Mini Christmas Home Tour

Mini Christmas Home Tour

Christmas Day is less than two weeks away (there are now three candles burning in the candleholder above) and our apartment is starting too look quite festive. Tomorrow we’re buying our christmas tree and the decor will be complete but until then I thought I’d give you a mini christmas home tour.

Let’s start off in the living room. I’ve gone for a neutral color scheme with pops of forrest green and burgundy. Most of the decorations are some sort of light source but to be honest I feel like that is what creates a festive atmosphere. That and scents, so naturally I have a scented candle here. This one is from & Other Stories and it is their 2015 fall/winter scent. What really sold me on this was the gorgeous pot it comes in with the dark green glaze and as the color might suggest it has a woodsy scent.

In the bedroom I’ve gone for white and grey. I don’t know how it is in the rest of the world but in Sweden most homes have some sort of advent star in their windows. This is a classic paper star but there are also ones in brass, copper or even wood.

To match the star I also got this string light for the bed to make it extra festive. The sheets are from H&M Home last year but they have some similar ones this year too.

I also just had to show you my chocolate advent calendar. It is the prettiest one I’ve ever seen and it acts as a Christmas decoration on its own. The chocolate figures inside are three-dimensional and oh so delicious.

Lastly I’m giving you a little sneak peak of my bar cabinet setup. We are throwing the christmas festivities at ours this year and I thought I’d show you how I plan on setting the table and give you a full tour of the bar as we get closer to the day.

I hope you are all having a lovely December so far and I’ll talk to you soon!

Christmas Ornament Wishlist

Christmas Ornament Wishlist - Anthropologie bauble set

December is here and the festivities can officially begin! I will be posting christmasy content all through December so stay tuned. Todays post is a short but sweet one. Ever since I’ve been little we’ve had a huge Christmas tree filled with all kinds of baubles and ornaments. Naturally I wanted to continue in the same style when I moved out so every year since then I try to add a few new and exciting pieces to my collection and this is the list of the ones I’ve had my eye on for this year. I found that when I was looking at ornaments I was particularly interested in three different categories so I’ve divided this into Tropical, Edible and Classic ornaments. The picture above is a set of baubles from Anthropologie that you can find here.

The Tropical

Cactus from Oliver Bonas, Parrot from Liberty London and Assorted Tropical Ornaments from West Elm, sadly these last three are no longer available online but if you have a West Elm store near you I would definitely recommend popping by to see if they are in stock.
