Natural elements, greenery and hand-crafted decorations are key elements for a true Scandi-style Christmas, a tree, however, is not.
The festive season is just around the corner and it's the perfect time of year to embrace Scandi décor and bring some hygge into your home.

A Scandinavian Christmas is all about welcoming the seasonal change by creating a cosy atmosphere throughout your home – adding a touch of soft lighting with festive candles and wool throws is a great way to do this.
There’s nothing better than cosying up with your favourite book and a baked Christmas treat by the fire, is there? Most Scandinavian homes will have a gingerbread house as decoration to get all the family involved in the Christmas spirit. Traditional bakes include Lussekatt – a sweet saffron bun decorated with raisins – and Glögg – a homemade Swedish mulled wine usually served with blanched almonds, raisins and a ginger biscuit to dunk. These Christmassy delights are guaranteed to fill your home with a warm festive aroma.
Natural elements, greenery and hand-crafted decorations are always key to creating a Scandi feel to your Christmas. You can do this by creating a cluster with branches, pinecones, and dried leaves to decorate your table or mantelpiece.
