Christmas decorations from Nordic House
Now it’s finally December, I think it’s time to get decorating! There is nothing I love more than preparing my home for Christmas, and to welcome guests for the festive season. Every year the excitement I feel bringing out my Christmas decorations takes me right back to childhood. And of course, each year I add to my collection, acquiring new pieces from the Nordic House shop – I often have so many favourites that I can’t resist!
It’s felt like Christmas for a long time for me – we headed over to Scandinavia in the summer to choose all the products we would be bringing back to the UK to share with you, and it’s so satisfying to see the fruits of our labours paying off as our decorations start to fly off the shelves! We’ve been so busy this year in the run up to Christmas that I’ve barely had time to draw breath. But I just had to find time to introduce you to some of my absolute favourite pieces from this year’s Christmas Décor Collection… I love them all, so as always it’s been a challenge picking my highlights, but here goes…
(Click on pictures to find out more – I have to say we have truly been selling out of many products already so if you love something, please don’t delay in ordering!)
Our pure white ceramic deer have real elegance and look simply gorgeous as part of a winter display – decorative enough to make an impact, yet simple enough for any pared-down Scandi interior. You can combine them with additional designs in our Nordic woodland collection to create a stunning seasonal tableau.
Looking for all the world as if they’ve been discovered in a far-off Swedish forest, our resin antlers are sculptural, textural and quintessentially Scandinavian. We love to bring nature indoors in the autumn and winter months, and these incredibly realistic antlers will form amazing displays all around our homes this season.
Perfectly styled to add a hint of this season’s geometric style to your tree, these pure white ceramic baubles will stand out beautifully against the fresh green tones of your tree. They come in a set of three, each of which is pleasingly different and all of which are Scandinavian through and through.
Simplicity is the key to these lovely solid glass decorations, which are beautifully crafted to catch the light and add subtle sparkle to your tree. Mix and match with our glass hanging angels and you’ll create the prettiest displays in true Scandinavian style.
Whether draped across your mantelpiece or strung out along a seasonal dining table, this adorable string of pure white snowberries brings a little winter magic indoors. All our faux flowers, foliage and succulents are tantalisingly lifelike – you have to get pretty close to know you haven’t encountered the real thing.
With its branches dusted in faux snow and its trunk encased in natural hessian, this gorgeous tree will create the warmest welcome even in the depths of winter. Along with its tiny counterpart, this characterful tree is a wonderful way to add Christmas magic anywhere in your home – standing tall by a fireplace or setting the scene in your hallway.
Here’s a beautifully versatile candle box with a smart aged brass edging. Inside is a mirrored base plus a removable holder that’s perfect for holding four advent candles in the run-up to Christmas. At other times of year, this box makes a lovely candle tank or display box, its mirrored base gleaming beautifully to enhance the treasures within.
Beautifully realistic and wonderfully recreated with an antiqued silver finish, these adorable pine cones will bring the magic of the wintry forest into your home. Pile them high in a bowl or use them to add a rich layer of metallic texture to any table setting or festive display around your home.
This cheery red & white gingham runner will make a lovely addition to your dining table. Gingham is a quintessentially Scandinavian fabric, so this table linen is a great way to conjure a traditional Swedish look, and the perfect starting point for a red-and-white Christmas scheme.
Add a welcome shot of colour to your home this season with our pretty red berry branch, which is so cheerily lifelike you’ll feel instantly Christmassy. The attention to detail is mesmerising and you’ll find a myriad uses for it, adding the warmth and freshness of greenery without the responsibly of plant watering – bliss!
Our pure white star-shaped candles are as Christmassy as they come, the perfect way to usher in the magic of the season. Delicately shaped with a slightly recessed wick, each one glows enticingly when lit.
I could go on… we have plenty more beautiful decorations to bring a touch of Scandi magic to your home this Christmas.
