Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Just a tad bit more Xmas

Are you all getting tired of all the Christmas inspiration I'm posting? Do you think it's too early? I know all of you US readers are celebrating Thanksgiving right now, but in Sweden, it's just about time to put up the first Christmas decorations as we celebrate Advent Sundays, and the first Advent is this Sunday.

This set of photos shot by Norwegian photographer Sandra Aslaksen shows some Christmas decor, but I think it's done right here, not overwhelming and "too much", just an added touch of sparkle and light. And that home office in the last photos? Awesome!

    Vilka fina och inspirerande bilder du bjuder på! Jag har lust att ta fram en högtrycksspruta, ladda med vit målarfärg och gå loss här hemma. Börja om från början med en vit bas och lägga till snygga detaljer allt eftersom, precis som hemmen i bildreportaget har gjort! Ahhh!

    Love those gorgeous figs! Such a rich contrast, and such deep red! I want to live here, or re-do my apartment. So crisp, and clean, yet warm, festive, cozy, and sparkly!

    So gorgeous!!! I'm a bit sceptical to starting with Christmas decorations too early... the first Advent Sunday is my starting point so now is the right time!

    This is lovely and understated... please do continue with the seasonal posts! The way the sparkles and candlelight compliment the crisp white and natural textures is just right. I suppose... Happy First Advent Sunday Eve :) I'm so intrigued by this holiday tradition and I love that your blog highlights aspects of Swedish culture alongside your gorgeous, modern design sensibility. Thank you!
