Effortlessly chic, the Scandi Christmas trend is a returning favorite year after year. More subtle than all that glitters and novelty decorations, this Nordic-inspired trend is more about bright airy atmospheres with all the cozy details and just the right amount of sparkle in-between. Discover our top tips on how to style this timeless trend in your home...
A light, neutral color palette forms the foundation with hints of darker tones such as chestnut brown and charcoal gray creating depth. Muted metallics such as champagne, antique brass, and nickel are the perfect choice in place of traditional garish gold and sparkling silver tones. Natural decorations such as wooden ornaments, dried eucalyptus stems, and frosted wreaths alongside woodland animal motifs like stag decorations, owl ornaments, or polar bear prints bring that Nordic forest feel to the look.
Simplicity is key to keeping it cool and chic this Christmas with a Scandi influence. Replace traditional festive decorations with subtle alternatives. Replace tinsel with fir tree garlands or ivy and use delicate, warm white fairy lights in place of colorful string lights allowing your tree to complement your interior rather than taking center stage.
The festive season is the perfect time to embrace the Scandinavian concept, Hygge, and keep a cozy, stress-free home you can escape to. Flickering candles and warm decorative lighting mimic the glow from a roaring fire whilst sumptuously soft pillows, faux fur details, and cowhide or sheepskin rugs will transform your living space into your very own cozy log cabin.
Finally, filling your home with luxurious fragrance is key for creating a festive atmosphere. Stick to crisp, fresh scents to mimic the tall pine trees found in a Scandinavian forest or opt for warm, spicy notes like cinnamon and nutmeg for a more traditional experience.
