This year, we’re doing Christmas a little differently. We’ve focused on reusable decorations that you can pack away and use year after year – or even leave up all year round. Wood, paper and metal decorations are more durable and sustainable than plastic decorations, and everything in our new collection can be safely stored away for you to use again next year. There’s no whimsical trend-led pieces; just simple, Scandinavian inspired items that you’ll love for many years to come. Several decorations, such as our wooden stars, can even be left up on your walls all year round. Mix in a little faux greenery such as our ever-lasting wreathes and garlands to complete your natural festive look. Read on to discover our top styling tips for a natural, Nordic-inspired Christmas.
Choose decorations you can leave up all year round
Stars aren’t just for Christmas. As demonstrated in the image below, many of our decorations can be left up in your home all year round and don’t have to look overly festive. These black wooden stars are suitably festive when styled next to your Christmas tree, but the photo below could have been taken at any time of year. As long as you don’t go over the top or pair them with fairy lights, stars can be hung on your walls all year round.
Embrace natural materials
Stay clear of artificial materials and embrace natural textures this Christmas. Wicker baskets filled with logs instantly feel festive when placed by your fireplace or beneath your tree, sheepskin throws add a cosy ambiance when placed on the floor or draped over a chair, and the more wreathes the merrier as far as we’re concerned. Look for wood and paper rather than plastic when choosing decorations for your tree or walls.
Transform your existing furniture
You don’t have to buy everything new to transform your home for the festive season. Look at what you already have in each room and think about how you can make it feel festive. Drape a pine garland around a wooden ladder, add a cosy sheepskin cushion to your favourite chair, fill a vase with fairy lights or twine festive foliage around a wire hoop to hang on your wall.
Don’t take what you see at face value; think of creative ideas for how you can use decorations in different ways. Our paper tree and honeycomb decorations are designed to be hung on your tree but you could string them together to create a garland to hang on your wall.
Let there be light
Worried that your decorations don’t look festive enough for your liking? All you need to do is add twinkly lights and decorations that you’ll leave up all year round are instantly transformed. These brass wire globes could be filled with other items such as feathers over the rest of the year, but as soon as you place fairy lights inside, your room becomes a winter wonderland.
