the Nordic Christmas
My mom is a designer, best known for her elaborate Christmas decorations. My tastes are more subdued but I take my queue in selecting a theme from her. For the past few years, I have been focused on a natural, earthy, simple theme. Leave it to Domino for summarizing what I was going for - Nordic Christmas. This Christmas, I kept it even easier, adorning the tree only with handmade snowflakes, wicker stars from IKEA and organic candy canes (which have a traditional look to them) and of course lots and lots of white lights. But I was inspired to wrap my own branches with yarn for the fireplace and window vignettes. Hei Norway!
