Creamy Whites in the Foyer and Dining Room

Hello everyone!
 
I'm just continuing on with my holiday decor.  In my foyer and dining room I used creamy white and silver with greenery.  I didn't have to do much in either room since I already had such a neutral background too.
 
My staircase is draped in greenery and accented with white stain ribbons and silver ball ornaments.
 


  
 

A stocking filled with greenery hangs on the clock.

 
 
 

 
Simple greenery and silver balls add a touch of Christmas to the pine chest.  


 
A vintage grain sack adds a touch of blue to the chair. 
 





 
 
In my dining room, I just hung a wreath over the mirror and added a silver glittered "Noel" sign to it. 
 
 


Greenery sprigs were added around my white dishes.


 
Silver balls fill the gravy boats. 
 
 
Antlers piled in the basket add a rustic touch. 
 





I will be serving dinner in here on Christmas Eve night.




  
 
Up next............the heart of the home...........the kitchen!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Your home is just so pretty Kelly. I'm amazed at how you've completely changed your color scheme in what seems like a short period of time. You are very talented.

I really love the subtle tones that you've used. I think my favorite thing is the wall basket full of greens and branches. Natural decor is the best:)

Kelly,

Can't wait to see your kitchen. I love your holiday decor! Your home is calm and relaxing with all the neutrals. I just retired from my of 18 years and will take one whole year off for educational leave so I'm stuck with the red couches for another year! I love the way you left some of the wood natural and mixed it in with painted pieces. Your home is always so lovely to look at and your photography really shows it off!

Please come arrange my whole house, even if not for a holiday!
