Lena's Serene Swedish Home At Christmas

Lena’s Serene Swedish Home At Christmas

When it comes to decorating Lena Lidman has one of those natural gifts - the ability to pick up unique vintage pieces and place them seamlessly into the home. The result is a beautifully balanced look - neutral and serene yet warm and inviting. At Christmas, she adds subtle touches: a star here, a garland of angels there. Keep a look out for the spruce and pine in vases. And for those of you who don't celebrate 'Jul' there's plenty to feel inspired by all the same. So pull up a chair, we're off to Umeå, in the North of Sweden for the full tour! 

I love a window seat - after all, everyone needs a little 'me time', especially at this time of the year, and it's a perfect spot from which to sit and watch the world go by. 

The cabinet was a vintage find, and Lena has given it a lick of paint to match the kitchen cabinets. 

The painting and sculpture were picked up at Stockholm second hand shop Bergenström Rekvisita. Note how the shelf itself is made up of a simple plank of wood balanced on magazines. 

Lena has painted the wooden bookshelves to match the wall so they blend seamlessly into the room - I have a feeling these ones are from IKEA. 

Such a beautiful home. I love the vintage touches - and all the pretty decorations. 

Is there anything that stood out to you? 

Ready to deck the halls with boughs of.... eucalyptus, boxwood and spruce? See more Scandi christmas inspiration here: 

I'm off to the summer cottage today to see how our tiny cabin build is going. I hear the internal wood panelling is being fitted - so exciting!! I can't wait to see everything and share an update here soon. In the meantime, keep an eye on my instagram stories if you're feeling curious!
