A Scandinavian Style Christmas

This year I will be decorating my home with a Scandinavian inspired Christmas theme. I'm a huge fan of Scandinavian design. I love the simplicity and bold colour palette combined with rustic inspired elements. It instantly yells 'festive' to me. So, I have sorted through my collection of much loved decorations and added some new ones. I'm also making some decorations, the first being this Scandinavian inspired ribbon wreath.

If you like the idea of a Scandinavian inspired Christmas yourself, then have a look at my Pinterest board.
