A monochrome Danish home with Christmas touches

Hello there, how're you faring up this week?! I think I've got just the home to bring you a little mid-week calm! It comes in the form of Henriette Bach's cottage in Holte, in the Northern outskirts of Copenhagen. Henriette is part owner of design firm Nordstjerne, which creates beautiful items for the home. Henriette favours a minimalist approach to decorating, carefully selecting items she loves, including treasures collected on travels and of course items from her company. She's also inspired by nature which you can see from the abundance of sheepskins, and natural elements. I love the subtle Christmas touches too. Let's take a tour....

Items I know and love: Sheepskin, Sofa from Eilersen, cushions/ pillows Day Home, Danish Christmas ornaments and dark grey stocking from Nordstjerne, Bestlite floor lamp, Bestlite wall lamp,  I love the light grey cashmere blanket, source a similar beautifully soft one here

You can see more of this lovely home and read a full interview over at BoligLiv.

Don't miss this pretty Swedish Christmas inspiration from Residence magazine.

I had the pleasure of visiting this Danish home briefly last summer (it was fabulous) - I'll always love these images of it in the snow all decked out for Christmas too.

How pretty is this Christmas tree? - it reminds me of my girls decorating the tree a few years ago. I've finally got around to putting a few cosy touches to my sitting room too (over on Instagram)...

Comfort food of the day.

I'm so happy with the posts I've got lined up for the rest of the week - including a Scandinavian gift wrapping guide, a fab give-away, some lovely festive home tours, plus some very exciting news....I look forward to hanging out with you!

Have a lovely day!

A simple yet cosy festive Nordic home

It's the simple things in life that make all the difference don't you think? This morning I'm typing away next to my new Candle carousel, the deers dashing around in circles over the heat - so lovely!  This Danish home belonging to Lisbeth Assenholt (owner of Barkshop) beautifully captured by Frederikke Heiberg, is full of simple, subtle Christmas details - a bundle of mistletoe hanging from a door frame, skimmia in a vase, little paper ornaments hung from handles, or a shock of red berries in a ceramic vessel. What a cosy, festive space!

What a lovely home, don't you think?! It's truly brightened up the start of my week.

I've noticed it's really popular in Scandinavia to hang garlands of flags in the tree. If you'd like to do something similar but would prefer not to use your country flag how about this pretty gold flag garland?

Lisbeth sells a whole array of beautiful Scandinavian Christmas decorations (I'm not kidding, I think they're the nicest collection I've seen this year!) here (the site is in Danish but there's always google translate!).

Items I know and love from Lisbeth's home: Fancy finger cushion /pillow, sofa from, Normann Copenhagen tablegrey Snowpuppe lampshades over dining table, wishbone chairs, sheepskin chair cover, sheepskin throw, Spear grey wallpaper.

Read the full article and see more pics of Lisbeth's lovely home in Femina.

Other homes captured by Frederrike include this lovely apartment in Copenhagen and the home of a danish designer.

Have a great start to the week!

PS Don't forget today is the last day to receive 30% off these fabulous Christmas pressies by One Must Dash!
