Scandinavia and the way they celebrate the holidays has left me wanting a Scandinavian home for Christmas! They’ve really got it when it comes to creativity for this season. This theme of design emerged during the 1950’s particularly in Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden. Characterized by functionality, minimalism, and the color white, they utilize a lot of DIY projects with things found everyday. Twigs, pine cones, paper, wood, pebbles, and evergreens are just but some of the things that make a Scandinavian Christmas.
Here are my top 7 Scandinavian Christmas Designs Picks:
Notice the twigs handpicked from the outdoors adorned with simple white paper lanterns.
The detail on their dining table is simply brilliant. Snowflakes cut from brown cardboard, and hand- sewn heart pillows are heavenly!
I love the black, white and red in this table composition. Notice how they manage to turn things into an artwork with the simplest objects found around the home.
They use a lot of raw wood too. Something that does complete the whole Christmas feel because wood does smell like Christmas right? Here is another pretty DIY Christmas statement. The contrast of raw wood with crystal and silver is so pretty.
Christmas berries in a plain glass chair makes a perfect center piece and compliments the random objects on the dining table.
A pine tree branch in a glass jar wrapped with brown paper makes a great statement. Completing the Christmas vibe are presents hand- wrapped with love. Again, a composition of random objects situated with a purpose. The paper snowflake adds a delicate contrast.
Here is a more bold Christmas take on a Scandinavian home. Characterized by white walls, this interior was made to look fun in a whimsical way.
Again, more white, with accents of wood is indeed a Scandinavian trademark. Love the paper stars and silver Christmas ornaments in a jar.
Now can you see why I am wanting this look for Christmas?
