Rustic scandi-style Christmas decorating ideas

Bring a glittery Nordic forest feel to your home with sparkly fabrics, rustic woodgrain and twiggy decorations all cosied up with the softest sheepskin

Christmas comes but once a year so when it does make it a truly gorgeous affair with a woodland themed table, embroidered cream linen, wooden chairs, glittery accessories, lanterns and sparkly crackers!

Continue the rustic woodland theme throughout the house without forgetting the front door! Hang a customised woodland wreath with added sparkle from snowflakes, frosty spray, wooden hearts and a frosty hedgehog.

Create a luxurious laid-back living room by covering sofas, chairs and floors with sumptuous sheepskin and slouchy wool bean bags. Give the tree a frosted theme, light tea lights and ramp up the wood burner then snuggle down and wait for the sound of those jungle bells!

Who said adults can’t have stockings? For a sophisticated take on the Christmas stocking, wrap each gift separately and make sure the ‘stocking’ (we love these luxurious knitted slippers) is part of the present.

Trim a banister with a natural garland such as this eucalyptus one which looks fabulous against wood and smells even better. Decorate with silver balls, stars and tiny woodland creatures for a whimsical twist.

Before you head off to bed, treat yourself to a nice cup of tea and a mince pie served on classic and elegant white china along with pretty embroidered napkins to mop up crumbs.

Take the woodland theme into the bedroom, snuggling up under faux fur throws beneath festive garlands and a simple twig tree. Light tea lights to create a magical glow while you unwind and prepare for a long slumber.
