As you know I’m a big fan of all things Scandinavian – not just Nordic noir like The Bridge (although I really do miss Saga) and the clean simple lines of Scandinavian furniture, but also the little touches they add at Christmas, like this delicious log cabin we visited in Norway for some hot berry juice. Just adding simple accessories like a red tin heart or candle or a rustic wreath can give your home a touch of Scandinavian flair. I love that their decorations are so simple – wood is obviously very popular – but by using a splash of berry red it instantly makes it feel like Christmas.
Which is why I was so thrilled when the House of Fraser home department sent me a Christmas stocking full of Scandinavian-inspired goodies from their Christmas range of Linea home accessories, the perfect gifts for our new home, which we moved into last week. I’m particularly delighted with the red candle, but also the sweet little hot water bottle cover, which *almost* looks as though you’ve knitted it yourself.
And isn’t this bauble fab? Not only great for adding a little Scandinavian style to the home during the festive season but also I think any of these would make great gifts (and if you hurry, you’ll be able to pick up some bargains because many of the items are on sale at the moment).
