After a twelve-months like no other, I cannot wait for Christmas to arrive. While we may all be celebrating it very differently this year, escaping for just a few days into a world filled with cinnamon, fairy lights and carols will be most welcome.
When it comes to the happy task of decorating our home for the festive season, it will probably come as no surprise to learn that, in true Nordic Christmas style, I always choose a more pared back and carefully considered look.
Over the years, I’ve collected many decorations on my travels, so when I open our box of decorations each year lots of happy memories always come flooding back; from the hand-made glass icicles I picked up on a very hot summer’s day in Vancouver, to the traditional wooden baubles from a birthday trip to Berlin, and of course many pieces from more recent trips to Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen.
But, sitting perfectly alongside all these small treasures for the first time this year, are a new collection of beautiful paper decorations from a brand I love, Broste Copenhagen.
A distinct minimal style
As you would expect, all the designs are a true testament to Design Director, Kristina Dam’s distinct minimal style. Available in a gorgeous range of colours, shapes and sizes, I chose a tree topper, ornaments, and decorative pieces in soft natural shades.
Designed to minimise waste, the paper decorations also come flat. All you need to do is unfold them and carefully fasten them together with the magnets hidden inside. This also means they are super safe in the hands of my over-excited five-year old Christmas helper too.
The perfect festive touch
Whether hung on the tree, grouped together with twinkling candlelight across the mantelpiece, or as a striking addition to our Christmas table, these decorations from Broste Copenhagen add the perfect festive touch without the fuss.
Which I’m sure you will agree looks perfect for this year and every year.
