Give your home a stylish update this festive season with NORSK’s edit of rustic Scandi-style Christmas decorations
We may be biased but nobody does Christmas decorating quite like the Scandinavians. From glowing candlelight to delicate flower wreaths, when it comes to Christmas decorations we like to keep things simple. Of course, the blanket of snow we have always helps, too.
While we can’t do much about the snow, we can help you with the decorations. We’ve been busy choosing our favourite Scandi-style Christmas decorations which you can now buy both in store and in our online shop. You won’t find any gaudy baubles or tinsel here; just our edit of stylish, simple decorations which will look beautiful in any home.
These metal decorations by Danish brand Walther & Co – which include miniature houses, trees, angels, rocking horses and more – are a real favourite of ours. Delicately handmade and inspired by nature and Nordic traditions, they are bursting with personality and really add a touch of Christmas magic.
In place of bright and gaudy decorations, we prefer paired back shades and materials, such as these House Doctor paper decorations in simple star and angel shapes. We especially love these large flame-inspired designs. They look wonderful on the Christmas table, mantlepiece or against the dark boughs of the Christmas tree, and why not tie different lengths of ribbon to them and hang them around the house.
Speaking of Christmas trees, why just have one when you can have several? Our Christmas tree ornaments from House Doctor come ready lit with fairy lights for instant Christmas impact. This minimalist unadorned tree standing in a faux-moss ball adds a rustic look, while this understated pine in a white log pot is beautifully simple.
Our Wild Moss Wreath by House Doctor looks just like the real thing and can be used in all manner of decorative ways; as a collar for candles, hung up on walls or mirrors, or with added decorations as a table centrepiece.
The advent candle is an important tradition in Scandinavia. Traditionally we light one candle on each of the Sundays of advent and the four candles symbolise joy, hope, longing and peace. This large calendar candle from House Doctor will create a lovely cosy atmosphere in your home and build excitement as you count down to the big day!
Make sure you stock up on dinner candles, of course, and these star candle holders and tall brass candle stands by House Doctor add elegance and can be used all year round. And, talking of dinner, we have a number of elegantly understated Christmas napkins to choose from.
Discover all of this and much more in the NORSK Christmas shop. God jul!
