I like to call this event a virtual Holiday House Tour where we get to “peak” into other friends’ houses and see all their pretty decor! You’re going to absolutely love it. Grab a cup of coffee or hot cocoa, relax, and let’s start touring.
A Simple Scandinavian Inspired Christmas Tree
Scandinavian Style Decor is Simple & clutter free.
This year, my Christmas decorating theme was inspired by the simplicity of Scandinavian hygge decor. I was drawn by the thoughtful touches that were cozy, relaxed, and clutter free.
A few years ago, my husband and I moved from a relatively large historic farmhouse by the sea to a (dramatically) downsized townhouse. It took quite a bit of purging and lots of decisions, but we have no regrets in the housing department. We love our cozy little house – and the idea of “clutter free” is becoming more and more appealing to me! Our little tree is perched in the corner of our dining room – which is open to the living room as well.
A Simple Scandinavian Style Tree
Rather than stuffing it full of ribbon and a plethora of Christmas balls, this year I chose to decorate the tree simply. Studying Scandinavian style gave me courage to go much more simply this year. However, our tree is much fuller compared to the sparsely decorated trees often found in Nordic style.
I chose handcrafted ornaments of crocheted snowflakes (a memory from my Mother-in-law) & made some fabric scrap Christmas trees with stamped sentiments. Wood slice ornaments provide a nice natural texture, and a few neutral Christmas balls fill in some of the holes.
I fell in love with some simple “Joy” ornaments and white reindeer that our local Walmart had in store. (Sorry, I can’t find them online.) They are nice and flat so they won’t take up much storage space!
The antique buffet is my favorite furniture piece in the house. It has special meaning since it sat in the farmhouse in Montana that I grew up in. A few years ago, we built simple DIY farmhouse shelves to go above it. They are so fun to decorate for the seasons!
