Home is where the heart is – or in this case, hearts plural. A pretty pepparkaka (ginger biscuit) garland hangs in the window, filling the kitchen with the scent of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger.
A simple pine garland hangs under a shelf in the kitchen.
Do you have a similar tradition in your country?
There’s nothing like the scent of hyacinths at Christmas. Swedes love to wrap the bulb in moss and place them in glasses around the house.
I love this take on the classic gingerbread house: gingerbread candle holders.
Ida has decorated her tiled masonry oven with a wreath and garlands. A chest is used for logs.
The family’s four legged friend looks decidedly cosy beside the tree!
Spare surfaces are used to bring a little festive cheer all around the house. Here a vase with a mini Christmas tree and a candle brighten up the landing.
Extra blankets add a really cosy touch to the bedroom in winter time.
When I was little, my sister and I loved to hang paper chains in our bedroom. We never thought of adding a mini tree like this one though. Lovely idea!
A garland of pine has been draped over the entrance and two mini wreaths hang on the door. A snow covered tree grows beside the porch.
Painting your window is a great way to add a Christmassy touch – and children love it! This pretty design in Ida’s window mirrors the surrounding forest.
So beautiful and full of great ideas which are simple to replicate!
Is there anything in particular that stood out to you?
