Following the trend of Scandinavian minimalism in recent years, at Christmas we can decorate home with scandi atmospheres, also paying attention to sustainability.
The key to the scandi atmosphere is to find the balance between clean lines and comfort. A simple all-white background works well to take advantage of natural light, but at the same time it brings a slightly “cold” feeling that should be warmed with warm tones and touches of color.
On the darkest evenings, your scandi-inspired home can become very welcoming by candlelight: for example, lanterns create the perfect Nordic chalet look.

Although heat and light are at the center of this trend, this year decorating the house for Christmas in the style of scandi becomes cheaper and more environmentally friendly. Keeping the décor natural and functional has never been more chic, as DIY ornaments and festive greenery are incorporated into this style to create an elegant Christmas space.

Scandi minimalism is classic and rustic at the same time: you can’t miss wooden animals and fake furs, with which you can make your space inviting and personal.
