Ever since I was a child I have loved Winter I don't know what it is but Winter makes me feel alive, Summer does nothing for me it just makes me tired and irritable. Maybe in another life I lived in a winter climate. Over the last few weeks in the UK we have had a substantial snowfall it was wondeful to see a White Christmas, but I have woke up this morning and we are covered in the snow again I can't believe it is so beautiful.
In my childhood I loved the Snowqueen books and in more recent years they were turned into movies I so wanted to live in the Snowqueens castle everything was white and covered in iceicles it was an amazing sight. That palace has inspired me in decorating so much. My fave room in my house is my guest room and was based on the Snow Queens castle everything in is either white or Silver no room for any other colours.It is a great room to relax, light your candles and read especially in Winter when the days are so much shorter.
I also love the white and cream palettes from the Nordic countries which they use throughout the house, it makes everything look alive and open.
I can't wait to get out today and go for a walk, another thing I love to do in Snow, I think nature is at its most beautiful at this time of year.
