A Skåne sitting room beautifully decorated for Christmas

Since many of us will be celebrating the first weekend of advent over a glass of steaming glögg this weekend it's time for a little more Christmas inspiration. These lovely pictures are from the sitting room of the talented and inspiring Swedish blogger Anna-Malin of Helt Enkelt blog from here in Skåne. I love the way she's styled her sitting room for Chrsitmas it looks so pretty and cosy don't you think?

I love the mini Christmas trees that are trending this year. I've started to dot a few Christmas decorations around our home but we won't head out to the forest to chop down a tree for a few weeks yet. When will you start decorating (if you celebrate Christmas that is :)?

In case you're looking for more beautiful Scandinavian Christmas decorating ideas check out this white home, this Norwegian home and this Swedish home. Oj oj oj so lovely and Christmassy!

I hope you have a lovely weekend and Happy Thanksgiving to those of you on the other side of the pond!


  1. Love the mini trees!! I don't get started with decorating after our daughter's birthday next Monday and Sinterklaas (5 december). Love your inspiration!!

    1. Happy birthday to your daughter for Monday! I'm intrigues, how do you celebrate Sinterklaas? /Niki x

  2. In England the tradition is that the tree and other decorations go up 12 days before Christmas and come down 12 days after. 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' are actually the days between Dec 25th and January 5th and not the count down to Christmas sung about in the well known song 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' where each day a gift is given 'On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree' etc.

    1. Christina, I knew that the tree came down 12 days after Christmas as my Swedish husband and I discussed it when I first moved here - I noticed decorations were left up for ages in Sweden, way beyond 6th January! But I didn't know about the tree going up 12 days before Christmas, so interesting! In Sweden people tend to start decorating over the first weekend of advent - but perhaps someone can clarify if there is a rule about the tree in Sweden?

  3. Hmmm, very lovely decorations, mini Christmas tree are very cute, I love too, I love the table on the first is good idea :)
    Have a nice weekend!

  4. Aww this is so pretty! The white floor, the sting of lights, the tiny Christmas tree.. I love it!

  5. Beautifully decorated living room indeed! :) We start decorating around first advent, but the tree is brought home a few days after the Christmas, sometimes even on Christmas morning. Wish you a sweet first advent!

  6. We'll start decorating Sunday when we get back from our Thanksgiving trip. I'm still trying to finish the tree skirt and stockings I am making though.

  7. wundervoll einfach alles was ich hier sehe ♥
