Modern Scandinavian Christmas Home Decor for Living Room

Beautiful Advent Decor in the Natural Nordic Style

It’s that time of the year again!

Christmas season is just around the corner.

There’s something truly enchanting about this time of year, isn’t there? The twinkling lights, the cozy gatherings around a roaring fire, and of course, the fantastic decorations!

If you’re anything like me, you’ll keep the baroquesque grand gilding, the glossy colorful decorations, and most of the glitter out of the house and go for more natural elements, with an accent sparkle here and there. We’re talking about embracing the simple natural, the elegant modern, and the oh-so-inviting warm accents of natural light.

I love how the Scandinavian-style Christmas decor is both so classy and natural at the same time! It’s where tradition meets modern aesthetics, and the result is pure holiday charme.

Just the perfect mix for a cozy living space during the holidays.

This article highlights a few Christmas home decor ideas in a rather neutral palette that feels festive yet natural and cozy.

Foldable paper stars are one of my all-time favorite decor items during the holiday season and in winter in general.

They are a warm welcome to the house, just plain, or enlightened with twinkle lights around. I love the patterns and textures, especially the ones shown here – in natural paper and wood.


Décor tip: Put them up on your windows, hang a group of stars into a corner in your house, on a plain wall, or on your front door. The subtle touches will not feel too styled but spread this beautiful warmth around your home.

Advent Wreath Ideas

An advent wreath is such a beautiful item that not only makes a stunning centerpiece for your dining table or coffee table but also invites the family to gather for a moment every night and be present. A welcome slow-down during this season when life often feels so hectic and stressful.

The hand-picked advent wreaths are basic, with clean lines. Leave them as they are for a super reduced modern look, or add some fresh greenery, pine cones, a few beautiful baubles, and little decor pieces to the neutral base, for more texture and a more traditional living room look and feel.

An advent calendar in the living rooms corner and stocking on your mantel are the ultimate signs that Christmas is just around the corner.

I’ve found some beautiful ones if you love the modern, graphic style and nice textures!

Christmas Tree Alternative

For a Small Apartment

If you have a small apartment or are just not a fan of Christmas trees, skip the stress of buying a real tree, save the space in your cellar for a fake tree, and simply go with a Christmas tree alternative.

We’ve seen them trending over the past years and you can get them in every material and shape.

This one’s on the smaller side and makes for a great focus piece on a large coffee table, next to your fireplace, or on a sideboard in your living room. I love how you can decorate it with tea-light candles and bring in some warm natural light at night!

Must-Have Hangers for Christmas Tree

Beautiful Natural Christmas Ornaments

There are just sooo many ornaments for Christmas trees and buying new ones every year can get out of hand quickly (where in the world do you store all those baubles year round?!?).

This selection, except for the foldable honeycomb baubles, is made from wood. Those ornaments in natural materials are classy and timeless and can be combined with whatever ornament selection you might already have at home.

I’m sure with these, not only your christmas tree, but also your table, bookshelf, garland, and front door are well decorated.
