Decorating with Simple Winter Whites

Welcome to our "Celebrate Christmas Blog Hop" with 26 inspiring home decor bloggers! Hosted by my friend Leen over at Sand Dollar Lane! If you are coming over from Brooke's post at Cribbs Style, I'm so grateful you stopped by and welcome to our Home in the Green Mountains of Vermont, where I'm sharing simple winter white decorating ideas for the Holidays and beyond.

If you like cozy, simple living and are looking for uncomplicated holiday and winter decorating ideas, this post is for you! I always feel like my house is so cluttered over the holidays, and this year I have vowed to keep my holiday decor super simple so I won't feel that way come December 25th.

One of my favorite decor themes for a winter home is winter whites. Winter whites may include a few of my favorite things like soft Irish knits, needlepoint designs, knitted blankets, white candles, white plates, platters, dishes, mugs, white flowers, vintage books, white frames, and window pains, white corbels, and more

HINT, a white can of spray paint will make anything a winter white!!

Let's start with a few needlepoint pillows that I found at local thrift and consignment shops.

I also scattered a few white knitted blankets and white textured pillows that I found at HomeGoods.

Simple and cozy decorating!

Add a few white books to a bookshelf!

Change out lampshades to white or neutral!

Add a few yardsticks or rulers on a wall or in a large crock!

Turn the spines of your books inwards to show the soft white pages!

A simple artificial Christmas tree with simple white lights adds ambiance and is so easy to take down after Christmas, or not! I may leave this small tree up for a while...

How about a couple of white birch logs tied up in a ribbon from Michael's or your back yard!

A pair of old white winter boots found at a thrift shop!

Off white knitting, which I absolutely luv!

A soft basket also found at JOANNE

One simple white curtain on each window that I found on Amazon adds a soft and romantic vibe for the winter months. Doesn't this just make you want to pick up your favorite book and relax with a warm drink and watch it snow?

Here I found this white swan at Vermont Vintage Market Days and filled it up with pears to add soft color and texture to this room, as well as the vintage pine coffee table.

Would you believe me if I told you I found this pine coffee table outside a consignment shop and offered them $20 for it! I just luv when that happens:)

It's so easy to change things up too when you decorate with simple winter whites! Here I switched out the swan with a pink poinsettia I found at our local supermarket. Again, something simple that adds a lot of seasonal inspiration and that will last through the holidays and beyond. I can also fill up the swan with faux fruits, apples, oranges, and more, as the winter months go by. It's amazing how one white piece can be so versatile.

A simple distressed glass candle from Antique Candle Co. adds a soft romantic vibe.

And another small basket from JOANNE's frames the poinsettia.

I also luv these faux white sheepskins from Amazon. They are great for layering on chairs and couches, or as rugs and overlays on current rugs. Winter decorating is all about cozy textures and layering. So the more you can find the better!

White hydrangeas with greenery from the supermarket in a simple vase.

And I luv this simple decoupaged table that I found at a second-hand shop for $20. The wood, gold, and blue tones are so warming with the winter whites.

Now, there's always the unknown elements of a home that we need to contend with, like Ella!

But I think winter whites are totally worth it all!

Oh, and a Farmer's Almanac living in Vermont, is always a must on every coffee table...
