Hi everyone! It’s Nina from The HSS Feed. I’m happy to be back here guest posting today about a color story I’m really loving right now: winter white.
Until just a couple of weeks ago, I was one of the few people saying, “I wish we had more snow!” I always love how light, bright and clean our house looks right after a fresh snowfall. Fast-forward to today and we’ve got a solid two feet of snow on the ground (with more on the way!) and while still beautiful, all this snow makes for an awfully cold outdoors!
A warmer way to do wintery white is inside the house. I’ve incorporated it into my wardrobe and my decor. The idea is to keep things soft, light and beautiful so although it may be chilly outside, you’re keeping things cozy inside.
One of my favorite pairings for winter white is with textures and metallic elements. You can go bigger, like adding this pretty pendant lamp with just the right amount of shimmer or this modern and sleek desk with a fabulous high gloss finish. But you can also incorporate little touches like these velvet plum blossoms in your vases and adding some warmth with these Madagascar vanilla candles (which are the perfect color and scent–yum!).
Another way I like to incorporate winter white is with some muted colors and natural elements because it creates such a calming feel. My two favorite products to do this with are this ivory faux fur throw (which is great on sofa or chair in your living room, or even on your bed) and this sheepskin rug. I also really like the idea of a pretty white lamp shade on this natural driftwood lamp base and this stool with a cozy cushion.
So—how are you warming up with winter white at your house?
