Our Home - All Ready for Christmas!


Hej hej! I hope you had a lovely weekend! In our house, it's been a hive of activity - decorating, watching family films,  and even a little baking (yes, us - baking!). And of course, a healthy dose of the normal (albeit infuriating) - kids fighting, the tree nearly toppling over (gaaah!) and general Christmas chaos.... Even so, when you stop and look around once in a while, everything feels so cosy - and sometimes, especially now, you get the feeling that being safe and sound in our homes really is not a bad place to be, even if we all do desperately miss friends and family from afar. So, in celebration of the winter solstice today - and the home in general, I thought I'd share a few snapshots from our little place in Malmö, all decorated for Christmas! 

We love to use as natural decorations as possible - including paper flowers, dried oranges, alder cones and sprigs of pine, they add such a cosy touch and smell wonderful!


No Christmas in Sweden would be complete without the sweet smell of Pepparkaka. And they are so simple to make. I mean, even I manage occasionally - and we all know how bad I am at baking! There's a good recipe here

And my little elves love to decorate them too! 

And then we sprinkle them with fairy dust (icing sugar), just to make sure they're sweet enough (!!). 

We love our Snöblomma ('Snow Flower' lantern) in the kitchen window - it glows from morning to night and helps us to pretend the sun is shining outside. 


What are they plotting I wonder? I've been the subject to at least three pranks already this week already. FYI I receive the faux fur blanket (pic doesn't do the colour justice) that they're cosying under as a present from Apparis - along with two sparkly face masks (fab!) - it's the softest, most cosy blanket I've EVER touched, and I'm honestly not just saying that. Needless to say, I've barely had a look in since it arrived.  

And even Per got to relax a little - and in the top spot too! 

Roll on Christmas, the Brantmarks are ready for you (and those Zoom calls!).

I hope you are having a cosy time at home too. 

With only a few days to go until the holidays I've planned a 'My Scandinavian Home Best of 2020' post for tomorrow. I always think it's so exciting to see which posts have resonated the most with everyone - and this year has an extra special mix - as you can imagine. Make sure you stop by to take a peek!

  3. Your home is very lovely and cozy (cosy!). It looks so festive with the holiday adornments and it looks like the perfect match to your way of describing design features that you love and write about here. Nice moments captured of your charming family, too! Still loving the paper flowers! I did check out the link for the Snoblomma in the previous post. You were correct, the ship to the U.S., but we’re out of stock. Maybe I’ll find one next year! Happy holidays!🎄
