During the holiday season, I want my home to feel warm and festive without going overboard. I’ve noticed for the past few years as I unpack and go through the assorted decorations that I’ve accumulated over the years, that I have become very selective about what decorations I actually use. I prefer to stick with one style so my home is decorated but put together and done simply. For me, the style that I’ve come to love is Scandinavian inspired design. This style is perfect for minimalists, those that like a more playful look, and for the more traditional decorators alike. A Scandinavian inspired Christmas offers something for every taste.
Scandinavian décor is many things— it is known for its soft color palette, soft lighting, and fine lines which makes for a very quiet serene look. This room uses mostly grays creams and whites. Layering in various textures for interest like the faux fur throw, cowhide, and embellished deer pillows. Adding in additional white, glass, and bleached wood accessories for a cozy feel. The woven metallic gold toned ornaments in the glass vase, and the beading and detailed stitch work on the deer pillow gives a nod to more traditional or classic tastes.
