Christmas can be a time where we lose our sense of style and can easily get influenced by filling the home with tat! I always say that a home should reflect the people who live in it, so why shouldn’t the Christmas decorations do that too?! This year I’m kind of in love with sparse but clever seasonal decorating, I don’t feel the need to cram my home with an unnecessary amount of ornaments, tinsel and clutter (to be honest that makes me feel a little sick). I was refreshingly reassured about my want for minimal Christmas decor when I stumbled on the Swedish article.
Ylva’s home is absolutely stunning, clean and simple but layered enough to feel warm, creative and inviting. Hopefully you’ll agree when you see the pictures below.
Ylva tips for Advent mood:
1st Take advantage of what nature has to offer. Small spruce, pine cones, twigs, etc. are great Christmas decorations.
2nd Batch decorations and decorations instead of spreading them out. It gives a calmer atmosphere.
3rd Revel in candlelight. It creates the atmosphere in the house. source
It is a tradition to gather family and friends and have fun of Advent and now, we have plenty of space. We usually invite to craft evenings. It’s fun to make your own Christmas cards, says Ylva. source
