Inspiring Christmas Touches in a Beautiful Swedish Home

Inspiring Christmas Touches in a Beautiful Swedish Home


I think it’s time for some more Christmas inspiration, do you? And what better than to return to the beautiful Swedish home of photographer and stylist Emelie Sundberg? You might recall the tour back in February – which was understandably hugely popular, and it comes as no surprise that Emelie’s home is equally beautiful and cosy at Christmas time. Think pretty snow flowers and star lanterns, homemade wreaths, amaryllis, hyacinths, a wonderful Christmas tree and of course, lots of candlelight. There’s inspiration to be found every corner! 
I love the simple idea of storing white candles in a glass vessel. Also note the hyacinths in small* and large glass vases* – this is common a common sight at Christmas in Sweden and makes for a beautiful display that fills the home with a fresh scent! Note also the subtle boxwood wreaths. 

I’ve always loved this type of wine glass storage, it’s perfect for entertaining too! 

I love pretty amaryllis at Christmas time – and this salmon pink version adds a pop of colour! 

A pretty Sputnik star lantern* hangs over a traditional ‘adventsljustake’ (advent candleholder) in the window. 

The fireplace has been decorated with a simple straw wreath and candle display. 

A bouquet of amaryllis brightens up the desk in Emelie’s study. It’s also lovely to have a candle lit while you’re working – it’s not something I would have thought of living in England, but these days I often light a candle on my desk to help brighten up the winter darkness and create a calm feel (needed at this time of year, right?). 

How beautiful!

I hope you feel as inspired by Emelie’s home as I do. 

Is there anything that stood out to you? Also, I’m really curious – do you have the same type of Christmas flowers in your country?

I loved reading your comments about my three new lights yesterday. I was curious to read that in order for a room to feel complete and practical, you should have at least four sources of light. I feel I’m finally getting there now – do you have enough lighting in your home? 

Ha det så bra!
