I can’t wait to get started with decorating. While I might not go all-in this year because our house is a mess due to some serious renovations, I’ll make sure to have at least a few touches evergreen branches, eucalyptus twigs and hyacinths in bloom here and there, to add some festive spirit around here.
Is your home all decked out and Christmas-ready? If you are still looking for inspiration, I’ve created six collages with Holiday-themed pictures from Scandinavian brands to help you to create a look you’ll love, whether it is rustic or refined, glitzy or understated.
The chain of affordable homeware stores incorporated warm beige and rust hues in its Christmas look -two popular colors in Scandinavian interiors lately- combined with grey and green. Metallic, whether brass, steel or copper, add a festive touch.
2. HM home – Look #1
The Swedish retailer opted for a look with lots of evergreen branches, white and mirrored ornaments, cream-colored textiles, as well as accents in teal, blue and purple. Just like last year, HM’s style has a more rustic, cozy and traditional look & feel.
3. HM home – Look #2
HM’s second Christmas concept features a neutral base, with shades of rust, orange, amber, ochre… Brass details add a touch of shimmer to the festive look, and notice also the extensive use of colored glass. Beautiful, modern, and elegant – I am particularly fond of this one!
The Finnish brand is the only one in this roundup to include a hint of red in its Holiday decor concept, but it is very subtle – With only a vase or fruits here and there. The palette mostly consists of black, white, sand and green. Yellow candles were also used in the décor, which is a nice, cheerful touch.
This year’s look according to Danish ceramics manufacturer Kähler is understated, soft and delicate: Mostly white, with touches of light grey, dusty rose and blue.
IKEA went for a dark and moody look, and used dark greys and blues with black accents and the occasional brass touches.
All different, and all so beautiful – Which look do you prefer?
