In Praise Of A Slow Christmas: Inspiration To Help You Embrace Simplicity This Season

, , , , , , By Catherine

The year 2020 has been unusual, stressful and full of uncertainties, and that has been inspiring us to focus more on what matters; the essentials and the little things.

The holiday season is a busy time of the year, and a slow Christmas might be the antidote to the usual frenzy and a much-needed balance to the hectic world we live in.

Scandinavians tend to embrace a bit of a minimalist theme when it comes to Christmas decorating, and we should turn to our Nordic friends for inspiration.

The pictures below, from Danish brand Ferm Living, make a solid case for a slower pace this season, with an understated yet festive look for that magical time of the year. Minimal decorations, candles, a subdued color palette, natural elements, and a cozy atmosphere – It’s moody, earthy, and beautifully simple.

A reminder that the holidays are about celebrating togetherness at home, creating a cozy nest and curling up comfortably, to enjoy time with family and friends, observe traditions, share stories and good meals. Hygge at its best!
