Winter Baker's Rack - Keeping it Simple with Black and White

January can be a hard time to decorate.
The holidays are over yet spring is still a couple months away.
Winter Baker's Rack
Since we walk past my baker's rack all day, I like to keep it updated for the season.  Black and white seems to work for me during the transition from winter until spring.

Preserved Boxwood from Homegoods
Adding a little bit of green helps me look forward to warmer weather!  This is a preserved boxwood from Homegoods.  It's cute and virtually impossible for me to kill!

Lantern from Target
And adding black accessories give me a good excuse to buy a couple Target lanterns!

Baker's Rack

Black and White Royal Doulton China
I always look for a reason to display my Royal Doulton toile plates.  I never collected a full set since they were discontinued.  I still keep my eyes open for them online never know!

Houseplant in white pot
And I am always thrilled when I manage to keep a plant alive.  This one has been really easy!

I still love the side view of the shelves.

So this is how the shelves will look for the rest of the winter.

Kitchen Baker's Rack
I think we are expecting snow again tomorrow.  Looks like it's going to be a long winter.  I better refill that wine rack!

What are you decorating this time of year?
I'd love for you to follow along so you don't miss a post!

  1. I love your bakers rack. You are so right - it can be hard to decorate for winter. I go right for a Spring vibe. Winter can take it toll. I love the white and black theme. I am your newest follower on GFC. I gave up years ago on live indoor plants, so I am loving your Home Goods find!

  2. Such a pretty piece! Love the pretty display too!

  3. Your baker's rack is beautiful. I love that warm wood finish and the curvy feet and sides. I'll bet it looks great with the candles lit at night, too! Warm and cozy for winter.

  4. What a great looking baker's rack! I do like the way you have things arranged on it, looks wonderful!

  5. I like the use of both organic chargers and the traditional.. looks nice and eclectic!

  6. Your baker's rack look so good. Of course, I adore the preserved boxwood. Stay warm!

  7. Oh, you know you don't need an excuse to buy those lanterns. :) You will be trimming that plant back because you can't kill it and it will take over. Send some snow this way. I would love one pretty snowfall.

  8. Yes a fully stocked wine rack is a must to pass the long, cold winter. Your bakers rack looks lovely as well:)

  9. I love your baker's rack and how you displayed all your treasures Shelley. I think we are going to be digging ourselves out again tomorrow for sure.

  10. Looks very fresh!! You're too funny when it comes to your green thumb! Stay warm & dry, here we go again...

  11. This is pretty much how I decorate for this time of year, too -- kind of subdued but fresh with pops of green. I think you did a wonderful job with the baker's rack. Those plates are stunning.

  12. Very pretty, Shelley ~ I always look forward to your baker's rack updates, love all the texture you included here!

  13. How fun to have this little spot to change up on occasion! The boxwood is so pretty. My sister in law uses hers for holiday decor and jars of candy. So fun.

  14. I love how pretty this is. Great job decorating.

  15. I like your baker's rack a lot! Your plates and candle holders look great together. I've just redone my living room as I fuss around the house during this long winter we're having. I have a new post coming out tomorrow regarding it. I like that your bakers rack offers enclosed storage- what a great piece!

  16. Hey Shelley, wow, we have the same Royal Doulton china! I found mine at Macys and TJMaxx about 15 years ago. They're so pricey now, but I love them. Best dishes I've ever had! Love your Baker's Rack in Black and Whites.
