Hanna's Cosy Finnish Country Home in the Snow At Christmas

Hello friends! how are you? Keeping warm I hope? Here in southern Sweden it's minus 7 degrees Celsius (19 Fahrenheit). As long as I'm wrapped up, I love it as it's a very dry cold and everything is white - like a true winter wonderland! A lot of Northern Europe is now blanketed in snow, so we're all hoping for a white Christmas! Do you have snow where you are too? In Finland, Hanna and her husband Tomas, and children Frans, Hilda and Eedvin are cosying up in their charming rustic cottage in rural Finland. 

You'll likely recognise their home as I featured it last year - and it's so unique and memorable! This morning I popped over to Hanna's instagram as I was intrigued to see how the family have decorated their home for Christmas - and of course, it looks as cosy as can be! Here are a few pictures showing touches of red, a rustic tree, homemade paper flowers and sofas draped in sheepskin. A perfect place to curl up and spend 'Joulo' (Christmas).

Hanna loves making paper snow angels and flowers to hang on the tree and in the window.

I love the rustic tree, it's so pretty, don't you think? Did you see my Scandinavian Christmas tree round-up on Friday? There are some lovely rustic ones in there too! 


How lovely! I can just imagine coming in from the snow and cosying up there with the fires roaring, how about you?

  1. Rustic trees leave open spaces to hang and see ornaments. They're my favorite, as long as they smell like the forest.

    1. Totally agree! This year we have a red pine, and it smells divine! Plus it's really airy so you can see the decorations really easily, which means you don't need as many. I don't think I will be able to get rid of it after Christmas, I love it so much! / Niki

  2. Such a cozy space. I finally tried my hand at making paper stars out of brown paper bags this year--actually, I hosted a small get-together and we all made them. It was fun and they turn out well. Thanks for inspiring me to make them!

  5. Such an informative article just to add here, with loft extension and loft conversion in London, you will add more space to your home, which will help you make the most of your property. People are always looking for more space, new and bigger houses to rent or buy. If you wish to increase the value of your property without spending a lot, then loft extension and loft conversion in London will be the right choice. This will increase the square footage of your home, which means more space, increasing property value. A carefully extended or converted loft can make your home look more livable and more admirable.
