my scandinavian home: A Norwegian home with subtle Christmas touches

A Norwegian home with subtle Christmas touches

Thursday, 3 December 2015

I arrived in London yesterday evening and rushed over to see my newborn niece, I have to say she's soooo beautiful - tiny! I can't wait to stop by for another cuddle (I might try to pack her in my suitcase without my sister seeing). But first, today's post. And since I'm feeling a little Christmassy I thought we should take a peek inside the Norwegian home of Nina Holst of Stylizimo blog and see what she's been up to by way of decorations (it would be rude not to right?!). Needless to say, the Christmas touches are beautifully subtle and draw on the abundance of nature outside her door. They're also in keeping with the rest of her home, with a palette of white, grey and green which look lovely against the natural wood, rattan, seagrass, and walnuts! Enjoy!

I love Nina's choice of simple seasonal plants and flowers which include a white amaryllis, hyacinths, sprigs of Skimmia and of course a fir tree, I bet her home smells divine!

Other items I know and love: Dining - Wishbone chairs, By Lassen Kubus candleholder, natural seagrass basket (love these!), sitting room - AJ floor lamp, painting for sale by Nina, sheepskin throw. Bedroom - series 7 chair, AJ table lamp, glass vase.

Just because it's December.....I also absolutely love this Danish home decorated for Christmas, a cosy Swedish cottage with twinkling fairy lights and a country-style Swedish Christmas. Oh I wish it could be Christmas everday.....in Scandinavia!

Have a lovely day!

PS Happy birthday to my beautiful friend Laura - who I've known since the day I was born (our cots were beside each other in the hospital maternity ward (25 years ago eh hem) and we've been friends ever since!).

    1. I think Down Pipe is a similar paint colour in the bedroom: http://eu.farrow-ball.com/down-pipe//farrow-ball/fcp-product/100026 (F&B also have some other lovely dark grey / charcoals too). It is lovely isn't it?
