Designer Carrie McCarthy skipped the classic pine in favour of some natural minimalism.

When you live on a Southern Gulf Island, you aren’t likely to get a snowy holiday. But you’ve got a bounty of natural decor just outside your door—which is how designer Carrie McCarthy tackles her holiday decorating each year. The white-on-white palette is perfect for found objects like this driftwood Christmas tree against the wall, paired with an organic palette of linen throws, burlap ribbons for the Charlie Brown tree downstairs, and kraft-paper presents underneath it.
