Traditional Scandinavian Christmas Décor

Traditional Scandi Christmas décor is all about red and white, white and neutrals and lots of rustic touches. Go for a bright red and white Christmas tree with lights, use branches hanging them over the table and other spaces and decorating them with ornaments. Make a cool tree of wood and sticks, use wood slices for décor, incorporate pinecones and evergreens here and there. Place candle lanterns and candleholders all around to create a mood.

Minimalist Scandinavian Christmas Decor

Minimalism is very popular for home décor now, and modern Nordic style is all about minimalism. Use black, white and grey plus neutrals – light-colored wooden finishes and plywood, natural greenery and evergreens. Go for black and white candles, lots of pinecones, greenery and evergreens everywhere to bring a natural feel to the space. Decorate your tree only with white or metallic ornaments and add lights – don’t go excessive and don’t use bright colors. Take a look at more ideas below and creative your ultimate Nordic Christmas space!
