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!!!).
My idea of heaven on earth.
I may have stared for 10 minutes or more.
Please bring me that bench, Santa.
So Nordic French.
Another glimpse of that heavenly dining room.
So clearly DreamyWhites…so clearly charming.
9. Ever longed to paint a wood floor?

Modern vintage lovely.

I spy candles on the tree.
I need a pinecone garland NOW.
How I love how that shocking pink works!
That chunky knit tree skirt.
How inviting is this in the foyer?
A tree on the porch is just so perfect.
Loving the candles in the chandelier.
So simple lovely.
I can make those black stars! Let’s make ’em.
Who wouldn’t volunteer to do the dishes?
What an artful composition.
So much to admire in Swedish sensibilities and simplicity! Make sure to take PART TWO for a spin!
