The crispness of starched vintage linens, mossed pots of Paperwhites, and old craggy chunks of coral. The creaminess of fuzzy woolen cable-knit sweaters, freshly baked vanilla meringues, and a big bunch of full-blown roses. And, the inherent coziness of tea-tinted antique crocheted lace. These are the best descriptions of what winter white is – not a cool summer white (think tennis shoes and sun-bleached sails) – warmer and softer tints and tones of white that are varied and mix so beautifully together.
There’s something about winter whites that work so seamlessly into an antique home. Winter whites bring in light and airiness to any space, as well as a lot of depth in layering when dressing a bed, a dinner table, or myself.
