While my last post spotlighted color and rustic farmhouse Christmas spirit, today’s pale and lovely French Nordic inspiration whispers. We peeked at Scandi green and white loveliness here, but MORE sweetness, simplicity, ethereal serenity, and glorious white Scandinavian holiday inspiration is on the way from My Petite Maison. White Swedish Farmhouse Christmas: is pared down decorating simplicity to inspire comfort and joy.

White Swedish Farmhouse Christmas: Get a Nordic French Look Now
Oh, how I admire how antique dealer and shop owner Tracie of My Petite Maison continues to create cozy yet spare Swedish farmhouse nest in the Midwest.
Her adorable (and white!) furry babies add even more charm to her photography and styling.
GET THE LOOK: When the goal is calm, tone on tone and restraint are your best friends.
GET THE LOOK: Shop for vintage items like this French box with pale hues (it doesn’t shout holidays) during the year to incorporate at Christmastime.
Lovely Finds Within Her Shop
Tracie stocks her lovely My Petite Maison shop with only vintage pieces and antiques that she loves and would also put in her own home.
GET THE LOOK: Poinsettia is one direction to head during the holidays; however, pale lovely garden roses sets a quieter festive mood.
Fresh Petite Tree in a White Urn…certainly classic and simple!
GET THE LOOK: Keep an eye out for vintage pedestals at the antique mall and on Etsy since they make the perfect perch for a few silver glass ball ornaments.
Romantic White Simplicity Beyond the Holidays…certainly lovely indeed
GET THE LOOK: Did your granny save every glass jar (I find it difficult NOT to!)? They make lovely receptacles for a bloom or boxwood sprig and when massed make a statement that doesn’t shout or show off.
GET THE LOOK: Chunky handknit throws have been all the rage for years, and knit white stockings bring instant age and nostalgia to the mix.
Sweet Furry Friendship in a Swedish Farmhouse
Quiet White Serene Holiday Mood
GET THE LOOK: A wreath in the window need not be a hefty evergreen with bold red ribbon…look what happens when a wispy silhouette takes its place (above).
GET THE LOOK: I grew up in a house where our Christmas tree was the most beautifully decorated one in town, and my Swedish-style-loving mother often used these candle light strings to great effect.
Rustic Elegant White Christmas Beauty…In Case You Love a Simple Farmhouse Holiday
GET THE LOOK: If you’re fortunate enough to own vintage candelabras where the brass has developed gorgeous patina, ooh la la! However, new examples can be aged as well or displayed as is.
GET THE LOOK: Tracie’s white painted hardwood floors play a starring role in her cottage, yet most folks are not brave enough to make the commitment. Consider going for it in a small area (screen porch, craft room, little used guest bedroom) before tackling the whole house!
GET THE LOOK: Sweet little Christmas trees in aged white urns look magical with or without anything sparkly.
