“When it comes to decorating, I like to keep it simple and organic, yet festive. I often use a combination of spruce, pine, and eucalyptus as well as brass ornaments and a hint of burgundy” – Eldrid.
When you live in Norway, there’s never a shortage in Christmas trees to choose from!! And this fine one is a perfect size for the room. I love how it’s been simply decorated with a few baubles and decorative pieces.
“I love to see how the snow covers the mountains, and how the fog casts a magical spell over the fjord in winter” – Eldrid
I’m such a big fan of eucalyptus at Christmas time. Did you know that you can also hang a bouquet from your shower head? It smells wonderful when the hot water runs over it.
What a beautiful place to spend winter! It makes me want to strap some cross-country skis to my feet and head off across the snowy peaks!
Could you imagine spending the winter holidays here?
Other Norwegian homes to love in wintertime:
Meanwhile in Sweden today, its St Lucia day – one of the biggest events in the Christmas calendar. A 400 year-old custom, choirs (and children) across the country will be taking part in a pagan Lucia procession. The central character is ‘Lucia’ who dresses in white with a big red sash and wears a crown of candles in her hair, but children might also to choose to dress as a gingerbread man, Father Christmas as well as other characters. It’s a lovely celebration (even if most are taking place over Zoom this year!).
Wishing you all a great start to the week!
