I am not writing from a Nordic country, but, well, almost! Seattle has a very large Scandinavian community, which is portrayed in many architectural designs here. I am thinking of these wooden houses and condos, very colorful and cubic, with large windows that invite the exterior vegetation inside. I am suuuuuper inspired by this style (check out my Pinterest board!) and I decided to experiment with Scandinavian DIY ideas for Christmas.
To recreate these decors, you will need to pick up pine branches in the woods. Choose the bushy and perfumed ones; ideally, grand fir boughs! You can use these little twigs to adorn your table, make a wreath, wrap gifts…
I prefer neutral colors (white, grey, brown) to keep the atmosphere minimally woodsy — it is a simple and pure effect. I love this DIY wood table center with candles. To warm up, you can swaddle yourself in this thick knit blanket from IKEA.
If you are inspired by the Scandinavian theme, I encourage you to have a look at the E-Book “A Scandinavian Christmas” from Vincent Layerle. You can download it on http://littlenumerics.fr/un-
