my scandinavian home: Rustic Scandinavian Christmas inspiration

Rustic Scandinavian Christmas inspiration

Tuesday, 9 December 2014

This year I love the rustic, pared-back holiday feel. It's all about Christmas trees in glass vases, pared-back branches, pine cones and sheepskin throws. Add to that the rich aroma of piping hot buttered fig and rosemary cider, fresh pine, and cinnamon and I'm well on my way to a cosy rustic Scandinavian Christmas. Here's my inspiration, I hope it inspires you too. 

1 & 2. Hysj-Lundemork. 3 rustic table - unidentified.  4. Mini wreath - Helt Enkelt. see the DIY instructions here. 5. Hot buttered fig & rosemary cider 6. Vanilla Bean BlogSpice cake with cardamom coffee frosting.  7. Ditte Isager.

I have a similar rustic workman's stool which I bought here.

For inspiring Christmas home tours I love this Swedish country home, a lovely sitting room here in Skåne, and a modern Dutch home.

And here's my round up of beautiful yet simple Christmas DIY ideas:

Brown paper gift wrapping inspiration.

Swedish hot chocolate with cinnamon - mmmmm!

DIY holiday decor for the walls.

Tiny Christmas garlands.

Beautiful DIY triangular Christnas wreaths.

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and since we've no place to go...Let it snow! let it snow! Let is snow! Have a lovely day!

PS back tomorrow with my usual home tour, see you then!


  1. Nice inspirational photos, I love them..
    And the last picture reminds me our advert running in our tv for years, it somehow belongs to our Christmas in our country..look here =) (it is with english captions ;) )

    I wish you beautiful day,

    1. Brilliant!!! LOL! It's definitely like the last picture - I wonder if there's a wolf lurking in the background somewhere there too?!

  2. Love the photos :-) I particularly love the copper candelabra suspended from the ceiling with the green foliage

  3. That cake! And some hot chocolate would be lovely right now!

  4. You have really beautiful blog! I could browse it for all day and do nothing else. :)

  5. I like how the decor is just embracing winter, not Christmas necessarily.

    1. I agree, and so, unlike christmas decorations, much of this could stay up all winter. For christmas I would add just a little bit of red and sparkle :-)

  6. That last picture is perfection… I love winter for that very reason!
