Our Home - All Set For Christmas!

I might not have bought any Christmas presents yet (aaaaagh!), but I have decked the halls with boughs of holly (fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!). Actually, that's not strictly true, there's none of the prickly bush in sight. Instead a king spruce (which we chopped down at a local sustainable tree farm last weekend) stands proudly in the corner (I think she's a beauty - but that might be because of all the effort we went to sawing away in the rain!!) and I threaded my new hanging brass candle wreath with fresh eucalyptus. I only noticed afterwards that I've gone all out gold (mainly thanks to wonderful Danish brand Nordal!)! But it's not all bling, I like to think the pure linen tablecloth and sheepskins  give our open plan room a touch of cosiness too. Here are a few snapshots, I hope you like our Christmassy home (and holiday table) as much as we do!

It all feels especially cosy at night when all the candles are lit and the Christmas tree is twinkling (I love the dark evenings in the run up to the holidays, how about you?!). If only it could all quickly change back to summer time on Boxing Day, and then everything would be perfect!

I have to say, I'm especially happy with my new hanging candle ring! It was so easy to wire the eucalyptus to it (I used two branches which I placed opposite each other and bounded them to the ring using a thin wire). I then hung the ring a safe distance from the wall (around 30 cm) which seems to have done the trick. It's the first thing I light each day!

Could you imagine having one of these in your home too?

Give me a shout in the comment section below if you're wondering about anything else. I'd be happy to point you in the right direction!

Right. I think its time to go and pour myself a nice glass of glögg and put some Christmas music on, what do you think? Oh no. Hang on. I've got a mountain of holiday shopping to do. Eeeeek!

  1. I'm in the U.S. and I'm always enamored with the Christmas trees that seem to have branches in layers/tiers. I think the ornaments show so nicely, and more sunlight shows through the tree. Do you cut branches off your tree to make that look, or do they just seem to grow that way? The trees that are commonly available in my area are dense.

    1. I am happy you like my tree. We haven't done anything at all to it, this is how it looked when we brought it back from the tree farm! :) I think we must have different types of trees here, I know the more bushy type you are talking about and they are beautiful in their own way, but certainly very different from the ones we get here!

    2. Spruce grow a new whorl each year. It branches directly out from the same location in the trunk. All spruce have relatively sharp needles, so they are not as common as a Christmas tree. They do have a lovely look and smell.
      The Sitka Spruce here in Southeast Alaska has a pale eucalyptus color to it.

  2. This is so elegant and beautiful. My two faves are your eucalyptus wreath and the tulip candleholders. And I love the dark evenings. I enjoy standing at the window near my lighted tree at dusk. Happy Holidays!

    1. Thank you :) Happy you like the dark evenings too - they're perfect with a little candlelight! Happy Holidays to you too!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous. Happy Holidays!

    1. Thank you so much Miruska! Happy Holidays to you too!

  4. This is so pretty! Love it. Happy holidays

  5. May I ask where your candle lights on the tree are from? Many thanks and it all looks gorgeous.

    1. Thank you so much! I bought them absolutely ages ago, they could have been from the Swedish shop Ahléns. They are great actually because they just clip onto the branches. We've used two sets.

  6. I love that beautiful white bust form on your bar cart! Where is it from?

    Your home is stunning this holiday season :)

    1. Thank you so much! The bust is by a local Malmö artist called Lovisa Ekström (bought through Galleri Lohme. It's called 'Hands Off' :)
