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!


  1. Absolutely stunning, Yvonne! What a beautiful collection of ornaments and decor! You are such an inspiration. Merry Christmas!!

    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.

  2. 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.

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

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

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. Yvonne your Christmas home tour was surely worth waiting for. Absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for the inspiration. Have a blessed Christmas with your beautiful family.

  9. One word – Absolutely Stunning!! I mean two words. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

  10. Loving the color pallet and all the trees especially the paper ones.Stunning as always..Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  11. Breathtaking…your home looks like the most magical winter wonderland. I would never want to take it all down. You certainly have a gift. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  12. I did silver and gold this year so well, and it is so beautiful! I love your home and your inspiration! May God bless you!

  13. So beautiful! While my personal tastes are more of the homespun variety, I love looking at the creativity of others, and just what they can do with things different than mine. Your home looks exquisite! A Merry Christmas to all!

  14. Heavenly! Visiting your blog is a gift, what a treasure trove of ideas. Thank you for sharing your home and your talent. Merry Christmas!

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

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

  19. 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.

  20. 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!

  21. 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!

  22. 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

  23. 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! :-))

    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. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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?

  26. 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!

  27. 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.

  28. 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
