A lovely Norwegian home decorated for Christmas

When do you start bringing a touch of Christmas into your home? When I grew up in England we'd wait until a few days before Christmas. Here in Sweden however, the first of advent is a big day and it's not unusual to catch a glimmer of stars and advent candles in the windows and fairy lights in trees by 1st December. The decorations are usually beautifully simple and fuss-free and draw heavily on nature. This home in Bergen, Norway from the 1800's belonging to Per Olav Sølvberg, an interior stylist and blogger for Residence, wife Ragnhild, four children and two dogs is a fine example of this. Mini fir trees and fir tree branches, hyacinths and naked branches from the trees outside adorn the space for a lovely Christmas feel.

 Home owner: Per Olav Sølvberg. Photography: Kristofer Johnsson. Residence. Found via Elvs with thanks.

So pretty! I can almost smell the lovely scent from the fresh pine needles and hyacinths, how about you?

Items I know and love: Dining area / sitting room Z1 pendant light, IKEA PS 2012 chair, Muuto wood table lamp, Flos 265 wall light, R print. Kitchen Le Creuset pot, stools, vintage chopping boards. Workspace: Light box, this lovely rustic milking stool is similar.

I also love this inspiration for a 'simple and delicate' Scandinavian Christmas. And a welcoming understated bouquet of eucalyptus on a guest bed.

How cute are these DIY Cranberry wreath placecards? So pretty!

Have a lovely day!
