Today I am bringing you inspiration to decorate a Scandinavian Christmas tree. December is finally here so it’s only fitting to share the Christmas tree I decorated in the last of the three stylings I did for Rosendahl with the Karen Blixen line.
Last week I brought you inspiration for a Scandinavian Christmas table and the week before I shared a Nordic Christmas decoration. Again this week you can vote for your favourite tree and have the chance to win a wall clock by Arne Jacobsen – check it out right here.
To me Christmas is a magical time filled with laughter, love and family. I wanted to capture the magical Christmas spirit with almost a childish feel to it, so I went all out with cute little wooden animals designed by Kay Bojesen in the 1940’s and 1950’s. The colour scheme was the same dark blue hues from the Christmas table with natural leather and light wooden details and lots of gold and silver to give the proper Christmas feeling. No Christmas tree without candlelight in my world, so of course I went for real candles! And lots of presents under the tree just waiting to be unwrapped.
To set the scene for a magical Christmas Eve – or morning depending on when you celebrate, I used the cutest Alphabet blocks by Kay Bojesen. I love these! It is such a great gift for the little ones as they get to practice their letters and stimulate their sense of shape and form. To complete the look around the tree, I used the Elephant by Kay Bojesen, Bear by Kay Bojesen and Rabbit by Kay Bojesen. Aren’t they the cutest?
I decorated the tree with candles from Broste Copenhagen, the most gorgeous handmade leather cones by Strups (they come in black too and will only get better year by year as the patina sets in) and a mix of pendents from the Karen Blixen line (some of these are actually on sale right now).
Under the tree I used my new Christmas tree rug by Malling Living. I love how simple and elegant this is – a true classic for years to come. The basket is by Broste Copenhagen and so is the blue pouf – find a retailer here.
So what’s your favourite styling of the three? I am curious to know – please share in the comments below, thanks.
Who’s excited for December? I sure am! I’ve already shared a ton of Christmas inspiration with you in the last few weeks and I there is more to come. Check out the Christmas archives, if you want to dive in.
