Scandinavian interior design is always popular and it’s a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. So when it comes to Christmas, keep that interior style going with some stylish Scandinavian-inspired minimalist Christmas decorations.
The best way to create a Scandinavian Christmas theme is to keep things simple, with neutral colours and plenty of natural elements. Bring in some greenery to your space with wreaths, fir tree branches in a vase or some evergreen plants. Remember to adorn your sofa and chairs with soft textiles and dot some warming flickering candles around the place.
I’ve pulled together some of my favourite Scandinavian-inspired Christmas decorations which you can include in your styling. These little accessories will help add to your Scandinavian-inspired Christmas style.
Bringing in a natural element is key to Scandinavian Christmas decorations. These beautiful woven stars are created with paper cane, hand woven in Bristol using ethically sourced materials. Hang them on the tree, in a window or prop them up on shelving.
Large, vibrant and colourful. This extra large wooden hanging decoration will look great hanging from a wall. It’s 29cm high and 19cm wide, so will absolutely be a talking point in your Scandinavian Christmas decoration theme. These are hand-screen printed, cut from plywood and come in a variety of colours and designs.
If you’re looking for a sustainable decoration that can be used all year but can easily make festive with a few decorations or lights, the lovely Norfolk Island Pine is the perfect houseplant. I’ve had one for over a year now and each Christmas I hand some lightweight baubles from its branches.
I’ve seen many little light-up houses in Scandinavian Instagrammers’ homes and oh my, they look so pretty. So not entirely Christmassy which means you can have these out all winter.
Including natural materials in your Christmas decor is always a good idea and these cute little wooden deers are perfect. Hang some on the tree, from garlands and anywhere else you fancy.
A large hanging light-up star in a window is a must-have. They not only look good, but they make your home feel nice and welcoming for guests. I’ve got 3 in all different windows at home and I adore them so much.
If you’ve got a dark corner in your home that needs a little festive light, these twig lights from Homesense will add a nice warm glow. You can even put these lights outside in the garden. Try swapping out a floor lamp and putting this in its place for the festive season.
The warm glow from this LED wreath is attractive, especially in pride of place above a fireplace or on a sideboard. Try taking down a picture in your hallway and replacing it with this over Christmas to add a warm glow.
Garlands are such a versatile way of decorating. You could hang it around the roof of your porch like this, which looks so very welcoming. Or you could run it along a sideboard, down a bannister or the stairs or hang it down the corner of a room. The lights give off a warm glow which looks excellent.
