Natural Holiday, Sweden

from Lantliv magazine (Country Life, Sweden) Photo Carina Olander.

Someday I’d like to visit Sweden. Either in the darkest winter, or in the endless sunshine of summer. For now, I live vicariously through books and blogs.

This article in Lantliv magazine sums up the airy, bright beauty of the northern winter light. I’m smitten by the simple paper and evergreen decorations in this house where the Norberg family lives. It makes me think that the simplest things: apples, cut paper, pinecones, hyacinths and pine boughs are the best way to deck the halls. I’ll be adding the orange of clementines and the red of pomegranates too.

    I like the clean, uncluttered lines. The empty space is as important as the rest!

    Yes, very neat and uncluttered. Often, I choose simple style over fancy style🙂

    Scandinavian style is so gorgeous. It always reminds me of bleached driftwood and cosy fires.
