Scandinavian Christmas Style

Have you been busy decking the halls? Truth be told – I haven’t gone crazy this season. I’m not sure if my hesitation to go all out decorating for Christmas is because of all the hectic house construction over the last year or that my holiday style is changing. Over time I’ve been increasingly drawn to the simple style of the Scandinavian Christmas. The style embraces minimalist, rustic and natural elements that I’m loving this season. To show you, I’ve pulled some of my favorite images featuring this Nordic style – all found on my Holiday Decorating Ideas board on Pinterest (yes, still a go to place to organize images and inspiration).

Friday Finds :: Classic Christmas with Garnet Hill

I have to admit that I’m lacking the motivation to decorate our house for Christmas this year. Because the last year has been full of exhausting house renovations, I’ve hesitated to pull out all the holiday decorations, just to put them right back a few weeks later. Do you know the feeling?

However, my mood quickly changed when I recently received the sweetest felt stockings in the mail from Garnet Hill. Part of the Hable Christmas Stocking Collection (now on sale!), the stockings come in a variety of timeless themes and can also be monogrammed for a personalized touch. I love that they are generous in size too – lots of room for Santa’s goodies!
