What is Nordic Christmas Décor?

Nordic décor mixes elements of contemporary design with minimalism. It also incorporates touches of rustic elements like wood and evergreens. Scandi-style is often seen as a Christmas decorating theme that adds to your staple pieces instead of coming up with a completely new look for your home. The result is a simple yet elegant display of holiday cheer that seamlessly blends into your year-round decorations.

The Danish word "hygge" is often referenced in Nordic décor. It refers to finding comfort in simplistic things such as a cozy atmosphere. Integrate this concept by adding warmth to your spaces with rustic elements. Think a faux fur throw or rug in your living room, flameless candles on your mantelpiece, and wooden accents atop console tables.

A neutral palette is often embraced with the Nordic theme. The most common shades used are white and silver. However, modern designs also fuse contrasting hues to add harmony in colors like red and green. Furthermore, draw inspiration from snow-covered regions in Northern Europe with flocked details and metallic accents.

How Do You Decorate for a Nordic Christmas?

Simplicity is the key to achieving an authentic Nordic Christmas décor. Choose a sparse artificial tree for a more organic look. Their widely-spaced branches allow you to display minimal Nordic Christmas ornaments. Showcase glass balls, crystal finials, and other frosted decorations to add delicate charm. Top it off with a Capiz white star for a polished finish.

Add a subtle pop of color with traditional greenery in your spaces. Go for flocked artificial pieces to mimic snow-kissed evergreens. Hang a wreath on inside doors like your bedroom or home office. Or make a simple flower arrangement of poinsettia picks on your coffee table vignette.

When hosting a meal for friends and family, create a charming centerpiece by draping a garland across the table. Display it as is or embellish it with a handful of Nordic Christmas decorations. Use vintage tableware, then place votive candles to add a romantic atmosphere to your Christmas Eve feast.

Recreate the Northern lights with an elegant outdoor light display. Brighten up entryways with fairy string lights that evoke a soft, white glow. Think bursting star lights on windows or a strategically placed red lantern by the front door. Indoors, place candles on your fireplace mantel, then fill in the gaps with geometric decorative accents.

For a modern take on Christmas decorating, opt for Nordic Christmas ornaments. These are simple yet elegant pieces that blend effortlessly into any home style.
