my scandinavian home: Simple, yet beautiful Christmas decorating ideas

Simple, yet beautiful Christmas decorating ideas

Saturday, 5 December 2015

I hope you're having a lovely weekend. Tomorrow we're going  into the forest to chop down our Christmas tree  - one of my favourite days of the year! Which means we'll be spending the afternoon decorating the home with the lovely scent of fresh pine! If you think it's a little too early for a tree you could always do as Norwegian photographer  Elisabeth Heier does - brings the tree indoors and leaves it undecorated until nearer Christmas, after all, they're beautiful in their own right.  Here's my inspiration....

1. Marie Delice Karlsson (see the full home tour here - beautiful!). 2. Per Ottar Walderhaug 3. Freckle & Wulff wreath tutorial. 4. No credit (can anyone help with this so I can update the post?). 5. Elisabeth Heier.

See the full tour of Elisabeth's lovely Norwegian home decorated for Christmas last year.

  2. stunningly simple & beautiful. i LOVE christmas. love. love. love. i will never be a minimalist, but slowly, i am paring down and going for the holiday decor that brings the most joy, simply.

    1. I really love Christmas too, it's my favourite time of the year. Everything looks so empty when the decorations come down in January!

  3. I really love the candle centerpiece, I bet it would smell amazing with cinnamon sticks.


  4. Wonderful pics. You chop your own tree in the forest? Intersting!!

    1. Yes, they have special places you can go, it's great fun - there's usually some glögg involved too! :)
