18 Swedish Christmas Decorations & Ideas

Charming Swedish Christmas Winterscape with vintage red sled and presents in a basket

We are on a roll with Scandinavian Christmas inspiration, and if your fingers are in a pinning mood, I think I may have you covered with this post, brimming with Swedish Christmas spirit as well! While I discovered a couple of years ago that I have more Irish blood than Swedish, I grew up in a home filled with Swedish decor and traditions, and our childhood Christmases were filled with Swedish touches that made the season so special. I have shared some of the Swedish love with my own children, and the only pancakes they know are the Swedish ones I made them almost every weekend!

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

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.

    These photos are so close to my heart. Thank you for these beautiful pins.

    Hi Michele, God Jul,
    It’s a beautiful post, I noticed you had 8. And 16. (Dreamy Whites ) last home as to Swedish style, I love her new old home do Nordic in so many ways. Most of these foto’s I’ve had saved to my file and dream of living this Swedish whiteness.
    Looking forward to your reveal of your desert home.

      Hi Dore! Did you see Maria’s Christmas feature in the latest issue of Romantic Homes? I just picked it up yesterday…beautiful! Thanks for adding to the beauty. I’m here at the desert home now. My husband just finished a mobile island/bar that I’ll paint tomorrow. Then a few more pieces of art before I return to Chicagoland. More pics soon! 🙂

    Hi Michele,
    You know I love this Stuff!!!! Especially that sweet little tree on the bare floor in the bedroom 🌲 Also I recently stripped down my chandelier taking off all the crystals. I think I’ll put a simple garland on it like the one you showed. Love that look!
    Thanks my friend,
    Holly

      I have stripped down chandeliers as well! Often a cleaner look and easier to clean! xox
