you.
Rejoice! Debbie

Donna said...

Wow, you really outdid yourself yet again, Celestina! I see so many things I love, I don't know where to begin:) Love the stockings you created with your grandmas lace. And your woodland critters are just too cute! I also love your painted and stenciled box near the tree, it's gorgeous! Did you paint the French sign that is near one of your "up high" displays? Also really love your pretty tree and deer collection! Oh, and the cloche with vintage ornaments is perfect!!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Everything is so beautiful Celeste! I really love the woodland theme, and all the cute little creatures on your tree, including that adorable little hedgehog. The mercury glass Santa is also very special, and those vintage ornaments under the cloche. I noticed greenery, too, hanging from a light fixture/chandy?, so pretty!
I love how you took that picture of Santa in the woods and used it as your inspiration piece.
Have a lovely week, and enjoy the fruits of your labors. Blessings, Deborah
