Cozy Coastal Christmas Decor & Airy Neutral Palette

Cozy Coastal Christmas Decor & Airy Neutral Palette is a sort of whim. You’ll find pretty glimpses of subdued holiday rooms decorated with a decidedly delicate touch. I know my prone-to-minimal-and-serene style isn’t everyone’s cup of tea at Christmastime when so often we want the message to ring loud and clear. It’s so festively fun to take a more is more approach when your heart is overflowing and longs to capture such abundance and fullness. Yet it is the quieter, more subtle, less flashy, less fussy strokes of simple Christmas and pastel holiday decor we’ll visit today.

While it doesn’t scream ‘Christmas,’ this whispery white entry from Serena & Lily above proclaims a sort of understated elegance and dramatic white icing magic.

BTW. What I term ‘coastal’ here is surely not purely coastal, nor is it limited to coastal locations or kitschy seashells. For heaven’s sake, I live in land-locked Illinois and believe no matter where you hang your hat, you can embrace aquatic nods, beachy textures, coastal whites and soft blues.

Muted Pastels & White Christmas Inspo

Ever had a white Christmas tree?

I love what designer Randi Garrett accomplishes in her beautiful home of whites and golds…it all seems to glow and sparkle with sophistication and without glam overload.

Subtle Southern Holiday Home of Sherry Hart

She is such an amazing interior designer and creative dynamo, and some of you will probably recall how Sherry Hart showed us how to lightly add Christmas greenery and simple festive touches a few seasons back.

I love the idea of layering coastal elements in a rustic dough bowl!

Hope this finds you coping well with the holiday rushing that sometimes accompanies all of the hoopla. I must admit it is difficult for me to keep up with hoopla since my strength and resiliency are compromised. Thank goodness I can seek the grace to persevere and lean on the Eternal and Everlasting. As fragrant rosemary, allspice, and citrus drift through the air here along with Louis Armstrong (‘Zat You Santa Claus?), I am sending positive healing thoughts across the miles and fiber optics. If you care to bring that signature scent into your atmosphere, follow the steps for my CITRUS SIMMER HERE.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Loving the white, gold and silver look! For those of us who are white lovers anyway, Christmas is yet another time to indulge our use of white….Where I live, the overriding color is often white….lots of snow for Christmas! 😀

      Yay for how the white snow makes the backdrop so much sweeter. We got snow overnight so it was a wonderful gift this morning. Thanks for reading!
