Quiet Christmas Decorated Rooms & The Power of Candlelight

Lots of folks appreciate loud colors at Christmas and bold colored Christmas lights, but things like red light strings have never appealed to this lover of white and fresh greenery. Quiet Christmas Decorated Rooms & The Power of Candlelight shares glimpses of interiors which feel like home to me. Once you see the power of a few lit candles, I wonder if you’ll relax a little about any ‘go big or go home’ holiday decorating pressures since simply dimming the lights for flickering flames creates magic.

Quiet Christmas Decorated Rooms & The Power of Candlelight

Oh the glory of a Pamela Pierce Christmas fireplace! The designer (and founding editor of Milieu) keeps a fire going in the living room and drapes the French period carved stone mantel with mixed garland and olive branches gathered from trees in her yard. Notice those ripe brown pears…don’t you want to steal this pretty embellishment immediately? A pair of early Song dynasty jars anchor the scene, and of course, Pam’s white roses are always part of any season’s décor.

White French Inspired Holiday Decor

Son of a nutcracker if I am not nutty for everything designer Jennifer Lincoln-Cutler touches with her magic French inspired wand. I have teased that I want to fetch her tea and just watch her work in Tucson, and she thinks I’m jiving, BUT I’M NOT. Ms. French Nest, I am ready for my French Nest apprenticeship when you are. 🙂

    Love, Love, Love it all!! The sweet pine cone gift tags remind me of a creative thing I like to do and that is make Christmas gift tags out of all the lovely Christmas cards we receive each year. I hate just chunking them all into the trash after Christmas, so now I cut out the parts of the prettiest ones that can be recycled and use them as gift tags. I love to repurpose and this way the card gets enjoyed twice. Pretty gift tags add so much to me and it’s an easy way to satisfy my creative spirit! You can do the same with birthday or greeting cards of any sort.

      We all need to be doing that – it should be a requirement to recycle them that way! I have quite the stash hidden away, and that’s a great idea 🙂

    I’m a lover of white and of candles – the more the better. I add white in candlesticks, wreaths, garland, stockings, flowers, and even a birdhouse filled with gold & white balls and the fine filament white lights. I also add a few gold deer here & there and some gold trees for that little bit of richness.
    My favourite CD At Christmas is Bing. Old fashioned – yes, but it just makes me happy. And, it’s not Christmas till I watch the Grinch. The Who people singing around the giant tree ever so loudly and happily because Christmas does not come from a store. I know! Others will find that strange but it makes me feel happy and peaceful as one should at Christmas. And, who wouldn’t love little Cindy Who?
    P.S. White Christmas is a favourite too. See! Not so weird.

      Not weird at all! Can you even believe how the mere sound of Bing’s voice can soothe and warm the spirit? What a gift. The Grinch brings back so many memories of childhood Christmases – it was always a very hectic time of year for us kids since it was the busiest season for our parents. I think I vowed to have less frenzied holidays after all that overwhelm and have mostly stuck to it. Receiving gifts is not my love language, but oh, it is for so many folks, yes?

    Michele I love traditional Christmas colors, but I adore all white, serene winter-inspired holiday decor too. In our previous cottage I had all white woodwork and white walls so I could pull off the dreamy Nordic look there for Christmas. In our home now we have wonderful old, dark woodwork which is perfect for cozy traditional tartans and plaids for Christmas. I still try to embrace the serene and calming whites in a few areas of our home for the holidays, and as soon as Christmas is over I keep out any of my white holiday decorations and greenery for the winter months.

    This post gave me all the French Christmas feels. SWOON!

      Thanks so much for reading and so happy this delivered the feels! There seems to be a wide range of Christmas decor palettes these days since I’m seeing black Christmas trees pop up everywhere, and I have seen gorgeous royal purple schemes as well. Haven’t done a thing here yet and for any live greenery from the yard, it’s too early unless I want needles everywhere! 🙂
