nordic christmas

so, it may only just be august, but all this gloomy weather has got me looking forward to the festive season - cosy warm blankets, cups of tea and home made soups - yum! this will be my first christmas in my new house, last christmas was a stressful occasion, i was in between jobs and in between houses – so i didn’t even get the chance to decorate!

i’ve been pinning some of my favourite nordic/scandinavian style christmas ideas over the past few days, and it’s got me really excited for purchasing my first christmas tree! my living room is predominantly grey, with touches of  pewter purple – which fits perfectly with my love of a monochrome christmas.

i think this year my colour scheme will be black and white, with grey and silver decorations - though i might experiment by adding a little gold! i love the idea of using the DIY letter bunting from this modern life, to decorate the walls with lovely festive phrases. light string cotton balls make a great, softer alternative to LED string lights, they would be great added to the tree! i love paper decorations and these patterned monochrome ones from minico are a great way to get crafty at home.
