If minimalism is your thing, you’ll love the Scandinavian Christmas decorating style. This pared-down holiday decorating theme draws inspiration from the Scandinavian region, with lots of natural touches and homespun accents. Simplicity and homey charm are key for this unpretentious Christmas look.
Here are a few basics you can use as a foundation for this style: natural wood decorations, greenery swags and wreaths, trees dappled with homemade ornaments, and presents wrapped in brown paper and tied with twine. To cozy it all up, you might want to add textural touches of snuggly faux fur—perhaps a rug, throw blanket, or tree skirt.
After you have the basics in place, you can enhance the Scandinavian holiday decorating style with one of three palettes (or use some combination to create a look that is all your own!):
1) stark black and pristine white
2) icy/frosted with metallic golden touches and candles
3) red and white or cream, especially Nordic patterns
