Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Minimalist Christmas at the design hotel

It's that time of the year again. I've held back on all the Christmas stuff until now, but since it is the first Advent Sunday next weekend, I guess it is time now. Or do you think it's too early? Am I stressing you out? I wanted to start off carefully, not to overwhelm anyone, so I chose some photos that aren't "over-the-top-christmassy".

I found this article in Bo Bedre about a couple staying at a stylish design hotel for a whole year while their house is being built. Of course they are celebrating the holidays there too, so now they have decorated the hotel studio apartment for Christmas. It's quite minimalistic, and I like the idea of spraypainting the tree and bay leaf wreath to get it to match the interiors. And I'm totally convinced that my own Christmas tree this year will be one of those tiny ones in a pot, preferably one that looks a little threadbare and wonky!

    I'd be terrified of making a mess in any hotel which was so white and clean!

    First of all: your timing is perfect! right now is the time when everything is starting up slowly.

    I love this hotel room, but I see no christmas in it. Everything is so cold and for my taste there's just too little holiday spirit, even if it's a very modern style.

    The chair on the photo is fantastic. Does someone maybe know which brand it is or who the designer is?
