Over the next month I will take turns curating various design schemes for different styles of holiday decor. Starting with the one nearest to my heart, this Scandinavian decor scheme is cozy, fun and unique. Read on to hear all the details...
one - Deck your halls with this whimsical stocking printed in signature Scandinavian holiday colors red and white.
two - Your windows will look beautiful lined with a row of these vintage hand painted candle holders filled with white tapers.
three - Sprinkle a bunch of straw reindeer on a table display or disperse throughout your tree.
four - Easily my favorite Swedish decoration, this handmade dala horse reminiscent of the ones my grandfather used to carve and paint can be displayed year round.
five - Wrap yourself up in this faux fur blanket to ward off the semi-Nordic chills.
six - For a more contemporary but still festive look switch out your window sill with this candle holder.
seven - Finds hints on how to make favorites like saffron buns (see number ten) and other Swedish, Finish and Danish delights in the Fire & Ice cookbook.
eight - This funky twist on the Danish woven heart basket is a must for your tree ornament collection and the first one was made by writer Hans Christian Andersen.
nine - To get a natural, folklike feel cover your mantle in pines and cones.
ten - Saffron buns like this were traditionally made on Sweden's St. Lucia Day in mid December and are lovely paired with black coffee.
eleven - Not for the faint of heart, Swedish Aquavit is a strong liquor taken in shots with loved ones on special occasions, most notably around the dinner table on Christmas Eve.
twelve - These gorgeous updated tea cups by famous Danish label Royal Copenhagen are great filled with coffee, tea or famous Scandinavian mulled wine recipe glogg.
thirteen - Who doesn't love a good clogg especially when paired with lazy pajamas?
