my scandinavian home: A simple yet cosy festive Nordic home

A simple yet cosy festive Nordic home

Monday, 14 December 2015

It's the simple things in life that make all the difference don't you think? This morning I'm typing away next to my new Candle carousel, the deers dashing around in circles over the heat - so lovely!  This Danish home belonging to Lisbeth Assenholt (owner of Barkshop) beautifully captured by Frederikke Heiberg, is full of simple, subtle Christmas details - a bundle of mistletoe hanging from a door frame, skimmia in a vase, little paper ornaments hung from handles, or a shock of red berries in a ceramic vessel. What a cosy, festive space!

What a lovely home, don't you think?! It's truly brightened up the start of my week.

I've noticed it's really popular in Scandinavia to hang garlands of flags in the tree. If you'd like to do something similar but would prefer not to use your country flag how about this pretty gold flag garland?

Lisbeth sells a whole array of beautiful Scandinavian Christmas decorations (I'm not kidding, I think they're the nicest collection I've seen this year!) here (the site is in Danish but there's always google translate!).

Items I know and love from Lisbeth's home: Fancy finger cushion /pillow, sofa from, Normann Copenhagen tablegrey Snowpuppe lampshades over dining table, wishbone chairs, sheepskin chair cover, sheepskin throw, Spear grey wallpaper.

Read the full article and see more pics of Lisbeth's lovely home in Femina.

Other homes captured by Frederrike include this lovely apartment in Copenhagen and the home of a danish designer.

Have a great start to the week!
