Take inspiration from Scandinavian traditions and bring the magic of hygge to your celebrations this Christmas with an enchanting Scandi Christmas look!
For the last couple of years, Scandinavian design – characterized by simplicity, minimalism and functionality – has been a popular trend in interiors and that popularity doesn’t seem to be fading anytime soon. That added with the recent hygge obsession, did you know that Scandinavian populations are consistently ranked among the happiest in the world?! Scandinavian way of life seems to be where it is at. You can easily channel these Scandinavian traditions and bring a stylish yet understated approach to your festive decorating, and transform your home into a hygge Scandi Christmas wonderland!
The key colour palette of a Scandi style Christmas is red and white, against a neutral backdrop, with small hints of greenery in the way of fir tree garlands, branches and of course the Christmas tree itself. Bringing the outside in is an important part of the Scandinavian way of life, and natural elements, such as wood and pine cones, will add a rustic Nordic outdoor vibe to your space.
Whereas the addition of soft, cosy fabrics and textiles, such as fluffy sheepskin rugs and faux fur cushions and throws, will bring a touch of log cabin chic to any setting! Plus who can resist all that cosy soft fluffiness on cold winter evenings?!!
The use of metallic decorative accessories around the room and elegant white twinkling lights will create a subtle festive sparkle. Remember minimalism is the motto of Scandi Christmas design! Indulge in the Scandinavian passion for candlelight, the Danish burn more candles per household than any other nationality – and bring an added warmth and a cosy hygge glow to your space.
And for a real Scandi Christmas look, why not go for a minimalist wooden tree instead of the traditional green tree. Hang red and white decorations from the bare branches to add a touch of festive colour. Plus they are shed free, low maintenance and you can pack them away easily for use year on year – what’s not to love?!
And don’t forget the deer motifs for that Nordic Yuletastic look!
