I'm dreaming of a white Christmas



There are three companies I know of that specialise in selling all things white. The first is London's The White Company - the original and the best. They sell high quality products, all white or pale toned - right up my alley.

Here's what's on my wishlist from the The White Company. First up is crisp white cotton sheets (see above). Great sheets are a true luxury you can enjoy everyday. But I'm also wanting....

......at least three of these simple, ribbed glass votives.....


.....some gorgeous fragrant oils for the bath, so beautifully packaged I probably couldn't bear to open them......

......a mother of pearl bowl, just because I love mother of pearl. This would look great on a small table in a bedroom, filled with a string of freshwater pearls......






....a peony-scented white candle.......


....and finally, some beautifully scented laundry products, to turn the mundane and everyday into a pleasurable ritual.





There are two Australian online companies that have followed The White Company's lead and specialised in all things white and pale. They don't have anywhere near the same breadth of products, but still offer some interesting items. First up is White Home. I'll take this silver platter......





....or perhaps this one instead. Imagine it holding a group of candles of different heights and votives....

....a wickedly indulgent cashmere throw, for when those afternoons reading on the lawn gets a little chilly.....


....and a white butler's tray. Always come in handy.

Last but not least we have Whiteport. Here's what's on my wishlist from this company....


......some soft-toned candlesticks.....

....a grouping of white jugs......

.....and a vintage-style clock.


Now I would be a happy woman if I got any one of these products.
Know of any other companies that specialise in white? If you do then let me know.

Now this is making things too easy for your family this Christmas... you might have given them a little more notice though! You've managed to come up with a superb collection of lovely things and all of them would be a welcome addition to my christmas stocking.

Nothing I don't love here Catherine! I've bought online from Whiteport & I must say the products were fabulous & the service absolutely top notch. Oooh & I'm no relation to the Owner I hasten to add!

"....filled with a string of freshwater pearls..." or velvety rose petals in palest pink?

All of your images are so lovely.
Those hydrangeas paired with a cozy neutral throw is gorgeous.
