I’m putting a bit of bling and lots of white into Christmas at StoneGable this year! Over the years I’ve collected so many beautiful mercury glass ornaments and candleholders and trees I decided to put them together for a SILVER AND GOLD Christmas experience. Lots of snow and lots and lots of sparkle. Welcome to the Silver and Gold House Tour…

Today let’s look at a couple room in the front of StoneGable. 

I’ve collected Christmas trees for over a decade. And this year I am bringing them out en mass! I’ve been mostly drawn to white trees. If you collect something show it off!

The newest addition to the collection are these beautiful soft white 3D paper trees from West Elm. The end of their branches are tipped with silver glitter. I found them on sale at our local West Elm Outlet and bought every one!

The tree itself is decorated with white and silver. 

And the Christmas presents are wrapped in silver and gold!

I love to repeat elements when I decorate for Christmas. This year I’m repeating trees, stars, little houses, silver and gold ornaments and more!

Now, no more narration I have lots to show you…






Stop back tomorrow to see the back of StoneGable decked out for Christmas!

    Love all your posts. What color do you have in your walls and trim work? Thank you

    1. Hi Michele, the walls at StoneGable are either Sonnet walls with Atrium White trim from Ben. Moore or Simply White walls with Simply White trim also by Ben. Moore. Hope this helps.

    I love collections. I have many vintage ornaments from my childhood and have collected many more. I also collect vintage bottle brush trees. I have a special one that my parents had and I’ve collected several over the years. I also have some newer ones. I love to see them displayed together.

  9. Linda jensen says:

    What a blissful wonderland. Your pictures take me to a enchanting place. Thanks for inspiration and decorating tips

  10. Terry Nyenhuis says:

    Absolutely stunning! You ALWAYS knock it out of the park Yvonne!
    Have a Blessed Christmas to you and your family and an AWEsome 2019:)))

  11. I was just curious how do you afford to change everything to white? And where do you store it all? I have the same decorations year after year. Any tips on going through Christmas decorations and storing stuff. By the time Christmas is over I just want to get it all down and get back to normal. Your ho e is so beautiful.

    1. Hi Linda, because StoneGable is a brand I buy things to keep giving my sweet readers, like you, the very best. Lots of new ideas and hopefully inspiration to create a beautiful home. I have a HUGE basement, the footprint of our entire home and it is like a store down there. A very messy store, but a store just the same. I have collected so many things over the last years that this year I really did not have to buy much. Just some white trees, and paper mache house and cut out stars, and a few fairy lights. I collect items that I can change up and use again and again. I’ve been collecting lots of silver and white for about five years now. Hope this answers your questions. Some things like the white tree in my bedroom is from a Sponsor. I could not do what I do without them. Merry Christmas from StoneGable, Linda!

  12. Such warm and inviting holiday decorating. You always do such a beautiful job. Merry Christmas.

  13. Nancy Murphy says:

    So elegant looking. You have once again done an amazing job.


  14. Your home and Christmas décor is beautiful!!! But to me Christmas is red and green!

    1. I love red and green too Mary, but not this year. Next year’s Christmas decor will be more Traditional.

  15. Very elegant! I love everything white! What a great idea to hang those pine cones from the branches!

  16. Soft, magical and exquisite Yvonne. So lovely to explore this quiet morning with my coffee, our tree and relaxing instrumental Christmas music. Thank you.
    Wishing you and your family a Blessed and Merry Christmas.

  17. Icy, snowy, beautiful!

    Where did you get the tree in your dining room?
    Where did you get the oversized wall clock in your living room?

  18. Elaine Wesselman says:

  35. I really like your coat hook by the door that is wall mounted. Do you know where you puchased that? Thank you.

    1. Hi Lisa, I found it at our local Pottery Barn outlet. I don’t see that exact one anymore. Look on Wayfair for “vertical coat hooks”. Also Pottery Barn!

  36. Karen VanLoo says:

    I just LOVE your home at Christmas time. It’s just beautiful as always. I see your big reindeer sleigh, and I’m so glad I found one a couple of years ago online (believe it or not from a photography staging supply company) but it’s identical and it’s one of my favorite pieces.

  37. Oh, Yvonne, your home is so beautiful and peaceful. Did you make the dimensional snowflakes or purchase them? Also do you have a nativity that you would care to share?

    1. They came from a local shop called Cocalico Design. Find them on Facebook. They are in Lancaster Pa

  38. LuAnn Davis says:

    Yvonne, I love the soft serenity of your Christmas decor! Who knew white and snow could be so warm! I have a question for you. What color are your walls, woodwork and dining room ceiling? Also, where did you get your breakfast room Roman shades and what are they called? We are downsizing and I’m changing my French /English country look to more of a modern farmhouse style. Thank you from Annapolis, MD!

    1. I’m down your way a few time a year LuAnn! Let’s talk house colors etc. The first floor rooms are all Sonnet. The trim is Atrium White and the ceiling is Simply White. All from Benjamin Moore.

      I got the rattan blinds from Lowe’s. They are cut and go. I took the measurement of the windows into the store and they cut them and we hung them.

  39. your home is absolutely fabulous, and your decorative, creative ideas, is drop dead gorgeous. As always, thanks for sharing. Happy Holidays.

  40. Love the wall clock. Pls link where I can purchase one. Thanks. Everything looks so beautiful.

  41. It is simply ethereal, Yvonne, evoking a feeling of wonder and peace. Your home is a lovely place to ponder the true meaning of Christmas.

  42. Kathy Fox says:

    Home is beautiful. Love your style. May I ask where did you buy the beautiful chest with white swirls on it?

  43. MARY-ANN (FROM CANADA!) says:

    Your home is just so beautiful, Yvonne! Thanks for sharing it with all of us! MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and Bobby and your family! God Bless You all!

  44. Thank you for including a nativity scene in your CHRISTmas decor. I follow a lot of bloggers and you are the only one where I found the true reason for the season. Merry CHRISTmas!

  45. Cecilia from Georgia says:

    Yvonne, thank you for inviting us into your lovely home. I loved your staircase banister. It would be great if you could do a post on decorating the stair rail for Christmas. I’m sure you have some wonderful ideas, I haven’t seen anyone talk about it on a blog. Blessings to you and your family for a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year! XOXO

  46. Monique Marie says:

    Hi Yvonne
    So glad I found your blog. Your house is so gorgeous and inspirational, and of course, so are you.
    You are very generous with decor, recipes and what not! It truly makes my day to spend some time with you each time you write. Especially when days are difficult. I wish we were neighbors.
    The Living Room Chest: I was wondering if you created the beautiful white swirls on the chest of drawers you are showing in your living room. If so, could you share with us how you did this and with what material?

    Thanks in advance and have beautiful day! :-))
    Monique-Marie (France to Philadelphia)

    1. Hi Monique! Welcome to the StoneGable family! I’m so glad you are enjoying what you see here! The chest is from Hooker. I found it on Wayfair. It seems to be out of stock right now sorry! When I saw it I fell in love with it too!

      1. Do you know the name of the 3 draw chest ?

        1. Yes, it is called the Curlacue Chest and is made by the Hooker Furniture Company. I got it almost 10 years ago so I don’t think they make it anymore.

  47. I understand completely why you decided to downsize – I have heard it called “rightsizing”. You have still kept the Stonegable house vibe. We are planning a rightsizing move soon as well. I transitioned to the whites for Christmas several years ago, and we just love it. I call it seasonal decorating instead of just Christmas. We keep the mantel decorated all winter. Our family is coming for Thanksgiving dinner, and our cocktail of the day is also white – a pumpkin rum drink! Our little granddaughters are going to “help” decorate our all white mantel I hope you have a wonderful first Thanksgiving in your new home.

  48. Jina Sheppard says:

    Love, love your silver, gold and white,AND all the trees!

  49. HI! Love your new home.
    Downsizing can be difficult but you made a smooth seamless transition.
    Waiting til after Thanksgiving to bring Christmas into our home. You do encourage me to continue to make it more neutral with a touch of traditional color of the season. Enjoy the holidays and stay healthy?

  50. I love the living room spool chair. Can you please tell the source?
    The theme is just beautiful.

    1. Hi Winnie, the spool chairs came from Ethan Allen. Hope this helps!

  51. Could you please source the natural jute rug in your photos and tell me the quality and how it has held up for you. Beautiful home and decorating!

  52. Lady, I love your style! It’s what I have been striving for (without small successes) but I’ve had no real clear visions or ideas. Now I do! Thank you.

  53. Could you please tell me where you purchased that lovely WALL HANGER BY THE FRONT DOOR, I’ve been loving it for soo long now that I thought

    Hello, I am in love with the coffee table in this post. I have been looking for a warm colored slightly distressed table for so long now. Would you mind sharing where you purchased it. – mary
