A MODERN White Christmas

Homeowner Jo Shetley uses signs throughout her home—the sweet sentiments capture the beauty of life. This Timber and Gray sign calls to mind old carols, while its delicate script interplays against the symmetrical shiplap wall treatment.

The iconic phrase ‘White Christmas’ gets a modern farmhouse redo in this Missouri home, where hair dresser-turned-interior designer Jo Shetley eschews the usual red-and-green holiday color scheme in favor of a neutral palette. Jo, who styles and posts about her home on her Instagram account @the_simple_farmhouse, is known for serene colorscape year-round. “You’ll find out pretty quickly that I love shades of black and white wood,” she says. “They make a clean starting point that can be enhanced with texture, and I carry this through right into my Christmas décor.” During the Yuletide season, Jo turns her interiors into winter-themed wonderlands that enchant her Instagram followers and, more importantly, her three children. Jo says, “It’s so wondrous to see everything through our kiddos’ eyes.”

It’s only fitting that the paint for Jo’s front door is called “Extra White” by Sherwin Williams. It sets the tone for the neutrals that await guests inside. The entire area is dressed for the holidays with greenery, including two carriage lights, which Jo adorns with wreaths. “Fresh evergreen embodies Christmas,” she says.
