While there is certainly colour in our rustic-farmhouse style home and Christmas decor, I do use a lot of whites. Today I am sharing the whites.
Our living room walls are white and I use lots of rustic elements. This vignette on a dresser uses lots of whites and naturals with mercury glass for some sparkle.
I collect ironstone and used a large vintage platter and newer pitcher in this vignette. The chippy window pane was a $5 find.
I also paint furniture and often use white, including this windsor chair I recently painted Ben Moore Mercury Glass white.
Our living room tree is neutral with white lights, rusty stars, brown sleigh bells, muslin and burlap ribbon, manilla deer tags, and lots of silver, cream and white ornaments and bells.
Our living room is my favourite room to relax in and do needlework. I added some yarn balls in shades of white to a little wire bowl.
The black Mennonite pine hutch in our dining room holds lots of white dishes and ironstone. Two of the bowls are filled with vintage linen and crocheted pieces in whites.
I added more pine cuttings to the white pitchers on top of the china cabinet. The little battenburg lace star on the knob is there year round.
I use caterer's plates instead of paper plates at family functions and bbq's so I have quite a stack of them. For Christmas I slipped bits of greenery amongst the whites in the hutch. I recently started a collection of soup tureens and lidded ironstone dishes, and this week I found two more at the thrift store that I will share soon.
On the white table runner on the dining room table is a large platter with white candles wrapped in birch bark.
A little vignette in the kitchen on the recycling cabinet.
A chippy white kitchen scale in the kitchen. I also like collecting white and vintage linens and crocheted pieces.
Our family room has white slipcovers and fresh flowers.
Our porch is decorated with naturals and whites too. If you would like to see more of our home tour, including more colour, you can visit this post.
