In the last few days I’ve felt an air of festivity start to build. It wasn’t until I read the comments on yesterday’s post that I realised the subtle holiday theme to this week’s ten things, which then had me thinking of all things, well, Christmas. Now, we all know I’m a chap who loves a generous helping of colour but that doesn’t mean I don’t like white. After all, white is a colour in itself and The White Company’s Christmas collection shows just how to execute a white scheme with breathtaking results. Their Christmas lookbook takes us into a world of delicate linens, jingling bells and fragrant foliage. I’ve picked out my favourites and added some tips for how to recreate these festive looks. What are your favourites?

  1. So breathtaking and pretty. I love the tiny fairy lights.. and especially their twig tree. Wow.. are the ornaments ceramic? Beautiful..

  2. I have decided (after reading your post) that I am buying twinkley fairy lights this year and I am putting them everywhere …. I can't believe it's taken me this long to do it … twinkle lights for everyone! hahaha Lovely post, I think I just got the christmas bug 🙂

  3. I love the twig tree! I don't think I could ever do an all white Christmas… this year I'm strongly considering doing blue & greens though ~

  4. I love the white theme and was already thinking along those lines my self 🙂

    Will I will be in London in a few weeks and would love some advise on “Must go to” shops please. I Love decor and home-wares stores.

  5. Oh Will, I LOVE an all white palette for Christmas, so classy and chic!! The only trouble is it makes me want to change up my entire decor scheme!!! Wish I had a little more moolah 🙁

  6. So many ideas here to steal – love the starched white linens, the pillar candles, the punch bowl (who doesn't love punch!) and the decorations hung on the back of the wishbone chairs.

  7. this post makes me want to start decorating. i love the smell of holidays. i love to simmer mulling spices on the stove and put up decorations.

  8. I am finally getting excited to decorate for Christmas! (thanks to you) for some reason I just have been dreading getting out the tubs. lol

    Great post as always Will!


  9. I'm not quite ready for Christmas yet but this is all sooo pretty! Very simple and fresh, I love the fairy lights draped around the mirror. Have a good week Will!:)

  10. These are really beautiful settings, the white looks fantastic. Not too sure how white would go for an Australian Christmas given it is so hot here, but they provide lots of inspiration nonetheless – which is the most important thing! xx

  11. White is so perfect and pretty for Christmas… especially the twinkling “fairy lights.” I, for one, cannot WAIT until it's time to start decorating for the most wonderful time of the year…”

  12. I've had a white/silver theme for a couple of years now for Christmas and I love it – this post really has me wanting to dig out my decorations and get partying! 🙂

  13. I want to live in this catalog. I'd like to think no one actually has the luxury of having such a perfect white Christmas, down to every last decoration and fluffy white snow on their doorstep, but I know it's real! Le sigh.

  14. Oh my gosh, Will! You've changed your blog layout, when did this happen? I must have been in a coma. I'm so out of the loop! This is what happens when you start scrolling through your reader mindlessly. Sigh. Corporate job has been sucking my soul…ok I'm out of excuses. I'm just an awful, flaky blog buddy. Hehe. I LOVE the new design, very clean, yet colorful, and true to you! Your Xmas post is beaaautiful…love the chandelier and paper details. Hope life's treating you well!

  15. Oh Will, so darling, so inspiring!

    I especially can't get over the buffet/serving table with chandelier on the top, with a pop of red from the cocktail.

    Drooling all over that!

  16. Need you ask a Swedish gal if she likes a white Xmas..?! I think not! 🙂

    LOVE these pics and the whole idea of white for the holiday season. Especially when it will be around +40C, blazing sun…!

    How you feeling luv?

  17. WOW…im so psyched for the HOLIDAYS…im thinking perhaps a branch style tree like last year… 🙂 maybe painted white this time or black. :))))))

  18. Hi Will, so lovely to meet you the other night.
    Don't you just love The White Company. Every time that catalogue comes through the door I just want to order the lot!
    Have a great weekend. x

  19. Oh my! I loved every single thing in this post!

    Stunning images and so much inspiration. I actually need to scroll back and stare some more.

    ox, Mon
