Happy holidays dear reader! No matter what you celebrate, this time of year is filled with light and laughter. For many, this is the time to decorate for the Christmas season. With the rise in popularity of the nordic/scandinavian decoration style, you may be looking for scandi decoration ideas. If you find yourself in that situation (or if you’re a little bored), I have some tips for you.
When trying to achieve that Scandinavian style Christmas look, stick to mostly white, grey, woods, and pops of red and greens. In general, stick to a white base, then add some neutral and bright accents. This means staying aways from flashy metallics or cheesy sparkly decor (I am straight up banning those blow up lawn decorations, no one needs a giant creepy Santa on their lawn)
After some deep Pinterest diving (that website is pandora’s box), I have found three important elements to add to your space. The first being natural elements such as real garlands or sprigs of pine in a neutral vase. Scandi decor really focuses more on the outside, so make sure to include either fake or real greenery of some kind. The second is nordic/scandi patterns. There are some beautiful red, blue, green and white folk patterns all over the scandal decor. An easy way to include pattern is through stockings or on cookies. No nordic decor would be complete without the third and final decor element, hygge. This means simply coziness, make sure to include some comfy blankets and pillows. So reader, make sure to curl up by a fire with a steaming mug and a good book. Wishing you all a hygge and healthy holiday this year.
