Cozy Nordic Christmas Tree & Dining Area

Happy Friday friends! We are enjoying a long long weekend, that actually already started Wednesday. How cool is that! Today we are in London, but I still wanted to show you my cozy Nordic Christmas tree & dining area today.

I have to confess: Our tree is not real this year, I bought a faux tree the other day. Not very Nordic, but I did not enjoy the work that was involved in having a real one last year. We had bought a real one in a pot, thinking we could just plant it outside. Yeah, that did not work out, it dried way before Christmas, even though we watered it and thought we took real good care of it. It was a mess to get rid of it later and I just did not want to do it again. So, long story short, it is a faux one this year. It is the perfect size, fits right into our spot.

I like to decorate the end of the table because it gives some interest to the huge window… the table is simple and I only added these Ikea placemats from last year to it.

There is a bit of a woodland theme going on here. I used my wood slice centerpiece , added a little faux fur tree with a deer and a string of fairy lights. That’s all and I love it!

Every year I love putting up my favourite Christmas cards and this time they were simply put on my farmhouse ladder using washi tape.

Now onto the tree:

The only new ornaments this year are the lovely wooden farmhouse style ornaments my friend Sam sent me for our 2017 Ornament Exchange .

I put the tree base inside this cozy looking felt basket.

    I am sure I commented here I just don’t know what happened. Well, as you know I love your clean style Katrin. The Christmas tree is perfect with just the white ornaments. Sometimes when it is too overloaded you find that it can be tiresome for the eyes. This is fresh and airy!!

    I adore this so much! My husband and I are both mostly Nordic and want to jump into that culture. This is great inspiration!

    Simple, stylish and of so beautiful. You’re such an inspiration Katrin. You epitomize the whole concept of elegant minimalism and I’m with you on the whole real Christmas tree inside thing. We’ve always had a faux one which I must admit we haven’t even put up yet. Most of the time we tend to decorate our trees outside, since the weather is so gorgeous this time of the year in South Africa

      Aw you are too sweet, Thank you Michelle for your compliment. I am really happy with the faux tree. I can imagine you celebrate in – and outside. My hubbies Christmases in Argentina as a child were like that he says… BBQ parties because it is summer there too now. Something really so strange for me, but I can imagine it being very special too! Enjoy!

    Absolutely in love with the little table tree tableau! The deer is adorable, I want one too! Your dining area is so beautiful with your cozy decor, so inviting. Your new tree looks perfect in the felt basket, much better than any tree skirt that I use! You have really kreated the most lovely cozy Nordic Christmas in your home. Thank-you for a truly wonderful post!

      Aw Thank you that means so much! I am happy with the tree, faux or not, it is so easy to keep up and the felt basket covers up the ugly tree stand, haha. Thank you for stopping by Ellen, have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
