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!
Should you favor your Swedish style with timeless elegance, you will love this post with inspiration from Katrin Cargill.
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.
