Sweet Christmas Color – Sugar Plum

Once again, this year I put up my little lilac Christmas tree {along with a few other purple things}.

If I could, I would decorate the whole house in shades of purple.  Unfortunately, hubby and the boys {my three sons} would freak out, but I can still dream…with visions of sugar plums dancing in my head.


In the language of color, Sugar Plum is just a Christmasy name for purple.  It’s sweet sound conjures up images of anything from deep grape and plum to mauve and lavender.

Below is the Sugar Plum-themed dining room of artist Jennifer Hayslip. I love how she mixed lavender with other sweet colors.  This photo was taken a couple of years ago, but it’s such a timeless, vintage look that would look great right now.

  1. Girl, I was so impressed to see that milk glass compote with the shiny ornaments in it… call me crazy but I am really getting into vintage milk glass and have a similar display in my own home :). I love the crisp clean “whiteness” of milk glass, and there have been so many different styles made over time that there is always something unique or unusual to discover. Like your style and your site, will be RSS-ing you.
