45 Swedish Farmhouse Christmas Moments {Part 1}

Swedish Farmhouse Christmas Decorating Interior Design

Swedish farmhouse style has a homey,
timeless quality that is so refreshing to
my eyes and spirit…especially at Christmas
when fresh greenery and simple (and often handmade)
decorating elements are a magical combination.

This is Part One, and you can find Part Two right here. (Affiliate links follow and when used, won’t cost you extra, yet I’ll earn a few pennies.)

I’m sure my love of white comes from my
Scandinavian heritage, and you may know that
the light there is very important since 
daylight is so limited in winter.

Today in Stockholm, for example, the sunrise
came at 8:30 and the sun set at 2:30!

Bring on the candlelight,
the white painted everything,
the fresh garlands and wreaths,
the casual and country furnishings,
the bare wood floors, and the
uncluttered spare look I love.

I hope to bring you an update on the fixer upper
this week since we were able to install a few doors
and shutters, and are in the home stretch
(at the busiest time of year!!!).

    absolutely fabulous collection of photos, exactly my type of Christmas decorating, simple perfection. Our decorating style here in France is a classic mixture of British/French/Scandinavian!

    Once again Michele, you have captured my eyes, ears, and heart with this style post. Beyond magnificent with all of the images. Inspiration at its finest!

    • December 12, 2016 / 4:39 pm

      who can stop collecting ideas!?! of course, i must execute a few of my own now which is the tough part since it involves not staring out the window at the beautiful silent snowfall! xox

  3. December 12, 2016 / 12:16 pm

    I love everything! The simplicity of the Scandinavian style makes it look elegant, beautiful and comfy at the same time. Thanks for sharing! I hope that you are safe and not affected too much by the storm.

      staying safe and really got to savor and enjoy the snowglobe day. it makes everything so pristine and blanketed in my favorite color! thanks for visiting, friend. xox

    Michele, thank you for all the Scandinavian goodness you've been sharing with us! It speaks to my soul! I don't know how they deal with so few hours of daylight though! Not sure if I could handle that!

      wouldn't it be hard to be productive as an artist with such a short day? thanks for joining the fun, holly, your comments always brighten my day, gorgeous woman. xox

    I love that you have posted recently on the topic of Swedish interiors and your heritage. Swedish furnishings is my passion in life – acquiring antiques, reproducing them, decorating with new and old pieces, visually drowning myself in every 2Die4 Swedish interior online and in books. Keep posting on this topic, please.

    • December 13, 2016 / 6:21 pm

      I love what you do, Colleen. Thanks for the encouragement, and I will do my best to keep delivering the Swedish lovely, which is so timeless and tranquil that it never gets old for me. xox

    Aaaahhhhh! So lovely. Makes me wonder why I didn't paint my dining chairs white sooner? Doesn't evergreen look great with white. It's funny that all this white doesn't feel cold. Just soothing. I can't seen to have that much color restraint.
    Merry Christmas, my Scandinavian friend!

    • December 13, 2016 / 6:23 pm

      Merry Christmas, Mary Ann! It sure does. Now that I am using brighter, cooler whites in our new home, I find I do have to be careful about keeping things warm. Easier to make that happen with photography tricks!
